Alright guys.

I am officially going to be working a gig or 2 at The Playboy Mansion next month.

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Make sure you wack one out before you work.

It was sold, but I guess they still hold events there.

One of the gigs is a photo shoot / video shoot or something (morning type thing).

The other is the Mid Summer's Night Dream party.

Got into work early today, yesterday was really busy and today I want to make sure I get my shit done so I can sneak out early.  It's a real hassle for me to get from here to Brooklyn tonight in time to make it for Ghost even though it's only 11 miles away  :lol A tunnel, a bridge, and all city driving will do that.  Spending the weekend on Wall St (cheapest IHG branded hotel near the Barclays center) and it seems my drive takes me right along Maiden Lane so that seems fitting.

Should be a relatively quiet Friday. Only have one call scheduled, which *could* be a doozy, but otherwise I should be able to coast pretty nicely into the weekend.

So I am starting to not look forward to these Playboy gigs.

At least the first one. Having to get up early as hell to make the drive down there. No Bueno.

Sucks, but it sounds like it'll be a cool experience.  Definitely worth to do it at least once.

The first gig starts at 7:30 AM... on a Monday... and is likely a photo or video shoot. That means I have to leave by 6 AM to get there on time.

The second gig is on a Saturday, and starts at 7 PM.  That's the party to end all parties (Google search the Midsummer's Night Dream Party at Playboy to get an idea.) To work it, I'd have to miss a full shift the day of and the day after, as I work mornings on the weekends (unless I move some people around). But it's gonna be worth it. It's gotta be. Gonna get paid to watch women walk around topless all night. :biggrin:



Also...
I want to leave early! Too bad I am dealing with pointless bullshit today.

Eh, 6am leave time aint that bad.  Totally sounds worth it if for nothing just to say you worked in the playboy mansion at worst and at best... well who knows.  That's really cool and exciting.  Ya never know what door opens when you try something different and/or make sacrifices.

Leaving early for me doesn't really require manager approval.  THere's no set start/end times, but just about being responsible since if I leave, then there's no one supporting our largest data center, so got to make sure people are aware.  I also left the house shortly after 6am today to get in nice and early and make sure I earn that cash since leaving early means losing an hour or so of pay.

6am to drive through LA traffic. Just doesn't appeal to me.

One of my close friends, who happens to be an employee here, is going to work the saturday gig.  So he and I can cruise down there together. That's going to be cool in on itself.

And I can't leave early unless I find someone to come in and cover me (as we have to have 2 people here at all times). And then I'd need a good excuse. Can't say I'm sick, as I have been in contact with the owner of the company all day. He'd call my bluff.
