It’s over!

Famine MovieWorldvision Famine 2004 is over!
Thanks to everyone who supported me and donated this year. The hunger itself was pretty manageable, but I didn’t expect the massive headache that went along with it. My various food addictions are stronger than I thought! I made the mistake of having a big night out with my co-workers Friday night and then I stayed up way too late watching the royal wedding. Hangovers are hard to dispel without a good greasy fry-up (especially when your better half is eating one in front of you). Saturday night was the worst. Sunday morning I felt pretty good, actually, but by the time 3:00 rolled around I was literally drooling. We headed to Glebe and ended up at Cafe Otto, where my plan to eat spaghetti faded in the face of their massive hamburgers (complete with beetroot, bacon, and a fried egg). It was positively orgasmic. Anyway, the Snook helped me make a little film to document the whole Famine experience. You can download it here (6 MB – Quicktime). I don’t know if it’s just lingering starvation euphoria but I think it’s the funniest thing ever. Enjoy!

PS – What’s up with me and the ‘thumbs-up’? I do it in every shot! I really had no idea. Do I do that all the time? It makes me look like an idiot!

  1. That video is terrific; very entertaining. Congratulations on making it through!

    That video was worth much more than the small donation; you don’t need to spend the postage on the crafty thank you gift.

    PS – I think it’s probably the camera that brings out the thumbs-up; it’s probably not a normal occurance.

  2. That video. Is freaking. PRICELESS! Tricia’s right, babe. That was WELL WORTH the donation. I have to say, my favorite part was the Snook eating in front of you. Although, I’m not sure if he was smirking because the camera was on him, or if it was a “Hee hee, I’m eating in front of you – jealous?” kinda smirk.

  3. 🙂 The grin you made just before tucking into the burger was the best moment for me…made me laugh.

    Did you have a food orgasm when you bit in?


  4. The best part was definitely you watching the Snook have breakfast, but the whole thing was entertaining enough to warrant a big Two Thumbs Up. 🙂

    And of course well done on completing the fast.

  5. bloody brilliant! I loved at the end how you didn’t use the napkin to get that piece of stray food off of your wrist, you just licked that bad boy up.
    Good job Kris.

  6. Congrats, Kris! That final shot, the slo-mo first bite especially, was wonderful!

  7. Thanks guys! It’s funny seeing yourself in slow-motion. You catch yourself doing things that you don’t remember. I seriously didn’t intend that little grin at the Snook, nor the oh-my-god-this-is-good eye roll after the first bite. But there they are! They make me laugh my ass off.

    And just because a couple folks here at work have asked, no, Rodd wasn’t torturing me with the breakfast. I had the idea for that scene on Friday and he just went along with it. I think he’s just grinning because I’m filming him and he felt like a dork. 🙂

  8. Well done! I like the video too. That Snook is a meanie!

  9. I laughed so hard when I watched the video as well! I agree with everyone else, Snook eating in front of you was sooo funny. kudos to you on the video and finishing the fast.
