It was a good, good weekend. One of the biggest things that happened was our CRUSH short film screening (for donors, cast & crew) on Saturday night. My stomach was in knots all day about it. Would they like it, or would it bomb? It’s hard to fake true reactions and emotions while watching in a group like that. But luckily for Rebecca and I, people authentically responded in all the right ways during all the right parts. When we first screened Piece of Cake back in 2006 to a focus group, the reactions were not anywhere as good (but that could be b/c they were there to critique it). This little film has all the right pieces, it seems. I think the best response of the night was from a dear friend. With all the honesty in her body she said, “I knew it would be good, but I didn’t know it was going to be that GOOD. I was mostly just trying to support two creative friends, but you really have something special here.” 🙂 Yay.
I have a feeling that this upcoming week is going to be a busy one, and hopefully in a good way. Do you ever get overwhelmed on Sunday nights/Monday mornings? It’s kind of like a mini new year, with a whole week’s worth of activities waiting to be accomplished. One thing I did feel like I missed out on this weekend was sleep. Between a few late nights and watching my parent’s dogs while they were gone, I got a little less than what I was hoping for. There is nothing I love more than a good 8+ hours…and weekends were made to snooze.
I’ve decided that I have a favorite meal of the day – brunch! I love it so much. Just put eggs on my plate in any form or fashion and this girl is a happy camper. Literally speaking of eggs… my close friends will enjoy this little bit of information. I have been teased relentlessly for not being able to say eggs properly, instead I always say “aggs” with a long A. I never knew where this came from until Thursday night. While talking to my mom at her house before she headed out-of-town, she asked if I wanted any scrambled aggs for dinner. I looked up at her from the couch and said, “It’s you!! I got it from you!” Mystery solved. We then proceeded to try to say the word eggs correctly, which is very difficult to do. 🙂 It was pretty funny. At least I’m not the only one.
