Being an extra is kiiiiind of boring. We checked in at 1:30. I got into my uniform. They changed my best friend from waitress to vacationing person. We're just sitting in this room waiting for our scene to be shot. They're still shooting that scene from the morning. The cool PA guy told us that Mendes shoots each scene a million times. I'm not even nervous about my scene anymore. We're supposed to stay in here but we snuck out to watch more filming cause that's how we roll.

We just went to hair and now were waiting for makeup. I forgot my iPod in the car so that sucks.

I've heard it's all fun and games until the Hurry Up and Wait part of filming. Is it fun having someone else doll you all up though? I wonder if you were in a movie with a different director if you wouldn't have to wait so long.

Also, is Kate Winslet around? She seems like a cool lady.

Limonada, excellent updates! I am so excited for you. I was reading along at work but couldn't post. When I saw this:

Sighting! Sighting! For reals this time! We are watching him and Myanmar shoot a scene. He's beardaliscious and ladies he's wearing glasses! Which I don't know why but it makes him look tasty!

and this:

Update: We have to get out of the shots while they're filming but during the break we made eye contact and I smiled at him and he smiled back and waved. My heart stopped.

all of my body parts stopped functioning. I hope you get some time with him tonight now that you're waving buddies.

Myanmar

Who is that? Maya Rudolph?

Jun 3rd 2008

It must be.

Jun 3rd 2008

I want to respond to you all but my phone can't cut and paste and I don't want to type up to quote. I am pantless right now, my pants were too long and they're hemming them. Tiger asked if I could take my outfit home. I don't know what kind of waitress fantasy he has but this is a boring uniform, khakis and a peach polo.

Myanmar was a result of the predictive text on my phone but now that I look a it, it sounds funny that way.

And yes, it was kinda nice to have my makeup and hair done. I think we're close to being called in.

This cracked me up. Silly Tiger.

Alright sluts, back to the slut off. That was just one of the really awesome parts of this thread.

Good luck, for the bazillionth time, LemonPartyAde

Really, Madge? I doubt it. Whatever body part governs squeee-ing seems to be working fine! :-)

Admit it...you were expecting a much skeevier response from me, weren't you?

I only squee in text.

Hmm, I must admit you haven't been yourself lately.

I assumed this was intentional and found it quite witty and hip. You should have run with it.

Update: John is wearing a flannel shirt and khaki shorts. Also, It is freaking hotttttt to hear him say fuck. That is all.

Time for a cold shower.

It just seems like everyone should know about it. I forget that it's only us at the moment! It's just so damned exciting!

That means that when the word gets out to OT, we can be all pompous and say things like "Oh, that? I've known about that for ages."

Being an extra is kiiiiind of boring.

One of my friends was an extra in Sideways and that's what he said...I think the fangirl part of me overpowers that aspect, though, because I would totally be up for being an extra.

Jun 3rd 2008

I imagine being an extra in a porno is probably pretty exciting. You get all the behind the scenes scoop, you learn about what a fluffer does, etc. Plus, everybody's naked and having sex.

Jun 3rd 2008

I had always thought that the real phrase was "in like Flint" and the other etymology was a folk etymology. Guess I had it backwards.

I thought this is where in like flint came from

Perez Hilton is reporting that Johnny K. has been seen about the town with a good-looking hispanic girlfriend on his arm.

This is emotionally magnificent:

That's funny, because HispanicEngineerazzi.com reports limonada has been seen about Tuscon with an unidentified white, pretty-boy Hollywood type on her arm.

I assume lemoñadé's phone died again.

So did this whole forum. Where are the west coasters?

Jun 4th 2008

Smokin' the hashish.

Jun 4th 2008

So did this whole forum.

Aren't we in the quiet time now? I know that I typically get to work and dewhite the threads, add comments if I want, and then wait a while before activity kicks in again. Silly people sleeping in other time zones.

It must be funny to have hair and makeup and costume work on you for a while just to end up looking like a dumpy waitress. I mean, I assume they are not going for glamor waitress.

Jun 4th 2008

Must she be either dumpy or glamorous? Is there no middle ground?

I'm a bit disappointed to log on and find no update from limonada. I can't wait to hear how the shoot went.

Schlax, ST! We all know lemoñadé will pony up all the juicy details as soon as she can. She's never let us down before. Patience, oh, anxious one.

Jun 4th 2008

You know what I mean...maybe "dumpy" was not the right word. They want her to look just like a normal person, but she has to go through makeup and hair styling and costume in order to look "normal".

Is there makeup that can take away the Mexican-ness?

Maybe...but it will take major surgery to take away your Canadian-ness.

Jun 4th 2008

I gotcha. But we all know that movie "normal" is much cuter than real life normal. Like, her skin will look flawless and glowing and her hair will be an average style but it will be perfectly styled averagely.

Jun 4th 2008

Where are the west coasters?

Woah, there...it's only 7am. I know I just woke up, so I don't expect many other west coasters to be bouncing around the threads.

Jun 4th 2008

Slackers.

Update: Sam thought the lighting wasn't right last night so they moved our scene to today. Our call time was 7:15 today and now I'm Waiting for my pants again. Yesterday, they hemmed them by gluing them and now they're really hemming them. I'm Waiting for hair and makeup. I could get used to this. You guys freaked my freak about being able to see my panty line on the big screen. You couldn't really see it yesterday but I'm rocking the thong today. Now, I'll have a wedgie all day. TMI? They're making a big deal about the waitstaff and we get priority on everything in here so thats kinda cool.

Enough of boring you with me, you probably want to hear about John. Lets see, he's wearing flip flops and has nice feet. We're gonna get to work with him in an hour, they say. I haven't talked to him yet but Cool PA guy said he was gonna hook it up. I'm hiding my camera in my waitress apron thing. Its not really an apron because it just goes around the waste and has pockets. Oh pretzel: a lot of the production crew works on The Office. They are proudly wearing their DM hats.

Jun 4th 2008

Have I told you lately that I love you, lemoñadé? Have a great day on set!

Jun 4th 2008 edited

Thanks for the update, lemoñadé. Sounds like today is gonna be a big day for you!

Update: Sam thought

Sam? You're calling him Sam now? You are so Hollywood.
