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.

Mr. Pink is trapped in Mexico, thanks to Hurricane Henriette. It is fitting, I suppose, that the hurricane that is causing so many problems for him shares its name with his stepmother, the bane of his existence.

I knew this surf trip was a bad idea from the beginning. And even if the airport re-opens tomorrow, who knows if he and his friends will be able to get there? They are in Todos Santos, about 40 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, and for about 20 of those miles, there is just a dirt road that has a tendency to wash away in big storms.

He says that the house they are staying at is safe because it is made of concrete, and that they are on high ground, and that they have a generator and solar power and plenty of food. At least Hurricane Henriette is only a Category 1 storm. It would be much worse if he was in one of the areas being lashed by Category 5 Hurricane Felix. Still, I worry about him. I just want him to get home safely.

    Just FYI Astera:

    Todos Santos is 50 miles north of Cabo San Lucas and except when under construction, the road is completely paved the entire way. Both Todos Santos and Cabo San Lucas have many dirt roads, but Highway 19 is not one of them.
