So I've been pretty busy as of late. I actually got a part-time job since work had been slow. I'm only getting about 8 hours a week but it's a nice fill in for the bills.

On July 27 & 28 I worked as a craft services assistant on the movie The Road. It's based on the book The Road and stars Viggo Mortenson (hope I spelled that right). Man, the hours were long. A days worth of prep on the 26th and driving up to Mt St. Helens. We got to the hotel parking lot at about 3:30am and the truck convoy left for location at 4:15 am. Location was a good hour drive from the hotel. Not much sleep was had. We were doing hot, made to order breakfast, craft services, hot lunch and second meal. All out of the motorhome and on the side of a closed road in an area that still has the blown down trees from the eruption. Sunday was a 17 1/2 hour day. They put us up in a different hotel for the night. There was no cell service in the entire area but the hotel had wifi so I was able to chat. We got up and drove to the first hotel and set up hot breakfast in the parking lot. Then drove in to Portland for location. Although it wasn't as long as the first day it was still a long day. After wrap I had to go back to Beaverton to offload the motorhome. I think I got to bed a little after 1am. That wouldn't have been too bad if I didn't have to get up the next two days to work my part time job at 6am. I actually haven't had a day off since the 25th.

Tomorrow I'll be assisting with another reality casting call. Bravo TV's show, Make Me A Supermodel is holding a casting call in Portland. I've had a few people tell me that I should audition for it. I'm just glad for the work.
