Just wanted to apologize for my last post. It was rather a mess with all those links. I guess in all this time I had fogotten how to post. :) I just fixed a few links, and all the Helen goodness should now be visible.

Hellllo My Loves!

Sadly, I haven't been on here in a couple of weeks. It's so hard with my show and work, to keep up on the posts. I try my Helenest. It's just that this show is taking a lot out of me.....I can't even begin to explain it. I feel like some of the other main cast members are into it and some aren't......at all!

I have tried to read everyone's posts....I know I haven't commented, but still want to know how things are. I love to read all of these!

So, I know that I have said that Dixie was nominated for an Emmy! I cannot get started on this subject. She is like a mamma to me and Stace, AND we know the year she has had.....so these results are making us SOOOOOO UPSET!!!

She's like the wind, through my dreams. She rides the night next to me. She leaves me the moonlight, only the burning sunCollapse )

I know I have missed out on tooooo much with everyone! I can't wait to catch up and see how everyone is doing! Seriously, this play is sooooo keeping me busy!

meadowlark_85......I LOVE YOU! Thank you for being there and for being you!

Since I have spread some Dixie love, I NEED to post some Helen love. Otherwise, my post would be quite irregular.


My LOVE to everyone!

And these DO NOT GET A CUT!

They are too much perfection!


I miss ya all!

Hope everyone is well. I'm just getting caught up on some more LJ entries and myspace messages.

In the mean time, I have to share a few things. My whole last post was so AHHHH, I just got back and have to post. And yes, I still have more LA stories and pics, but I have a few things I want to share.

First off: My fellow Mirrenites. We are all quite aware of Helen's "stripper" or "pole dancer shoes" as she likes to call them. While in LA, Heather and I went to the shop on Hollywood Blvd. where she gets hers and bought the same ones.

So here is Helen in the shoes:

And here is Moi:

I have put off talking about this, because it makes me so sad. I found out moments before I got on the plane to LA that John Wallowitch had passed away. It came as a shock to me, Stacey and especially Dixie. We heard last week that he was sick and now he's gone. There will never be another John. He was talented, warm, hysterical and so loving. NYC won't be quite as bright without him. Thank you John.

Pardon the terrible quailty. This is a picture of a picture. I can't figure out the new scanner.

This is Addie, Stacey, John and me.

Back on the town. I'm steppin' out on my own. While others frown, I'm wearin' my great big smileCollapse )

I will have more LA stories to follow. Heather is uploading the rest of our pics when she gets home from work, and I'll have some commentary to go with the pics. :)

My family told me that Chase was the perfect little angel when I was away. Well, I come home, and he does things like this:

Yes, he took an entire roll of paper towels and had them all over the house in less than 5 minutes.

I haven't done a Helen pic spam in TOO LONG! So, it may not be the best or longest one, but it's still Helen, so we're all good.

You're in the arms of an angel, may you find comfort hereCollapse )

I just realized how many pics I have from Helen's time in Russia meeting her ancestors. I'll have a post soon dedicated to that. :)

I have to keep this as short as my chatty self allows me.....

I got back from LA really late last nite (oh, how I hate delays!) and spent today resting and having a birthday afternoon with my aunt and a surprise from my mom and grammy. The card my gram wrote to me was one of the most precious gifts I have ever recieved! What she said in her card.....the tears flowed for hours. This was my first birthday without with my Grampy, so the words she said in her card let me know that she loves me more that life and that Grampy did too...and always will. I know he was with me today and always.

Then there's LA. Oh, how I miss thee. My home away from home. For those of you who don't know, I was there from the 16th-21st. I WILL live there soon and cannot wait.

AND....I cannot tell you how amazing you ALL are!!!! To log on here today and see all of my birthday messages!!! WOW!! You all are the best!! Thank you SO MUCH....it means so much to remembered! WOW!!! AND all of the Helenified banner!! WOW!! AND the calls and myspace messages as well. They all really brightened my day! XOXO

I will post with LOADS of LA details later! Not only did I come home for my bday, but I also got the lead in the newest play her, The Sting. It's a variation of the film version and I play Billie, Robert Redford's girl. Such an amazing time! I ADORE rehearsal....AND get to work with Pam again! WHOO!

Again, thank you all so much! It means SO MUCH to me!

As I said before, I have many stories....both about the wedding and some crazy Heather and Dee times that are perfection! She has the pics from the night me, Heather and the gals from Bel Air celebrated a few days early! HELLO 25!

Here are some pictures from the reception on Sunday night!

