Good Times… Unless You’re A Guinea Pig
So today happens to be my birthday… which I’m sort of ignoring, but still was kind of nice. Talked to some people I haven’t heard from in a while and got a prospective new project that sounds like a good, fun one. So that all made it a pretty good day if you’re me or one of my pet guinea pigs… they got a big old salad this morning for breakfast. YES I have guinea pigs as pets. It’s kind of ridiculous, but they’re kinda cool in their own right. And since I’ve moved, I have the perfect place for a dog and a pretty good situation for one, so I’m working on finding the right one to adopt. But back to the point… here’s some pictures of my little pig friends:
And that brings me to yesterday’s events… I did a little (grueling) work on a Travel Channel Promo shoot for Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern – you know, the one where he travels around the world putting things in his mouth that our mothers yelled at us and slapped our hands for when we were little tykes. Are you making the connection yet? What was one of the main courses for the promo?
The set was in Downtown LA and while I, as well as many of the passersby that saw the street vendor cart with fried guinea pigs on sticks, were fairly disgusted… I do have to say that seeing the sun rise over the tallest buildings in LA was an awesome sight and the whole thing was kinda cool.
