Star Wars + Bacon = Welcome to the Best Twitter Conversation

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

The other night I was hanging with the geek gals at my place. When we get together, pretty much everything ends up on Twitter in some way, shape or form. What can I say, we’re all social mavens! After a full-on conversation regarding appropriate uses of The Force (for you Star Wars fans), I tweeted the following: Continue Reading

Space Vixens Need Love Too

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Like any chick dressing like a Space Vixen needs to worry about that! I wanted to share a few pics from the ITV Fest‘s annual Halloween Bash. I made this costume a while back and repurposed it for the event. Yup, those are tubes coming out of my back ala Dune-style. I had much cooler boots, but you know how it is standing all night in, literally, killer heels… We had a blast!

Amy Winehouse Sketch

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

I got an e-mail from my manager at close to midnight for an audition (and shoot if I booked) for the next morning. I’d be playing Amy Winehouse in a rehab sketch. So I got all dolled up as best I could… black bra, black eyeliner, crazy hair. Oh and I tried to get her mannerisms and British accent down in under an hour! (No I didn’t book it.

Alex the “Pumpkin Geek” recently sent me one of the coolest things ever… my face carved into a pumpkin!

I’m not sure what these pumpkins are actually made of, but they aren’t real. I.e. I can keep this forever!

Inspiration 101: A Shout Out to Awesome Fans

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

I have to say that the single most gratifying part of being an actress and on-camera personality is knowing that I am inspiring people. That’s been my life goal since I was a little kid, when I thought I’d be a stand-up comedian and spend my life making people laugh (until I realized how hard it was to do stand-up that is!). Comedy is, after all, the perfect remedy for just about any problem, right? I still do love to make people laugh, smile and feel comfortable and confident to just be themselves. I think being on camera shows people that you can get out there and do what you love!

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Ok, so that title may be a little misleading, but it got your attention, right? I meant that I am lucky enough to have been included on a short list of PR peeps (that look to all be geek-genre journalists) invited to participate in HBO’s incredibly fun new marketing campaign for Game of Thrones.

My blog Outta This World covers everything geek, so of course I was at the largest ‘nerdvana’ convention in the world: Comic-Con. I even wrote a song about it.
