06:18 am - That time again
It's the time of the morning where things have slowed to a crawl. I'm waiting for one file of a job to get out of proofreading, then I can prepare that job for Quality Check ("QC" as we call it 'round these parts) in time for it to make it's 9:00 a.m. due time.

Of course, I could just let some first-shift person take up the duty of getting it ready for QC. That'd let me get home a bit early and get started on my day off.

I'm feeling a need to do an Autumn-related thing. Maybe I'll go rake up some of the leaves that have fallen or just sit out under a tree while they fall.

Most likely, though, I'll just drift off to sleep once I get home, the way I always do. I'll be pulled back to wakefulness at various points for one reason or another only to drift back to blissful slumber. Hopefully, I will be fully awake sometime in the late afternoon and can do a thing or two with my free time.

I'd really like to see a couple of movies that are out there, before they disappear from theaters. That always takes such precise timing though; get there when it's going to be starting. Not too early, or you just eat all your popcorn before the movie starts. Not too late, or you'll miss the previews. And, heaven forfend! not late enough that you miss any of the movie. What would be great is if the house lights dimmed when I got settled in to my seat. I suppose that's too much to ask.

Maybe I should go buy a winning lottery ticket. Then I could buy my own theater and run movies whenever I wanted.

Winning lottery tickets

If you're going to buy winning lottery tickets, please buy one for me too! ;-)

mm, are the trees actually changing colour? Here we went from riduculouly hot to insta Rainy season, so it's all just a sick mouldering yellow.

So how's that thing going? ;>

What would it take to have your movie theatre? If you ever get one, would you be kind enough to have an Orange and Popcorn girl in a little Betty Boop outfit to cure the Popcorn to Preview ratio problem?
I miss McMinneman's movie theatres from Portland Oregon, they had a lovely old movie house, rather like the Uptown, and tore out everyother roww to put a counter/table and served pizza and beer. mmmm. They also did one in and old schoolgym and put the worlds ugliest collection of armchairs, rockers and sofas as seating. Kinda like a giant Cinema Rex. :> If I ever settle back in the States, I think I want to go back there, that is if this isn't the end of the World, what with earthquakes, Pandemics and War. sigh.

Indeed, the trees, they are molting.

Thanks for asking about that thing: I'm waiting for my friend in Vancouver to get her printer fixed so she can print the script and start storyboarding.

Well, I'm not sure what it'd take to get my own theater. Part of me would want to do it right like Paul Allen did in refurbing the Cinemascope theater in Seattle. But it's something to look at, I suppose....
