Princess Jasmine :)

Kittens are too freaking cute for their own good!

My friend Crystal invited me along with her roommate and another friend to go to the animal shelter. Crystal really wanted a cat for her birthday, and she has been scouting animal shelter websites to see what was available!

They were supposed to have a kitten fair today, with different kittens for adoption! Only thing was, when we got there, most of the kittens had already been adopted. We only happened to go back into the cat room, and one of the workers in the shelter said that there were two kittens available for adoption in this other room.

That is when we all meet "Jasmine"! She is the cutest, scrawniest little purring machine ever! The moment Crystal got to hold her she wasn't climbing all over like most kittens, she was just cuddled on her chest purring up a storm and looking at all of us!
What is funny is that I was thinking that she should be named Jasmine, and so was Michelle and Crystal! All three of us came up with the same name for her at the same time! So it was kitty fate LOL! Here is me with the little princess herself!

Afterwards we got lunch and then went shopping! Kittens, food, shopping, friends, perfect day!

Off to watch Netflix dvd's and catch up on youtube!

Thanksgiving :)

Let me tell you about my day yesterday, LOL! First off I got up, and went for a hike! It was a gorgeous day, the weather was amazing!

After hiking, I signed up to volunteer at this thanksgiving dinner in Santa Monica! Seriously, one of the coolest things I have ever done! There are hundreds of people there helping out in this huge auditorium! Here is the website about the event:
They not only served food, there were free flu shots, haircuts, makeup, free clothes, music, etc!

Most of the people coming in were homeless, or single, or elderly. All of the turkeys are donated, cooked already, throughout the day people kept dropping them off! I was originally assigned to kitchen post production, so to help out in the kitchen after everything was done. But, when I got there they needed someone to go help carve turkeys so that is what I did for two hours!

It is funny that they assign the pretty much vegetarian girl to carve turkeys, but I was game! I am a quick learner LOL! It was very primal ripping those suckers apart! I would encourage everyone to volunteer at least for a little bit on your future Thanksgivings, it really makes you thankful for all that you have.

Then I got invited to come to an "orphan" Thanksgiving as my friend Michelle's house! It was Michelle, my friend Crystal, Michelle's friend Ryan, Michelle's Grandpa, and me! We pretty much cooked, ate too much, and laughed a lot! I love holidays, and this year was pretty special indeed!
And I was even more blessed, because my Thanksgiving video got featured on Youtube under comedy! This is the 6th time they have featured my videos, and I just feel so honored each time they do! I LOVE YOUTUBE!

Off for a hike and then catching up on the work I didn't do yesterday! Thank you as well to everyone who watches my stuff, words cannot describe how grateful I am to you guys!

Hugs and Love,

Sunday Short Blog :)

I went back and forth this morning as to whether I wanted to film my Thanksgiving video today or tomorrow, today won out!

If there is one thing I have learned, when having a good hair day, film an episode! LOL! When you have those rare days where everything magical clicks, take full advantage!

This is gonna be a short blog! Usually I put in pictures from filming, but kind of in a rush today! Off to a later service at church!

Hugs and more Hugs,

Friday Filming Fun! :)

I am so lucky to be in Los Angeles following my dreams! My favorite thing to do in act, and that is what I got to do all day today, yeah!

For one scene that I wanted to film for a future R.A.T. episode, I needed to rent out a space, because I wouldn't be able to film it at my apartment or at the park LOL! I found a really cool theater close by where they had a room that looked like a dance studio.

This episode will probably go up in two weeks, as I am trying to do something for Thanksgiving which I will film Monday!

Here are some stills from todays adventure! As usual I don't like to tell you too much about my upcoming shows, it is more fun to make you wait! But, feel free to guess away based on these images!

If you haven't seen my new episode, here is Rhonda's round three of jokes!

Off to edit! I was gonna take the night off, but I am really excited to start piecing things together! Editing is like a puzzle, you have to try and see what fits where!

Hugs and Mystery,

The Clay Oven

I have only had Indian food maybe once in my life, and that was many years ago!

Last night was my amazing friend Crystal's birthday party! She reserved a table that this Indian restaurant in Sherman Oaks called "The Clay Oven", which was rumored to have really good food!

Haha the rumors were true! Everything was really yummy, I don't know how to pronounce any of the titles thou or I would tell you what I ordered LOL!
It was such a nice little get together, I just love birthdays!

Off to prep for filming this week! I am getting ahead on my episode again, go me!

Hugs and Energy,

My friends are Dirty, Literally! :)

I went for a hike this morning with a friend of mine! The weather is beautiful here and warm, just how I like it! When I got back home I got a call from my other friend Taylor and Anthony!

They came over and chilled at my place for a bit, because some of Taylor's film school friends were using his apartment to film at!

Haha only thing is, both of them hadn't showered for a couple of days! I guess that is what film school does to a person, Here is me trying to avoid his greasiness!

