Things I Love

So, I'm one of those odd ducks who really likes auditioning. I mean really. I liked interviewing whenever I was looking for a job, too, so it's not an acting-exclusive kind of thing.

I also love, love, love cooking. I love it enough to wear a paper hat and spend an entire day of vacation in a kitchen. (A longer story, but one of the best experiences of my life!)

Today I had an audition that, happily, combined two of the things I love most--acting and food! The audition was a Q&A, conversational thing. Really fun, actually. And in the process, I got to meet someone I otherwise probably wouldn't have and enjoy an interesting conversation about food and farms, brothers and sisters, divorce and reconciliation.

There are a lot of things I love about acting, but some of my favorites are the meeting new people, the working together toward a common goal and, yes, the auditioning. And craft service. I love craft service.
