We have done a ton of work at my office in the past
month few months year.
I am nearly giddy with excitement to know that in just 48 hours, all of this will be over. The 175 celebration extravaganza festival onslaught has been fun and all, but seriously. I have worked on this long enough. lol
We’ve got a film now– produced, edited, wrapped, and pressed, including case artwork,
a full event planned (yay! posters! I got to do that part),
a museum exhibit installed (as you know, since I won’t shut up about it LOL),
a premiere event planned & ready to go (thanks, Liz Noblitt Phillips!),and about a thousand other things done.
Yeah, a magazine. That too.
No one has stabbed anyone yet and I think most of the event plans are in place for Saturday to be just awesome. It looks like even the weather will cooperate.
And if things really are as smooth as they seem, once Saturday afternoon rolls around and the initial rush is over, I hope to sit under the trees in a camp chair and talk with friends while we watch the sun drop behind the Towers as music plays and a dude juggles fire.
Oh, and caramel corn.
Yay! We done good.
But SERIOUSLY. Way too much work, way too few people.
It’s 2am. I’m wired like an electric fence. Haven’t sipped coffee since 11am, I promise. It’s the nervous energy of a major event that could — probably won’t — spin out of control. What am I forgetting? What did we not think to do? Who’s going to be offended at an honest omission that comes across as a slight?
Gonna try to sleep now. Come see me on Saturday. It’ll be rad. I promise.
I write. I design. I cook. I read. I make music. I talk to people -- all kinds of people.
I used to teach and hopefully will do so again someday.
My dream job would be a cross between barrista and consultant, with a large helping of international travel and bohemian wandering through concerts, museums, galleries, and open spaces.
Somewhere back in time, my students started calling me "RameyLady" and the name stuck. I like it. There's a Ramey-man too. He's a much better writer but he seems to be too humble to share it with the world....at least, not yet.
