My Squee Runneth Over!

I got some stuff in the mail today. First of all, I got my copy of Your Hate Mail will be Graded from Subterranean Press. It's the signed edition; number 136 of 1000. Yay!

But the thing that really got me giddy was a package from the woman who was the Assistant Location Manager on the movie I just finished. At first, I thought it was going to be another of the shirts that the production handed out because it had been addressed from the Production Office. I thought she might not have known that I'd already gotten mine and sent me one from the office. This didn't really thrill me because the shirt the production had made...is somewhat less than awesome. Leave it to say that it reminds me of a cycling shirt from the 80's...is made from some material not known to nature, and for some odd reason, the font they used is the one from Gossip Girls.

But no. I opened the mailer and found that I'd gotten a highly personalized T-Shirt, just for me!
It seems, that during our Production Meeting, the Production Designer sketched a picture of me in his Shooting Schedule. (A Shooting Schedule contains notes on every element needed to shoot each scene in the movie and you can sit there discussing those elements forever.) As you'll note from reading the linked post, I was in and out of the meeting trying to solve my little problem and apparently, I didn't look like a happy camper during the times I was in the meeting.

So, anyway, the aforementioned Assistant Location Manager saw the sketch and asked if she could have it. And then she went and had a T-shirt made out of it. For me!

I dub it excellent!


And no, I wasn't smoking during the meeting, but I imagine I looked as if I wished I were.

You so owe that woman.

How cool.

P.S. I got my copy of Hate Mail yesterday. I've already read the Chapbook, which made me all warm and fuzzy.

I haven't gotten my copy of Hate Mail yet - many tomorrow.

How cool is that? You MUST hire her again!!---

Nathan said...

Actually, we've done four or five shows together.

On one movie I gave her a call sheet wallet at the beginning of the show. She figured if she was getting a wrap gift at the beginning, the job was really gonna suck!

I, too, dub it most excellent. She is awesome!

You don't look like you should be smoking, you look like you've been drinking.

Cool shirt, can I haz one?

Nathan said...

Well Jim,

I only have the one and I'm keeping it.

OTOH, if Anonymous Assistant Location Manager (FerGodSakes delurk and tell me I can use your name dammit), wants to go into business...

Nathan, supexellent shirt! I mean, very nice!

But more importantly, I CAN GET TO YOUR BLOG FROM WORK! I wonder if it was just that post (no, it couldn't have been), or just a temporary glitch. But no matter, because it's fixed! Woo Hoo!

OK, enough with the exclamation marks. :)

TaDa!

*Be afraid . . . be very afraid . .

Nathan said...

WTF is that on your head?

The ALM said...

That, my friend, is a fabulous hat. Knitted by moi. And admit it, you want one just like it.

The ALM's BF said...

WTF. It's not just any hat. It's MY hat. How unorthodox of you not to recognize its teh Hawesomeness.

Nathan said...

Well, not meaning any offense, but from here, it looks like alm is wearing a chicken that stayed on the grill a little too long.

Just sayin'.

The ALM said...

Kinda like your dinner tonight?

Just sayin'.
