The Cheesemiester



I am shamelessly proud of everyone in my life, especially when they accomplish something out of the ordinary. If you ask my family, they will sheepishly admit that even though I am small in stature, I have an enormous capacity to cheer on the people who I care about with the spirit of a giant. This does not stop at bloodlines. Oh no, if you enter my family as a friend, boyfriend of one of my girls, or any other way, I will cheer you on in everything that you do. I am the consummate cheerleader.

Hence my need to introduce my oldest angel's boyfriend, R. Like my daughter, R is an actor and as an actor, he auditions for shows, commercials, movies, anything that he can do to utilize his craft. You must imagine my excitement and pride the first time I witnessed R in his debut Pizza-Hut commercial! Of course my daughter was modest about her boyfriend's accomplishment(actors can be like that), and so, it wasn't until I witnessed it for myself that I realized, "Hey, R is on a nationwide television commercial for Pizza-Hut!", as I replayed it several times. The next time I saw it, I made my husband wait to watch the next important play of a football game, so that I could freeze R's spot in order to photograph it, frame by frame. Of course my daughter thought that I had lost my mind when my husband told her what I had done, but that was only until my husband got ahold of R's cellphone number and called him one morning. He left R a message saying that he really liked him and all, but that he was getting tired of waking up each morning at five a.m., turning on Sports Center, and seeing R's face on the TV! After that, I think that R suspected that my husband was nuttier than I am, so I was able to take cover within his shadows. I like when that happens.

Anyhow, if you happen to be watching TV sometime, and you see R being called a "Cheesemiester" by his television roommate, you too, can say, "Hey, I know that guy!", and cheer him on as one of your own. He is a gifted actor and a very, very nice guy.(He brought me flowers when he came over for dinner.)

Honestly, these kids work very hard at what they do, and every opportunity that they get to perform brings them closer to their dreams. I am often in awe at my angel daughter's ability to memorize extensive lines of Shakespeare, and then recite them back in a way that causes my heart to swell. Acting is truly a gift and with all of the negative press out there about young actors who are abusing their positions in the public eye, there are thousands of well-adjusted, talented, hungry, young people who are just waiting for the opportunity to take their craft seriously. Waiting to share their gifts with the world. Waiting to do so with style, grace, and modesty. In my opinion, it is time to knock some of the actors off of their pedestals who take advantage of being in the spotlight and who do not appreciate how blessed they are to be doing what they love. Acting is not only a job, but it is also a calling. I am glad to know that there are young people who are coming up the line, like R and my angel daughter, who take their abilities seriously.

May you always have a cheerleader rallying for you, as you move through all of the different phases of your life. May you stand behind those you love, singing their praises, and rooting for them as they follow their dreams. Life is not always easy, so if we can cheer each other on, the rough spots might seem just a little bit smoother.

You ARE a cheerleader! I could've figured that one out! :-)

I'll be watching for The Cheesemiester. I'll shout out a little cheer on his behalf and let you know when I do!

How exciting! I imagine it is the same for actors as for writers or any other artist -- ANY bit of recognition is HUGE! Congrats to R! And keep us posted on AD1's successes. Such a tough business... just gotta hang in there. And what a lucky gal to have the ultimate cheerleader for a Mom. :)

...Gosh, I feel like I know a celebrity now! Any chance you know George Clooney? lol... ;o) If you do I sooooo wanna know about it! lol...(wink,wink)...

...And you are a cheerleader Debra. Not just in the lives of your close friends and family but to the blogging community as well. I look forward to your posts and your e-mails too! You're kinda like an Angel with pom-poms...lol ;o)

...Cheers to the "Cheesemiester"!

...Blessings... :o)

I love cheerleaders!!! I also love doing the cheering. I didn't realize that your daughter was an actor. I was a drama major for a few years in college. It was a lot of work but I loved it but God called me to be a Navy wife instead. Secretly, I would love to be be a QVC host. It's not as fancy as being The Cheesemiester but I think it would be cool.

I am very excited for R and for your daughter. I know it isn't easy to land nation wide commercials. Next time I see The Cheesemiester, I will whip out the pom-poms and do my best cheesy cheer!

Oh, Deb, I just LOVED this post! You are the consumate cheerleader when it comes to family and friends and you've boosted my spirits up on days that I didn't think it was possible.

Yeah for R!!! It's so hard to be ~almost~ in reach of that big break that will give you your heart's desire.

My youngest has the actor bug. She was in every junior high and high school play and her dream is to win an Oscar with me in the audience. I hope with all my heart that she follows that dream.

Take care and hope this is a good day for you.

Deb Dub, I can't thank you enuf for your uplifting commentary. I left WA on 12-19 to visit my son's family in MT and then on to CA to care for my ailing mom. 3 days ago I finally made it back home. Had to drive straight thru 'cause was being followed by a major snow storm. Old Pa had been melting snow for water due to a broken pipe. He didn't tell me 'cause he didn't want me to cut my visit short. So, here we are at the farm, under 3 ft. of white stuff, no water...but, I have your inspiring blog. Thanks so much!
Good luck to R, I'll watch for him. It's fun to watch a star on the rise!

Rick said...
