Back from Vogue: 2012 Edition! (Part 2)

This post is lots of pictures.  I'll keep it down to as few words as possible!

Scene:  Andrea's apartment

Sunday, 5:30 - We get up.  No, seriously.
6:30 - We leave.  Eventually the subway comes.
7:20 - We get out of the subway.  Want to go to Starbucks but the line is HUGE!
7:30 - Our shift starts.  I'm alone on the 5th floor and Andrea's working the 4th.  We're door monitors today.
7:50 - All of the teachers for this floor are ready to go:  Shiri Mor, Rosemary Drysdale, Martin Storey, and Sarah Hatton.
7:51 - Nicky Epstein comes wandering down the hall.  She can't find her classroom.  She's a little frazzled and I show her how to get to her class.  Rosemary Drysdale is laughing, saying "She's always like that.  She always does this!"
8:00 - 11:00 - I eavesdrop on Rosemary's class.  She's the only one who leaves the door open.  I knit my Socks in Progress.  I sit on the floor since I gave my chair to one of the students.  I can hear someone taking a bath in the room right behind me.  Then someone takes a shower.  Weiiiird.  Andrea gets a partner so she make a Starbucks run for us.  Oh thank goodness for coffee.  The Starbucks inside the hotel is terrible.  Both our drink suck.  I drink it anyway.  Also, I love Rosemary Drysdale.  
11:30 - Done with my last shift!
