Pregnant Pause

I was all set to write a post beweeping my outcast state. You see, no one wants to hire a pregnant actor. Or, perhaps they do, but the roles are few and far between, and I'm not playing in the Big Leagues, so those roles don't filter down to me.

I've been somewhat depressed lately, troubling deaf heaven with my bootless cries, because I am finally at a point where I feel I can do a show again. Where I feel I deserve to do a show again. The Boy is weaned. My supplementary schooling is over. I'm finally at a point where I feel I can commit to outside activities with relatively no guilt, and what do I do? I go and get myself pregnant. On purpose (well, if not entirely on purpose, at least not by mistake). I can only look upon myself for this minor quandry.

i can see how, in the acting profession, pregnancy would be a bit of an, erm, obvious disadvantage.

unless you were playing a role that required a big beer gut? huh? huh?

no. sorry. i got nothin'...but good luck wishes. :)

What about a class for fun? That what I keep missing, The ability to do something just because I'm curious about it. But working two nights a week already, I'm just not willing to give up another night to be away from my girl. Sigh. Sacrifices, huh?

Okay, so slightly off topic: does any one else get annoyed at the commercials where the couples are all...coordinated? Why no interracial couples? HUH?

Hey, your almost at the half way point! Once your over the hump...its pretty much the same as before.

(BTW, about your comment back at Beck's: I think we share breastfeeding experiences. And in the end with the second kid: I bottled.)
