San Francisco, Part 3
So, early morning on Saturday. Got dressed up in a suit and went down for some on-the-job training.
The short version is this is just something I'm doing for a buddy's company that will require me maybe 25 days a year. I'll be handling computer shit for them, sometimes it will take me out of town, other times not so much.
Won't interfere with my moviemaking.
The on-the-job training was fairly easy but stressful given that it's a time-sensitive thing. So it was nearly impossible to ask questions while it was going on.
We worked until about 7:30pm, then we were good to take off until the next morning at 7:30am again. Luke and Nelly wanted to go get a bite to eat, and since I'd eaten Subway about four time already, I was ready for a change.
We went to Mel's diner, a replica of the diner from American Graffiti. It was pretty good, or I was pretty hungry. Had a burger and fries.
Back in my room I caught up on some TV shows, checked my internet. I was pretty tired.
Or so I thought.
At 11pm I took another blue pill. Nothing. At midnight I was wondering why I wasn't nodding off. I played some iphone Scrabble against my mom, who kept playing a turn. I downloaded some new apps(a pinball game, the panorama program, anything else that caught my eye and was free or only $.99)...
At 1am I knew I was in trouble. If you're awake 2 hours after taking the pill then you are not gonna go down.
Tossed and turned most of the night. Last time I checked the clock it was 3:15am.
Woke up at 7am and felt like my head was stuffed with cotton. Barely four hours of sleep.
More on the job training, but day 2 went smoother since I was a little more used to their system. But by the time we wrapped up and I helped them load, it was like 10pm.
Everybody wanted to go out to get a bite to eat, so I went with the group back to Mel's diner. Nothing else was open at that time of night on a Sunday night. Everybody but Luke went because he wanted to watch the Game of Thrones premiere.
This is us at the table with the panorama thing. It really doesn't work well moving it in a circle by yourself.
