Unfortunately, I Really Am That Nerdy

Y'know, I knew it was going to be a tough day when the schedule for setting up the light cues for Fiddler On The roof was from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM, but I expected a dinner break as well as a lunch break (I do poorly not eating for nine hours straight) and, for that matter, to actually leave at 10:00, rather than 11:15.

Oh, and we have to come in at 9:00 AM tomorrow, with a probable departure time of midnight. So much for studying for Monday's midterm exams.

This is a class I'm taking pass-fail because I'm really going to suck at the final (it requires artistic skill). I did not plan for it to completely uproot my studying for a weekend. If I was arriving later tomorrow and I'd gotten to eat dinner, I'd at least have a few hours of study time.

As it is, I'm going to sleep in my clothing because I won't have time to get dressed in the morning, really.

... Ouch.

Best of luck at not becoming too sleep-deprived and at keeping up with your classes without it eating all of your time awake (or for sleeping) that's left (and on your exam tomorrow).

You know, if you'd said anything about this earlier, I could've told you how stage crew work expands to fill all available time, and then some. After all, I was only a techie for five years, middle and high school.

Sometimes it pays to do research before getting in over your head.

(No, I'm still not terribly happy about anything, thanks ever so much for your concern.)

I am extremely offended that you are taking personal offense at me for my not being available. You are not the only person I have been unable to reach during midterms and a generally heavy load this semester.

Perhaps not. As you reserve the prerogative to be angry with me for not being available during campus-wide Internet outages and insanely heavy homework assignments (Fiddler On The Roof I can deal with fine, it's Applied Ethics and its weekly 5-page single-spaced paper), I reserve the prerogative to remain offended at you for falsely accusing me of intentionally abandoning you.

You're doing Fiddler? Is your fiddler going to really be on the roof or will it be an updated rendition of the not-quite-so-popular Fiddler on the Floor?

He's on the roof of our double-sided "house" set, eleven feet off the unpadded stage floor with an 18-inch standing area, no safety belt, and he has to play it while it's being wheeled offstage and the lighting cues are going dramatic.

I did that gig eight years ago... add three more feet atop a Really Tall and Rickety Wooden Ladder (just behind the 'roof' of the set...
