As if I wasn't busy enough...

  Re: (...)
Well I got the official notice today. I have been accepted for the Cannes Film Festival in France.

I'm going to the French Rivera!! May 12th thru May 27th.

I am so excited and terrified at the same time. I hate traveling, as I don't travel very well. But I refuse to let that stop me

It's going to be a work fest to say the least. Our first orientation is May 12th at 8:30pm so I hope I arrive in time for that. Then it's 2 days at the winerys and farmers markets and then we start planning the meals.

They want us to bring recipe ideas, particulary ones that can be converted to serve 200+ with ease.

Feed me ideas folks

I think the funniest thing I have to bring with me is toilet paper There is no maid service thus no one to restock the ol tp. Hahaha

I'll post more later when I have more details.

I'm going to France!!!!!

Fantastic news! Talk about an opportunity of a lifetime! Just think about it, Denise. How many people in this country graduate from culinary school and find themselves going to Cannes???? You go girl!

I knew it, I just knew it! Way to go girl! Want me to send you a small pocket recorder so you could keep notes? That's what I had planned to do in NZ. It makes it easy to keep your memories fresh so you can write about them.

I'm so excited for you, it's almost like we're all going with you. Now I've got to tell all my friends! Just think, I knew you when!
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.
