My First Photo Shoote
Can I just say that I absolutely hate taking pictures? I don't know why - it's not that I think I'm an ugly dude - I guess it's just that because the pictures NEVER come out right. Well, I spent about 5 hours today doing a photoshoot for promotional pics to use for the upcoming cooking show.
I worked with a great photographer. We took the pics in my apartment. What was cool was that he was cracking jokes and he encouraged me to put on some music. I started to blast my Smooth Jazz playlist on my itunes.
I think a lot of shots came out great...and there were a lot that were not so great. I'm getting sick - so I kept sneezing and scratching my eyes. If you look close enough you can see the redness in my eyes. My eyes also have this tired look. I think like after the 2nd hour I was DONE! But this dude had just finished on set. And you know what else - my right eye kept shutting all by itself - I don't know why my right eye is so damn retarded. I don't know how celebs and famous folks go through this stuff.
That was my Sunday. Oh - what's funny is that this was my first time meeting dude too - the photographer. How about we were talking about EVERYTHING. I mentioned where I grocery shopped - he mentioned he needed groceries - I told him I shop allll the way on the other side of town because they have great deals. He was down for the trip. So, guess what - not only did I take pics - but I also went grocery shopping - YAY!
That was my Sunday!
Saturday - I played cards all night long. That was only after I went to do a restaurant review. Yes - Inchicity.com sent me on my first restaurant review. My best friend and I had a chance to go to a South Shore Classic - The Parrot Cage. It's a restaurant and a school. All the folks working there are students in one discipline or another relative to culinary arts. Great - right? I have one hell of a review though. I'm going to write it soon - but it'll be posted on inchicity.com - not here. I'll keep you guys posted.
