Productive day 有效率的一天

Yesterday, I had a really productive day, waking up at 3 to anchor the 06h00 Mandarin, 07h00 Taiwanese, 09h00 Mandarin, 10h00 China Airlines, 12h00 cell phone, 12h30 Far Eastern Airlines and 14h00 Mandarin news shows. That's a new personal record. It was Ruiying and I all morning, and while he kept asking if the station had lost all of its anchors or what, I was happy to be doing something else other than reporting rubbish news. Anchoring is a little different because there's usually a variety of news to present, from the good, the bad to the ugly, so it's not so terrible all the time. The sore throat was worth it. But to give credit to him, if it weren't for him, I don't think I would have made it through the Taiwanese segment, yesterday or any other previous days.

昨天真是一個有效率的一天。
三點起床,播了六點國語,七點台語,九點國語,
十點華航,十二點手機,十二點半遠航,兩點國語,創下個人新紀錄。
整個早上只有睿穎和我兩個撐,雖然他一直問說公司是不是沒主播了,
我還滿開心的,因為至少可以不用跑阿哩不搭的新聞。
播報除了工作內容比較不一樣,接觸到的新聞比較多元,
the good, the bad, the ugly 都有,所以不完全是痛苦,
播到喉嚨痛,但還是覺得值得的。
可是還是要謝謝睿穎,因為他不在的話,我一個人撐不過一整節台語新聞,
播到一半可能會變成國台英日語新聞,然後又要被觀眾罵了。

After getting off at 15h00, I had promised to watch a movie with the revolutionary, so we met at Vieshow to catch "American Gangster." It was alright, and since I don't often watch mafia movies, it was a nice change. However, the strongest impression that the movie left me was how I thought Denzel Washington does not make a good villain. His expressions are all of a nice guy. Him and Cuba Gooding Jr both. They are both good dramatic actors, but I've yet to see spectacular portrayal of a bad guy. Thanks Jason for the movie ticket, cookie and soy milk!

之前答應要陪革命者朋友去看電影,所以三點下班後到了威秀碰面,
看"American Gangster."。
覺得還不錯,但是留下最大的印象是Denzel Washington演壞人,說服力不強
雖然很會演劇情戲,但是他臉上就是寫著"我是一個好人",他和Cuba Gooding Jr都一樣。
謝謝Jason的電影票,餅乾和豆漿!



The last time I was at Vieshow, it was with Ann, watching "The Golden Compass," which I really enjoyed. Both times, I sat towards the right wall, close to the screen. But during the movie with Ann, our dog's cancer news came over the phone. So when I was watching American Gangster, I kept thinking that the phone was going to ring and more bad news would come. It felt like going back to the place where I had that motorcycle accident, totaled Gina's bike and almost died. Good thing not even a text message came in.

上次到威秀是跟李安(不是那個李安)去看 "The Golden Compass,"也是做靠右牆,滿前面的
但是就是那次,家人打電話來說小狗得了癌症,所以這次看電影看得好緊張,
很怕又來一通恐怖的電話。
這感覺很像那時出了機車車禍,把Gina的愛車給毀了,自己也差點死掉,
然後事後再回到同一個地點的那種恐懼。
還好很異常的,連個簡訊都沒有。

After the movie, I had 20 minutes before a dinner with arts & culture organization publicists and reporters, so swung by No Name to have a peek. There was nothing new, but plenty on sale! I ended up with a pair of brown/white pony hide high heeled flats with brown trim at 75% off. Score! Et voila.

電影看完,還有一點時間,所以到No Name去偷看有什麼好東西。
結果新款還沒到,但是舊款大打折扣!
買了一雙25折的咖啡和白pony高根平底鞋,真是賺到了。



Dinner was another business dinner and a reminder that I still had work the next day. Or I thought I did.

晚上的餐會大概就是大家能想像的那樣,
同時也把我從快樂的電影院百貨公司拉回現實,提醒我了明天還要上班。
