Dear AT&T, thank you for getting me into Shape.

Dear Shape AT&T, You have forged some kind of magical energy and heart-pounding go-getting drive through my veins. The real question is…how come I have never heard of you? Shape is the AT&T Tech and Entertainment Expo. This year, I had the fortune of joining the Meetup group “Let’s Make Movies LA” right in time for them to give out free tickets to this amazing event held at the Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Big shout out to JB for hooking us up. I was like a little kid in the candy store. Wide-eyed with a goofy smile, I got to check out all the cool sets and back lots of the most iconic movies and TV shows like the Big Bang Theory and Pretty Little Liars. And even scored “Gunther’s” role on the set of the iconic comedy show “Friends”. Check out my amazing coffee pouring skills:   It was a scorching day so listening to speeches in an air-conditioned theater was a no-brainer. But let me tell you, even if I …

Behind the Stage: Putting on a Wig

Transforming into a skid row urchin in the 60s era for Little Shop of Horrors was so much fun.   Here is a video on how I put on my wig for the show.   And a little treat at the end where I pay homage to my favorite superhero, Wonder Woman!   My little corner oasis in the girls dressing room.   These are essentials!!! 1.  My boy shorts because when wearing a skirt on stage and running dance numbers, giving the audience a peep show is absolutely NOT part of the plan. 2. For singing throats:  LOTS OF WATER, preferably with raw honey.   And when your throat gets tired and sore after a couple of shows?  Who would of thunk!?  Ginger candy…works wonders. 3.  Face towel because I tend to sweat like Whitney Houston on a big night. I’ve actually have become somewhat of the ultimate professional in the fake cut-crease eye makeup area.   Let me know if you would like to see how I created my own fake cut-crease eyelid. I learned so much…and some the hard …

Why Not Now with Min-D!

There are many “scary” numbers like 666 or 4.  My scary number is 39.  Yes, 39 gives me a lot of anxiety.  39 is the end of your 30s!  For me, it’s the last year to squeeze every ounce of immaturity out before the start of the dreaded 40s.  When you turned 30, did you feel old?  I sure didn’t.  All the way up to 38, I was like, “I can still HANG with the 20-year-olds”.  But now, I can’t help but notice white hair, dimples and brown spots spreading through nukes and cracks of my body like chicken pox.  And where did all my pumped up, hyper sensitive adrenaline run off to? Nowadays, it’s a win just to go hiking once a month. Ahhhhh…the dirty signs of growing old.  I turned 39 a couple of months ago…I’m totally scared. I’ve always lived my life willing to put myself out there and experience new things. So shouldn’t I know my true passion by now? I am a 39 year old wife, with no kids, a …
