I'm working Jerry's memorial next week, so that has involved a flurry of emails every day, plus getting things sorted and organized for Summer Conservatory. Thank god for kornopolous, he's been coming in to stuff and seal envelopes for a week which frees me up to do things like answer the phone and swear at the fax machine. Next week, I am going to roof-test that fax and sell tickets as a fund raiser, I swear.
The tour is almost at an end. The big thing right now is trying to figure out how to get 10 people There and Back Again using a van that seats 2 and a minivan that seats 7.
This week I saw Hitchhikers, like everyone else. I remember pieces of the books, but I am one of those geeks who only read them, heard the radio show and watched the TV series once, so I don't have strong memories of Exactly how the story is supposed to go. I enjoyed the movie. The opening credits alone were worth Mark's $9.50.
We saw Stage Beauty, thanks to Netflix. I think that might be the best film I've seen in a long time. It's really an actors' movie - it even made me want to get up there and act again. I loved some of the little touches, like a million-gillion pop-eyed little King Charles Spaniels running all over the Palace.
Oh yes, one more bit of work-related news;
I am insane.
My boss called me last night with one of those "Jaaaaaanet" voices....
Boss: "What are you doing this summer?"
<ghost_light: Ummm...working for ATY...
Boss: Are you going to be working hard?
ghost_light: (should have said "since you're asking..")
Boss: Because I have 3 people who want to offer you a night-job.
Yep, I have been sucked into the 4th Ave. Tourist show. I'm going to be their sweet little techie from 8-9:45 5 or 6 nights a week all summer long. There's even a rumour I'll be paid by the show. I figure that might help pay off some things and get me some WHAM for New York
That's about the news, the weather looks shitty.
