Carleton is awesome because he lets me use his computer to check my email! Hooray!! I'm hovered in the 'lectrician's office while the Stillborn Lover preview goes on above us. It has been a mostly good tech week (in spite of pesky actor notes). All went well, except for some general confusion about me having to screw a table to the floor. I will demonstrate. *ahem*
Matt (props boss): Go screw that table to the floor
*walks over to aforementioned table with screw gun to notice the 'lectricians moving it for space for a ladder*
Me: Oh! The 'lectricians must need to be here to focus and such.
Scenic Designer: Hey, go screw that table to the floor
Me: Um...I think the 'lectricians need that space.
Scenic Designer to Lighting Designer: Do you guys need this space?
Lighting Designer: Um, no...
Scenic Designer: Okay, go screw it down then
*walks over to move table back, angry 'lectricians say "No", walks back to prop shop*
Matt: Go screw that table into the floor.
Me: Um, the 'lectricians need the space.
Matt: Go wait for them to finish.
*walks back to main stage*
Me to 'lectricians: Um, when can I screw down this table?
Carleton: GO AWAY OR I WILL TAKE THAT SCREW GUN AND ATTACH THOSE HINGES TO YOUR EYES!! RAAAAAAAAAAARRR! (fire ensues)
*note, he didn't really say that, it was implied, I think.
*runs back to props shop in terror*
So, after much confusion, they decided that they really didn't want that table screwed down anyway. Yeesh! Confusion is okay, though, I suppose. All is well otherwise. We are having a Mardi Gras theme party after the show opening tomorrow, and I'm all excited because I get to make a mask. There really are a shortage of costumey, mask-ish holidays in the world. Anyway, I don't want to hog the puter too much, so I am off!
