It's been slow. My schedule changed this week (not for the better, I liked working weekends) and I've been devoting what would normally be blogging time to my NaNoWriMo project. I imagine there might be a few of my regular readers who are questioning how I could dare abandon them. I guess on the infrequent day that I am bored, I just feel silly posting an announcement of the fact that I'm bored.
Last night I spent my shift covering the crackdown on illegal parking along Los Angeles streets during rush hour. The story itself was interesting and I got a chance to jump out of the newsvan to roll on cars about to be towed off. That got my blood pumping, but we were done shooting in an hour.
We had a lot of people asking about the story, because other stations were also covering it. It really turned into a night of public interruptions. We were parked near a videogame store and people also stopped to ask if we were there for the Halo2 debut.
The high point of the evening was setting up a liveshot in front of the Borders bookstore at Sunset and Vine in Hollywood. Did I spend my downtime browsing? You betcha. Wi-fi and coffee, first liveshot in the 10:00pm newscast, it don't get much better than this.
I suppose I could write about having lunch at "Hot Wings" on Melrose, but people who don't know the Hollywood area might not care. There's also the night out with Action-Wife over the weekend, but as fun as it was for us (yay, for "The Incredibles!"), it all seems so mundane when compared to my previous week (ha-ha, look at me, I'm blaming the election).
The novel is going well. Trudging along, but I'm happy to be writing again. I have to remember to be thankful for all the positive things I have in my life. That includes the patience of the beFrank regulars.
I'll be on the look-out for something interesting to post. I really don't want to change my name to InAction-Man.
