Tomorrow, Akemi and I leave for two glorious weeks in the culinary capital of the world: Tokyo, Japan. I will, of course, be continuing to update this blog with a blow by blowfish account of my trip – so fear not. It’ll be like you’re coming on vacation with me!
My sister was kind enough to volunteer to take care of the dogs in my absence. She flies in late tonight and will be settling in for what will hopefully be a nice, quiet, pleasantly uneventful stay here in Vancouver. I’ve stocked the pantry and the refrigerator with all sorts of goodies including kimchi chips, papaya, and a nice Berkshire pork chop for tomorrow night’s dinner. She’ll have free rein of the liquor bar, SUV, and the home theater – providing she can figure out how to operate it.
In addition to running around town shopping for food, I also spent a good couple of hours running around the office – and my various email accounts – looking for an old script that has suddenly garnered some fresh interest. Eventually found it and sent it off. In the meantime…
Even though I’ll be away, work will (hopefully) continue on other fronts: the show based on that SF novel (the pitch packages went out last week and, if there’s any interest, we’ll be moving on to development), that Southern Gothic pilot (I’ll be writing the script on the plane), that action feature we’ve been hired to write, and the show we’re presently developing for a broadcaster (we delivered the outline last week and are awaiting notes).
Oh, and there’s that super secret project I was telling you about. Apparently, the final piece has fallen into place and we’re good to go. Now it’s just a matter of working out the details. Sadly, we won’t get an official announcement until January – but, as always, you’ll be the first to know!
Today, I leave you with:
