I did something new today.
I participated in a "Live Studio Audience" at a filming! This was actually for work and I was super excited to see it all happen. I've never been to a taping of anything, so even a retirement readiness seminar was intriguing to me. We arrived at the studios this morning to find this fun trompe l'oeil! Can you see the "people" looking over the "balcony"? It really doesn't take much to impress me.
We found our soundstage and entered. It was full of neat props including a giant Oscar statue (like the kind they have on the red carpet at the Academy Awards) and a model ship. I knew they wouldn't be using anything THAT neat in our presentation, but still.
Do you remember the show, Walker Texas Ranger? Anyone? Well, it was filmed here. And T.O. and I jumped at the change to have our pic snapped at the cantina from the show.
The actual filming was pretty interesting too. The panel was very professional and got most everything in only one take. I was amazed. Whenever I have to record anything - short on-line voice overs - my mouth dries up and I lose the ability to form complete sentences. Which is funny since I basically public speak as my job. Something about being recorded for all time ooges me out. But they did a great job! At the end, the filmed the live audience (us!) for about 5 minutes straight (if felt like a lifetime) making concerned faces, smiling faces, agreement faces, good idea faces, I hadn't thought of that faces and so on. Then we were filmed clapping a few times. And finally, laughing. I doubt any of my "faces" will ever make it on screen but it was a really cool experience.
Tonight, I headed to yoga as part of my 7 day Yoga Challenge. Today was Day 5. And I received my PINK foundation bracelet for my 25th class. I'm really digging this every day challenge. Since I'm going to classes I wouldn't normally attend, I'm getting exposed to other instructors. They are all great, but I learn something new from each of them with their different teaching styles and approach.
As I type this I'm eating a frozen pizza (well, it's cooked now) labeled "Artichoke Heart and Pesto." Hrmph. There were a FEW little bits of artichoke heart (which I adore, that's why I bought the za) but mostly capers (ew) and onion. I like onion, but I really don't count that as a veggie on a veggie pizza. Not one black olive to speak off. So sad. Oh well, at only 330 calories for 1/3 of the pretty big pizza, I'm still getting a delicious dinner. Even without my beloved artichoke hearts!
Hope your Wednesday was full of artichoke hearts (or other things YOU love!)
