Monday’s filming took place at a restaurant…
…but I still had to make my own breakfast from an electric kettle:
I love prop menus!
It’d be fun to design one, but not worry about actually making anything on it.
Four hours into filming I snacked on a Sweet and Salty Almond Granola Bar
When we broke for lunch two hours later I was SO READY to chow!
The producers know I love my veggies, so they ordered an avocado salad from Pancho Villa Taqueria especially for me
I ate it with some burrito, because how can you be in The Mission and NOT eat one?!? This was the tofu ranchero with beans + rice
Chips + fresh fresh salsa
We also had our own personal ice cream man!
I enjoyed a coconut bar for dessert
When we finally wrapped I had to rush back to my hotel to put myself on tape for a movie audition. This lovely package was waiting in my room!!!
Their mail-order gift baskets arrive beautifully packaged, in a crate designed to have little impact on the environment (made from trees that would normally be burned)
Of course, I will bring them to share with everyone today, but I couldn’t help but sample the goods last night, with some miso soup
Longtime readers know how I love my dried fruit…
….and this stuff is probably among the best I’ve ever had – the perfect amount of sweetness and chew – all without added sugars or preservatives. I’m particularly smitten with their persimmons
Having a blast in San Fran, but of course I am missing Abe, Julius, and the Wednesday, May 4th at 7pm before the feature “Seesaw.”
I didn’t get to party with him, but my buddy Phil (a.k.a. Angry Asian Man) just celebrated his blog’s 10th anniversary through the festival, and here’s the video a bunch of us put together for him (even Julius made the cut – we’re somewhere around the 4 minute mark):
