Amidst the backdrop of global financial insecurity, life goes on. Babies are born, people are dying and Sundays are filled with this seasons NFL Football games. As for me, like many, I feel like I'm working harder for less. C'est la vie.
Friday night, after a pathetic game of stiff the street magician, I hit the gym, then went out to visit Polly who was working on "Big Love". It was going to be a late night for all of them and I ended up visiting from about midnight to 2:30AM. They wrapped around 3AM. It was steak and lobster night at the studio and I ended up eating like a pig.
Interesting enough to note, the director of this episode was Michael Lehmann, Director of a little movie called Heathers. I love visiting set and seeing how it's all put together. It's a painstaking and tedious process of getting master shots, coverage, dealing with actors and fatigue plaguing every department. All for. . . you guessed it. . . your entertainment pleasure. I got to say the episode they were shooting was bizarre even by Mormon standards.
Saturday night was better. Deck sales, nonexistent, but I tried to bust it big in tips. Did pretty well considering the bleak financial reality that we're all dealing with. Nice crowd and a beautiful night. Sunday back to the bullshit, another trying evening.
Polly and I were able to spend some nice time together over the weekend, but it's Monday and back to the grindstone. The Hair Dept. Head needed to deal with a family emergency so, it looks like Polly is going to help out by working the next three weeks solid. Ouch.
