Bonding

The best moment of working today was when my boss was talking about getting alerts from Uber sent to his Apple watch and my client looked over at me with this hilariously pointed side-eye. It was perfection in a look, and summed up a shared feeling.

Second best was the actor--who is a little bit sexist and rolls his eyes when I call him out on his bullshit--called my other client (the CEO of the fucking billion dollar company) "girl" in passing and had to sputter his way out of it as she not-unkindly was not having that shit. 

Man. Not all leaders of a particular sex are the same, of course, but there is a marked difference between the feel and culture of this company--with strong female leadership--and the myriad companies who are primarily "boys' clubs" with only perfunctory female roles. 

I have more things to say about finding role models, leadership styles, etc., but yesterday I worked until 4 a.m. and then I worked today from 8 a.m. to... well, I'm stopping now because I just cannot anymore. So 8 a.m. to 3 a.m. 

Show tomorrow. Call at 7. 

It's one of THOSE shows.

Nothing can describe the joy I felt when we were reading through the script and the actor stopped to ask a question about it and my client shot back, "JUST READ THE NEXT LINE. It's right there."

You have no idea how many times I have said that. 

"But what about xyz?"
READ THE NEXT LINE.
"Oh, there it is."

KEEP READING.
