Day off

Last night

It was a fun theme.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Somehow drinking from the keg got me a little drunk tonight. They said it was root beer.

Woo, biker bar theme.

The last 4 days

I will sum up the last four days quickly, because I just finished work and need to go relax a little before something else crazy happens.

Monday - Enjoyed pizza and conversation with my coworkers. We all decided that this show is going to broadway at some point, just not sure when.

Tuesday - CHOWDER NIGHT. Shots and a live band at the local bar. Realized that you learn a lot about the company's history when everyone that works with you has been drinking.

Wednesday - Oksana hurt her ankle, but the show must go on. Watched 2 1/2 hours of the Office. That show is amazing.

Today - Oksana is still hurt. Everyone in the office is going crazy trying to figure things out. I am going to go for a walk at some point and enjoy the sunset because it is the end of my day.

I am exausted after a day of working my ass off.

Time to sleep.

One show done

Show one accomplished.

Show two, waiting...

Less than 37 minutes in Act II with newly cut scenes. Thank you God.

Alarm

I think I hit the snooze button at least 7 times this morning. I'm glad my roommate is a heavy sleeper. I'm also finding out that john at Jim's deli is one of the most accommodating food people that I have met since I got out there. He always seems to know exactly what we are missing or needing.

I also have realized that everyone seems to know everyone through some random channel of working a tour, at a university, or through some party they attended.

Three more days of spot op-ing, then I will be back to company management intern land till change over or someone else needs to be replaced.

Lastly, we are having an office party tonight. I will be there with coffee mug in hand to enjoy the delicious dishes. I will make a point to not use the phrase, which has been burned into my head 'Cheers to the beers'.

bam!

show - done

celebratory drink - done

Waking up at 8:30 to work all day tomorrow - in progress

tired

I enjoy my job, but I did not get enough sleep last night to be wide awake today.

I did get breakfast/lunch and get to basically sit around and play with flashlights during the rehearsal. I think that this job has made me somewhat humble and I appreciate not being on the top of the food chain for once in a long time.

We get another intern to shadow spot #1 tonight and its press night. Nothing like training in new people.

Oh yea, and there is wine and cheese tonight.

Its raining

I decided to actually wear stage blacks. We are doing a rehearsal from noon to five, and I get to sit upstairs and play with flashlights again.

Show at 8, woot.

Cripple fight

One of the carpenters that was also a spot light operator happened to fall on stage (considering its all ice) and gashed open his knee with 8 deep stiches. He is now on crutches.

So now, I get to be Mr. New Spot op.

I really don't mind it, but it is somewhat entertaining have to spot an ice skater when you can't see the light. Damn colorblind genetics.

I am looking forward to the party tonight because I get to bartend till everyone gets their fill and I will be getting hit while serving. Yay free booze.

Its hard out here for an intern. No, actually, not really at all.

Day 2

After a long day of laying down carpet and driving to the airport once today, I get to drive out to JFK international and pick someone up at midnight. I cannot complain because I got a delicious dinner and my boss drew a heart around my name on my resume while they were interviewing me by phone.

I heart my job and the people I am working with.

My first day

I woke up at 10:00 AM this morning to the alarm in the next room. I laid in bed till about 11:30, then I got the strength to get up and eat some apple sauce. Washed it down with an energy drink and was 10 minutes early to work.

I proceeded to sit in a chair hearing the history of gateway through a flurry of names and events. It was a bit overwhelming, but I basically followed her train of thought. I then went to drop off a food order with Erin's assistant. We talked on the car ride and showed me the basics of the town: the bar, deli, and theatre in the next town.

A sandwich and a drink were $11 even. I will be making my food on my own for now. I also got my palm pilot working, and am now able to digitize everything I need to do. My day planner is scheduled out through Wednesday.

We proceeded to get back and I ended up unpacking much of my room: Nintendo wii, clothes, and a few bottles. It makes me think of being back in the boy scouts, but with more drinking and less backpacks.

I made myself a dinner of rice, beans, and some special butter. It has been a good day/night of working. I feel as though I am going to enjoy working here a lot.

I am sitting at my desk currently with a PBR in hand while I am typing this.

Life is good. Lets see how this week goes.

The Gateway Playhouse

After my 20 odd hours of driving from Wisconsin to New York, I was greeted by the amazing company manager, erin and her assistant, AK.

I got a tour of the facilities and proceeded to be handed a beer or 3.

I feel as though its going to be a good summer.

Total Mayhem

Last night was a blast. Good times were had by all.

A good portion of the night was spent in the car because it was so damn cold outside, but it was fun. I will have pictures up within the week of the madness.

Little by little

I edited my video for 8 hours today, bringing the total time shot, captured, and edited to 23 hours in the last two weeks.

The following things have been accomplished in the last 2 days.:

The trebuchet can now fling a tennis ball 14'6".

My account paper is done.

I am about 2 hours away from finishing my photography project. I intend on developing another roll of film and playing in the dark room.

And...

I got my roommate assignment for the summer. He seems good spirited and nice.

much love.

One credit.

As I went to turn in my paper today for my Non-profit accounting paper, I came to the conclusion that all the accounting majors in my class are completely insane.

My paper was about 6 pages long with a diagram in it. The teacher said 'just set it on the stack'. She then pointed to a stack about 9 inches high worth of paper. They were bound and each was about 1-2 inches thick. What the hell? This is for a one credit class.

ONE!

I was already hungover, so I just gave her my paper and said 'Denise, I respect your time and feel that all that was not necessary. Please understand that when grading.'

She agreed and I left.