Haha Taylor you are probably reading this, and you know I love you bud, but I had to share this with my peeps LOL! Too Funny!

Off to write a script and work on locations for the week! I am filming another R.A.T. episode with awesome Joe Nation! Can't wait!

Hugs and Inspiration,

Playing in my Kitchen :)

I was out hiking this morning with my roommates dog, and I came up with an idea for my next episode! Actually lots of ideas! I do my best thinking when I am in motion.

I am lucky that my roommate works during the day sometimes, because I totally took over and re-arranged our kitchen for filming LOL!

I am not saying what the episode is about, I like to torture you guys! Haha not really, I just like the surprise part! But here are some teaser images:
I also uploaded my new video today! Brave Rhonda decided to ask a guy out on a date, her first after the breakup with her ex-boyfriend Steve. Things didn't quite go as planned thou:

Hope you enjoyed it! Off to edit, going to hang out with a friend tomorrow so catching up on work tonight!

Hugs and Cupid,

Spontaneous Disneyland Adventure! :)

I was all set and ready to film this morning when my friend Taylor called me! We were talking last week about going to Disneyland, but we hadn't really picked a day. I have a seasons pass, so I it really doesn't cost me much each time we go!

I really should have filmed the opening to my next episode, but I had so much fun that working extra hard the rest of the week is worth it!

So Taylor, Will, his girlfriend Megan, and I went for a day of play! Here are some random shots from our outing!
While is line for "Pirates of the Caribbean" we made our best pirate faces! Argghhh!
At the end of the day we went and hung out at the Science Center! They have this machine where you can see what you will look like in 50 years if you a smoker, or overweight, etc. Don't smoke peeps, it isn't good for the future as you can see LOL!
There is also this really cool "House of the Future" thing, were everything is what they are projecting to be in modern houses! I fell in love with the girls room, they had this really cool mirror that has a camera so even from up close you can see yourself full length! I want it, hellooooo Santa... HAHA!

Off to do a bit of work and then pass out! Wish you guys could have come along! I really want to get back to putting up my episodes on Thursdays, so I should have my next episode up soon!

Hugs and Friendship,

Crystal + Brittani = Trouble :)

I really wanted to do a lot of my work on youtube today, but God had other plans. Our internet has been being funky since this morning, hopefully I will make it through writing this blog before it goes out again LOL!

I love Disney movies, anything cheesy/happy/feel good/leave the movie theater smiling kind of movies.

My awesome friend Crystal wanted to hang out, so I was like "Heak to the Yes!". We both had a very full week, so we wanted to do something the required very little effort, so the natural choice was go see a movie.

I kind of wanted to see High School Musical 3, and Crystal is a musical theater junky and wanted to see it too!

We didn't really want anyone to see us seeing the movie!
It was actually really good! The budget must have been huge between the wardrobe, sheer number of bodies, and the scene setups! It was so cute because every time Zach Efron took off his shirt and even appeared on screen the younger girls in the audience would start giggling and whispering! LOL! :)

Off to prep for tomorrow, I have to start editing on my next R.A.T. episode! The episode I filmed before vacation but just didn't seem to get around to editing before I left!

Hugs and Music,

Busy Busy BUSY! :)

Since I landed back in LA, I have not stopped moving! But thankfully I love to work and I love being busy, so I am in my element at the moment!

I had to get up at 3am on election day to be in Norwalk, CA at 5:45am. I managed a promotion for where we gave out free hot chocolate and coffee to voters! I had a blast and got a little wet because it rained a good portion of the morning!

After getting off work, I was able to sit down and edit my footage from my Portland trip! Here it is in all it's youtube glory!

I spent most of yesterday just catching up on messages! I had 400 in my inbox from not answering anything for two days LOL!

Today, I filmed two youtube collab videos and was able to finally get my ringtones on!

BACK from Lovely Portland!! :)

I just got back to Cali today from Portland, Oregon! Soooo tired because I had soooo much fun!

It was really cool getting to finally go visit my older brother Blake, because I have never been to Portland!

Blake works for Intel there and has been bugging me for about a year now to come see where he now lives!

It is such a cool city! I am a big lover of old building and character, and that is exactly what it had!
I also had the privilege of being there for Halloween, and let me tell you, Downtown Portland on Halloween looks like Mardi Gras! I have never seen so many people dressed up in such a small area in my life! I was a Flapper and Blake was a gangster Vampire....I think...he was for sure a vampire but not sure what the rest of his costume represented LOL!
We went out with about 15 of his friends to dinner and then dancing! Our group dwindled as the night went on, and by 2am or so it was just my bro, his friend Dave, and I! We were the die hards LOL!

Off to edit footage from my trip! I will try to get it up on youtube by tomorrow if I can! PORTLAND RULES!

Hugs and ZzZzZ's,