Me and Popper:

You're beautiful, you're beautiful, and that's for sureCollapse )

Thank you again to everyone who sent me a special message or note! It means so much to me!! I feel so lucky to have such amazing friends and confidants there for me! Through different events in my life this year, I have realized the people who are truly there for me and who truly care.

Thank you all so much for my bday messages and amazing wishes!! It really means so much to me!!

Loads more LA trips to follow!!! :)

Helllllo again Loves!

Just wanted to post pics of my new hair. Gram was like, "I love it! You looke 16 years old again!" Ok, so not the effect I was going for. My mom saw it for the first time and said something to the effect...."Wow! I love it. It's very Helen-Dixie-esque of you!" heheheh!! Thank you Cheryl, for getting it right.

Ok, a few pics of the doo.

I had no make-up on, so I decided to have some fun with the eyes. :)

You are the reason, I wake up everyday and sleep through the night. You are the reason.....Collapse )

HELLLLLOOOOO My Chicken Lickin's!!!!!!

I feel like I haven't posted in forever.....

HAPPPPPPPY BIRTHDAY to the amazing, talented and fabulous sunring!!!! I hope you had the best day and will have even a more fabulous evening! You deserve it Jen!

Not too much is new. Oh, I got my hair cut today. Like 6 inches. And for those of you who know me....No, I don't have short hair now or the Kaite Bob. My hair had gotten sooooooo long! Seriously, I have never gone that long in my life. It was almost Cousin Itt like. OI. I think I shall post pics later, as I enjoy my new do.

So the Emmy's this year......I may have an attack due to the excitement and fabulousness that will be this ceremony! Seriously. Ok, so you have Helen AND Dixie up for awards. That right there's, enough to make me go crazy. Then you such others as: Mariksa Hargitay, Gena Rowlands, Kyra Sedgewick, Holland Taylor, Bill Macy.....OMG! How will I get through the night.

Otherwise....I'm just GEARING UP FOR LA!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOO!!! I am soooo ready! I have been ready since I left there last time. I cannot wait to move there...it's soooo me and "my fit!" I feel better when I'm there....more free and alive. CANNOT WAIT!

Soooooo.....I know how some perfection for you. Hmmmmm wonder who? lol. I am the new photo mod for HMAS. My new role has forced me to start organzing all of my Helen pics into categories and files. I've been working on it for over a week, and it's still not done. We revamped the web site and what not and now have a forum instead of talking by email. So check out helenmirren.net for a fun time.

Maybe back with new do pics....

As always, sorry for repeats. Though, it's Helen, so most of you shouldn't mind to much. :) My fellow Mirrenites may have seen some of these in my Helen birthday post on HMAS.

I see her from time to time.....in my dreams...from Losing ChaseCollapse )

A HAPPIEST of Birthdays to the one and only, Dame Helen Mirren!!

Thank you for always being so amazing, kind, talented, gorgeous, witty, warm, quirky, gorgeous, flawless. I have I said before, there are no words....

Thank you Helen, for being you.

In honor of Helen's birthday, you know what is coming up.

Hopefully, I'll update later as I'm about to head out just now.

Hope you all are well!


Happy Birthday dear Helen, happy birthday to you!Collapse )

Today was such a blah day. UGH! It was Grampy's birthday. He loved birthdays and holidays and fun and celebrating and friends and family around. WOW, I miss him sooooooo much!

We happened to be out at the cemetery today planning the funeral for the cats, Snuggles and Ruggles. We designed their headstone and their funeral will be tomorrow. It's just probably going to be me, gram, Chase, our Vet. and like 2 other people. But they more than deserve to have a little service....they were great pets and companions. Then we went and sat with Grampy for a bit and wished him a Happy Birthday and of course, cried.

The neighbors who live behind us are having a cocktail party for us tomorrow night. I'll need it and am quite excited. Jackie and her hubby, Bob, will be there.....even more excitement. I think I shall be taking pics tomorrow nite.

I freaking love Kathy Griffin! She never creases to crack me up. Yes, some people may not think her comedy is that funny, but watch her show on Bravo....she's aces man! I'm soooo seeing her when she comes to Chicago. I think she needs me on her staff.

I snagged this from my amazing, darling, fabulous Doll potionmistress LOVE YOU ASH!!!!

Meet my fabulous LJ friends. You guys are faboulousCollapse )

I just like seeing all of those icons there together. I must admit the number of Helen icons makes me quite happy! :)

And I snagged this fabulous find from the amazing sunring

My Fortune Cookie told me:
It is time to open your dream boxes.

