do you want lime with that?

I never thought I would say this.... but here it goes.

I, Sandra Ponce, being of semi-sound mind declare, that I think I may like coffee. 

I know. I know. You're thinking: "Ohh Sandra, you're silly". But, prior to my living in the PNW I did not like coffee. At. All.

Then I went at got a job at the buck and It's all going down hill. haha. Now, I'm not addicted and I generally stick with iced tea, but I've tried a few coffee items and hands down my pick is iced coffee with breve ( that's half and half to you non buck terminology savvy folks) and some sort of syrup. Toffee nut is nice, and so is hazelnut and coconut.

I can't believe that most of this blog has been dedicated to coffee. :-/

In other news, the first production meeting of BOWH went off without a hitch. I think that the group of designers will create an exceptional world for our actors to live in.  In the same vain I think that I will be able to do everything that's needed of me and ask for help when I need it. At least that's my goal for this show.

Woot. Go me!

The count down to quiet Speaks has officially begun. 17 days and counting. The cutting of the piece has begun and I'm excited to perform and get people thinking about gender and femininity and how we as women are sometimes our own worst enemies. I think that's the thing I love about quiet. That although, it's an arts community and does theatre, the main purpose is to get people thinking about the skewed way we see each other, why we judge, and how we each can make a difference. I've really never been more proud of the work that I'm going in the art/theatre community than since moving here and starting with quiet. It has become my family and I truly hope to be with them for a long long time to come.

and now for something completely different.

I think that I'm becoming  immune to the smell of pot. It's literally everywhere.

well I'm out. it's beer time with Geoff and Lissa.

oh yes. yes. it is.

These are the days of our lives

... at least that's what they say.

This blogging thing isn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. First of all... I forget that I have this thing. 2, Most of the important stuff... people already know. And, well, the not so important stuff doesn't seem important enough to blog about.

I wish that I had these wonderful epiphanies right before I sit to write...but I dont. Mostly, they come betwen the hours of midnight and 4 am, and at that hour I'm far to lazy to pull out my computer.


Let's see... It's been about a week and a half that I've been in the new apartment. It's rather nice, and have i mentioned that I have an awesome roommate? Well, I do.

The show opens tonight, the cast is soooo ready. And, I'm really proud of them. I wish we had a longer run, but, ce la vie. These three nights are going to be amazing. I couldnt be happier than to be working with quiet and the whole team. Up next is "Beating of a Warriors Heart"... which p.s. EXCELLENT story and characters. I'm excited to stage manage, mostly because I want to prove that I can do it... haha. That's the way it's always been though. Give me a challange and I'll prove that I can get through it... I  might be a little beat up in the process, but I'll give you 150% and you'll wonder how you ever did this witout me before...hahah

hmmm lets see. ...OHHHHHHH Valuable lesson kids : you know what happens when you assume? You make and ass out of you. Not of me.  No, no, this is isn't a personally learned lesson...just a reflective lesson... does that make sense.... :D  hahaha. I think this is why I dont assume. Although, it's oh so easy to do. Alright boys and girls; lesson # 2: Not everything has to be devulged on Facebook. Remember when 250 of your not so close friends and family weren't all up in your baby mamma drama?! Luckily...I try not to update facebook with all of my happinings and if your lucky...you know what's going on in my life. If you dont and are curious just ask... There's nothing like a friendly phone call. Oh, yeah, have I mentioned I'm kinda over text messaging? No? Well, I kinda am. 

ALSO people need to learn to SILENCE their cell phones in the library. Your ring tone is not so awesome that EVERYONE needs to know that you are getting a call or text message. Get over yourself! Thanks for playing.

OOOOHHHHH probably the most exciting thing coming up is that I'm performing @ quiet speaks on June 25th. Yes, ladies and gents my performing hiatus is coming to a close. I'm putting together a piece about women and body image using parts of Eve Enslers "The Good Body". 

It's gonna be rad.

Why you ask?

Well, I'm fucking awesome at the whole acting thing. ;)
