Sigh. How infinitely disappointing. All the research and effort I’ve put into my fantasy football teams has yielded depressingly paltry results. A double loss this weekend have put me at the bottom of both leagues. I think I need another hobby. Maybe I’ll switch focus to more practical pursuits like, say, studying Japanese – especially given Akemi’s recent decision to start learning Italian. She’s started yesterday, studied for several hours today, and has already made incredible progress. Magnifico!
Also, there’s that script I’ve been working on. You’ll be pleased – or indifferent – to hear that, following a protracted creative impasse, I’ve forged ahead and actually started to pick up steam. 43 pages down and, oh, twenty-ish to go. My aim to be extra-productive this weekend. I have a couple of phoners to discuss upcoming projects in addition to some careful consideration of an established SF property (No, not Stargate. It’s a novel.) that a production company is looking to develop into a ongoing television series. Our mission, if we choose to accept it: Come up with our unique take on the potential show. To be honest, this one is going to be a little tricky.
