Is there anything you can’t do? Well, I struggle with the top shelf.

In my personal e-mail signature, I refer to myself as a writer, salesmodel and dabbler in all that is awesome. I’ve been doing the dabbling a lot this past week or so, and it has been, in fact, awesome!

I wasn’t going to talk about this for a while, until I got my feet wet in it, but low and behold, I have already experienced and experience so ironic and silly that I HAVE to tell the story. So here I go. I’m coming out of the voice actor closet, after just a week.

After a few weeks of research and convincing, my husband persuaded me to talk to a voice over teacher about lessons. Her name is Deborah, and I freaking love her already. She seemed impressed at my understanding of the business (don’t quit your day job) and my willingness/ability to learn quickly. I had my first lesson last Saturday, and it was life changing. I had so much fun, and I haven’t felt that much like myself in a long time.

What was funny though was what happened that day. Another student named Chris was wrapping-up a few auditions in the booth when I came in. There was one more Deborah wanted him to try, but it was a dialogue between a man and a woman. Chris looked at me and asked “how old are you?” I told him “26,” and he exclaimed, “She could do this with me, right?”  Deb asked me if I was game to try, and I was like “Sure. What’s the part?”

“It looks like you need to be a sarcastic, angsty, uninterested receptionist or admin.”

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

I said, “Ummm…I think I can handle that.” (LOL)

I did the bit with Chris, and we got the gig! If I couldn’t nail that role, I don’t know who could. Deborah was thrilled that I could make such a great character and that I was willing to just jump-in and learn as I go. I can’t wait to do more work! this may be my calling (and writing, too! Of course!)

This week also marks the end of my internship with Pretty in my Pocket. I was shocked when I got my two-weeks-notice, but I guess it was and internship that had to end eventually. I did over 400 beauty reviews for them on various makeup and beauty products, and I really pushed for them to keep me on file and in their minds for future opportunities. The launch for the site is this fall, so we’ll see what happens.

It's a pain in the ass, but it's soooooooo cool!

In case I haven’t been doing enough this past week or so, I’ve also been stenciling leopard print designs in my hallway, testing my water color skills while making Chi’s Sweet Home-style portraits of my cats for this cool picture

Kitties!

Awww. My cake matches my brother!

screen Joie gave me, and I made my brother this kick-ass, psychedelic, hippy-inspired, tie dye cheesecake for his birthday.

I have also written a few fridge songs in advance because I just had the inspiration inside me last week. I even took it upon myself to illustrate my own water color pic for this one, so Joie can finish some more projects before I ask her to do an illo for me. One of my coworkers called me Prentianna after this one. ♥ Enjoy:

Mozzarella
To Umbrella by Rhianna

Artichoke hearts
on a pizza sliced in eight parts,
Italian cuisine
should be a lunchtime star,
but you left it in the dark,
now it’s time to disembark ,
And that’s when you see me there
by the fridge, pizza ensnared,
Because

When Friday comes, food’s gone forever
I show no mercy whatsoever,
not even for your pizza, Friend,
Took an oath I’ma stick it out till the end,
that slice looks more yummy than ever
with a crunchy thin crust and it’s smothered
with pepperoni and mozzarella
with pepperoni and mozzarella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Sausage and mozzarella
(Ella ella an-cho-vies)
Pineapple and mozzarella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Mushrooms and mozzarella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

Mellow Mushroom, Papa John’s
Pizza Hut, with parmesan
Leftover Fellini’s,
Cold pizza’s something we all love
So go make red pepper flakes pour
and eat it now or nevermore,
Because

When Friday comes, food’s gone forever
I show no mercy whatsoever,
not even for your pizza, Friend,
Took an oath I’ma stick it out till the end
that slice looks more yummy than ever
with a crunchy thin crust and it’s smothered
with pepperoni and mozzarella
with pepperoni and mozzarella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Peppers and mozzarella
(Ella ella an-cho-vies)
Olives and mozzarella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Canadian Bacon and mozzarella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)
