Packing, Comfort Zones + Long Lashes
I FLY OUT TO CALGARY TODAY!!!!! For those of you who are Canada inept, Calgary is in Alberta. Canadian cowboy country. The Canadian Rockies. Ring a bell? Probably not. Jeff is working on an AMC western episodic called “Hell on Wheels” about the building of the railroads. The Rockies is where we filmed Inception + Jeff, Tom (brother-in-law) + Deb (best sister-in-law ever) had previously lived there for 20 years, so I’m joining him there + going through all the MANY storage spaces he still has out there. Plus, while we were filming there it was the dead of winter + I didn’t really get to enjoy the mountains. Excited.

Common the rapper is in the show + Jeff likes to hang out backstage with him at rap concerts. Jeff’s so street!
Here’s a map of where I’ll be for those of you who are still confused about Alberta:
Here it is in relation to Vancouver:
Take notes. There will be a test.
Strangely enough, one thing that has calmed my anxiety the past couple days has been watching pieces of Jane Campion’s “The Piano”. I take little breaks from circling around my 568 sq ft apartment in overwhelming packing confusion. Not only is it one of my favorite movies, but maybe it’s the haunting soundtrack, gloomy beauty, + unbelievable New Zealand setting that soothe me.
And who can resist this mug? I mean, c’mon?! If that doesn’t say soothing, I don’t know what does??!! “That’s totally weird, I don’t get it.” you’re thinking. I completely agree.
Oh, by the way, I saw my friend Kaori the other weekend + her eyelashes looked INSANE LONG. She told me about a product called Lilash. You can buy it on amazon. It’s kind of expensive, but I thought it’d be nice to have purty eyelashes for the wedding. It’s applied like liquid eyeliner.
This is my second day using it, so if my upper eyelids start swelling up like the Elephant Man, I’ll be sure to let everyone know! Well, I’m off to do more errands + keep packing until my flight!!! I’ll post tomorrow in Canada!!! Still hasn’t hit me yet!!!! EEEEEK!!!!! Goodbye stars + stripes!!!!
Bon voyage, mon ami! Jeff’s movie looks very “There Will be Blood” as I can surmise from the trailer. Looks like some gorgeous wide-open Canadian scenery you will be surrounded by, though! Safe travels.
