Dec swung by after his day gig today – said “hey – got any plans tonight?” – “nope” – want to help me with striking some lights? “Sure”…
So we spent a couple of hours at the Los Angeles Theater in downtown, on Broadway. They had a screening of Rebel Without a Cause, and then Dec’s peeps were helping pull the cables and lights that they used for the special presenters.
Great old theater – Doug, lead guy, seemed to know quite a bit about the theater. Bobby was his extra hand, while I – as always – tried to help out the Declan.
Things went well – the second or third thing I did was help move some plywood covering the cables that ran along the edge of the stage – promptly pulled up on a piece of wood with a scree sticking through – yay! Blood!
Have to say it was good to do some honest manual labor, work up a sweat, feel like puking, and then enjoy the brisk air on the ride home.
Now I sit here – semi-tired, thinking of how to get my adobe software from the other lappytoppy to this one, tivo’ing ‘passenger 57’ – and admiring Blue’s ability to wrap herself up into a doughnut and go to sleep right next to me…
I had planned on hopping on the motobike and running around a bit tomorrow – we’ll have to see how the morning happens.
