Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

I'm sitting here trying to occupy my mind. I lost my keys and now I'm trying to figure out just hwere they are. Its the most annoying thing, because I am really hoping I haven't lost them too far. I don't know.

Today has been an interesting day, very interesting indeed. While doing some statics, I got a call from the disability department. They said that they had just gotten a call from a guy from a publishing company/film company who wanted to see if there were people whod be interested in advising them as to blind etiquette. Another minor detail, they wanted a random guide dog that was going to be available on Wednesday and Thursday, and also sometime next semester for mor shooting. Lots of requests n that little message, but I rang the dude back. He used this journal to get an idea of how Fiona looked. He seemed to think that she would photograph well in the dark settings in the film.

we're still fuzzy on the plot of the film, but it involves a blind girl and a dog. I decidded that it probably wouldn't be the greatest idea to just "buy a harness on the internet and put it on a normal dog". So that's why they saught dogs, and as an afterthought, me. I guess I was the first person to call back being taht I have no life here at the room, from the people that the CSD contacted.

Its pretty cool yet kind of daunting at the same time. I'm not familiar with independent films; how they are shot, how it all works etc. I just know that they're coming on Wednesday to pick me up for the start of "transitional filming" whatever thatmeans. I guess the script isn't quite completed, and I'm told that the full filming process won't start until February.

I'm meeting with the "blind" actrice tomorrow so that she can meet Fiona and so I can start the process of convincing Fiona that this person is ok to work with. It'll be difficult because if Fiona is not comfortable with a person she tends to not work, something that won't probably look good on film. I'm so nervous for not only Fiona but for me. Chris'll be another technical adviser and if all else fails, there's always Raymond waiting in the wings, and if that fails, I'm sure Denver wouldn't mind :). Fiona's a fighter though so I'm sure it will work out. I hope I'm a good trainer, and good technical adviser, and I hope for gods sake that they don't do stupid dumb blind dude things in this movie.

I'll give you all more details when I can, but I don't want to reveal too much this close to the beginning of the movie. THis seems to be the thing to do, I don't know. I just think its cool that I'm going to get to learn how a movie is made, and, I'll make it on to the credits. What more can I ask for in life? :). More later.

Losing things isn't cool, not cool at all...

I don't even know when you'll read this, being that it's so far back in your journal, but losing things really isn't any fun at all. It's worse if what you're looking for is "right under your nose," as the old cliche goes, but you still can't seem to find it. Did I mention how much I *really* don't like cliche's? *grins* Yeah, I think I did, but it's always fun to reiterate that fact.

Anyway, onto the losing things bit...
Once, I think it was first semester--or was it last semester?, (that isn't important really), I went out of my room and started to walk out of the building to class, when I suddenly realized that I'd left my keys in my room. I wtnt to the front desk, confessed my misfortune as it were, and they gave me the unlick key, which would allow me to go back into my room to find my actual keys. I also had to pay them two dollars or so to get the unlock key in the first place, but when you're in a jam like that, there really isn't anything you can do but just suck it up and pay the two dollars or however much it is. Anyway, upon returning to my room and not finding my keys, I look in the only place I could imagine them possibly being, my bookbag. I look in there, and damned if my keys aren't sitting in there, probably laughing at my being forgetful and a total dork. Needless to say, I was pissed at having them all that time, and also at having wasted two prescious dollar bills. I returned the unlock key to the people at the front desk, but spared then an account of my foolishness.

ANother thing that hapened--I think this past semester--was that I'd somehow misplaced my college ID. Without that, you're pretty much screwed, cuz you need it for food and other things around campus. I'd lost one first semester as well, so this one would have been my second one in a fairly short amount of time. Also, because it was my second one, I would have been charged more money than I was the first time I'd gotten a replacement. The first time it was $10, and a second replacement is around $25. Yeah yeah yeah, I know, stupid, but because private schools are private schools, they can do things like that to get even more of our money that at least I don't have to give all that freely in the first place. ANyway, to keep this short, because I think I've far exceeded my rambling limit for any comment post from anyone ever in history, ;P, the day before I was to go and sadly fork over the $25 for a replacement, someone from the student union building called ans said that my ID was there, and that I could come pick it up. Much relieved, Ohio and I definitely did just that. lol
So yes, losing things *definitely* isn't fun, not in the least. It's frustrating, and annoying, and blah.
But right...I'm going to go now, because I've probably bored you or something. *smiles*
