Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Scrapes and Bruises Abound

I went to a "production call" yesterday morning. Or, as I like to call it, a "get yelled at and scrape your hands call" for the play that opens soon.

Admittedly, there wasn't that much yelling, but several people were yelled at a couple of times to stop what they were doing and do it a different way. I know I'm not a person who uses heavy-duty power tools very well, such as a table saw, but I was called upon to use it yesterday, as well as a circular saw. You can see where the problems may have occurred.

My hands have scrapes everywhere, though. My left hand has a splinter just below the thumb, a rather large scrape just below the index finger knuckle, a smallish one in the middle of the finger and next to the large one under the middle finger, and just above that one are two more scrapes. On the right hand, there is precisely one scrape on each base knuckle, as well as the next knuckle up on my index finger.

I don't know how these got there, really, but I suppose the god of stagecraft has decreed that thou shalt get scrapes whenever working for more than three hours.

But more importantly, somebody brought pastries, so I am content.
