Dear Diary,
Can it be that I’m slowly recovering from the bronchitis?
I cough sliiiiightly less which is a vast improvement as there has been NO improvement in 10 days. I’m so sick of being fucking sick. Enough already. There’s a SARS case up north at my dad’s clinic. Jeez..
However I started sneezing today and I mean REAL sneezes that shake buildings.
Shooting is trotting along [nicely?] and we’re halfway through the picture. Today I was once again in the slums among crazy people and immigrants and rotten fruit on the pavement and homeless people and the HEAT. SO hot today. I’m done in.

Filming at the dirtiest areas of Athens; I cough like mad between takes.
I may have pneumonia. I’m so tired. So tired.

I’m deathly ill. I sound like a donkey when i cough. 2 days off. I’ve taken enough cough syrup to kill an elephant…

Great. I now have a nasty cold too.

Does anyone have Mentho-Mulsion?!?!

So annoying.

God. I’m so emotionally drained. Not a fun ride. I’ll get lynched after the movie’s out.

Dear Diary,
Today I shot the scenes where I’m new in town, broke, homeless and I wash car windows at the traffic lights to make a buck [well, a Euro]. I must have washed a particular window shield 60 times for one scene. Then this older, veteran window washer comes and kicks my butt for taking his spot on the highway. The person playing him was an amateur and was VERY rough. My shoulder hurts. It was fun and therapeutic! The atmosphere was good and a friend of mine was also doing a day’s shooting with us, she played a woman who argues with her husband and I eavesdrop while washing their car windows. Tomorrow we shoot my arrival in the big scary city. By bus, at this old, decrepit bus terminal at Liossion.
Hec just read me his new script and it’s really wonderful; it’ll be a fucking great movie. I’ll play a school teacher. hehe
←Look! Kim is falling..
I hope I book Koutra’s new film. There’s a super role for me there. Of course half of my friends are up for it too.

Today was my day off from shooting Delivery, so we started work with Syllas on his next short film. We shot a scene in the beautiful afternoon light. I love working with him.

Dear Diary,
“Someone” needs to assimilate a rudimentary set of good manners and do it FAST, at least when it concerns me. When I think i have 8 weeks left working with some of the dumbest goons I’ve ever met..

Senile, boring, spoiled son of a bitch.

Dear Diary
Home early today. It’s only 2am. My knees and fingers hurt. I had to carry Alexia down a flight of stairs and onto a bed around 30 times. The set’s so filthy but well made I think.

Hec won an award [$$$] for his film.

Dear Diary,
Shooting this movie’s hard. For many reasons. Primarily because of his shocking lack of manners. Only 9 more weeks. Errikos is so fucking g
reat though, today was our first day shooting together. He’s such a kid. I was too busy/angry/melancholic. I returned the motorbike to the assistant director ’cause I’m pretty sure I’ll run into legal trouble. I have such an impatience for laws, rules and idiots. I was constantly riding it on the wrong lane and never stopping at red lights. And it’s only been my 1st week of riding a motorbike. I wonder how much more ruthless my driving will become when I get my own bike in September. I had to take my clothes off today for a scene which I hated doing. I like to be naked for sex scenes but not on my own. All the flaws -so many of them- scream blue murder!

We had been shooting in a cemetery today.
What beautiful graves.
These girls died in 1964 [the younger] and 1958 [the older]
They were the wife and daughter of a general. He was buried there too.
