Happy 2005!

So far this year, I've done nothing but be irresponsible, which is always fun. We just got back from a vacation/not-so-much-of-a-vacation in Cancun. If anyone's ever been there, you know what I'm talking about. It's not exactly the type of place where you relax and read a book, you know? After morning water aerobics, there's tequila vollyball, "crazy hour" (where people make serious asses of themselves in the pool), "happy hour", and then shuttles that leave from your hotel to various nightclubs around town. I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. We usually go to Maui every year, around February, and it's worlds different from Cancun. In Maui I go through about three novels, sleep on the beach all day, have incredible food for dinner (the best sushi ever), and then watch the stars before going to bed nice and early. I don't know what I was expecting from Cancun, but it's NOTHING like Maui. We still had fun, though.

As for what's next, the insanity that is pilot season is starting soon, which means work, work work and about a million meetings and auditions. I feel like I'm in the eye of the storm right now or something. It's about to get hectic, I can feel it! OH! and Widow on the Hill is airing January 24th at 9pm, both eastern and pacific. I still haven't received my copy from the network yet, so I can't tell you much about it. It IS based on a true story, though... The reason why they say "inspired by real events" is because if they implied any more than that, the real people... meaning the real woman that Natasha Henstridge plays... would get pretty angry. Lawsuits kind of angry... so that's why they say that. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy it. I had a ball filming it.

Conventions seem to be springing up all over the place, so I'll let you know when that stuff is finalized. And please keep that momentum up for "Serenity". I promise the wait will be worth it, okay?

I love reading your posts and I love hearing your thoughts.

Take care and be safe...
