Phat Days

Posted by Unknown |

I got a message from my dear friend Howie today saying "Blog". I said "Soon". So here I am.

The sadness is that this is the first chance I've had to blog since Thursday. It's not the first chance that I've had something to write about, it's the first time I've been at a computer that I've had time to write about things I want to write about.

I did manage to have a big youth night on Saturday and Scripture Seminars today at the High School. Two massive things that should never be within 3 days of each other.

The Scripture Seminars were tough. There was lots of communication confusion in volunteer recruiting and I ended up getting to the school this morning (8am!) and finding out that we were down 2 volunteers, which is a large amount in the land of scripture seminars. But we pushed through, and survived. Some kids may even have heard about Jesus.

Actually I had fun with every year but year 8. Year 8 pretty much just talked and walked around the classroom completely ignoring Karen and me. The others though were quality. Maybe next week I'll get the good year 8 class.

I've been video editing tonight. Sal came over to do stuff for the film. Because there is a distinct lack of people in the house at the moment, Jo, Sal and I went out to dinner. That was fun.

The editing was way slow tonight. I've been going well. Some nights I've been able to knock over 3-4 scenes in 2 hours. Today it took me 6 hours to do just one. Mainly because we were filming in a location that kept getting interrupted by planes and ice cream vans. Plus the dialogue was pretty fast. So finding good takes was quite a task.

But now, I'm looking forward to bed. It's been a severely neglected place these past few days. I hate alarms. Except when I ignore them.
