I've gotten in the habit of naturally waking up around 6:30 in the morning for school, and unfortunately did so this Saturday morning, although I didn't have much of a choice as I had to get to Hollywood and Highland to work at the Academy Awards. I recently got hired at Special Events which staffs catering events for big corps like Nestle and chefs like Wolfgang Puck. It's a really neat job and a heck of a lot of work! All the running, lifting, smiling and busing is madness. Today we served lunch for about 1,000 really hungry production crew members. It was a lot of fun; the events are exciting but the people I work with make it all the more enjoyable. Now I'm mentally and physically exhausted, and I have to rest up for tomorrow where I'll be serving for stars at the Oscars!
What made my day--one of my best friends, Catherine threw a tea party at Frills Vintage Tea Parlour in Downtown Monrovia. The ambiance had an old-fashioned feel that made being there surreal even though the service was run by teenagers who were smiley and very helpful. We had an assorted array of tea--roseberry, chocolate, vanilla chai, passion fruit and mango, and chocolate chip scones, fruit and yogurt, and cute little tea sandwiches. To get the full tea-party experience I challenged the party go-ers to sit with perfect posture, drink with their pinkies pointed out and talk only with a British accent. We all failed.
