After going over each of the 5 pages, we turn to page 6, which includes a 3% raise and about a 6% or 7% bonus. Two bonuses, technically because Q1 we were part of a different company, so they paid 1/4 of the bonus separately, and the new company paid the rest. If I remember correctly all of this goes into effect in May, though it is possible it is for the April 1 paycheck. The net result of the boni (plural for bonus?) will be about 2 month's rent, or a very large shipment of thin mints.
Snacked all day. Pistachios, pickles, celery dipped in hummus, string cheese, so instead of eating at lunchtime I went to Fry's to see if they had Thunderbolt-ready PC motherboards. Nope. And no Thunderbolt cards for the PC. This means I will sell the bargain Thunderbolt 8TB drive scheduled to be delivered Friday. And any way I cut it, it looks like 8TB NAS is going to be about $700. Not worth it for me yet.
Straight to the community center, even though rehearsals were not scheduled till 7, which means 7:20 Director's Time. I'm on stage for 2 minutes, then off for 20, then on for 5, and then I'm done till the finale, which we did not do. And again he micro-directed, so out of 2 hours I sat around for 1:40. At least he sent me home at 9 instead of 10.
We have tomorrow off. I need to study lines, especially the ones in my songs. And nap. After work, that is.
Plans for tomorrow:
fire up Goldwave and edit the Broadway recording of my songs to match what is in our version. The music director claims we are doing the original off-broadway, but I don't think so.
