Quite A Week!

  This is how my week as been going: Wednesday night, I took part in a karaoke semi-finals competition.  I had gotten a place in the semi-finals by singing the previous week.  Anyway, the judges didn't seem to be overly-enamored with my performance.  A good friend of mine, however, did win so I was really proud of her.  Then on Thursday night, I performed a stand-up comedy routine for open mic night at Laff's Comedy Caffe.  I decided to just do a compilation of one-liners.  I got some good laughs so it was quite fun.
  Friday night, I attended the world premier of the horror flick, 'Truth or Dare'.  Let me tell you, that is one sick movie!  They handed out complimentary vomit bags in case anyone had to use them during the course of this study in cruelty and torture.  I walked into the theatre and the producer/screenwriter calls out, "Paul, how's it going?"  I was a little embarrassed because I didn't remember his name off hand.  I'm better with faces than names, as those of you who know me may recall.  Anyway, I also got to meet the director/star of the film and a couple of the other actors.  The director told me that if they ever need any Chinese actors, they'll keep me in mind.  After the movie, there was a question and answer session.  Telling you what question I asked, would be a spoiler for the ending of the movie so I will refrain.
  I saw a posting on Facebook that the show, 'Worst Cooks In America' is looking for contestants.  Unfortunately, shooting takes place from October through December, which completely cuts into my schooling.  Oh well, maybe next season.
  Saturday, I will be auditioning for a role in another western that will be filming at Old Tucson Studios.  They are looking for Chinese actors in particular.  Other than any non-half-Korean Chinese actors out there, I'm as Chinese as they get!  The advertisement for the audition said to dress in period garb.  I've got my gray Kung Fu robe all nice and clean in preparation to woo the producers.  Filming will start in November.  I'll have to ask them about their shooting schedule because, just as with 'Worst Cooks In America', I won't be able to shoot if I have school.
  Sunday, I will be attending the Arizona Insect festival which is hosted by the University of Arizona's Department of Entomology.  I went to one of those years ago and it was quite fascinating! They had an entire spread of foods which incorporated edible insects.  There was bread with meal worms baked right into it.  I had some sushi rolls with beetle larvae in them, some with honey bees in them.  It was so long ago that I don't remember what else there was, but I can tell you I'm quite excited about this.  I've been looking forward to it for months!  You know me and food.  Anyway, as you can see, this has been and continues to be the busiest week I've had in a really long time.  Hopefully, things will slow down in the weeks to come and I'll mostly have only school to worry about.  What a fun week, though, huh?
