The Trick is to Keep Breathing
2005-04-15 20:31:50 ET

I finally get some time to update the journal.
hmm, where to start. Work's busy, the christmas catalogue is moving along at it's breakneck pace. If it's one thing that rivals last minute shopping it's shooting the stuff 8 months before people are clamoring to buy it. I still would like to know how I'm supposed to meet my deadlines when I'm receiving my layouts 2 days after they're due.

They call me in the studio:

"Sean, have you shot (insert SKU here) on page (#) yet?"
"I haven't even seen that layout... what are you talking about?"
"Well can you have it shot by this afternoon? That spread is going to mock-up tomorrow."
"But I haven't seen that spread... hello?"
Typical day.

So theGirl is hunting for a job... furiously. I'm on edge, cause if she doesn't find anything it may be back to the states for her for awhile, leaving me without my wife. I'm not sure I could handle that. Keep the whiskey away at that point. (kidding... sort of)

NIN concert is just over 3 weeks away. Anybody know someone going to the May 9th show? I'm flying solo that night and if I can find someone else going (someone that I know, somehow) it'll make a for a better evening. No, that's not a guilt trip buddy. I'm eternally grateful that you scored the ticket, otherwise I wouldn't be going at all. And I still have to get you cash for U2. I just got paid, so we'll hook up for coffee real soon.

Trying to keep in touch with family and friends, that's the other thing I have trouble with. I think it's the part of me that's introverted and humble. I forget that people actually want to hang out with me. Lord knows why.

Looking forward to: New NIN and Coldplay albums, sleeping in tomorrow, leftover pizza for lunch, hanging with Rob tomorrow night.
When you have the opportunity check out Hotel Rwanda. That's my Blockbuster pick of the week.
Oh, and I saw Kung Fu Hustle (imported DVD from Hong Kong, perfectly legal). Now there's a movie for an audience with ADD! It goes through about 20 different genres and styles of directing, paying homage to everything from film noir to Looney Tunes. Tonnes of fun! Go see it when it comes out.

K, time to get off the apple. Night all!

I will be at the May 9th show!

Jeff, his friend Adam, and myself all scored tickets and we're going to camp out in front of Kool Haus as soon as we get into Toronto. You can find me there if you'd like.

Oh yes, I am there!!! I will come a hunting for you... In all likelihood I'll be wearing my bondage jeans and shouting "MAAARRRRKKK!!!!" a few dozen times.

Yay! I'm happy now. I hate going to concerts alone.

I have no idea what I'm going to wear yet, and it worries me.

I'll definately keep my ears open for you! =)

If I had the cash I could send you my pvc bondage pants. Very sleek.

I fear that I may have to settle for dark jeans. I just bought a new pair... they looked awesome in the store, but now that I've got them home I'm having second thoughts...

Store lighting is very deceiving. I've had that happen a few times.
I know, wear white. Nobody'd see that coming! You'd definitely stand out.
