A starbucks and two redbulls

The easiest way to comb through the last few days is to Tarentino it and go backwards.

With a sleepless night and coffee/two redbull day, I find that caffine has become a short term fiend to me.

The video has come a long way and we called in some help to sift through all the video of meatloaf and wizard of oz that our musical director has worked on in the past.

I woke up this morning not hung over from the night before. Sarah was gracious enough to let me sleep in her bed while she took the couch. I would not have minded the couch if it wasn't a love seat, but it was.

She took me to the train line that was preschool to the manhatten lines. I transfered lines and made it back on the bus from Boston to Manhatten. I met a harvard law student on the way back and enjoyed having an intellectual conversation about contract law and equity.

Having time to come home and go straight to work, I did not eat dinner and ate some fruit and a piece of pita to tide myself over.

Started work, edited video, drank a coffee at midnight after some amazing film footage was taken. Got a kosher dinner and left for home at 4ish. I remember falling asleep at 6 something.


Today was my day of production meetings and taping interviews. I won't go into depth about our innerworkings, but I called a lot of theaters.

The day flew by and it soon was Shabbos. My information about the ride from Manhatten to boston was incorrect and I did not learn this till late afternoon.

I deposited my check, got food, and took a cab during rush hour to past chelsea. Got to boston at 10:15 and meet up at a bar.

They had a mechanical bull in the middle of this night club, which made for constant drunken entertainment throughout the night.


Nothing special besides having dinner with emily and seeing her cats from back home (I mean the tabby type, not the friends kind). I really like her cats.

Act of God.

Sometimes you don't try for things

I feel as if I might be falling for someone. I told myself that this wasn't going to happen this soon, but it might have occured.

Do to issues I won't get into, I can't have exactly what I want. I am trying to figure out if what I want and what I need are the same thing.

As of now, the answer is yes.

Side note: My desk is the second image as it stands currently.

How would you like your water?

Boiled, tap, or bottled.

Only in NY.

The F train

So today I decided to go to church on sunday. Coney Island was my destination, but it got dark and I decided against that choice.
I also finished my book. That is part of the real reason for going back.

Explaining the below posts

This is what happens when you leave yourself logged into your boss's gmail account and he can't figure out why he's receiving your email.

I would delete the posts, but I find it humorous.

Jazz standard

So my house mate emily convinced me to go see the Maria Schieder Orchestra. It was worth it. The show was by far some of the best live jazz I've ever seen.

A new home

Things are well, and I am enjoying the guest house and the kitties.

I have a full time job now with a production company that will be mounting a show for Broadway by May 1.

I am content.

Kittens are cute

Especially when they are cleaning each other's ears.

I have learned that I truely have no conception of day. I just learned it was friday. Let me recap.

Monday - New Years Eve, balloon drop, champagne had by all
Tuesday - Unloaded truck for cash, 3 hour train, Prepared Portfolio, went into city
Wednesday - Had interview, hour and a half train, Loaded truck(s)
Thursday - Too cold to work, took nap, unloaded trucks, cartoons and finding a dvd
Friday - Rearranged stage, threw water bottles, swept, drank white zin from mini bottles, spent time with the family

It's fun to go camping in the winter. Sometimes 5 days feel like a month.

A Real Gem

Sometimes a cirque company owner has a few drinks and puts on an 80's prom dress on new years eve.

Notice the half full bottle of champagne? Yea, thats all him.

Days till I move: two.

Loading out Patchogue

We finally got everything out of Patchogue theatre in three box truck trips. We ended up not being able to work this morning because the wind chill was -3.

I am looking forward to hearing back about the powerpoint designer position with the company in upstate.

Days till I move: Three and counting.

Balloons everywhere

My new years consisted of the balloon drop at midnight and drinking champagne straght out of bottle.
