Back on 11/7, I posted that I was supposed to be filming American Horror Story on the 10th. Well, here's the deal...
Tney have continuously delayed the shoot. Today I get an email that they're filming on the 2nd.
Unfortunately, I'm booked into Geostorm on the second. And the third. And the 15th of January. I tell them that. She's arranged that I can be pulled off Geostorm.
Unfortunately, as much as I want to be in AHS , the concept of giving up 3 days work for a chance to film something that has already cancelled on me 4+ times isn't feasable.
So. There we are. Dammit.
Really... I don't know how the hell they get the Damn show on the air with this kind of scheduling.
Regardless. .. here's hoping everybody is having a great day, and getting ready for thanksgiving. Go Turkey's!

It would appear that I will not be filming American Horror Story on Monday. Just got an email from the casting director and there have been delays on the set.
So it will happen sometime this week, just NOT Monday and probably not Tuesday.
Dang Dang Dang.
You know..this makes it difficult to plan my life. Just saying.
These are growing outside Saint Vincent's, specifically beside the grotto...

And sometimes that's a good thing. Just got cast for several days on a new movie. Will have to go in for costume fittings Monday... shooting Wednesday and Thursday. So I won't be working day labor ( with the immediate pay) next week... I'll have to wait two weeks for the check... that's 210 + 15 costume bump and 15 haircut bump, -taxes. I got it covered tho. This day job I have now has already given me 40 hours, and Saturday will pay me 9 hours overtime. And the check from astronaut wives club just came in.
All I have to cover is my rent and some food... so I'm good. And since St Vincent's finally fixed their community kitchen, I can cook my own stuff for cheap, and of course, on the set you are fed. Very Very well fed.
Of course after next week it's back to the temp grind. There will be more filming days coming up on this project over the next 2 month's. I'm not supposed to give out many details, and they keep us from doing that by not giving us many.
Its called Geostorm, as far as I can tell it's a sci-fi disaster kind of thing, and I'll be NASA mission control. .. other than that, can't tell you much...cause I don't know anything else.

All right folks... disaster averted... not homeless. Too close for my taste... but there we are... lots of things are happening in my life tho...,
I am of course watching American Horror Story this year. Turns out its being filmed down the street, about 3 blocks away, and one of the stars, Mat Fraser, whip plays seal boy is living in the neighbourhood. I've seen him twice now, and yesterday he was set the coffee house where I get my cafe au lait when I have the funds for a $4 cup of coffee (not lately) but I didn't see him because I was at work.
You read right... work... day Labour people FINALLY came through... at the last minute on my last day.
Grunt work for grunt pay, but it's a three week job.
They're turning a 1920's bank building into condos, and I do things like scrape the walls for the plaster crew, move materials up 18 flights, sweep floors... you know... grunt work. And I thankfully get underpaid every day.
So. There we are.

Well... yesterdays post was not about me begging for money. It was just me venting frustration.
Yeah, things are a little bad at the moment, And yeah I may end up spending a few days in a shelter... but worse things have happened.
It's very heartwarming to know that there are people out there who want me to.set up a donation button so they can send me money. Well, I'm confined to an android at the moment And copying code into html files is kind of beyond this phones capabilities...
All I can say is that if you really want to send me something, for which I will be eternally grateful, you can send it via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
