Hey look it’s me on the left! Upwork recently featured me as a freelancer and hired me for their most recent conference in Vegas, where I wrote bios for anyone who stopped by and said hi 🙂
Anyways, it’s October and I haven’t blogged since I got back from Berlin. It’s also sPoOkY sEaSoN which means I have to go to Halloween parties thrown by actors who somehow have ENDLESS costume/wig/special effects makeup to the point where 1 actor friend could outfit all the dayplayers on an episode of THE WALKING DEAD and STILL have leftover digs for the cast of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD. (Sidenote: are people still watching these shows?)
And then there’s me, with a normal amount of closet space for LA, and all I have is like a potato and a broken crown to whip up into some sort of witty costume. What do I do with those? I… I just don’t know. (There’s a joke here, probably an offensive one related to the Irish potato famine, but I’m not a comedy writer. So.)
What are you being for Halloween? Let me know in the comments below or get @ me on Twitter. Would love to know, especially if your costume is more clever than mine. (Currently — it DEFINITELY is. Right now I have some really lame costume ideas. Maybe this will change when the onslaught of costumed carnivals start. We’ll see.)
