TIFF08: Call it an off-day

My second volunteer shift this year wasn’t the happiest of times. This would have have been mostly due to my first talk lasting over two hours, with me actually doing something for about 15 minutes of that time. That set the tone for a day, which only had be stationed at two screenings, in addition to guarding a door for an hour. The kicker of the day was that I was not releaved of my post at the second screen until 10 minutes past the end of my shift.

The only real highlight of the day was when I was guarding the door, I saw Roger Ebert leave the theatre (and even held the door open for him).

Well, I do not have another volunteer shift until Tuedays and I will now get ready to (finally) see my first film of the festival.
