I lost track of what week it is


IMAGE COPYRIGHT RENO GAZETTE-JOURNAL

It's not that I haven't learned anything. It's just that I haven't taken a day off for 17 days straight.

1. Some people still respect newspapers. They are usually retired elderly women, but they are out there.
2. Single? Put on some Wranglers and a cowboy hat and head out to the Reno Rodeo. If you don't look like a poseur like I did, you might be able to pick up some "buckle bunnies".
3. Reno has the highest concentration of people who see me carrying around two D2Hs and immediately assume I am working for a TV or radio station. They are usually disappointed when I say I work for a newspaper.
4. Sleep is overrated.
5. It's really nice to talk to someone who understands what Aksarben means.

more importantly, i might be stupid, but i don't know what a "D2H" is....

17 days straight is ballsy. good work

you certainly have a face for TV news. not an anchor reporter...but like and editor or producer, sure. somebody, you know, behind the scenes.

I'm on my 17th day, too! Weird. I got bitched out by an editor for working too hard, so I cam e in at noon today. It didn't work though, because now I have to work late tonight.

it wasn't the wranglers and the cowboy hat that got you all the buckle bunnies... it was most definitely the fabulous pink shirt.

This looks a lot like the picture I took of the Pacific Wheel in Santa Monica while I was in CA. Good stuff. :)
