Kato Drinks Sprite?
Once again, my weekend begins with a night at youth group. Only this time, there’s a twist. The activities coordinator decides that it’s a good idea to have a pie eating contest – more specifically, pumpkin pie slathered with whip cream. Oh yeah, it’s a 12-year-old girl versus an 11-year-old boy. For you competitive types, the girl won, which was hilarious. The fun really began when they decided to try to mash what was left of the pies into peoples’ faces. Now, the girl may have won, but she’s 12, so there’s still over half the pie left. Long story short, I end up getting nailed with pre-chewed pie mixed with liquidy whip cream. Awesome. It got all inside my ear. INSIDE.
The next day is a little less mortifying as I have to take care of a warranty issue with my car before heading out to the gym. As an aside, I have been dealing with a shoulder issue for a while now which has slowed me down, but it’s almost completely rehabbed. I’ve incorporated more fat burning exercises to take advantage of my less vigorous routine, so that will be one less hurdle to jump once my calorie count goes through the roof again. I stop by a small group at church before heading for an early night because I have to get up at 4 the next morning to work on my Sprite commercial.
For those who don’t know, Jay Chou is the Michael Jackson of Asia. He’s a hugely popular musician from Taiwan who’s beginning to make a splash in the western hemisphere. He’s cast as the new Kato, originally played by Bruce Lee, in the upcoming Green Hornet movie. Sunday just happened to be the day I got to work with the Asian superstar on a Sprite commercial at Universal Studios. Jay is actually quite shy, at least on this day, but it was great working with him. There’s nothing diva about him, and that’s to be admired. He actually thought America was a little boring because everything closes so early. I miss the night markets too, Jay Chou.
