THE SANTA CLAUSE….
Santa dads, therapist dads, all kinds of dads!!!
Give it a little watch?
My night’s work.
Best enjoyed while sipping Hennessy and making anagrams of the phrase “What’s next?”.

I deal with suicidal, unipolar depression and I take medication daily to treat it. Over the past seven years, I’ve had two episodes that were severe and during which I thought almost exclusively of suicide. I did not eat much and lost weight during…
Hammed Home Alone!
We did it again….drank to much and recalled the plot of a childhood favorite. You’re welcome, world.
Christmas In July 90’s Nostalgia
By Kristy LaPointe
Seconds made me feel a lot of feelings. Reading a graphic novel that is so clearly in the voice of me and my peers was such a thrill. Finding such a rounded, complex, female heroine/anti-hero was beyond exciting. Relating to her on (nearly) every level- spooky.
Of course the actress in me was just wants to play Katie so bad. I want to explore the character, portray the character, because, in a lot of ways I am the character.
Kristy meets Katie
or, How I AM this character in 5 quick examples.
I mean, us shorties have to stick together.
2. Sarcastic, mean, awkward, a little selfish…
This flawed, honest, real character is something I so rarely see in female protagonists. A girl who runs away to the basement to avoid an ex, who is so bewitched by the idea of getting to right every wrong choice, this is a character who is all of us.
3. Love of Cooking, food, so much time spent working in restaurants
While acting and writing are what I love to do, food and cooking have always been there as my other true passion. Being a treeplanting chef, running a juice bar, ghost writing nutrition blogs….this setting is my sanctuary.
4. Still figuring it out
I’d like to think I’m a little more grounded, but there is still a lot of uncertainty. Unlike your college years, when you’re in your mid to late 20’s, it seems like you’re supposed to have it all figured out. But we all still feel like dumb babies, and sometimes finding happiness and success in one department (relationships, career, health) just make the gaps in our life that much more apparent.
5. Crazy Hair
Sure mine is more curly, and hers more spiky,but crazy hair is crazy hair.
I mean hopefully I’m a little less self-involved and not continually making as many bad decisions. But you know, that’s where the 10 years of acting training come in.
But whether or not Seconds is made into a film, or a play, or weird mobile web series content you can only access on a Samsung galaxy- I realize the chances of me even getting to audition for the part are slim. My agent doesn’t even use twitter or read texts- so asking her to look into it seems like a bit of a stretch. Posting my own unsolicited youtube audition (which I am so not above) would still probably be seen as amateur and a little weird. But if anyone wants to have me potentially read for this potential part in a potential project- it would be a delight. You can call my agent or check out www.kristylapointe.com
And to Bryan Lee O’Malley - thanks for writing such a kickass, hilarious, complex female lead. It is exciting and encouraging and inspiring. It makes me want to keep writing.
It inspires me to write something funny and charming and sweet and weird and fantasy-ish and female driven. Or at the very least think abut doing that while binging Buffy for the billionth time on Netflix.
And most of all, this charming story made me laugh and smile the whole way through. Now I’ve got to go make some food before I get too hangry. Mmmm, food.

(P.S. This totally needs to be shot in Fredericton, NB. Pretty old buildings, river splitting the town in half….it’s perfect for it.)
Just shut up, Anthony, I don’t want to hear it. Listed by @kristylapointe.
I wrote this and the Listicle crew kind of loves it…don’t know how to break it to everyone that there is no Anthony.
