Two Words: Vomit Rehearsal !

Spent Four hours playing with the actors, Sm's and the Director.... and vomit.
We were told that there was a vegetarian, dehydrated, pea soup that makes excellent vomit for this trick. It's true, it does. Here's what I have found, however. It must be strained through a rather small strainer, at least three times. There is a LOT of floating... Um,.... fiber. It has the consistency of paper pulp. and like paper pulp is tends to clog up anything it catches on. The other 'Ick' Factor? It has an added smoke flavor, somewhere between good bacon and bad beefy jerky. I would like to point out, as a side note, just how Ironic it is that Vegetarian pea soup smells like bacon. If you have to make it smell like bacon to get someone to eat it, well... you get my point.
Discovered a lot of interesting thing about pnuematically actuated hydraulic systems. Things like, the lower the puke level in the holding tank the more volume of air it takes to pressurize the system to the point of..... expellation <?> Anyway, lot's of fun < other than smelling like I just cooked, or wallowed, in a ton of bacon> and the Actors were troupers ! Sitting through a 4 hour rehearsal in pea soup damp clothes, get 'puke' in their face, up their nose, in their mouth and in their eyes and mostly just laughing about it. More later.
