      So like,
      I come into the studio just before 4am only to find a dead APC int he edit suite.
      bummer. I little rearranging of some cables and I’m up and going at a snail’s pace. I head back out to the van and grab a case of bottled water. As I wrestle with a my card getting back in the building, I drop the water and spend a while collecting singles from the sidewalk and buishes. No worries.
      deep breath.
      So, deep voiced from no sleep, I set up to lay down a scratch track for a longform video I’m on. I find I have to reroute a couple of more ac cables to do so. I stumble my way through the script. Takes forever as there are multiple versions.
      Finally get done (whew)
      I quickly rough out the vo, trimming up all my stumbles and whatnot. I then decide to take a lil break before tearing into the rough cut so I check my email…
      and find two revised scripts waiting for me.
      It aint 7am yet. I’m beat.
