Another Day Working the US Open...hello monitor wall

Another day and more monitors.
In the beginning of a tourney it's all chaos.
It's basically making sure things are working.
Jumping from feed to feed and various outputs.
Slates, files, QA, spellcheck, correct, purge and stay awake.
We got a good crew and a fun team.
It's a lot of work and a lot of fun.
Come on who knew this internet thing would have been this way when we were young.
Week 2 things slow down and the matches come more in to focus.
I might visit the open on my off day on Monday.
Hello lots of food and shenanigans.
But we'll just have to wait and see.
So I gotta keep my eyes peeled for now...
Back in the control room...

Just found this photo searching through old ones.
It made realize 1 haven't seen Mers in ages which I knew.
And two I haven't seen A Great Big Pile of Leaves in a while as well.
I think this was from a show at the Loft.
It was a random day of meeting folks at picnic.
Having beers at a locals bar.
Going to the show.
And then doing the NY-JC-NY-NJ commute routine.
I do believe it was a crazy and tiring day.
Lots of walking.

Waiting for my blue whale and saying vamos to Karen

Waiting for my blue whale by thismeik
Waiting for my blue whale, a photo by thismeik on Flickr.

Yesterday was a friday I do believe.
Got some work done and edited.
Tested out some new things.
More Projects getting figured out.
But was also surprised a repair man in the am.
We apparently have fellow Swatch Watchers in our building.
This will come up again some time soon.
At some point I was debating if I could get a full sized Deer or Turkey decoy shipped to the office.

But alas it was Karen's last day.
A large portion of the crew made it to Houlihans..
I order a drink called a blue whale.
Since it comes with a plastic blue whale.
However since we were on the patio I was told the patio cup could not support the weight of said blue whale.
So drink after drink I reminded the water I would still like like plastic blue whale.
Kyle (leaf pile) even joined in with the chants.
Alas a storm came and we all sprinkled away.
Good times and fun farewell for Karen who is off to the land of Curb and Treme...
Best of luck....
But seriously what do I have to do to get my whale...
Not The Blue Whale (Scotch)
Scotchy scotch scotch
Look Pa Pa a Twister, a Twister
Storm!!!!!
Stormy Car view
Craze rain
The Beast Sleeps
Release the Cracken....Oh wait it's sleeping
