Welcome to my first blog. I have been sitting in front of my computer thinking of what to say that will make me sound profound, intelligent, funny and interesting. I have reached the conclusion that I am neither intelligent, profound, funny nor interesting. Oh well, instead, I'll just tell you a little bit about my week.

I spent a lot of time at CBS Television City, where The Young and the Restless is filmed. I am immersed in a really fun storyline for the summer. Tune in, it will be a hoot. I will tease you with this: Kevin inadvertently gets embroiled in some misdeeds that may land him in some hot water. I had a lot of fun this past week working with Michael Graziadei (Daniel) and Adrienne Frantz (Amber). The Grove is right next door to the studio, so I'd walk over for lunch to feed my ever growing green tea addiction. Here's an inside tip to any fans of the show visiting Los Angeles: Go to The Grove between the hours of 1 and 3 pm and you are bound to run into a gaggle of Y&R actors.

I also spent some time this week looking at some shirts and ties. I have always worn green ties to the Daytime Emmys, so I am trying to figure out if I should check my OCD at the door and go with something different, or stick with the trend. Thoughts?

You soap fans are probably well aware that the Daytime Emmys are just around the corner (June 15). I am fortunate enough to be nominated again this year in the outstanding supporting actor category, so I guess I should be prepared on the off chance my name is actually called. For the record, I don't know how much of a shot I have. I always trust my instincts, and this year, they are telling me that I should get comfortable in my seat, as I will be in it for the duration of the award show. Then again, my instincts once told me getting a colonic would be a good idea!

Let's see, what else? Oh, I have vowed to ride my bike to work whenever possible in an effort to use less gasoline, lessen our nation's dependence on foreign oil, and basically save mankind and the planet. This week, I biked to work three times. It's about a 15 mile trek, roundtrip, so I saved about a gallon of gasoline. I encourage everyone I know to use less gas. Drive a hybrid car, walk, run, bike, take mass transit, etc., there are so many little things we can do to make the world cleaner, greener, and a tad less warm.

Maybe that's a good place to stop, no? I need to finish reading a script for an audition I have tomorrow.

Next time, I'll tell you all about my house that I'm renovating and how not fun it is to live without a stove for six months. And I'll share an anecdote about the torrid love affair I'm having with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).
