Back Home Again in Indiana
Hey, kids, hey. Apologies on being MIA the last few weeks. I know we’ve all been really torn up about it. Life’s been pretty terrible the last week and a half. And by “life”, I mean “work”. I know everyone’s all “Doing a week’s worth of work in 3 days is the worst”, but I’m pretty sure you don’t really get it until you do 7 days’ worth of commercials and voice track 12 shows in 3 days.
This pretty much sums it up:
‘Twas the week of Thanksgiving, and all across the land
Radio prod departments were getting out of hand.
“Deadlines?!? What deadlines?!?” the AEs cackled with glee.
“I’ll turn this in whenever! They’ll never stop me!”
And then I assume the fetal position in the corner. Sometimes I cry. (I was going to actually finish it out, but time has been a luxury I can’t afford. Maybe next year.)
The good news is the madness ends today. The even better news is the parentals are coming down for Thanksgiving today and they’re bringing wine with them so I should be right as rain by Monday. (What does “right as rain” mean anyway? Can rain be wrong? Or is it saying rain falls at a right angle? Because sometimes it’s windy and the rain’s just falling all over the place like a drunk hobo over a curb.)
In the meantime, you kids have a swell Thanksgiving. And remember – if you don’t eat yourself into a food coma, Thanksgiving didn’t really happen. We’re all counting on you.
P.S. I basically didn’t sleep last night so I’m not 100% sure this is in human English.
