Tonight, I'm covering for the network the premier of the new Harry Potter book at one of the local bookstores. If it goes well, I'll show you all where to go see it. If it sucks, I won't mention it again...

Well now, went to the premiere last night. In uniform, because the current commander has the dopey idea that we need to be in uniform on shoots (usually, AFN polo and khakis are ok).
So, it's humid in a cramped bookstore. Kids in costumes everywhere, trying to maneuver heavy camera equipment all around...
...And towards the end of the shoot, my field pack runs out of room. And I just reformated this bitch. Now, I still have enough footage to get a decent story, but it still blows...
...at this point, huge ass line. So, you think the manager would cut me a little break and assist me to the front of the que as a payback for the free coverage and publicity?
Back at two in the morning in my room.
Did I stay up and read some despite being dog tired?
Bet yer ass.

I was one of those kids at one a.m. crushed into a tiny bookstore in wool uniforms. I, though, was unfettered by a real job, so I got to give up, duck out of line, and run down to Kroger. Best idea of my entire life.

The wife picked up our copy whilst at Khaki Nation (aka Tarjay) today.
