But first ... No one I know has been cast in Boom. Despite strong showings by those who auditioned, and one very very close call, I remain alone in Amsterdam. Not truly alone -- I have many new friends here who I've known for almost a year -- but there's a lack of shared history and perspective. For a whole year, I've wanted nothing but a familiar face, and it looks like it'll be at least 6 more months before I see one of my former coworkers.
That's not entirely accurate. I'm taking a vacation in December to head back to LA again and do a couple of shows with the most talented people I've known outside of Jordan Peele. I miss my friends so much.
So, thank god for Sophie. The last week has been wonderful, despite the intense melancholy implied by my prior paragraphs. We've had dinners and dates and delights indescribeable. I'm a happy girl, with a happy girlfriend. She'll be back in 2 weeks, and I can't wait for it. Ya hoo. And she'll come with when I visit LA and Chicago. Awesome.
That's all for now. It's just shows shows shows shows.
