This is what's been on my mind, pretty constantly, for the last several weeks. It's keeping me awake at night, so pay close attention.

Actor David Ackert said this on his website. A good friend of mine, who is also one of my mentors, sent this to me a couple of years ago, probably when she was the age I am now, and feeling the way I've been feeling.

Actors are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, actors face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get "real" jobs, and their own fear that they'll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every role, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg.

But they stay true to their dream, in spite of the sacrifices. Why?

Because actors are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul. Actors are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another's heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.

Weekly Poll - Should we keep this up?

I was kinda surprised, guys. 57% said you totally love the weekly poll. 21% are over it and 21% didn't even know it existed.

If you didn't know it existed, why did you vote? Just askin'.

So I guess majority rules and I'll keep it up for a little while longer. Although, this week I'm getting a little deeper than usual. Because I've really been reexamining my life and I'm curious how other people view their life. And there is a fly buzzing by my head and it's making me loopy.

Next week I'll ask you what you think about farts.

A Warm Family Welcome.

Me: Dude. Your weiner missed me.

Him: Yeah, he did.

Me: Your weiner is all over me! Geez!

Him: Well, my weiner likes pretty girls.

Me: Alright, baby. I'm tired. Can you get your weiner off me?

Him: I don't have a lot of control over my weiner.

Me: But he's slobbering all over my face!

Him: Well, sometimes my weiner just has a mind of his own.

Weekly Poll - Boogers

When asked what you would do upon meeting a really cool potential boyfriend/girlfriend who happened to have a giant booger hanging out of their nose, 6% of you said you'd tell them, but try to make a joke out of it; 4% would tell them, but in a really nice way; and 1% would be so grossed out that they'd walk away and never look back. And I know who that 1% is. Sicko. HA HA JUST KIDDING. Nah, actually, that is totally what I would do, too. Only I'd ALSO be inwardly laughing at them.
