Poor Jelly. She went in for her dental today. She certainly knew something was up the moment I buckled her into the car. Check out how nervous she was…
It’s always same thing when we visit the vet. She’ll tremble all the way there and in the waiting room. Then, once I’ve checked in with the front desk, she inevitably pulls the “Well, I guess we’re done here” strategy and casually walks over to the door, waits, then throws me a look, part annoyed, part impatient, that seems to ask: “You coming already?”. At which point I invariably scoop her up and redirect her back into the waiting area.
After having another eight extracted on this latest visit, her tooth count now stands at 12! As a result, as of today, in the event she attacks, Jelly is officially more likely to gum you to death.
Big day tomorrow. I have a conference call in the morning about that horror series I mentioned a couple of posts back (a preliminary call to gauge everyone’s interest and make sure we’re all on the same page), and one in the afternoon about Dark Matter (in which we dial in another player on the increasingly widening game plan). Also tomorrow, I’ve got to start thinking about the rewrite of the horror script. I got Paul’s notes and, while I don’t disagree with any of his concerns, I’m not quite sure how I’m going to address all of them. Suggestions? Ivon, meanwhile, is hard at work on the trailer, assembling some great footage and appropriately ominous audio. We’re getting together for lunch to discuss what we’ve got so far – and celebrate his birthday over tacos and Mexican rice milk!
Well, the news that House is about to wrap up its final season means one less show on my regular viewing rotation currently made up of: House, Spartacus, Breaking Bad, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Game of Thrones, The Office, 30 Rock, The Walking Dead, Survivor, and The Amazing Race. That seems like a lot and yet I know people (Martin Gero, SGU VFX Supervisor Mark Savela) who seem to find time to watch everything. On the other hand, you have someone like Akemi who limits her t.v. viewing to a couple of show on dvd (lately, she’s been doing marathon sessions of South Park and Sex and the City).
Which brings me a little game I’m going to call: “It may surprise you to know…”. In today’s version of the game, let’s focus on t.v. I want to know what show it may surprise everyone to hear you actually enjoy. Are you a closet Teen Mom fan? Is your DVR set to record Toddlers and Tiaras? Are you still bemoaning the premature cancellation of Cavemen? I want to hear all about it. As for me: It may surprise you to know that I don’t hate Sex and the City. I actually think it’s a clever, amusing, well-written series (although I hear the franchise went off the rails with the movies). It’s not a show I actually ever sat down to watch but one that has always been on, like background music, enjoyed by the women in my life. While Ibusy doing other things around the house, I somehow managed to acquire an understanding and appreciation of the series through osmosis. Big is all wrong for Carrie! How could she have dumped Aidan? And is Charlotte just adorable?
