Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

It even hurts when I smile.

Tuesdays at 11 am is the Pilates class from hell at the 24 Hour Fitness in Hollywood. It’s taught by an Asian guy named Leo who I call “The Happy Sadist”.

He’s happy ’cause you’re in pain while you’re trying to keep your back on the ground and your feet precisely 6 inches in the air.

Leo offers encouragement, too: “See, this is easy! Big Smile! It’s easier when you smile! DO IT RIGHT! See? Easy!”.

I keep going to Leo’s class because I’m determined to get my abs back (I lose them when I work 15 hour days), even though I know I’ll be in a lot of pain for the rest of the day.

However, I do have the “Guest Blogger” thing today at Assistant/Atlas‘ blog.


I’m off to soak my sorry ass in the tub.

And now for something completely off topic

Catherine sent me this list of questions that are going around, so here we go.

#1 Total number of books owned – not that many anymore. In an effort to reduce the clutter in my life, I gave a bunch of them to the library. I can visit them anytime I want. I’ve probably got about a hundred left.

#2 The last book I bought – I can’t remember.. I found out I could read them for free from the library.

#3 The last book I read – “How to Build a Time Machine” by Paul Davies

#4 Five books that mean a lot to me –

“Good Omens” by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Damn Terry Gilliam for not being able to get the movie off the ground.

“Watership Down” by Richard Adams. It was the first “grown up” book I ever read (I think I was about 8 or 9).

“Lullaby” by Chuck Palahniuk

“The Wasp Factory” by Iain Banks

“Chuck Amok” by Chuck Jones. An autobiography by the guy who came up with all those really, really cool Warner Brothers cartoons in the 50’s.
