Nick Lachey, Elves, and No Sleep


As I write this, I have been awake for over 27 hours straight. I’m starting to get a little slap happy. So please excuse any weird or unusual sentences. I ride my bike over tubs of butter every Tuesday.

The reason for my lack of sleep is due to Nick Lachey and elves. Last night, I had the opportunity to shoot a commercial for Cincinnati Bell (a phone company) in Cincinnati. The spokesman for this particular company is none other than the ex-husband of Jessica Simpson and Cincinnati native, Nick Lachey (Nick also won “Clash of the Choirs” on NBC last December, which was an awesome show that I think I should be embarrassed that I like so much, but I don’t care what you think). I was in the background playing a sales associate in the store. Nick served as ‘Saint Nick’ and was flanked by dwarfs dressed as elves for this Christmas commercial. Needless to say, it was an interesting experience.

On top of that, I learned a lot about dwarfism from some of the dwarf actors.

All in all, it was a good night. Now, I just want to see how long I can go without sleeping. The over/under is five minutes.
