its new phone time!

I am returned to my blog.

Yes it is a tech week

Yes im not programming

I finally got my new phone yesterday after long months of dealing with a constantly dying one. Some may call me silly for going with another motorola after the issues i had with the Dext. But the hardware issues were outweighed by the brilliant MOTOBLUR (predictive text capitalises it!) Software. Which meant when i logged into my account on my new phone ALL my contacts and accounts were waiting for me. Fucking fabulous!

This tech is awful the jumped up lecturer is a douche and the student ld is a disgrace to her teachers. The casts accents are so awful theyve given me a headache and the studio is BOILING!

Peace out lovers x

Once more into a tech dear friends

Well, another week another show. Its good so far, cant ask for anything more than the first half done in the first tech session!
The show is View from the Bridge and, judging by the run i saw last week its going to be very frickin good.
I downside is we've got a work experience boy here, and he is a serious techie boy.
What i mean by techie boy is a kid who ALWAYS knows better than you, as far as he's concerned. Who already knows everything and more about technical theatre. Anjd i'm reasonably certain the young ones refuse to listen/accept your opinions if only because you are female.
Now im not saying this kid is for sure a techie boy, he may well be nervous and just trying to show he knows stuff about our industry.
I had a run in with one at uni, the thing with techie boys is they NEVER have any creative instinct, but are certain that they do. This run in ended with Brychan nearly knocking him out when he said "see ya later Bitch" to me, as i'd joked that as the LD/tech director for the show we were working on...he was my bitch. In standard techie boy form, he refused to admit someone might know more than him or be in a higher position.
I think its the arrogance and know its the smug expressions that truly get my back up with these people (as im sure techie girls exist too). I mean this kid commented so disparagingly on the Strand 530 console (having never even used one) that i immediately pointed out all its good points and how without it we'd still be using switches and the desk his stage school have wouldnt even exist, and how i obviously disliked their desk. (Which i don't i think the EOS series is awesome.)
These boys may well grow up, keep their knowledge but stop being such smug little twunts. I do very very much hope this is the case.

Anyways, peace n love n all that.

The wonderous Strand LBX. Yes, that is a golf ball. No, its not a control for a Lego motorised toy.

So, me, doing Yoga?!

Mad right? The skinny girl who hardly ever exercises out of choice mostly because my job is pretty damn physical! But i figure that i can't rely on work for exercise, Show call is not condusive to fitness, too much sims on the sofa.
So, this week while i've had the mornings free with Attempts work in the afternoon/evening i've been playing with Yoga. I found this great DVD; Yoga for Dummies, which is so very very like a spoof video that i enjoy watching it and I've so far done half an hour of Yoga the last 3 days. AND myself and chiropractor sarah are going to a class at LA fitness on sunday.
So far (gosh every paragraph begins with So doesn't it?) I am enjoying it, i've been a little less stiff each afternoon, and i've done a few more of the 'Daily Dozen' ending today with the full dozen performed before 11am! Woo!

Lets see if i can keep this up! (Like the blogging)

Nomasdae! (Fuck knows if thats how its spelt!).

PAD thats blown it!

...just maybe, one day when i say i'll keep up with my blog, ill keep up with it.
I mean, i seem to have had a lot more to say when i was 18/19 than i do now at 25.
Or is it merely that i'm now stupidly busy and pretty much live in a theatre?
For example, this week I'm working 1pm til 10pm. My routine the last 2 days has been:
10am(ish) get-up and attempt some Yoga (more on that later)
11am(ish) shower, do random household chores washing up etc.
12pm eat, watch ground force whilst playing Sims.
1240pm leave for work.
11pm get home from work after consuming a fake beer in the bar (More on that later). Play some sims or watch TV.
1230am go to bed.

Sure i could get up earlier and get more in, but i like sleeping til 10 its the only way i really feel like ive had enough sleep. I WISH i was someone who got up at 8am no matter what they were doing, people who get a morning as well as an extra bit of evening.
Anyway, i ramble.
I shall post about Yoga and alcohol free beer later. (No i'm not pregnant, just a bit broken.)
With my current track record, the yoga post will be december and the beer one sometime in 2012

Return of the Em.

Hello Blogging-World! (or probably just Kate actually)

it's been a bloody long time since i've posted on here. could it be due to lack of desk? or merely laziness? or perhaps 'cause i'm always at work?

well anyway, i figure as i'm doing this wonderous Photo A Day journal thingy, that i shall do a monthly blog post with all included.

and you never know... maybe i'll post some more now i've cleared off the desk.
