Ramblings of an Errant Rogue

Trials and tribulations of an actor at large in Hollywood.

I am a living anachronism. I'm a "throw-forward" from another time. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful to have been born here in the 20th century, because it gives me the luxury to play with and explore that pull I feel to history. A few years ago I caught the computer virus and I was never the same. That's been a very slow recovery. Despite my strange attraction to the dark side of life (or more accurately, my romantic idea of the dark side of life), I am an extreme optimist. Like the punching bag clowns of old... you can knock me down, but I come right back up smiling. NOTE: No attempt has been made by the above statement to tempt fate.

Only in Hollywood!

Today was a day like many other days, wherein this actor-at-large had to pay the bills by working a day job. :-( During the morning, Timothy Dalton showed up to do a little Christmas shopping, and yours truly... recognizing the ol' cleft chin, immediately misidentified him, walked up and introduced himself as "another Lance" (mistaking him for another cleft-chinned soap star) - Needless to say, he wasn't terribly amused but was kind enough to say, "I've been called worse." Oops! When I realized my mistake and apologized, he seemed pretty gracious... but I still felt like an idiot. Later that same day, I was helping another customer and couldn't help thinking I knew her. She almost felt like a friend. Finally I asked if she had been in before because she seemed awfully familiar, and she asked me if I had ever seen "Deadwood?" BuhDUH! It was Robin Weigert (Calamity Jane). (Sigh) I'd rather be acting myself... well, I guess I AM acting... acting like a responsible person and keeping the rent paid! :-p Cheers all! (NOTE: This post was just "discovered" in my MacJournal which is supposed to have the capability of auto posting to my blog... HA! Apparently it doesn't have all the bugs worked out yet. this is actually a couple of YEARS old! Pre-townhome, pre-daughters)
