The good news:
Everyone who came into Sonlight this morning thought we'd had a break in.
So, my chaos set decorating worked well.
In hindsight, perhaps I should have let a few more people know about my plans...
The bad news:
I didn't take any pictures.
I know. I know.
I totally planned to. I brought my camera and everything. But when you're caught up in the pressure of the moment, well, things just slip the mind. I was moving ceiling tiles, knocking over computer monitors, trashing the floor, ripping up paper, directing makeup application, running through the sequence and getting ready to set off the fire alarm for the fifth time that morning ...all before 9:30 when I needed to be done so you could contact support and not hear destruction in the background.
If you couldn't get through until 9:45... yeah, that was my fault.
I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you to take pictures of your Box Day. Otherwise, you'll be like me: Disappointed that I didn't take pictures.
Once you have pictures (and video?)--and even if you don't--submit your Box Day stories to Sonlight's Box Day blog so you can share your joy with the world.
