The past I don’t know how long has consisted of 12 hour rigging days, which leave me so exhausted I can’t do anything other than shower and limp to bed (yup. Getting old), so today was going to be nice.
A day of doing first unit. On a stage. With air conditioning.
I love air conditioning.
About two hours into the day, the best boy asked me if I’d mind going to the other stage to work with the other unit, since they were short-handed.
Of course I didn’t mind. I’m paid the same no matter where I am, and the other stage had even better air conditioning.
I was actually cold.
It was fantastic.
As the day continued, it seemed to me that the other unit were going to have a longer day, so I might get a few more hours in the air conditioning before going back to my sweltering apartment, but when the first unit wrapped I was called to help them load the truck and then dismissed.
So I got eight hours, which is also nice. I figured I’d go for a swim and then go home and watch a movie on the streaming service of my choice.
Only to find my wi-fi DOA.
The hard line to the desktop works fine, but no wi-fi, so no Netflix, no Hulu, no news feed, nothing.
At least I can look at cat pictures on the internet until the tech gets here tomorrow at 5 pm to fix it.
Tomorrow. At five fucking PM. And I was informed by the customer service agent I was lucky to get service that quickly.
At least I got to enjoy the cool air today.
