(In no particular order).
1. "Exhaustion" counts as an actual illness. That requires hospitalization. It's not just a condition of being that one has to suck up. For real. Unbelievable, isn't it?
2. Every year I would get to attend a string of events at which I would be nominated for awards and cheered by friend, foe, and stranger alike. Just for doing my job.
3. Free clothes.
4. Free food and drink.
5. If I were a super movie actor, I would only have to work like 3 months out of the year and I'd be a millionaire.
In a related thought, my favorite part of the Golden Globes last night was when Geena Davis said the thing about the little girl in her first party dress coming up to her and saying that her role on Commander in Chief has made the little girl want to grow up to be president, the camera flipped to a glowy and pregnant, angelic Gwyneth Paltrow with a saintly earth-mother smile of appreciation at the sweet story being told, and then Geena Davis revealed that she made it up. Mwahahaha!
(And yes, I realize that it's wrong of me to revel in any incident that makes a fool of Gwyneth Paltrow, but her very existence makes me feel like a total loser, and so thus, the schadenfreude.)
