Shit SB Says

In the publishing industry, it was a damn challenge to gather all the editors in the same room for a meeting. Artistic liberal types are not big on organizational skills. We felt like we were doing good if we could start the damn meeting 30 minutes past the scheduled fucking start time. One editor would be sent to look for another editor who was missing, and of course, the missing editor would show up in the interim and someone would have to be sent to search for the original searcher. That shit was like herding cats, and trust me, I know from herding cats.

Sounds like our rehearsals. We all show up but getting us started is a bit of a bitch. We all have to discuss what's happened in the last forty-eight hours.

That's what happens when you get creative types together. Nobody can organize for dick.

Which is why we have a director AND a stage manager.

I know the challenge where of you speak. But with the literati you have to seduce them into the dame room with FOOD fragrant fucking food. Starving artists and all that shit, play to their weakness.

Walking Man,
Food DID help. Definitely. They were only 15 minutes late assembling when food was involved.
