So today was an interesting day at ABC. First off, before I even went to work, I became dizzy and was worried that I was going to be sick again. But...I pushed through and carpooled like always with Ben. Once I got to ABC, the morning meeting began and I found out why Ben and I got stuck in traffic all night Sunday. Someone died in a car crash...so us complaining about traffic felt a little selfish when someone lost their Mom.
But, the newsroom was all a frenzy because President Bush was coming to Utah to raise money for John McCain. We didn't have near enough Photographers...so stories had to be shelved or rushed. I began the morning by writing for our 4 o'clock producer Jen and she gave me a story to write for Barb Smith. I finished and turned to her to tell her I was done. She started laughing and said, "You know, you're so good it scares me" she then said that she sometimes wondered if I would be better at her job then she was. I told her she was silly, and she said, "You just write so fast!" She asked me when I graduated... basically there is a job waiting to write for ABC if I want it. Not sure I do....
Then I went out with the reporter Buddy to shoot the Presidents Motorcade arrival. He was an hour late, so a lot of standing around. Finally...He drove past us in the limo. It was about 15 seconds of excitement... whop-tee-do. But I got to shoot a stand up and Joe, the Photog, said "That was really good, don't you think that was good Buddy?" Buddy agreed and they continued to remark on how usually the interns suck at stand-ups and that it went really well. Someone later saw the tape when doing Buddies story and said that it looked really professional. Yea! So exciting. I watched the newscast and then went to pick up Ben from work. We were teased that Lost season finale was tonight...they lied to us. :( Sad. But we hit Costco for food, fruit and shower curtains. Ben's brother Josh is coming to visit us this weekend and we figure we might try to make the house as livable as possible since we're gutting it anyway. (I'll put up pictures soon).
Well kiddies, that's all from the Smith household tonight. Love you all.