So, as always, I am feeling the major need for some Helen Lydia. Some of these I have posted recently, some may be old and some may be new. Whichever they are for you.....enjoy!

In order to be irreplacable, one must always be differentCollapse )

current song: All for Believing: Missy Higgins

Sometimes it feels so good to just sit here, chill and listen to good music. I am always up for movies, but tonight I was so not into it. I just didn't want to sit. I wanted to get my PJ's on, come home, have a glass of vino, play some new music and rest. I haven't been able to do this in awhile and it feels so nice. Maybe I also decided to stay in because they were going to see the new Die Hard. Yeah, that could have a played a part too.

Mom and I are finally seeing Evening tomorrow night. Lets hope this Sunday the *CORRECT* times will be listed. Oi.

This was going around awhile ago, but with everything going on, I hadn't had a chance to answer my questions.

And the deal is: reply to this post, ask me to interview you, and I'll respond with 5 questions for you to answer.

I was interviewed by the fabulous accebonibur

1. What role do you think Helen should play that she has not tackled yet? Helen could read the phonebook on stage and she would be genius at it. I would say the lead female character in "Rasied in Captivity" by Nicky Silver and "Fefu and Her Friends" by Diane Leslie. Also, anything Noel Coward, Shaw, or Oscar Wilde. Also, Neil LeBute has some amazing female characters.

2. If you had to live abroad for one year, where would you live? LONDON!!!

3. What's your favorite cookie? Well, I would pick something sugar-free because I am odd about sugar. But if it's not Debbie being odd about carbs, then something with loads and heaps of buttercream icing on top!

4. Pepsi or Coke? I'm not a big soda fan, but I would say Diet Coke.

5. What is your dream role (in a play and a musical)? My dream roles are Maria Callas in Master Callas, Melissa Gardener in Love Letters, Jackie Susann in Paper Doll and several others. But those are the 3 I have wanted to play for quite a long time.

So today was rather summery and nice....if that makes any sense. Mom and I took Chase for a nice long walk then headed to the farmer's market for some fresh fruit and veggies. Then mom had a hair appointment, so I came home and went through some emails and checked out some stuff online. Come to find a site that someone had posted in the Helen group on LJ. OH MY! Like most of the event ones I had, but the caps from interviews and some of the *exclusive* ones I had never seen. Some of these exclusive ones inspired me to throw a bikini on, grab my new book, my ipod and oil and head out to the chaise lounge. Yes, Helen sunning in Italy on her balcony in a bikini inspired me to do the same. lol.

So, here are some of the interview caps that were on that site:

Does anybody know what it's like to feel larger than life? To look deep into your sould and not you're not aloneCollapse )

How was the 4th for everyone? Well, for those of you who live in the US and happen to celebrate the 4th. I have read back several days and caught up on some posts. Looks like some of your 4th's were quite fab! GOOD TIMES! Well, my 3rd of July was fabulous! The party went so well! About 15 minutes before I wasn't fully dressed and was running around finishing up the hors d'ouerves. But sure enough, but the time people start arriving for the cocktail/hors d'ouevers hour, things were underway. There was sooo much and that wasn't even dinner. Then came all the dinner food and then the dessert buffet. But everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and had a fabulous time just being together. People were saying how the good the food was, but I didn't get to taste one thing. I was chatting and running around getting things for people, so I never sat down.

AND....as some of you were wondering: OMG, our neighbors Jackie and Bob are major Deb people! Jackie could be like Helen and Dixie's close friend. She comes in wearing this little white suit and with a gold shell underneath and these high-heeled navy and gold peep toes. So 4th without being too 4th. lol! And she is having a cocktail party for us next month to meet some other people in the neighborhood. She told me that she could chat and shop and love me all day like a daughter. I was like you name the day and time. lol. Sadly, in the mix of things, my digy is missing. I can't find where it got packed anywhere! :( Hopefully I will find it and get pics and the next soiree. lol!

Things here are going better, but ok. I still get very sad about my kitties. Yes, they were pets, but they had been in my life so long, things are just so strange without them. And Gram is recovering physically but not mentally. She went and saw her surgeon last week and he said his mom and the same bypass surgery and was this way for 3 months and she hadn't lost a husband recently. So she's pretty much a mess. Hopefully in her case time will start to help her heal.

Just want to say thank you for your comments, sweet messages and love....both here, on myspace, IM and any other forum! It really means so much to me!

Now, as promised last post. I MUST post Helen pics. MUST. Like, I cannot and will not post another entry without Helen pics being included.

Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July!

We are going to go back to my archives for a super Helen pic spam!


You stepped out of my dreams and into my realityCollapse )
