The Fabulous Adventures of Astera: Writer/Actress for Hire

Meet Astera (aka: me), a star in her own mind. Our plucky little heroine has embarked on not one but two difficult, low-paying career paths: writing and acting. Witness the menial jobs! The unreasonable demands! The quirky friends and family! And the glimmer of success just ahead! Through it all, Astera maintains her core beliefs: 1) She is destined to be fabulous 2) Everything is more fun with a cocktail.

Okay, That Does It

For a long time now, I have been distraught over the downfall of proper English. u know what i mean right? its like, no one kares about grammer anymore. not gr8. (See? Isn't that annoying?)

Well, I have done enough complaining. I have decided to take action! And it was my beloved Alias that inspired me to do so. Last night, Arvin Sloane said, "[They want] their own SD-6, a unit that officially doesn't exist, comprised of team members who have no apparent affiliation to the CIA."

I can't believe that even the highly-paid professional writers on Alias don't know the difference between comprise and compose! Thus, I have started a new blog, "Tips from Copy Editrix." I am under no illusions that it will reach the masses and show them the light, but I hope at least to attract other "word nerds" who will commiserate with me over the sorry state of language today. Check it out.

That's all for a few days. I will be winging my way to Sin City this evening, and I expect to come back thoroughly debauched. So, I may not be posting for several days. But never fear...I shall return with new adventures to share!

    Astera, I feel your pain. I fired off an e-mail to The Apprentice when Stacie J. was listed as a "restauranteur" on the show. It drove me nuts.

    Too bad she was fired so quickly, so I never got to see whether the received my e-mail.

    PLD -- They must not have. When Stacie J. returned for the last episode (remember, they brought back the previously fired ones to help?), they still spelled it "restauranteur".

    Silly television folks.
