Apple Pie

Yesterday Jon and I made the 13.5 hour drive from LA to Washington state to see my family for Thanksgiving. We took our 3.5 month old puppy with us and she did so good on the drive up. I was very surprised. After our long drive, we were so tired, and as we walked in the door of my mom's house the smell of home made apple pie filled the air. My mom baked a pie to welcome us. It was amazing.

This week we will be traveling around see a ton of friends and family. We have a full next 10 days. I am happy to be out of LA where people actually smile at you when you walk by them and let you in when you are driving. It is great.

Our shows

We missed the original airing of Jon on Law and Order SVU which was this last Monday but luckily the episode will rerun this Saturday at 10pm (yeah residuals!). He is doubling one of the detectives when a bomb goes off he flies across a desk. If you aren't able to watch the episode you can see his stunt on the Law and Order SVU website under highlites of that episode by clicking here. Here are a few screan shots from his stunt.

In case you missed seeing me on Scrubs last night I was carring Turk to the scales. Yes I got paid to carry an actor. You need easy days like that to make up for day when you get hurt or get have a tough day ( I am still sore from my stunt last Friday).

Good Video on the Writers Stike

A lot of people have asked me about the writers strike and how if will effect Jon and I. Well most of the shows we have worked on since August are shutting down sometime before Thanksgiving. Meaning there is no work for us in TV, however there is still movies we can work on.

Here is a really good video that explains why they are striking. SAG (our union) could face a similar strike when are contracts are up in June. We would be fighting for the same thing as the writers so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.

On Scrubs Tomorrow

I worked on Scrubs a few weeks ago and I think the episode I am in airs tomorrow night on NBC at 9:30 pm. I have a short part but I am playing myself so if you look close you should see my face. Here is a picture of me and the two other stunt girls working that day.

Another Acura

We bought a second car yesterday because it is just so hard to get around LA with one car for the two of us. We bought a black Acura MDX with all the bells and whistles (navigation, leather, third row seating, sun roof...). It is great! Buying another Acura is a bit scary since we had two stolen last year but we hope that because this is the SUV and not the sports car in their line that we should be ok. I feel so adult with my SUV. We have no kids but have a car that seats 7 because we need room to store all of our toys. As quoted in college we can again say "Nice Acura" (Ben and Sean you are probably the only ones who will get this).

Writers Strike

I am not sure if people outside the movie business are following what is going on with the potential writers strike. From my understanding the writers are going on strike starting Monday. If this lasts for awhile it could really affect our jobs. In the short term there are a back log of scripts for movies and some for TV but eventually TV shows will shut down. Everyone in our business is talking about it. This will immediately effect daily shows like Late Night with David Letterman, The Daily Show...which will start showing reruns starting Monday. Here is a good article in the NY Times that goes into detail about the strike. We will have to see what happens but last time they went on strike in the 80's it lasted 5 months. From what I hear they are not even close to coming to an agreement. It will be interesting to see what happens.
