Not a regular flu shot. The one for H1N1. I always get a regular flu shot, because while it might be mostly the paranoia in my head, I'm working in and out of doors in any weather, on trucks rolling scenery and costumes that have traveled all over the world,in theaters that haven't been washed since some time in the early 1970's, and putting my hands all over performers who probably haven't showered since the early 1970's either.

I thought the regular flu shot would be enough, but then it occurred to me: What if you gave Robert Redford the Swine Flu?

While it would be an absolute impossibility for me to pass piggy fever on to the sundance kid under normal circumstances, I could totally pass it on by accident if we were in the same place at the same time.

Which we will be. This time next week.

This is a very roundabout way to say I have been offered a staff position at Sundance Film Festival, and I have graciously accepted.*

Only a week into 2010, and already it's going better than 2008 and 2009 combined. Wild. I hope it becomes a trend.



*We all must give major props to [livejournal.com profile] jupiterjuniper for giving me the idea and necessary information for applying for this new adventure in the first place. Sundance is the third major festival I'll be working at (Tribeca Film Festival, and three locations of the Fringe Festival are the first two), leaving only two more major crown jewels to earn (Toronto, Cannes) for my shiny sparkly to-do list!

aloha. the DamnPortlanders community has your comment screened, so can't reply to it there.

i did not declare the bottle. i honestly think airlines/airports don't care, except at certain airports where the incidence of breakage is higher, like San Jose, CA, for people coming out of wine country. the guys at that airport were pretty adamant asking me if i had packed any wine in my bag and threatened to check things. that's the only airport that had that issue.

actually, i had that issue at the athens airport, too, but i don't speak greek so everything went fine after i yelled at people.

packed well, in original sealed bottle (no questions on labelling) and you won't have any issues.
