I was sitting at my computer today furiously creating new recipes and minding my own business when my cell phone rings. Now on a Friday afternoon at 3:30 after a long cook day, chances are it's a friend asking me to share a couple (OK quite a few) libations.
"Hi, this is Debbie"
"Hi, this is Brandon from Bravo TV"
Yeah right, I think to myself. It's one of my many friends who think their funny. And most of the time they're not!
"Hi Brandon. What can I do for you?"
"We're discussing a show about personal/private chefs and the trials and tribulations of cooking every day, all day, dealing with clients and their food quarks, etc.. Can we talk a minute?"
I'm jumping up and down so fast my teeth start rattling.
"Of course" the calm marketer in me said.
He explained what he's looking for and what he hopes I can provide for him. Needless to say, I agreed that, of course, what he wants is absolutely no problem. I only have a full cook week with several evening commitments. Who needs sleep as long as there are libations?
YIKES! Now in addition to my normal (crazy) cook week, I have to find somebody to help me film a video in a very short timeframe (as in let's film this bad boy on Tuesday and Wednesday), edit on Thursday and have it in overnight delivery for Friday. No problem.
Double YIKES! Thank Bacchus I have a good bottle of red at my fingertips.
