The Little Things

I’m glad to see that the grocery stores have pumpkins. Soon it’ll be time to scoop out the gooey guts and roast the seeds.

I really miss Tim’s Cascade Coney Island potato chips. Even though they’re not low-carb, I’d buy some if I ever found them. But I don’t think they make them anymore. They were the most awesome flavor — really mustardy, with just a hint of hot dog and grill char.

Sounds gross, probably. But oh so delicious.

I also miss Canada Dry’s lemon ginger ale. They used to make that back in the early 90s, and it was really good. *sigh*… now they just make cranberry ginger ale, which sounds icky.

I’ve found that PartyPoker, EmpirePoker and AbsolutePoker all have single table tournaments. So that’s how I’m blowing my fake money this afternoon. I’m consistently getting top half out of 10 entrants, but my goal is to improve that to at least top three every time.

My audition went, I think, well. I asked the director (whom I already know) to be sure to tell me if I sucked. After my monologue, she had a big smile and said, “you certainly don’t suck.” She gave me something to cold read as well, which only a couple of the other auditioners got to do. They’re going to call this evening, and callbacks are tomorrow. So we’ll see. But it’s nice to know I don’t suck. I did learn one thing — if you’re going to be in a sweaty, nervous situation, be sure to wear cotton. My polyester shirt, while very cool looking, kept the sweat trapped in, and I was very clammy when I got home.
