i work with that sinister and annoying reporter on TV!

So, first i'd like to say that i'm sorry for not writing in this blog like, in forever. But as dan has noted, i've been, like, working and stuff. what real adults call "busy." (i almost feel like a real adult, and i think i would more, except i work at a store where we wear the comfort equivalent of pajamas to work, so it's hard to get all hard-nose-y.) We have a visitor down from Canada who is visiting us this week, you know, just for a little "visit", and that means everyone is doing a little "extra" to show how good a store we are. For my part that means a little bit of extra working, extra running around, and extra being awake. all this extra anxious energy makes me a little bit shakey, but tomorrow i have a day off, so i feel better. .. until i think of the mountainous pile of laundry flowing from the closet... then i get anxious again.

But i was cheered today, because all day i was waiting to come home and watch a taped version of the TV show "True Calling," starring my friend and co-worker Michelle Harrison! The show airs Thursday nights at 8pm, but we couldn't watch it last night because of the pricing and tagging party. So we watched the show tonight, and boy was it a time!

Here's the synopsis. In short, the show is about this girl who works in a morgue who sees dead people come to life and say "help me," then immediatly afterwards she wakes up in her bed the same morning and has the day to figure out how to stop the murder. Actually, that's not in short, that's the whole freakin show. stretched over an hour. AN HOUR. TV sucks.

Anyway, Michelle plays a reporter who's tryin to crack the story on this girl, and who also happens to be the best actor in the whole outfit over there, but it doesn't help much given the writing they're working with. Michelle says she's on two more episodes this season, and if the show gets picked up for a second season, she may do more. As much as i want her to have more work, i hate to unleash this monster of a gag-fest show on the american market for anouther year. But next week Jason Priestly joins the cast, so who knows, it may pick up!

The bottom line was, it's really fun and weird to see someone you know on TV pretending to be someone else. Because it's like: "Hey, it's Michelle! What is she doing all in the morgue, bein mean, and acting like a reporter? she's so nice and not in a morgue most of the time, and she folds pants for a living!"

i hope i have more friends who i can see on TV, and maybe one day in GOOD shows.
