summary

Yesterday, I was on the set of “Friends” for a full 9 hours. You wouldn’t believe it. Megan’s mum introduced us to the Head Stage Designer at Warner Bros and through him, we had the opportunity to be part of this once in lifetime (at least for me) event. This took every little bit of my patience. You basically sit on a set of bleachers overlooking the five different rooms in which “Friends” is filmed. An animator is constantly jumping around in front you, throwing Snicker bars and trying to get you to scream and clap. Every four hours they pass a few boxes of pizza down the isles and beverages usually follow an hour after that. You are only allowed to go to the bathroom once there is a group of at least 20 others. The group has to be escorted to the nearest container building and a shrieking voice reminds you to pee quickly. Then you walk back to the stage and wait 20 minutes to be let into the building again. I am really glad that I got to make this experience, but I am staying away from moovie studios for a while. Yet, the coolest thing about the whole gig was that we got to have lunch with the crew of “Drew Carey”.

Last week was a crazy week for me. On Monday night, me and a bunch of my colleagues went out to a hotel bar in Beverly Hills. I truly made the most out of that experience. Lots of coronas, tequila and supposedely even some wine. The following night was spent in the office. I worked for 33 straight hours. And that after a night of heavy drinking. By Wednesday, I looked and smelled about as bad as you possible could. Unfortunately, we had a day of corporate coaching. A presentation coach from England spend the day with us. Oh boy. Here are some of his favorite lines about me:

“You are killing me”…”Stop, Stop, Stop”…”Your quirky little smile is not going to get you anywhere in giving this presentation”…”This is the end of my latin”.

What a week.

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you

    Virtually all of the things you mention happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. Nevertheless there is 1 issue I am not necessarily too comfy with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the issue, let me observe exactly what the rest of the subscribers have to say.Nicely done.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks
