So I was walking into the office the other day when someone made a comment about the the bag I was carrying, intimating it was somehow effeminate to be strolling around toting this –
Essentially, questioning my masculinity. Well, I was able to set them straight by pointing out the only reason I carry the “girly” bag is because my Happy Panda bento box won’t fit in my briefcase.
That’s a happy panda, folks, not a dancing rabbit or a tiara-sporting unicorn. If YOU’VE got a more manly lunch container, I’d like to see it.
Anyway, with any doubts about my masculinity put to rest, check out the contents of my Happy Panda compliments of Akemi…
Seriously! Have you seen a more fearsome egg? Also –
Individually wrapped oatmeal-peanut butter portions with his and hers kuma-chan stickers. I think Russell Crowe’s Japanese girlfriend makes him something similar.
A little more serious now as I turn the subject to our Exec. Producers’ Assistant, Trevor. In short, I’m not sure he’s working out. First, he has the nerve to point out mistakes I made in a recent script. THEN, he starts having reservations when I inform him that I’m holding a contest to decide the name of his firstborn child (vote here!: June 30, 2011: Vote for one of the finalists in our Name Trevor’s Baby Contest! And other stuff!). And now, he’s proven himself incapable of performing the easiest of tasks – deciphering the simple handwritten notes I made on the casting breakdown for episode 2.
Check it out. He’s unable to read something as simple as:
“Scandinavian”. Or –
“A little more dignified than Bernhardt”.
I mean – come on! Next thing you know, he’ll need me to chew his lunch for him like a mother bird.
For some reason, readers have been emailing me their questions for Jeff Lemire, writer/artist of the July Book of the Month Club pick: Sweet Tooth. All good, but it would also be great if some of you could post your thoughts on the book – and questions for its creator – here (June 30, 2011: Vote for one of the finalists in our Name Trevor’s Baby Contest! And other stuff!) as it makes gathering them up a heck of a lot easier. Speaking of which – you have until Sunday to get your questions in for Jeff, so post ’em if you got ’em!
Thanks to everyone who weighed in on the Akemi situation. She was actually quite touched by the number of people who took the time to post about her. So touched, in fact, that a couple of you actually made her cry. Nice going!
Finally Friday! Instead of sitting at a desk all day working on script rewrites, I can take a break and sit at a kitchen table all day, working on script rewrites.
Hurray for weekends!
