So ZX Is On Her Way To Coachella, But This Was Her Thursday

I think I was depressed. I have been operating on about four hours of sleep a night instead of the requisite 10-14 hrs. I think I just wanted it all to go away and when I spoke to my manager today, I was wearing jeans I haven't fit into for nine months and I just breezed them right on this morning without knowing they were the Joe's jeans I WISHED I fit into and could not throw away. My manager called it boyfriend fat. Yay. So apparently the 41 lbs. I gained just went straight to my knockers.

Good news on the smoking front: for anyone who is on the fence about quitting, I have seen photographic evidence that I now look less like Harry Dean Stanton, although I still like to remove my pores via airbrush.

I think in LA, people are not worried about emphysema, low birth weight, and heart disease. The non-smoking campaigns should be focused solely on the aging/collapsing implications. Get sets of twins, one who smokes and one who doesn't and follow them over the years. Then you could have some catchy jingle like the Doublemint Girls about being foxy and getting more booty because you're not withered and stinky. I know I'd go for it, and those jingles, Man, they just get into your head.

So I guess I was too complicated for Dad's Bags because I called him to ask him when he was picking me up and he said he had planned on calling me in an hour to cancel because he was hawking meat in Dana Point and some deal was falling through and he was stuck in traffic. I actually said, "I'm so sorry you're having a bad day," instead of, "You bloody well should have told me you had to cancel the instant you knew so I could make other plans!" But I actually was sorry he was having a bad day because cute people shouldn't suffer. Also, I already had two other sets of conflicting plans- I don't know if it was just in case or if I cosmically jinxed the whole thing, (The Secret, The Secret,) but I do have a fun night ahead of me.

I met up with my dad this morning for breakfast and a swim, but I kickboarded because I'm lazy and had just washed my hair and also was giving my legs one last chance for Coachella shorts. My Dad brought a magazine cover with me on it and Holy Bejesus! I look like a gnarled munchkin with eyes the size of raisinettes. I only wish in the article I'd been squeezed into the pink Osh Kosh B'Gosh to make the picture complete. Also two people have called me to say that I bashed or ignored them in the article, which according to me merely makes me out to be spoiled, yet poor, boring white trash. This was not the interview by my new best friend, but some heinous woman who was condescending to my father for being spiritual.

The National Lampoon team adores me, supposedly, so I have that going for me, although the director is convinced I'm not a teenager, and whadda ya know? I'm not.

Cleaned my car which was a real mess. Couldn't decide whether the suspicious looking brown splotches on the carpet were actually vomit, and if so, how the hell did they get there?

Just finished "Veronika Decides to Die." If you ever feel like your life is routine, get through the first 133 pages and then thank me.

She makes a comment about being on a magazine cover... DS was on the cover of Stuff in February - http://cgi.ebay.com/Stuff-Magazine-February-2007-Dominique-Swain-on-Cover_W0QQitemZ270084435254QQcmdZViewItem

I think she looks great... but us girls NEVER like the way we look in pictures!

ZX, I LOVE Paulo Coelho's the Alchemist. After reading it, you are left thinking, "This is why we exist!"

But then I read Veronika and I was left thinking, "What's the f'ing point?"

You went up two notches in my book by simply mentioning that book, let alone that author.

wow. if it is DS, all I can say is wow. I watched alpha dog the other night and she looked hawt. I liked her since I saw her in Lolita (and you're like 'I am not supposed to find her attractive, am I? That's the whole point?!?'

Breaker said...

DS was on the cover of Stuff, but that was in Feb, why would she just be seeing and hearing about it now? AND that article in stuff was written by a man, she states a heinous women wrote this article in which she is on the cover of the mag.

Im starting to think its not DS, even though everyone and their mother thinks it is.

Anonymous said...

I dont think it is DS because on her website, it says she lives with her sister. ZX lives alone.

drcocks said...

I really hope it is Dominique. She is extremely talented and from a talented family who seems to be pretty grounded by hollywood standards.

I just ordered that book! Getting through the gloomy MW winters have been tough on my thoughts, I heard the book might help. Glad to know you liked it. Keep writing! Thanks!

If that picture in the purple dress is ZX, then "knockers" is not where the weight went. :)

I believe it is Lori Petty. Her father is/was a minister and she is in preproduction for a National Lampoon movie.

twins and set in the same sentence is very redundant. go back to school little entertainer...

so it seems people now know who ZX is... and comments that would confirm that are not appearing on the comments section .. non?

Anonymous said...

I don't think that anyone truly "knows" who ZX is. I think they think they know.

For Pinky,

Did you notice how the traffic today was non-existent!! Is it because of Coachella? Funny how many offices are empty today @ work.

xp from another comment section:
Ok, so I did a little digging on the web and came across some photos taken by Tao Raspoli (sp?) the husband of Olivia Wilde (who coincidentally may have been the subject of a recent BI).

Anywhoo, look at DS's arms in this pic and compare them to the pic of her holding a gun.

Also, someone said it can't be DS since her website says she lives with her sister, but that website hasn't been updated since 2000.

sheesh, I am tired now...

GGA - now that you mention it, I did get to work pretty fast today! And I don't think it's a Jewish holiday - bcause the streets aren't THAT clear.

I would love for it to be Parker Posey!!!!!!!!!!!

