I am quite amused by the comments of a coworker that I have a larger than life persona. This is
amusing as I never envisioned myself as such. Some voices tend to carry and for better or worse mine does even when spoken softly.
I have made efforts to spend more time than usual with the rest of the people on the trip. No matter where we go I seem to end up in the memorable moments section of any of these trips. A typical example was when we went into the haunted house at universal. A costumed actor jumped out with a knife and a blood curdling scream. I told him I was allready circumcised and to check with the folks behind. Even the actors in costume had to laugh. The laughter continued as I bumped into a wall.
The trip has been loaded with such moments. Left to my own devices I am usually quiet.
I am leaving LA for Laguna Nigel tommorow.
The interviews went well. I saw some very interesting people and only one went away unhappy
despite my best efforts. My mentors were real pros and gave me good ratings. Everyone had a
great time. The mishaps were not terrible, but I am glad they happened and they were invaluable learning experiences.
I will try and see if I can call in the Gathering Storm on Friday. It is easier to take a break with
files than with live people.
