Some stuffs to talk about tonight...
Firstly, week one of the internship is in the books and I am quitely much enjoying myself. Wednesday morning started with a quick tour then I followed a guy named Daniel around. We handed out scripts to the control room and the audio room, then I went into the studio. For the first hour of Daybreak I watched and learned prompter, then for the second hour I shadowed Daniel on camera and did a couple small camera moves.
After Daybreak we waited around for the cut-ins from GMA, then after that was break time. Turns out that between 9am (when GMA ends) and 11am there's nothing to do in Production. So we hung around, I went on facebook for a bit, checked my email, that kinda stuff.
11am and it was time to edit together the Oprah promos, so I watched that, then we filmed a tease for some news story I don't remember anymore, then a live tease for the Nooncast. During Nooncast I shadowed more camera stuff and helped move stuff during transitions. I picked a couple good days to intern because Monday, Wednesday and Friday they have a segment called "Cook's Corner" on the Nooncast, where a chef from a local restaurant comes and makes some food to plug their restaurant. Wednesday was Steak Caprese over Farfalle with Pesto...delicious, we got to eat some after the show was over.
Friday I did a bit more camera work during Daybreak and just hung around in the studio during the cut-ins. After GMA we hung around because we had to film the Sunday morning show, "Closeup". I ran prompter during the opening and post-commercial intros, and camera three during the rest of the show. Though there wasn't much to do on camera three... I think all I did was zoom out a tad. But, yeah, I still did it, that's cool. Then it was breaktime, Oprah time, live tease, oh, webcasts, too, I forgot to mention those. Nooncast, the chef didn't leave food, though, but all he made was a sandwich. Filmed another couple webcasts and that was that.
In other news: I was on my way home on Friday afternoon and decided I was going to stop at the KFC in Stratham to see if THEY had any of the Original Recipe strips. I've tried to get them twice in Manchester, but both times they've been out of chicken (once it was just before closing, understandable, the other time...they said they were out of strips, not cool). So I get there, and it's fuckin closed! They closed the one by the mall, they closed the one in Stratham...now where the hell am I supposed to go for my chickeny goodness? I'm not goin to fuckin Seabrook, galldangit...
Next: Today was Nycholle's (slinky_girl

Finally: This, http://community.livejournal.com/ontd_political/746992.html
, scares the hell out of me. If McCain wins in November it will destroy what little faith I have left in the American democratic system.
And: Brian Regan is hilarious...that is all
