Dream crusher

I'm pinned by my workload right now, squashed under the weight of a hairy, sweaty giant I call The Deadliner. Spent the morning auditioning about 10 actors for a marketing video I'm directing next Monday and Tuesday. Hard to tell people they're just not right for the part. I'm a dream-crusher.

Editing an hour long video today... been working on it forever. Training piece. All the projects are piling on at once, like a horde of desperate bridesmaids pouncing on a tossed bouquet. Like that? Even under the gun I can still whip out a flowery simile.

Pun intended.

A phone call and a air ticket and I could be with you in 48 hours ready to star in your latest production. It'll save you having to say no to all those wannabes...

terri: you have to fire actors too? :)

annie: there is a small fee for advertising here.

Kim: don't know that we could afford you, kim. We don't get to hire many good storytellers... :)

Just pay for the flight, give me a camp bed in the living room and feed me all the coffee I need :)
