monday: met with dave to discuss what i will be doing while he is away in London. he gave me some of his portfolio books to send out and showed me how to contact ad agencies. he also showed me photos of the studio/house he is renting and some of the models he will be working with. (the kids are really cute and you know that they're going to be all proper and well-behaved and have cute little english accents, hehe). and then he paid me in advance, which is always nice. :) that means my share of the rent will be on time and i will be able to afford a ticket home. :)
tuesday: bummed around. scanned/edited photos. cleaned up the bedroom by rearranging all of my picture frames; putting away a big heap of clothes; and i even dusted. rick and i watched Paris When it Sizzles (audrey hepburn and william holden).
"According to several Hepburn biographies, the filming of Paris - When it Sizzles was chaotic, as Holden, who had had an affair with Hepburn during the making of Sabrina a decade earlier, attempted to rekindle romance with the now-married actress." ~wikipedia
it was one of those movies about making a movie. it was weird to see audrey hepburn with her hair down for a few scenes because she usually wore her hair up.
wednesday: (today) called ad agencies for dave. interviewed for a study that i really hope i am chosen for. (i don't want to jinx myself so i won't divulge the details yet). i talked to missy monchichi on the phone for 1 1/2 hours!! we had a lot of catching up to do!! although we've never met in person yet, she continues to be a great friend. we started talking through myspace in march 2006 after missy discovered our mutual admiration for a certain numerical band. (haha, 311 - making friends since 1989!!) so we just clicked and became pen pals/e-mail pals and have been ever since.
when rick got home, we finished watching Paris When it Sizzles, at which point we both were extremely sleepy so we took a 30 minute nap which turned into a 45 minute nap. then rick and i went to the library, checked out some more movies, stopped at costco and wound up eating dinner at 9:15 pm. our resolution for the week is to start eating dinner at a decent hour. lately we've been eating around 8-8:30 pm.
