First Day High

OK, technically it’s not my first day today. That was yesterday, and I was in a funk because I was totally lost — I didn’t know my duties and had only just found out how heavy the work hours are (I have to work full days on Saturdays for six months).

Today was the first day of the rest of my time at this job, though. (Yeah, I’m just looking for an excuse to use the title.) Also, today was the first time I punched in using my time card. And today was much better for me because I discovered some of the perks of working at this job.

Basically most people (including me) just can’t help being a little starstruck when coming into the orbit of celebrities. There’s a reason they became celebrities in the first place: they have a certain gravitational pull, an X-factor, a je ne sais quoi. Yesterday I was dressed down, as fitting the attire of most of the people I saw on my interview day last Wednesday. And then I was introduced to one of the major young stars these days. Let me just tell you, I felt like I looked like a Russ Troll standing in front of her. I mean, she’s pretty enough in her billboards along EDSA, or on TV on her recently concluded teleserye, but she’s a china doll in person: perfect, fragile, and — yeah I still can’t get over feeling like a troll. Ü

So anyway, shortly before I was supposed to get off work yesterday I was tasked to get a short quote from some of our artists. Today I went to see one of them before she taped a religious program at the Music Museum. Again I was bowled over by her beauty; at least this time around, I was better dressed. When I got back to the office I got a statement from one of my favorite comediennes, and she just has this winsome personality which I think is why she’s effective at making audiences laugh and sympathize with her.

I have about an hour and thirty minutes before I get off from work; the day seems to have gone by so quickly. I’m actually looking forward to tomorrow.
