I had a meeting today with a producer about an up coming project. He suggested we meet in North Hollywood, at the Republic of Pie. I didn’t even know the place existed so I was happy to accept the invite. I ordered a cappuccino and the producer bought me a piece of their famous chocolate, carmel pecan pie. That pie was soooo damn GOOD! If he had asked while I was eating it, I probably would have agreed to do the project and be paid in pie. It was a lot of caffeine and sugar, and I may have talked too much during our meeting. However, I got the job so I think I was ok.
It was damn good pie! I kept saying to myself that I would save half and take it home, but that didn’t happen. It was so tasty! I felt so guilty towards the end, that I didn’t eat the crust and end of the pie. It made me feel like I was saving myself some calories. It also felt like a crime not to eat every last bite of such a delicious piece of pie and lick the plate (which is what I wanted to do). But I was trying to be professional and ladylike so I refrained. I probably won’t go to sleep until 2am, when I come down from my sugar and caffeine high. I can’t talk about the new project, except to say that the producer was gracious and kind. Plus, anyone who suggest a place like The Republic of Pie, is definitely worth working with.
