mythbusters, reject

Sleep schedule still not behaving. Knees placid; feet in open rebellion.

[21:10] peoppenheimer> yay mark
[21:10] xb95> I had to beg for help!
[21:10] xb95> because this loop appeared, and I didn't know why!
[21:11] rahaeli> i come in from smoking and he's all "something terrible has happened!"

Today: cleaning, trying to catch up, writing, pizza-fetching, Glee. Called Drewface. Mathsie pokes Drewface. Drewface is not on Sprint. Plans to catch up with Mathsie happen after Oregon.

[07:48] V_PauAmma_V> (to jadelennox) Ada combines COBOL's numerical computing features, Algol's multitasking, PL/I's abstract typing, and... hmm, not sure where it got its file handling from, but whatever it is, I don't want to use it.

Appear to have slept the better part of 12 hours. Woops. Ah well. I wasn't using today for much of anything anyway. Also, it appears to be raspberry-leaf tea season again.

Lube is not neosporin.

Excited. Will need sleep though. Glad I got a lot of it earlier.

OMG my feet still hurt. On the bright side, the myth that my knee will assassinate me if I stand on it all day? Busted! (Look for me in my purple hat in 2-4 months in part of a crowd scene.)

ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN. (Contains MythBuster-y content.)

I've been having a lot of social lately; this is actually better than the alternative, as it builds up my tolerance for People and Doing Things. (Excessive introversion, agoraphobia, and lack of Doing Things and Exposure to People results in bad stuff, and then no ability to spring back when I do get out and do things and see people.)

Called best friend to babble bits about stuff. (Called at lunch; got some helpful suggestions. <3) Called later, got the machine. He then called back and we ran more of my battery down. On the bright side, now my battery's been drained and is recharging? (Best friend does not, as a rule, call the hell back.)

We got sent outside again for the actual volunteering bit!

Grant takes a picture of the volunteer crowd: (I'm somewhere invisible in the back)

Not sure how much I can say about the actual volunteering, but it did involve a lot of standing outside in the hot sun. Many of us brought sunscreen (including/especially me). Sunscreen people became especially popular. I escaped the day with only a touch of sun-pinkness as of this morning. The taco truck was AMAZINGLY popular, and got a huge cheer every time. I may have sprained my voice. Tory and Grant are hysterical in person. They don't have to go out of their way to make jokes for the show: it looks like a lot of their general hilarious banter gets cut.

Tory with @JulianaMarie:

From MB executive producer - Thanks to all today's awesome volunteers. You guys rocked! Our fans are the best!!

After the myth was wrapped, we all got T-shirts -- or at least, as long as the supply lasted. They'd miscalculated. The people who didn't get them then wrote their names down and they pledged to ship them. There were photo opportunities and T-shirt signing with Tory and Grant and the police. A couple guys mentioned that they'd left their resumés with other members of the crew.

The MythBuilders (our clique of four) bade each other farewell and headed off into the warm evening sun. Collapse )

Found out that I was eligible for free phone upgrade due to having it long enough. Package is out for delivery now; seeing if it'll come before I absolutely have to leave for the Dreamwidth gathering.
