The 11th hour

I love the smell of printer's ink in the morning...it smells like..well it smells like they are getting my flippin' book printed is what it smells like. I'm on hour 12 now and going strong. The press was down from noon until 4:30. A blanket went bad under one of the plates and was leaving a weird little mark on several of the opener photos. So they were down quite a while trying to fix it. We've done three forms since 4:30. It's 7 pm now. I took advantage of the down time to go get some dinner at Los Primos. Authentic Mexican. So authentic, I could barely make out what the waitress was saying. Good thing I spent all that time living in NM. I too can say burritos Mexicanos y Tecate por favor.

I swear the guys on my press are fucking artists. This book is looking great. Two of the pressmen have asked for copies once it's bound. Not a problem. I'm on my second shift of pressmen. They seem pretty normal. It's the ones that come in on third shift that tend to be a little...off. But crazy people are fun too.

Hugs and warm wishes to all my friendswho are dealing with some harsh shit. I feel for you folks.

Peace and Love,

Wander

I have a ton of off-topic stuff to ask you. But it can wait. :)

Re:
Just email me. I have a laptop here that I'm leaving connected.

It will help me kill time between forms.

Technically, it wasn't 7 pm yet, it was 6:56 pm. ;-)

Re:
Ok OK. And now it's 11 pm. I've been here for 16 hours now. Starting to get a little goofy. Third shift just came on.

I feel like a nap but I don't want to really fall asleep and miss a form.
