Sorry it’s been awhile, but as I’ve said before, I hate to write stuff just to write it. Unless you’re willing to read stuff just to read it. In that case, this will work out well.
Not a lot of news to report, although technically I had another celebrity incident Monday night. This one involved MadTV’s Stephnie Weir, who I knew before she became a celebrity, so I don’t really count it. Not that she isn’t a celebrity, but I’m able to have conversation with her without choking on pre-vomit, so she’s in a different category. Anyway, she’s in the suburbs filming a movie, and came to IO for Armando on Monday night. She did the monologues, and was great, but I would have prefered if she’d played because she’s a terrific improviser. Another time, perhaps.
Yesterday I did a bizco (corporate branch of Second City) for Kraft; they were having some sort of women’s summit, and we did a few scenes about problems women have in the work force. Now, I’m a woman, so I mean no insult by this, but I’m always amazed at how much women seem to enjoy getting together to talk about how hard it is to be a woman. I’m not saying there aren’t challenges, and I’m sure corporate America is a tough place for women (if the scenes we did are any indication, at least). I’m just saying it’s slightly fascinating. Slightly.
More importantly about this gig, there was a ton of packaged Kraft food for the taking. I loaded up my backpack with Planter’s peanuts, Ritz Chips, Snackwells, and Fig Newtons…all made by Kraft, I presume. But where was the macaroni & cheese? Come on Kraft, that’s what made you. Don’t pretend you don’t know that.
Oh, and word has come down that I’ll be doing another Sonic shoot in a few weeks, this time in Denver. I haven’t really talked much about the shoots in the past, mainly because it was when I was in cruise blog mode and it seemed off topic. So maybe this time around I’ll let you in on some of the behind-the-scenes magic. And by magic I mean eating. Stay tuned!
