I just realized that I never followed up with any thoughts about the soot... So here goes. After the first couple of days things seemed to get better. I think my body just wasn't ready for the level of exertion required for 12 hour days. Over all it was a really good experience, and I hopefully made some good contacts. The hardest thing, besides the hours, was trying to keep up with all the lingo. My first rule is to always look like I know what I'm doing, which is hard when you get asked for a "platypus" and a "beaver board" in the span of five minuets. It reminds me of the old commercial for the Calendar section of the LA Times that used to run before movies like 10 years ago, where the PA gets asked to get the Best Boy a "spinner" which ends up being a coffee stir stick. A would like to put together a glossary of film terms on this site, but until then, a platypus is a pair of vice-grips with big flat metal jaws that is made to hold on to bounce board, and a beaver board is a 1/8 "apple box" with a stud for a light screwed onto it...

In other news, I have my first interview on Wednesday for an admin assistant position at an office in Hollywood. I know next to nothing about the job or the employer, so it should be interesting...

Wil Wheaton has a Post about poker that really belongs on Paulie's Poker Blog. Maybe poker-blogs will be the next big thing! Wil talks about bonding with his step-son over cards and not over catch. I have similar memories with my father. He also used to teach me a bunch of cool parlor bets. Ask me and I'll show you some time.
Actually I used to play a lot of cards with my mom too. From crazy eights to gin to poker. And speaking of my mom, Jules and I are driving down to Sunset Beach to visit with he tomorrow, and hopefully we will get a chance to catch "Lost in Translation" or "Matchstick Men" with her!

And Finally, drunkards everywhere take note: the tequila wars are a-brewin'.
