The Soken Word Takes a Hiatus!

I am taking a little summer vacay. You know what they say, all work and no play… well, doesn’t really apply to me. My work is play. I get to drink and tape myself saying silly things. But, I’ll indulge the idiom.  And I will graciously leave you at least a little somethin’ somethin’:

  1. Some pics from a recent shoot. Drink it in because this is the “Soken” part of this week’s alternative. And because a picture’s worth 1,000 words. P.P.S. Cathy Baron is a goddess. Cameran Surles 1055Cameran Surles 825

2. The “Word” part. I wrote this. Ya huh. Yes, I did.

The Soken Word – Search for the Light

I don’t know about you, but Wednesdays are my favorite days for existential crises.

Bet you didn’t think I was going there, did ya? Of course, I’m kidding! Existential crises can happen at any time, any day. If you don’t know what I’m talking about and have never had an existential crisis… are you alive? But alas, that’s the question, isn’t it?!?!

Oh no. I need more booze. This week, I am adding to The Soken Word a weekly wine tip. This week: drink orange. (click HERE to see what I’m drinking)

The Soken Word – I Look Like a Pirate in This Shirt (aka Kindergarten)

This week on The Soken Word I discuss the pros and cons of being an adult vs. being 5.


The ability to entertain yourself in the pool for HOURS

Snack time (lookin’ at you, Ants on a Log)

Pajama sets with footies

Party favors

You don’t yet know about social media

Santa Claus



Only liking cartoons

Not having the ability to use your words

You don’t yet know about social media



Drinking champagne in the middle of the day

(there’s probably more, but none seem quite as important as this one)

I N T R O D U C I N G . . .


Rose all Day

I’ve decided to use this blog as more of a… well, blog. A forum for all my musings and ponderings, catharsis and wanderings. I have for several years now written and performed Spoken Word Poetry (read: I’m a white girl slam poet). I have also for several years now drunk and enjoyed wine. Negronis. Martinis. A well timed digestif every now and again. Really all booze. It made sense to me to combine the two(s). No, I will not always rhyme. But I will, Wednesdays at 3 Pacific Standard Time. Click the link, pour yourself a drink and enjoy the first installment of The Soken Word.

The Voice Behind The Fence

Directed by Paul Kampf. It’s a little long, but it’s (unfortunately) oh so relevant right now.

“As in a theatre, the eyes of men, after a well-graced actor leaves the stage,
are idly bent on him that enters next…”

-William Shakespeare
Richard II

Wise words by Billy Shakespeare. As an actor, you got to give that man some props. And, that’s just what I’m doing in this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival. I am starring in the US premiere of LOVE LABOURS WON, the critically acclaimed Shakespearean pastiche play. (If you don’t know what a pastiche is, that’s OK. Neither did I. Think: parody, but in a good way). This play won Pick of the Fringe in Edinburgh 2 years running (that’s a BFD), and now we’re doing it here. Check out the website to read more of the effusive reviews and check out flier below for show times!

And sometimes, I’m a bad ass. Yes, that’s a gun in my pocket. And no, I’m not happy to see you. Thanks Lauren Snowden and Ryan Richmond for a great shoot. Ha. Get it? Shoot.

Improv this Saturday!

Poetry not your thing? That’s fine. I’ll just talk about how uncultured you are behind your back. Instead, you can come see my group All Your Friends perform some knee slapping, laugh out loud improvisational theater at the Elephant Theater  at 9 pm as part of the LA Indie Improv Festival. Take your pick, but I better see you either Friday or Saturday night. K, thanks.
