the new haircut
so it doesn’t look like i’m going to be spending much time on the track this week. when i’ve not been sniffling and sneezing at the studio, i’ve been home on my back – and no, not in a fun way!
had a late call (for a change) today, so managed to make it to the doctor. and the little piece of plastic otherwise known as a credit card did marvelous acrobatics in and out of my wallet. doctor, bloodwork, various prescriptions, etc., etc. so though i am anti antibiotics, i am, once again, on them.
at least the doctor is young, funky and cute – the total opposite of the doctor-character i play. her name is dr. d. green and if you live in the linden, northcliff area of johannesburg and need a good gp, dr. d’s your gal (that was an unpaid for plug, b.t.w.). she recommended that i keep a ventilator/inhaler at hand – just in case the exercise induced asthma gets any worse. that’s when i finally recuperate and make it back to my training program! though it looks like i’m going to be stuck on 5k’s for the immediate future!
totally different track, pun intended; anybody catch “californication”? i’m totally hookered, uhm, i mean, hooked. 😉 i’m really liking david duchovny’s anti-hero character (as long as i don’t have to live with him!). the writing’s pretty cool and so are the characters. nothing predictable here – except the endless nudity and sex scenes, which i’m not above enjoying, but might find more appealing if i were a guy.
have also been getting into “life”. and loving pvr. i love that i get to ffwd through the ads and promos – even though i think south african commercials are some of the best in the world. funny. pithy. apt. but still, once you’ve seen it x dozen times, you’ve seen it x dozen times.
had 2 funny “coincidences” today. when i was at the doctor getting blood drawn (no mean feat! with my miniscule veins i’d suck at being a junkie!), the cutest little blonde boy came running into the room, and locked eyes with me, only to be whisked off moments later by a woman i presumed to be his gran. it took me a moment before i realized that it was the son of one of the actresses i work with. odd, cause she brought him to work recently and i missed him that day. it was like i’d been given another opportunity to see him. in fact, i’d almost forgotten that i got to spin some fire at his baby shower.

after that, i decided to treat myself to breakfast at my favorite breakfast spot, paputsi’s on 4th street in linden. their menu features the hand-drawn head of a cat on the front, and it’s butt, with butt-hole, on the back! over breakfast i paged through one of the free mags they usually have out front and there, to my surprise, was an interview with a fracquaintance (a word i just made up – an acquaintance who’s almost a friend) of mine, dave chislett, journalist, pr guy and one of the few other bloggers i know. check him out at http://www.thechiz.co.za
he warned me that blogging was addictive. though hey, at least one doesn’t need to stick a needle in one’s veins!
