Monday was the opening day for production on my new movie! I slept for about 4 hours I was so excited!

There were bagels, burritos, cereals, oatmeal, and lots of fruit for breakfast. I nibbled on half a pumpernickel + veggie cream cheese with a clementine

A couple hours later, a piece of scone that the “Yes We’re Open” writer HP Mendoza claimed tasted like Fruit Loops

He was right – there was something very florescent tasting about those blueberries….

For lunch I nibbled on crudite with hummus, edamame, and a turkey/swiss cheese wrap with mayo…

…followed by some chips n salsa n berries

We were so ahead of schedule that we wound up shooting some of the sex scenes (originally planned for today)!!!

Carlen gave me that “special glow”

Ha ha… that’s funny. I guess those scenes are a part of acting.

How fun to see the “bed’s eye view” of shooting a sex scene!

And I applaud all of your healthy choices from the crafts table.

You are so beautiful! I love this because I always think about the whole film crew standing there during those “intimate sex scenes”!

Is it bad that I want to be an actress for the trays of food?!? :)
Glad to hear the movie is going well!

Fun to see some behind-the-scene shots!

15 Amanda April 26, 2011 at 11:45 am

You look so pretty! (As usual!) Are those scenes kind of awkward to film?

Hi Lynn,

I’m not sure what happened but I submitted a comment and it didn’t get posted. I think your blogs are interesting but I was wondering about your opinion on blepharoplasty?
