Hearts galore.

This week has been fast and furious and I love it. Aside from working on my own projects, I’ve been working on a new HALLMARK Christmas Movie entitled, “Hitched For The Holidays” alongside some fantastic actors that I’ve had the honour to play with. I’ve been cast as Joey Lawrence’s sister in this romantic comedy. It’s kinda funny when you meet one of your teen heart-throbs! HA…I remember in grade 7 going to a Toronto Blue Jay game and there on the jumbotron was Joey Lawrence. Fast forward some years ahead and boom I get to call him my “brother”…… Whoa!

HEART DAY . It’s funny when a holiday approaches…there are those who adore the festivities and the hoopla of it all (that’s me) and those who abstain from the joy of it all because  “it’s just commercialism”. To each their own but I find that those who abstain need to make a point of begrudgingly expressing their lack of joy for it. WHY? Let’s face it, aside from any occasion we need love. We want love. We love to be loved.  It makes you feel good. Plain and simple. It really doesn’t matter if you’re single or have that special someone, there is always room for feeling admired or loved. Weather it be a simple Valentine (I miss those days of giving your friends cards) some cinnamon hearts or a big ol kiss, I’m a sucker for any occasion where flowers, chocolate, wine or shoes are involved. Even if I buy them all for myself.

Early mornings and late nights have caught up with me and allowed me to be a sicky poo poo. The best part?  I get to take the day to sleep and RELAX. Something I am not used to doing. I love wrapping myself on the couch with a blanket, pillow, a cup of tea and endless episodes of a tv show I’m engrossed in or having a moviethon. I was even lucky enough to have some bitters and water brought to me in the week hours of the night by my lovebird. What a guy…..and then he moved to the couch cause I was keeping him awake.

Well for those who didn’t see 60 Second Tips With Sicoli last week…check it out. Not enough time to hit the gym? I’ve created a special workout routine in the bathtub. It’s not only easy…it’s real real fun.

 

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE! and plant a special kiss on someone – CS xx

The Bedwetter

I love reading books in the bathtub. I find it to be a relaxing way to end the day…Unless of course I doze off waking up to frigid waters and a sopping wet book. Not so fun. Luckily Sarah Silverman’s first memoir, “The Bedwetter Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee” kept me interested from her own written FORWARD to the AFTER FORWARD written by “God”.  I love reading memoirs and biographies, anything from comedians to rock musicians. Reading about people’s lives inspires and encourages me to appreciate my personal struggles and determination in the industry.

What I love about this book, and Sarah Silverman is that she is never afraid to poke fun at her own expense. She’s rude and crude yet sweet and sincere. I am a fan of her potty mouth and her ability to  push the envelope with her shocking and clever humor. In this book, we learn about her struggle with depression as a teenager, her struggles as a comedienne, her battle with soaking the mattress from her childhood into her early adulthood years and the many controversies she’s encountered that have made her the strong and  successful woman that she is today. Here is a an excerpt from her book,
