To(yester)day I am grateful for the community of this crew. There are a few new folks in the mix, but mostly this is a crew of people who've been working here for years. We know each others' histories and stupid jokes, and have a level of respect built in over many shows. When I walk outside for break and am greeted with "hey boss" it's a comfortable, affectionate thing; and when someone else perks up like they're being addressed they're immediately corrected, "no, you're not the boss, SHE'S the boss". They let me bum tech week cigarettes, and we all keep each other sane.
