how to melt my heart like butter in the microwave

January 22nd, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

In latest Cake news, which is  a thing in my life right now, the play is currently in rehearsal down at the La Jolla Playhouse down in San Diego, and LAST WEEK THEY HOSTED A CAKE BAKE OFF FOR THE EMPLOYEES OF THE THE THEATER.

Someone (also aptly named Bekah) even attempted a pink lemonade cake!

Really the only downside here is that I wasn’t able to be there / judge / twitch with gratitude and sugar high.

Noah’s Ark Cakes FOREVER

January 20th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

The Warehouse theater in Greenville, SC sent me their Noah’s Ark Cake prop as a housewarming gift and I COULD NOT BE MORE THRILLED ABOUT IT.

You got your orangoutangs, you got your zebra’s –

YOU GOT YOUR GIRAFFES!

Just to toss this wish out into the universe, if every theater ever that does The Cake could send me their Noah’s Ark Cake once to production ends, so that I might someday fill an entire room with them, THAT WOULD BE MOST PLEASING, THNKS!

how to know you’re (happily) married

January 19th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

You find yourself at ******** show with coworkers ( an awesome / fairly innocent late night show with sexy dude dancers; innocent, because  male desire is dirty, and female desire is, you know, cute.)  You then find out that that you are seated in a prime lap dance seat. YOU ABRUPTLY STAND AND MOVE SEATS, AS THERE IS ONLY ONE LAP THAT YOU LIKE.

how to become famous

January 18th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Be more like this woman, who marched up to me last night when we were filming at ***** tourist attraction in ********, wearing full body denim, with a face painted like a 19th century doll:

WOMAN: I’M LATE. I WANNA BE AN EXTRA. I’M BEAUTIFUL.

Me: Okay — well — we already have our background people and we’ve already been filming for a while, so–

WOMAN: I’M BEAUTIFUL.

Me: Okay, well — maybe stand at the edge of the crowd and you might be in the shot.

WOMAN: WHAT MOVIE IS THIS?

Me: It’s a TV show.

WOMAN: (joining edge of crowd) I DON’T WATCH TV.

why to look at Twitter

January 17th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Why create television in a vacuum? After your episode airs, check the show’s hashtag on twitter. Allot a decent amount of time, given that you actually have a really difficult time searching for a hashtag on twitter. IS IT A MENTION? WHAT IS IT? Find what people are saying. See what landed on them, what moved them. Let them reflect your own work back to you. Ponder what you read. Make notes for next time.  Share the moment.

Hollywood News

January 16th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

This just in:  as the multitude of male hollywood producers /directors / writers currently accused of sexual harassment step aside in shame to write poems and hide in their vacation houses,  grown up baby Asian girl tourists in modest functional workout wear step in;  realize their dreams.

LOCATION, LOCATION (?)

January 15th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m off on a slightly last minute trip to cover set for an out of town shoot all week, and I’m fairly certain I cannot disclose the location as it might lead to spoilers, so I’ll just say I’m off to ********** where there will be lots of ******** and also ******** and probably some ******* and surely some ******** for lots of scenes in which ******** so basically just stay tuned for lots of vague, blurred out pictures of me with ******* and you know, also definitely *********.

still reaching

January 14th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Multiple years after this has been possible, I am finally a person who is putting deadlines and appointments and things into the internet / phone  instead of just writing it down in a calendar that I only sometimes have on me. I still only partially get it,  and don’t love that it reminds me 900 times that things are happening when I pride myself on remembering things and knowing what day / time it is on my own, though yesterday I DID say, GOOD MORNING! to the grocery store cashier at 6 PM. And even though I have all things in phone, I keep reaching for my calendar, reaching for paper with meetings scratched out with ink, ink smeared on my hand, paper wet with spilled water bottle, water smudging times and initials, and I miss touching it, finding a faint CALL ASP inked onto the side of my finger hours later, remembering to call.

PARADISE ALERT

January 13th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

While I am so sorry for everyone in Hawaii who rid the wave of this massively false alarm happened today, I’m just going to entertain myself the rest of the day by imagining people in bathing suits, lunging for pina coladas, crawling under patio furniture, careful so they don’t spill their drink.
