Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

After a long weekend, more rain.

This holiday weekend was especially good to me since the antibiotics finally got the better of the upper respiratory infection and I managed to walk three steps without breaking into the horrible rasping cough (although I have to admit it was fun watching people scatter like cockroaches the second I started. One guy even got up and moved to a different seat in the movie theater despite my assuring him in between wheezes that it wasn’t contagious) I’ve had for what feels like forever.

Thankfully, it’s mostly gone now. I even managed to go for a bike ride Sunday and only had one coughing fit right after I accidentally inhaled a stray bug (that’ll teach it to mind it’s own business).

Good thing I got the ride in, too.  It’s supposed to rain for the rest of the week, which of course means the entire city has descended into a panic about wet Ugg boots and the local news is doing a feature about the horsemen spotted running across the sky somewhere in the San Fernando Valley. Or something.

In other happy news, I finally got my Axium tax paperwork – it was sent out by Avalon in an envelope from PAV (both Axium subsidiaries – guess they’re using up the office supplies that weren’t looted).

Which brings me to this years “How many W2 forms do you have?” contest:

W2 forms

The person with the most forms wins the can of champagne I managed to weasel out of drinking!

I have 17 this year, but I don’t count, of course.

    I’m in with 18

  2. geekhiker says:

    Glad to see you got the Axium paperwork!

    This town is freaking hilarious when it rains, what with the ensuing top-of-the-news-hour panic and all…

  3. JCW says:

    I’m so glad I didn’t get back into extra work until 2008…

    Although I don’t look forward to tracking all my W2s next year, at least I don’t have to contend with the prospect of a can of “Paris Hilton Special” arriving in my mail.

    Glad you’re beginning to feel better!

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better – don’t have a relapse trying to sort that paperwork out.

    Only 9 for 2007. EP didn’t send one, so I had to call them yesterday, and another one was sent twice, with a weird revision. Glad I didn’t do the taxes early, though a refund would be manna right about now. Hey, your cough -must- be going around. I sat a row away from a guy with the barkiest nasty cough when I finally saw “There Will Be Blood” on Sunday. Made the long quiet scenes interesting.

    11 – 1099s and 8 – W2s!!! Wait, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

  7. Mary Sue says:

    I had 4 W-2s, 1 1099-G and 1 1099-INV.

    Nowhere near beating you folks, but considering I’m in a different industry that’s theoretically more stable, it’s interesting.

    In a Dear God, I have to input every one of these damn things? kind of way.

  8. Scripty says:

    12 for me. And I was very happy to get my Axium/PAX/PAV W-2’s yesterday!

  9. Jon says:

    Yay! Just got my Axium w2, which takes me to 20!

  10. Proto says:

    Didn’t you have over twenty last year? Is this a sign of wandering less? No? May you have twenty six next year.

  11. Charli says:

    Good to hear your cough is better, that you got your paperwork, and that you freaked people out in the theater. It’s good to be you! I worked 1 1/2 last year, currently unemployed and just filed my tax stuff, government owes me money, love that.

  12. […] many W-2 forms do you have? Film grip Peggy Archer has 17… one of her own readers has […]

    Peggy sez: I just love you to bits, David. But I’m not a grip. I’m an electrician.
