smiley - wah I’ve just found out that after spending five weeks running the library single handed that I’m going to be here on my own for quite a bit longer.smiley - wah

The strain is beginning to show……… Falling off a ladder at the theatre whilst rigging lights, and breaking something (just another toe would do) is beginning to look very tempting.

The next poor unfortunate student who asks….. ‘can I take a book out?’ will get the full force of my eyebrows.

Oh my... You have my sympathies - that would be enough to drive anyone bonkers. However, given how high one normally has to climb when rigging lights, I suspect you'd break more than a toe...

That would be frustrating, Odo. Good luck maintaining your sanity.

smiley - cheers for the sympathy. I’m beginning to feel that the weeks until the end of term are going to be a struggle to get through.

David I suspect you’re right there. We only have a small 64 seat theatre, so the drop from the stage lighting bars isn’t that great compared to most theatres. It’d probably still hurt though, and I’d be lynched if I damaged the set……
