Jotting down some stuff.
Going to work is actually not bad. I think I’m quite lucky having been scheduled for the Athletes Village. Here I am, walking to work and the German team is walking alongside us!
I did my first overtime (total of 16 hrs), and I plan to do a hell of a lot more. The pay is ridiculous and we are now understaffed so there’s always shifts available.
First snowfall I’ve seen since I came up. Was great, big puffy flakes.
I met my Vice Principal from Elementary School while on a lunch break. It’s been 8 years since I was there, but when she sat down I instantly knew she was someone from my past. Oh yea, I also got a haircut.
Going into the village is quite amazing. Already known as party town, Whistler doesn’t seem to sleep at all now.
Michael Smith is up here cooking for the athletes. On his meal breaks, he comes out and sits with us in the workforce dining area! How laid back is that? He’s a tall guy, and every day he comes in the same clothes. Now that’s how you know he’s a true chef.
Michaelle Jean, our Governor General was in the stage area a couple days ago. What for, I don’t know. Probably a speech. Our venue manager was cool and told us to take a break and go out, see her and take some pictures. She was so close, less than 10feet away!
We scan everything that anyone brings in through our x-ray machines, even broadcasting cameras. There’s a picture of an apparent dildo that I’ve seen too.
Living in our shitty accommodation is totally forgotten when I go boarding. Which I did twice! Thank you Olympics for there was fresh pow and tracks to be had even at 12pm.
A group setting up a big booter just beyond the boundaries of 7th Heaven.
Booter country :). See all three of them?
The drunks have already started coming in. Two nights ago, a Slovenian guy came in topless. It’s -3 at night and windy. Before he steps through the magnetometor (metal detector), he strips down to his boxers. The cop stops him before he removes that as well. Then there’s the drunk French guys who come in at 5am! Don’t the bars here close at 3am? They make the shifts go by so much faster and enjoyable. :)
Coming up on 3 weeks here and things are goooooooooood.
