Hey, look! It’s the new guy!
A.K.A. writer Steve Bailie, formerly of Primeval and The Bill, presently of episode #10 of Transporter: The Series. Steve, who hails from Jolly Olde England (“Smashing kippers, wot?”) got in yesterday and showed up armed with a slew of good ideas. Now, all we’ve got to do is pick one. We managed to get some spinning done on his story but, unfortunately, every time we got started one of us would get sidetracked or called away on prep-related business. And, as we draw closer to the first day of main unit photography, those distractions are just going to keep mounting.
Paul has had his hands full prepping episode #1, attending various meetings and location scouts, while Alexander forges ahead on his second script. For my part, I’ve been keeping equally busy what with my advanced reiki classes and try-outs for the Glee Project (Carl Binder, you’ve been served!). Oh, also finished a significant rewrite of my second script and plan to start addressing the network notes on episode #2 as soon as I receive the last batch. Once that’s done, I’m going to help my writing partner out by jumping on the rewrite of his script, episode #5 while he works on the rewrites for episodes #4 and #8. Whew!
Today, in addition to eating, I also found the time to call up actor Francois Berleand in Paris to discuss the Tarconi character – and, more importantly, practice my French (Attention! Le zebre de ma soeur est sur le toit!).
A gentle reminder to get your picks in for the Name Trevor’s Baby Contest. The call for entries ends tomorrow then, on Thursday, I’ll present my three favorite names for you to vote on. Name with the most votes wins! Today, Trevor was all like “Hey, this is a joke, right?”. A joke?! The nerve of the guy.
My gal Jelly has suddenly slowed down considerably over the last twenty-four hours. At the park this morning, she was barely able to support her back end. I’m hoping it’s just a case of her overdoing it after returning to the apartment this weekend. Just in case, I’m scheduling her for a stem cell booster. In the meantime, I picked up some D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) air freshener. It’s supposed to have a calming effect on dogs. Haven’t seen any change in them but I certainly feel super-relaxed.
Finally, Bento Breakfast is back on…
