Rough Morning


I spent the night dreaming about swimming with alligators. I don’t recall what the situation was; only that I was in a stretch of muddy water and that I knew there were alligators in it with me who were very interested in catching up with me.

I woke up sweating to the early alarm, which I hardly ever hear. I couldn’t get back to sleep and I didn’t really want to try, but I wasn’t ready to get up yet either. When my regular alarm went off twenty minutes later I finally dragged myself out of bed to start the day.

The sink had magically refilled itself with dirty dishes. I swear they just come bubbling up from the drain the minute the sink becomes empty. The Curmudgeonly Lion was angry with me for moving a stack of paperwork on the kitchen table that I hadn’t realized that he had sorted into specific piles. Once he left for work I went back to bed to try to start over.

I used to look forward to weekends as times when I could relax and get caught up, but this weekend is dedicated to film shoots: on Saturday I shoot my first “real” project for class. Then on Sunday I help several of my classmates with their directing scenes just like they helped me last weekend. I’m looking forward to getting out and about and helping on projects that I’m not in charge of, but I’m dreading the following week when I will have to go back to classes without having had a day to myself. Technically speaking I have no classes today so I can use the time to prepare for the coming week, but it is hard to enjoy a day with no classes when you have a film shoot hanging over your head like the sword of Damocles. (I’m getting really good at these classical references- yesterday it was Hercules, today it is Damocles).

At any rate, that is what is most deeply occupying my mind so I’m afraid that is all that I have to write about at the moment. With luck I’ll have more interesting news to report after a weekend on set. Stay tuned!
