Day After [26 Dec 2004|09:44am]
[ mood | apathetic ]

I wonder if it's just me, or does anyone else get those day after Christmas blues?

What a beautiful day it was! Lots of gifts, lots of food, lots of people. As usual, I was the last one up so everyone was sitting in the living room waiting for me. I tell them every year that it's okay if someone wants to wake me up but no one ever does.

The best part of the whole morning was the look on my father's face when he opened his Game Cube. He could not have been more blatant with his hints for the past month, and when he opened it his expression was priceless. We spent hours playing Mario Cart. Not that I think of it I feel a little guilty. I spent so much time playing games with him, I didn't really socialize too much with anyone else in the family until dinner.

Next come New Year's. After that it's back to work. I have no reason to feel down this morning, but I am for some reason. Maybe I'll just have to go cheer myself up by kicking some butt in Mario Cart.

Wow, some things that will be happening next season are definitely things I had not expected to happen. Once again, the writers leave me speechless. I wish I could go into it more, but I'm not really at liberty to and I don't want to spoil anything for people who watch it.

I am so tired right now I don't know how I am even able to keep my eyes open long enough to type this. I'm a little lonesome for some cast mates around here. I think I need to kick some butt and make at least one other person get a journal.

Dream Come True [07 Dec 2004|08:19pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Sometimes really amazing things happen when you least expect them to, or when you're feeling kinda down and like nothing is going right. It turns out I didn't miss the premier of PotO at all, I was completely off on my days. Actually, I was on the wrong week! Emmy called me the other day to remind me of it and I was totally shocked that I really hadn't missed it. Got a new dress, met up with her and Anne, and flew to London! Seriously, I think someone needs to deflate my balloon because I am way too high right now!

Emmy looked beautiful working the red carpet. The movie was...how can I even put it into words? I cried, no big surprise there. The costumes were gorgeous, the music was wonderful, the entire ambiance was just magical. Everyone who loves music and really great acting should see this movie when it comes out. No, everyone should see it, period.

Alright, I'm done rambling on about my exciting night. Thank you so much for sharing this experience with m, Emmy!

Sorry, Emmy! [04 Dec 2004|03:38pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

First things first, Emmy I am so sorry I missed going to the premier last night. I had a small family emergency and I had to stay in LA a little longer than planned. I hope you're not too upset with me. If it makes you feel any better, I'm pretty bummed about it. I was really looking forward to seeing it and hanging out with you. But I hope you had a wonderful time none the less. I'll just have to wait until it's in the theaters to actually see it.

The day after Thanksgiving my father had a small stroke. It was one of the most terrifying things I have ever experienced. He just kind of froze up and we didn't know what was going on. He stayed in the hospital for a few days and then came back home. It scared me enough to call everyone back at work and tell them I needed a few days. I'm leaving to go back to work on Tuesday, though I'm still worried about my father. I'm such a Daddy's girl.

Josh, sorry about dinner. Maybe we can try again?

Strange Dream [23 Nov 2004|08:09am]
[ mood | ditzy ]

Home in LA is so much warmer than the One Tree set in North Carolina. And family gatherings fill you with a special kind of warmth anyway. Wow, that sounds like the beginning to a very special episode of something.

It may have been due to the fact that Mom and I were experimenting with different eggnog recipes and I drank to much, and I watched a taped Lost marathon with my dad and my brother, but for some reason Mr. Josh Holloway was in my dream last night. What a weird dream too. I think he and I were going out to dinner or something, I don't really remember much of the beginning of it. Just that he never talked. He always wore that cocky little smile though that makes you want to jump on top of him smack him. *grins*

What I remember most is that I was trying on so many different outfits while he was waitng for me in the car. It was insane! I am not a clothes person like that, but in my dream I was. *thinks* I remember dropping my bra in the toilet too...weird.

So today begins our marathon Christmas shopping. My father and I do this every year. We take a set amount of money for a set amount of time, run around like mad to different stores, meet up for lunch somewhere, and compare what we bought for who and at what price. I just love the holidays!

Ramblings [15 Nov 2004|12:40pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Well the other day Emmy invited me to go with her to the premier of Phantom when it comes out. I really can't even say how excited I am. I've loved that story since I was a little girl and saw it on Broadway...now to go to the premier! I'm on could nine!

I'm flying home next Monday for Thanksgiving with my family in LA. The hints I dropped to someone that I wouldn't mind having Thanksgiving with him weren't picked up, so I'm just going to go home. Not that it's a bad thing. I do love my family, and I miss my dad. We have such a close relationship that it's more like a friendship. Who needs to go anywhere else when you have family, right?

Filming is going well. I am amazed at all the feedback about Hailey and Nathan's marriage. I've had people stop me in the street begging me to stay with him. I have to laugh and kindly remind them that I'm not really Hailey, nor am I married to James, but I'll pass word along to the writes about their requests. It still blows my mind that I am part of something that id so well right from the get go. I truly am blessed to be where I am.

First Real Entry [12 Nov 2004|10:44am]
[ mood | peaceful ]

Alright, time to get this over with. I've been putting off this first entry because I'm just not quite sure what to say. I've already met and talked to some really amazing people through this community. People I never even imagined coming in contact with. I guess I'm still on a sort of high from that realization. I've told everyone else at Tree Hill about it and am trying to convince them to get into this too. So far, no takers.

Things have been going really well for me lately. I mean, really well. So much so that I'm starting to look around corners for the thing that's going to bring my euphoric state to a crashing end. That is so pessimistic of me, but I can't help it. Have you ever noticed that believing bad stuff will happen is easier to believe than wishing for something good to happen? That's a little sad.

I'm so excited that I finally get to flex my vocal talents at work now. The only downfall is that now everyone, mainly Hilarie, keeps telling me that I should do a record or something. Honestly, I'm happy not doing one at the moment. I love my work, I love the people I get to spend my days with. I'm really happy and I think trying to start a musical career would be a little too much for me right now. I'll never close that door, though. Who knows what the future holds?
