XXX-hausted

So I know I was focused on the food that last post and all anybody really wants to hear about is my work. So here's about my work. It's very tiring.

Sunday we worked a regular day of setting up.

Monday we worked a regular day of setting up.

Tuesday things became a shitty mess and we worked about a 12 hour day of setting up with a follow up after dinner, then Lyle went to bed about midnight and was back at 5 am to meet the issue first thing in the morning. Why the frantic pressure? Oh yeah, the show opened at 9:30 Wednesday and the video screens were no where near correct.

Problem NOT solved, but done as best can be for the day, I met Lyle at 7 with coffee and we raced about like chicken with no heads. Very fast, very circular, very short runs.

At 11 we walked away and got breakfast. Waiting for Lyle outside, I was leaning against a post and finally learned that it is possible to fall asleep standing up. At 1 we got massages. Lyle went to bed after and I felt a manic surge of energy from no longer being in pain and went to... a mall!

Then it was back to the show, close the booth, wait for the video people to return to re-fix last nights problem. After dinner, another walk back to the booth around 10 pm and finally all is complete.

Lyle is in bed, and I am headed out to the opening night party at Rain at the Palm's Casino and hotel. It will be arduous work, but I will muddle through all the taxi ques, big boobs and fake people to be with some extremely fun people a free alcohol.

I truly do suffer.

Eeek, I didn't know it was possible to fall asleep standing up.

Well, I hope everything goes swimmingly from here on out.

YOU poor doll! All that hustle/bustle pre-booth bullshit. But the dining and clubbing sounds awesome!

Say "hello" to Storm for me...