So sad that after doing a bit of research at the thought ZX could be PP, I learned that she is going to be in a Fox tv show (if it's picked up) and in February, she signed on to be in a movie w/Jessica Alba. For the one minute I thought it was PP, I was so happy. :(

I don't know if anyone noticed whether the pool in the celbrity profile in this weekend's newspaper stuffer match the pool pix......

and I'm wondering if that could be our mystery ZX???

Dorothy said...

I was hoping ZX would mention something about 'US' Hollywood 2007 hosted by US Weekly.

I saw a pic of DS sporty what looks to be a pair of Christian Louboutins.

It's DS....go to wikopedia and look her up...you'll find that she was born in her father's car.

A Green Datsun 260Zx.

ZX=DS

That was FUN!!!!

"bloody well"...yet more Brtish/Aussie terminology. That's why I'm still thinking this is NOT an American actress. That would eliminate Dominique, Parker, etc.

I love you ZX and that book...rocks!!!!! its definetly one of my faves ever. Keep those blogs coming and don't let the bastards grind you down.

I speak like that and I was born here. I like a lot of british comedies (monty python etc.), which could explain it. Also depends on what she reads...and she's well educated (as am I, not to sound pompous--just drawing a parallel). I've noticed a few people with "edumakashon" speak like that. Don't know where the habit came from, other than perhaps the pop-culture influences.

my 2 cents--dominique swain

I think its Rachel Bilson

Dominique Swain was in the movie "New Best Friend" in 2002.

hello kitty said...

I can't find the link.

I think it's Parade Magazine this weekend.

Just because someone uses Britishisms doesn't mean they're British. I use some that are far more obscure to Americans than the ones that ZX uses, and last time I checked, I'm American born and raised. I've just hung around people from countries that use British slang enough that I've picked stuff up.

ZX,
1. I can confess that I quit smoking for all the wrong reasons....I spend too much money on facials and botox to let a $4 pack of smokes ruin it all.
2. When I don't get enough sleep I get depressed too.

Mrs DePoint said...

Why would her father bring a magazine with ZX on the cover unless it was a new one he'd only just seen on the newsstand? Quick rundown of new magazine covers:

Jane: Dunst and Bryce Dallas Howard. Dunst was in Europe this week for Spiderman and Howard is married with a baby, so it isn't either of them.
Glamour: Kate Beckinsdale. Her father died when she was a kid, plus she HAS a kid, so it's not her.
Vogue: A bunch of models, not actresses.
Allure: Lohan. We all know how she feels about HER father.
Self: Ali Larter. Maybe. Doesn't seem like a big enough star to be on the receiving end of the amount of ass-kissing she and Ent describe.
Bazaar: Gwen Stefani. Nope.
Lucky: Avril Lavigne. No way.
FHM: No pic, just a rundown of "sexiest women"

Dominique Swain doesn't seem to be on any covers. Plus, is she well known enough for the ass-kissing? That, I feel, is key.

Can anybody think of any other magazines?

Frenchie said...

Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do for yourself. However, living in L.A., don't you need, like, a Hazmat suit just to get through the smog??? LOL!

I'm not even going to try to figure out who you are, I'm having enough fun just reading your posts. It's positively lovely to know that there are still nice girls like you in H. town. Sounds like you and Ent. L. had a great time. I never went to a bonnafide shooting range. (Ours was always the great outdoors, and well within the range and safety of a massive sand pit on our own property)

Shame on that heinous woman. What a bitch to put down folks for their spirituality... Waste of oxygen. ;)

Mama P, VP said...

I've been avidly reading all of these posts and comments since ZX appeared and was sold on the DS theory until the comment about the pool in this weekend's Parade magazine looking very much like that in the recent photo shoot. So I checked Parade.com and the photographer for that shoot was Robert Ascroft. Found his photo. http://www.robertascroft.com/index.php?page=bio
Now granted he's younger and styled here but the glasses, the overall look, are one and the same. I believe ZX has to be Mandy Moore.

Mama P, VP said...

After getting so excited and thinking I'd solved it I took another look at the pool/photo shoot and am no longer so sure. That really does look like the same photographer to me though.

Anonymous said...

Mandy is also on the May cover of Elle. That must have come out this month.

She also wears a size 10 shoe. Isn't that what ZX wears?

Anonymous said...

ZX's legs are long and lean.

hedda said...

mama p, vp: I think your Robert Ascroft guess is a step in the right direction. I also think you should check out these blogs: Letters from London, xxthing & coolnina97. There is a picture of a woman on one of these that is very similiar to the blond in that ZX post that you were speaking of. I'm leaning towards her as the writer here.

Libby said...

Can anyone refresh my memory--why was Piper Perabo discounted as ZX? Just thinking we know her from 'Coyote Ugly' and the DVD the slumber party girls were clutching could have been 'Cheaper By the Dozen' (1 or 2)...she seems fairly educated and has been around for awhile... don't know if she's a 'covergirl' but I do find her more recognizable than DS (no offense, DS)...on the other hand I do love the DatsunZX clue for DS...so...I guess I dunno.

Mandy Moore!!! mentioning REAL several times in posts. could refer to album SO REAL? also Doesn't Really fit through the door, reference to Depression? said may reveal identity while Skydiving--Mandy Moore mentions skydiving in an article. Did movie with LG and Piper--explains how LG could get email. In the Princess Diaries-girls could have been holding that DVD.
