Uppers and Downers.

I feel like I just pulled 2 all nighters in a row. Not even coffee is working when you're this exhausted. It's times like this I curse my heart condition because an energy drink would totally cure this- but I really don't feel like having my heart explode just for my eyes to open properly. My body is screaming at me for making it function and my bed is crying from neglect. And the saddest part? I have had 7-9 hours of sleep each night. It's just the in between time that had me on my feet or running around the entire city like a crazy person.

And speaking of crazy people, have I met my fair share of those this weekend! I don't know what it is about the movie industry but it seems like that is the mothership. I spent the majority of the weekend making sure I didn't make any sudden movements and trying to dodge them like that plague but apparently I am a magnet for them. They flock to my beauty and want to tell me all about the things that go on in their insanely fucked up heads. Luckily I did not have to listen to a Bush conspiracy theory (that occurred in Union Square around 3am, but I easily avoided it and he sucked a bunch of drunk chicks instead into listening)

I did, however, have someone try to lecture me on smoking (yea. and not just a "hey those are bad for you. haha" like "I care about your health. you shouldn't do that"). I felt really bad for her. She didn't know what she was getting into but at the same time what kind of person lectures someone they don't know on that?! It has been a long time since someone was actually dumb enough to try to engage in an argument with me over this. At first I was willing to humor her (it had been awhile since I had gotten nice and heated over this subject) but I got over it quickly and ended with a suggestion to never do that again to someone you don't know and if you insist on continuing to discuss this with me I am going to be forced to ignore you.(Yes, she happened to be one of the crazies. . and I think she was hitting on me but it was hard to tell with all the socially retardedness going on).

I made a lot of friends with the security department, we seemed to have a lot in common, being that we were pretty much the closest you could get to normal and all. We had fun making fun of the clueless movie-goers together. But, surprisingly I did meet a lot of people that weren't in the industry or trying to break into it. I got along with them really well also. Hope I run into them at the Wrap Up Party! (Yes, a party is involved. How much more amazing can this get?)

What did I do you ask? Well, Saturday I handed out ballots and tallied All Access Passes as they came into the theater. Yesterday I stood outside answering questions and directing traffic (which was my favorite job so far. It reminded me of Disney, with less stupid people. Plus I got to wear a cool red jacket that made me feel important. The sorority girl definitely won the battle this weekend- which was a good change, I was starting to get scared the goth girl killed her). I don't have anything scheduled for the week- I will be working again next weekend, but I might pick something up depending on how tired I am and if I want to forgo my duties and just go to a movie.

Oh! And yesterday I met Isaac Mizrahi. I told him I really like his clothes, but I don't buy them because I think they are too expensive for Target.

(about actually telling him that, anyway.)
