I’ve been going a million miles a minute for nearly a week, now. Here’s a quick recap of how I’ve been passing (or losing) my time. And since it’s Wednesday (hopefully it’s still Wednesday when I get this post up!) I’m linking up my recap with Laura over at Life With Lolo, for #HASHTAGHUMPDAY!
Once again, I’m hard at work editing the latest episode of Bourbon & Bordeaux. I love (learning) the editing process, but I’ve found that it has a tendency to suck entire days out of my life. Once I get into a groove, it’s hard to stop. I can go multiple days without doing any of my regular routine, I rely on chips (and other finger-foods) as meals so that I can eat while still using the computer, I skip blog posts… The end product is worth it, but there’s a level of guilt about everything else I don’t get done. #timesuckingvortex #getreadyforthenextepisode #labouroflove #Idontregretwearingpajamasallday
Late last week I offered to help out a friend by recording the raising of a sign. A company in Tampa was placing two large (approximately 40′ long) signs onto the north and south-facing facades of a corporate building. The first of the signs was supposed to be placed onto the top of the 10-story building at 11:00am. I had the camera in position by 10:30am. The crane that was to lift the sign malfunctioned before the supporting frame ever got off the truck. A technician was called out. The frame was halfway up the building when the crane malfunctioned for the second time. The technician was called again. The frame was put into position and one side was affixed to the building.
Then the sign company realized that they didn’t have the proper bolts. And, due to the recessed edge, were going to have to figure out another way to do things. No matter… because the crane malfunctioned. Again. The technician was called. The sign company actually told me to leave, that this could take “all day.”
Four hours of sitting in the middle of a field in the center of a corporate plaza and nothing to show for it. For the record: the sign did NOT get up that day. The second sign, scheduled to go up the following day, also didn’t quite make it up. #sixdaysstillnosign #noIdidnthaveanythingelsetodothatday #leftarmonlysunburn #weirdointhefield
