So it's about time I get down to another blog!
If you know me (at all) you know that I do background work for movies (no big deal...).
My agent (thanks Maya!!!!) called me up last week to know if I wanted to do a little shoot at the PNE for Cats and Dogs 2. The selling point being I was going be riding on rides all night long!!!
Of course I said yes. I slept in a little on Wednesday and prepared for a night of crazy ride time!
Turned out the best ride I was on the first two nights were my very own two feet. Apart from walking around the midway and being asked if we wanted to go on a ride there was no actually riding happening for us. I guess what they didn't tell us was that 2nd unit covers all the non-ride shots Main unit isn't getting. I was bummed out!!!
THEN on Friday I lucked out and got on Main unit. Thrilled I volunteered to go on the Beach Party ride at 11PM.
- For those of you who don't know Beach Party is a ride that rocks back and forth while spinning round and round.
As soon as I sat down and they locked the seat my claustrophobia kicked in. I kept telling myself to breath and that the pain of the seat pressing against my shoulders was normal. The ride started and I had fun - until it was over and I panicking politely asked if I could get off.
I walked back to holding (the location where background stay when they are not being used) feeling fine until I got to crafty (location where all the food is set up) and for some reason smelled syrup. The syrupy smell set of my nausea and I thought I was going to puke. I ended up lying in holding until the end of the night which was around 6 AM.
I still felt sick all day Saturday.
This is my life without a gallbladder,
