If you’d like an update on my tummy, read my last blog post. I actually hesitated very much over publicly posting that one as I figured it wasn’t really very encouraging and probably TMI. But then I decided to go ahead as it was how I felt.
I’m still not even close to 100% and starting to get the blues over it. It does wear you down to have health issues with your body. In a weird way it gives me comfort to still be my fluffy self as unexplained weight loss is a bad symptom.
Went to my voice acting coaching session with David yesterday and was impressed with myself. I truly felt terrible physically and kind of went to take my mind off of it. I didn’t think we would record anything usable. Surprise! I made some really great progress and left encouraged. Hooray! (Maybe it made me less self conscious of my acting since I was so focused on how my body was feeling).
I got up super early to go hiking.
Mark and I were going bike riding, but the temps were too high for the time we’d wanted to ride, and since I was up so early I modified and went hiking. Honestly, I wasn’t sure how far I’d get. You can lose hiking tone if you don’t use it. But slow and sure, I got all the way up to the upper Zen place and back. I enjoyed being out in the fresh air, even though it got very hot, even by 8:00 am on the way down.
Then I wrote a silly commercial for a wonder eraser (homework from David). By writing an ad about something I understand in the same vein as the actual scientific spot we’re working on, it helps me to get a better handle on my delivery. The scientific spot is FILLED with words that are hard to say and hard to understand, so I needed to practice how someone who WOULD understand it would deliver a spot like that.
It was fun to write such a silly thing. Here it is!
A New Approach to Multi-use Erasers*
Frampton Brother’s sea-gummy eraser technology is based on the duel action ability of two natural enzymes inherent in Scandinavian sea lettuce: one which keys perfectly with the molecules of pencil graphite, the other with the molecules of carbon black commonly found in ink pens. When lightly rubbed over any form of pencil or pen mark, these sea-gummy duel molecules effectively lift the pencil or pen mark cleanly away without affecting the paper. Each molecule bonds with over 50 times its own weight in graphite and/or carbon black making every eraser’s capacity for removal more than 10,000 marks. Duel action technology is utilized in every eraser in Frampton Brother’s sea-gummy line for a broad range of stand-alone and writing utensil options.
*Any relation to ANY product living or dead is a wildly unlikely coincidence.
Now I’m ping ponging between reruns of Survivor and America’s Next Top Model.
In a bit I’ll go record my science piece to practice and do my vocal exercises.
Hope you’re having fun today BCs!
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
