Bloggy McBloggerton

so i am in our "ready-to-rent" department now at work. which is good. i mean, it's trading in one set of frustrations for another, but at least i'll get my learn on down there. we basically quality check all the gear, give it minor adjustments and, well, get it ready to rent again (hence the name "ready-to-rent"). we checked panatapes and cinetapes today. (if you wanna know what they are, ask me -- you should know if you're into camera stuff). it's so funny how they put us in a cold, sunken, dungeon-like room, no windows, black paint on three of the four walls, and our only ventilation comes through this nasty, filth-covered screen. it's like they're encouraging us to go insane. the fools. we were insane way before they stuck us down there.

The Everlasting Bloggstopper

just so you know, i'm not a complete loser. the reason i'm always on here on friday nights is cuz i work late usually (lots of camera packages going out for weekend shoots and stuff) and it's too late to go home and get changed and then go back into hollywood or somewhere fun. ok. i am a complete loser. but i'm a complete loser that would totally be out having a blast if he weren't completely drained by 10:30pm on friday.

nobody's freaking reading these blogs of mine, so i guess i can write whatever the heck i want in here. i'm just gonna rant and trash talk about everybody i know. not really. i love you all too much. so i've figured out that one red bull equals about 2 hours of sleep for me. if i get 6 hours of sleep and have a red bull, i'm about as good as i am with 8 hours of sleep. if i only get 4 hours sleep and have 2 red bulls, i'm still about as good as i am with 8 hours -- but much more twitchy. i spazz a lot when i do that. and then a few hours after the red bulls comes the dreaded caffeine crash. some other people have tested this theory and pretty much agree with it. i haven't tried 2 hours and 3 red bulls yet. it's probably not good for you. have you noticed that all these energy drinks are chock-full of b vitamins? did you know that drinking alcohol depletes the body's b vitamins? our society is draining everyone's b vitamins by night and then selling them back to us the next day. the beer companies probably own all the energy drink companies, too. pretty tricky. have a blessed day, all.

More Bloggage

it just dawned on me that all my social awkwardness would be greatly alleviated if all communication in the world were via email. i am so much better at writing emails than i am at talking. talking in person is such an impure form of communication . . . there are too many distractions . . . like the other people standing in the room and the stuff they're saying that you can overhear . . . even talking on the phone sucks . . . especially if you're driving . . . or wishing you were doing something else or talking to someone else . . . now if you find yourself talking on the phone with me and realize i'm not paying attention, don't go thinking it's because i'm wishing i were talking to someone else . . . it's just 'cause i'm a space cadet . . . and i know i have A.D.D. or something. did anyone see that intro to the simpson's this past week where the shot keeps zooming out and out and out and you see the simpsons' house and then an aerial view of springfield and then the whole earth and then the solar system and then the galaxy and then the whole universe and then it turns out our universe is part of an atom which is part of a cell which is part of homer's brain and homer goes "coooooool." and then they play the rest of the simpsons theme and show the "created by" credits on their TV. anyway, i thought that was funny. i'm up too late again. red bull for breakfast tomorrow.

My First Adventure in Blogging

so i can't sleep because i am on a caffeine high. i usually don't drink caffeine late, but my friend and i were headed down to el segundo to hang out with some people and i thought maybe some caffeine would make me more fun to hang out with (it seldom does, but it's worth a try, right). so anyway, the people we went to hang out with down there were in fact, much to our dismay, not doing any hanging out . . . AND their not-hanging-out-ness was occurring in burbank, not el segundo, as we had been led to believe. had any hanging out occurred, i surely would have burned off my caffeine high much sooner and been ready for sleep by now. so now i find myself wanting to sleep, in the face of not being able to sleep, because this other friend is getting a "you rock the house" thing tomorrow at the 9am service and i was supposed to go and support her and clap and scream and act all boisterous when they tell her that she rocks the house. i suppose i will try to do that still -- only on 6 hours of sleep, i totally won't be as convincing as i am on 8. but maybe 6 hours sleep and a red bull will at least resemble 8 hours sleep . . . or 5 and a half hours and an acai supercharger . . . or something. it's fun being addicted to substances. i can't believe caffeine is legal, really. ooh yeah, there it is. i'm crashing. time for bed. caffeine crash. i love it.
