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.

The O.C.

Okay, so I know it's only a TV show, and an unrealistic one at that. But come on. Why are Summer and Marissa still sleeping in the same room, in the same bed? I guess it makes those late-night chat fests a little easier to film, but that place is huge. Are you telling me that there's no guest room that Marissa could stay in? Yeah, yeah, she was having nighmares about the whole Trey thing, but that seems to be forgotten now that she has Johnny to confide in.

At least now we know that Summer is not completely parent-less. Her workaholic father made a rare appearance last night. He knows that Marissa has been staying there, but he doesn't seem to think it's odd that she's sharing Summer's room. What is with these people?

Also, I know that this would ruin the dramatic conflict and force Johnny to give up his "poor me, I'm a poor kid" moping, but what happened to the driver who hit him in the parking lot? Don't these people know that when you're a pedestrian who gets hit by a car, it's your God-given right as an American to sue that driver for as much as you can possibly get? At the very least, that car insurance company should be on the hook for Johnny's surgery, not his poor night-shift working mother.

Again, yes, I do know it's only a TV show. I'm just saying...
