Went caroling with Random Chants last Thursday, and we ended up at the Green Tomato II in Davis (former site of Boloco, O'Natural's, Carberry, and I forget what all else.) They gave us free meatballs, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, pasta, and garlic bread. I had about 4 helpings of the eggplant -- and I don't like eggplant. The owner seems really nice, and he's being great about helping out the Davis community, so please go there and try to keep them in business!
Saturday night we had our first hands-on foley rehearsal for the PMRP New Year's Eve Orpheum show
. I get to play with the jell-o, whee! And we came up with a really great new way to make the "great big squishy splat" noise the script calls for.
Yesterday Kerri and I went to the Bazaar Bizarre. We spent over half an hour waiting in line to get in, but it wasn't *too* cold out, and in addition to our own fabulous company we chatted with a fun Canadian woman in line behind us, who told us how her tramp stamp of a maple leaf has more than paid for itself in free beer. One we got in, we spent about 3 hours wandering around the 148 vendors. Wow. We both collected a huge stack of business cards for places we want to remember. I didn't buy much, just a set of ligature trading cards (it's a font geek thing), a masala chai-flavored lip balm
(which smells so amazing I wish I had someone to kiss!), and a small button as a gift for a friend. Oh, and we got to see the fabulous missmhart
shilling for the Derby Dames. I'm really hoping to make it to her match on March 21, must mark my calendar now.
