Tomorrow is a travel day and that, of course, means a sleepless night spent tossing and turning, worrying about whether or not I’ve set my alarm properly. It’s an 11:30 flight so chances are, even if I do sleep in, I’ll be able to get to the airport with plenty of time to spare. I’m only gone for a week, so I’m traveling light. That means only the barest of essentials: socks and underwear, toiletries, back-up suit, and chocolate.
I’m actually looking forward to going to Toronto for a week (which, please note, is very different from moving there), seeing Rob and Fondy (and Brie and Stewie), checking out some of the city’s top restaurants, checking out my second home, and discussing the creative on the super-secret project. To all those who’ve offered guesses: no, no, no, and no. It’s not an existing series and I’ve only seen mention of its rumored development on a couple of websites about a month back. Other than that, it’s off the radar. For now. But I’m sure it’ll have plenty of buzz once things really start to come together.
Speaking of buzz – I exchanged emails with Brad today and he reports another major hurdle has been cleared. Almost there, Stargate fans. Again, this is show business, so even the most promising of scenarios can go sideways fast (and dead-end scenarios turn around just as quickly). Nothing is written in stone but things are looking MUCH better now than they did last week when things looked much better than they did the week before. Meetings are still ongoing and I, like most of you, am really beginning to feel antsy. Hopefully, by the time we head back into the office for the Day 1 Mix of Blockade, we’ll have something more substantial to discuss. 🙂
Recent things I’ve made:
If you’ve been tracking my Recent Reads in this blog’s right sidebar (and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be), you’ll have no doubt noticed that I’ve been on a Batman kick of late, working my way through a slew of dark knight-focused graphic novels. Read some good ones, some bad ones, and plenty in between. Last year, Lou Anders suggested I check out Batman: Year One Hundred which I did and greatly enjoyed (thanks, Lou). Any other fans of the Bat out there who would be able to recommend a title?
