Yes, We’re Open!


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”



Parry and I look cozy, but we had a lot of company!
