It is finally Friday and I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that in a week it will be May
. The year is flying by. I always think of May as the dividing line in the year. Prior to May it is still that winter/spring combo that kind of melds together because you never know if you are going to have a cold or hot day. When May comes though, it means summer and the joy that comes with leaving work early on Fridays or ditching it if you can and that good feeling lasts until September when you start thinking about football and then the holidays. I guess I am a second half of the year guy. Anyway, I will be blogging all weekend and if you would like to follow me on Twitter I am @entylawyer
Our actress used to be A list. You could make a very good argument that she was A+ list at one time. When people were talking female leads for movies she was always in the conversation. That kind of all changed. It wasn't just that she angered almost every person who worked with her, it was that she stopped sleeping with the directors and producers that got her those parts in the first place. When she reached that almost A+ list status she thought she didn't need to do that any longer. She probably would have been right, but, because of the way she treated people, her career dried up quickly. No one was going to just give her a break. There were plenty of others out there who had talent and were a lot easier to work with.
She found a husband and he put up with her because he was gone so much of the time. When her career nose dived our actress started popping pills. She got hooked after one of her many surgeries and hasn't stopped since. If you catch her on a day when she is taking the right combination you get a dazed looking person who at least won't yell at you. If you catch her though on a day where she is taking the wrong combination she becomes the biggest pain on the planet and you will wish you stayed in bed that day. She has no friends other than those she pays. Her husband is grateful each day that she is no longer in his life. She keeps trying to resuscitate her career but no one wants to give her a role. No one wants to work with her. So, she keeps filming parts in low budget movies and keeps popping those pills.
