Lucky for me, McCarran airport in Las Vegas has free WiFi, or else I fear my resolution/experiment would have experienced its first pitfall. I’m at the airport pretty early, so after playing some slots I’ve decided to save the rest of my money and write instead.
Today we did spots for Banana Pudding Shakes. Yup. Generally, I don’t like anything banana-flaovered, though I do like banana and banana bread. And actual banana pudding can be ok, thanks in large part to the vanilla wafers and whipped cream if present. This was probably the first food that I just didn’t really like, but fortunately it was also easy not to eat. This isn’t to say that the Banana Pudding Shake isn’t good; other people on set really enjoyed it. Really. I’m not just saying that. Please try it when it comes out.
So I’m now waiting for my delayed flight home, which will get me into Chicago around midnight. I go back to my shows at Second City tomorrow night for the first time in over a week, and I have to say I’m really looking forward to it. I think it’s important to take breaks from the show, not only to rest and enjoy a change of pace for a few days, but also to remember that you love what you do and the people who do the same thing as you. Aw shucks.
I wish I had more to write, because that Kenny Rogers’ Gambler slot machine is really calling my name.
