Christmas was good this year. I was in the spirit pretty early on, but sometime the week before I lost it a little bit. I got it back though in time for Christmas. I was alone here in Protland, so at times I did feel a little lonely. It was hard seeing all the photos on social media of people with their families and good food. All I had for dinner was a piece of chicken and some veggies. At least I had Reese and he’s good company. Next year will different hopefully.
What did I get for my birthday and Christmas?
- Spartacus: The Complete Series on blu-ray
- Microwave (I bought for myself)
- King size wine glass
- Serenity: Leaves on the Wind hardcover
- Portlandia: Season 4 on DVD
- Labyrinth on blu-ray
- The Neverending Story on blu-ray
- Interstellar soundtrack
- GIRL by Pharrell Williams
- Twin Peaks soundtrack
- Requiem for a Dream (the book)
- Touch and Go paperback by Lisa Gardner
- Game of Thrones map poster
- Game of Thrones blanket

Not long ago I saw online somewhere that Portlandia was looking for extras for Season 3. I filled out the online form and included the 2 pictures they wanted: a head shot and a body shot. I didn’t think there was any chance of being picked, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. I really enjoy watching the show. Wednesday afternoon I got a call asking if I could come early the next morning to be in a sketch. Of course I said “Yes”. They told me what to wear and later that night they sent an email telling me where to be and when to be there. I got there super early, but it wasn’t long before other extras started to arrive. Everybody was really nice. I had a great time. I signed an NDA that I didn’t read, so I’m going to play it safe and not go into any details now. Maybe more after the episode airs. Their seasons usually start in January, so I assume you’ll see it around that time. Hopefully, I’ll be on screen and won’t look too bad.
Later that night I went to see Fiona Apple in concert. The opening act was pretty lame. He played nothing but slow, mellow songs and even joked about that. I almost fell asleep because I hadn’t gotten much sleep over the previous few days. Once he finished, we had to wait about 45 minutes before Fiona came on stage. I was getting restless and it was getting late. When she came on she explained that she was late because she had just had her period. Anyway, she put on a really great show. There was was only one song that she didn’t play that I wanted to hear. She’s a weird one, but she’s good.
