I've only been working one day a week at the restaurant lately. I definitely couldn't do any more at this point, because I'm staying at school most nights until 8pm or so, and my weeks are filled to the brim with work. This week, I've gotten to school at around 7am, stayed until around 8pm, then gotten home to plan my lessons; then, I had to go to CPR and First Aid training all day Saturday for school. That 65 hours for the workweek, and another 8 yesterday for the training, and another 9 today at the restaurant. Eight-three hours of work this week! Holy shit. And that's not even counting lesson planning at home. No wonder I feel stressed out.
Anyhow, back to the one day thing... I worked today, from 9 to 6, and when I came in, the buzz of the restaurant was the appearance of this guy at our restaurant last night. Yes, Jesse Bradford (star of Happy Endings, Swim Fan, and Bring It On, none of which I've actually seen; but also King of the Hill and as Balthazar in William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, both of which I liked a lot) was apparently there with a producer and two other actresses (no one recognized them, but apparently both were hot) to discuss a sitcom pilot that would be filmed in Baltimore. It doesn't quite beat Joaquin Pheonix's appearance at our humble little restaurant when he was filming Ladder 49, and especially doesn't beat Jeff Buckley's anonymous performance there during the Mystery White Boy tour (both of which were before my time), but it was still pretty cool. The other buzz, however, was that the producer - who paid the bill after the actors had all left - was a shitty tipper. Figures.
