Day 12: Jan 13

Crazy day-

Got in later than usual due to a morning hair appointment. Warned him ahead of time.

At first, he didn’t have anything for me, so I kinda stood around.

Then he sent me to get snacks for us.

Then I stood in front of the copier for a while, getting things prepared for tomorrow’s big Board meeting. Copied, collated, organized things for the meeting.

Watch part of Fela! a live simulcast from the NT in London at the end of the day. Not too bad, I thought it was better than it really was.


Day 10:Jan 11

(Still working on Jan 9th’s entry….)

I’m begining to dread it when he opens MS Spreadsheet to show me what exactly he wants.

I worked on spreadsheets, then was requested by the box office manager to go re-fill the outside brocure things, which at that point, I didn’t mind a break from spreadsheets.

Favorite moment of the day:

We had a rental real estate meeting thing in the morning, and they left the theatre a mess. Our¬†executive¬†director went up there to see if it needed cleaning. Well, he went up to the booth to call us and tell us (the box office manager, me, and the business manager) it was a¬†train wreck. Our box office manager was on the phone with a customer, Business manger was away from her desk, and I didn’t know whether it was an outside call or if it was one of the light/sound guys wanting Chuck for something, so I let it ring. Finally, our box office manager gets off the phone, and Chuck gets a hold of us. Peter (BO manager) takes the call, gets off it and says “He’s lost patience with us, but you know how he is-it’ll be a joke when he gets down here.” And it¬†certainly¬†was a joke. Chuck reenters the office, and goes-“what’d you all do-have your phones on do not disturb?”. And we all told him the truth-Peter was on the phone, Robin not there, and me not knowing what to do with it, then jokingly told him, “No, we saw it was you and knew better than to answer.”

Day 8: January 8

Two show day. A NY Met simulcast  in the early after noon and a band called Jefferey Broussard and the Creole Cowboys in the evening.

  • Arrived about 12 pm, Chuck asked me to fix a couple of things on the spreadsheet that I had been working on endlessly since starting. Did that. no problems.
  • He showed me how to start a live simulcast from the booth for the MET show. Then I hung out in the booth, watching the show and unstuffing envelopes for the box office manager.
  • After the simulcast, we started setting up for the band in the evening.
  • Got the evening show started, and then proceeded to watch from the booth.

Day 7: January 7

More spreadsheets!

More time on the phone with The Days Inn of OS!

YAY. Super excited. (sense the sarcasm??? ;))

And I sat in an hour and a half development committee meeting. Well, it felt like one and half hours. Many things were discussed. I was only half listening as my medicine for my cold that I had taken earlier in the day had worn off.

Day 6: January 6

I am begining to despise the following:
  • The Days Inn of Old Saybrook, who keep messing up the reservations that I’ve made
  • MS Word Spreadsheets

Yep-If you guessed I spent my day working with spreadsheets and on the phone with the Days Inn in OS, you guessed correctly. I also made copies of a file for him.

Show tomorrow night-a band called NewFound Road-Chuck said he didn’t really need me for it, but if I wanted to stay, I was welcome to and he would find something to amuse me. ¬†I¬†told¬†him if the roads were okay and if I wasn’t exhausted and was feeling okay, I might stick around.
