“Keep the Party Moving”

27 Aug

I feel a little guilty…like we met, I got your number, and I never called. But here’s the thing. I was nervous! And it was totally not you, it was ME. Promise.

Wanna’ know what this is all about? Well now I can finally tell you (and maybe you’ll understand what this post was about…) A show that I filmed back in February called “Keep the Party Moving” just aired tonight on Style Network. It’s a reality TV pilot that follows 4 friends as they compete against one another to throw the best course in a progressive dinner party.

Whaaaaaaa? I know. See, up until now I wasn’t sure I was proud of how it all turned out. I did my best, put my heart into it, and felt more than a little disenfranchised when all was said and done. But you know what, I’m okay. Not great, but okay. Mainly because they called me a “Chicken -Loving, Tattooed Martha Stewart”, to which I say HELL YES PLEASE! That’s about everything I’ve ever hoped to be in this lifetime.

I could launch into a whole monologue about how I felt going into it (freaking awesome), how I felt during (freaking exhausted), and how I felt afterward (freaking floored), but I won’t. Instead, I’m going to tell you that you should watch it for yourself on Style Network this week. It’s airing tonight, tomorrow, three times the next day, twice on Friday…you get the idea. This show is the pilot for a new series, so apparently they’re testing the waters or something. I dunno. TV speak.

Anyway, the point is I was drained and paralyzed by the whole thing. Sadly, it sucked out all of my creative energy, and I had none left for blogging. I did, however, plant a new garden (thanks hubby!) and harvest about a hundred tomatoes since I last posted. So all in all I’m doing great.

Conclusion: I’m back. I just needed to see how this all would flesh out – and you know, I’ve decided it’s going to be okay.

So if you do end up watching the show, give me a shout out and let me know if you agree that my food kicked A$$. Aw shoot, who am I kidding, you know I’m posting those recipes for y’all anyway, baby!
