Less Than 2 Hours To Go…

Alright – all we can do now is wait. The academy folks have locked down our workspaces and the security sweep is in effect. The rooms re-open at 2 PM, showing starting at 2:30. We are set and ready to go – thanks to the hard work of our tech guy who has been working around the clock to get our IT needs in place – kudos to him! Now it’s just about putting on our own formal attire – we too have to look our best!

Our teams prepared and ready for action:


Our team meeting is set to begin at 1:30 PM. This is my favorite part of the day. As a group we go over the workflow and expectations, basically making sure that we are all on the same page. It is also a great morale boost. The team is amazing and we feed off each other’s energy to get us through the night.

Not much else is going on (yet). Jan Carl (the reporter) had a bit of trouble getting into the hotel. Security is TIGHT here and without names on list, it takes a bit of negotiation to get anywhere. Of course she made it in and is getting ready to host for ET from the red carpet. The seat fillers (hundreds of them) are getting into their places, other than that we are still in the calm before the storm.

More excitement to come later…
