Been busy and haven't hit too many stores up in the past week... All I've come home with was a skeet jacket. Interested in seeing how that does.
Food/bread comments: Tell me about it. I wish more places sold "bachelor" amounts of staple items such as bread/eggs. There's a Fogo de Chao down the street I've been planning on hitting up when I get a few bigger jobs going. I look forward to leaving there properly meat drunk.
Yesterday on set, a crew member also happened to own a Columbian style hotdog cart.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
All beef dog, crushed potato chips, bacon, catsup, mustard, pineapple sauce, cilantro sauce, pink sauce, and there's some mozzarella in there as well. Crikey. It was good. They also had a variant with chili but I just couldn't after two of the above. Oh and also had turkey and veggie dog options, but come on, really?
I remember how this experience felt like it was yesterday. Once when I was young, probably six or seven max, my parents attended a trade show at the Queen Mary (a ship converted into a hotel/event center with a well documented history of being haunted). My dad's company was an exhibitor there, so we got a nice room to stay in during the show. My parents had a few events they had to attend without me, so they had my babysitter come watch me in the room for a few hours here and there. One evening, we were watching tv and I got up to go grab a drink from across the room. I actually remember putting skittles in something like club soda to see if it'd make the drink tolerable to my young sensibilities. As I walked back across the room, I recall passing through a spot that was both much cooler and more dense. It felt strange and made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Like walking through something or someone. I got to the bed and my babysitter asked if I felt alright, I guess I went pale. I recall being pretty freaked out the rest of my stay there.
Tonight's location for the shoot I'm on is a really nice, really big used book/record shop. I feel this may end poorly for my wallet, thank god the shop will be closed.
