Well, my Pescatarian Week was a success. To those of you who don’t know, pescatarianism is “the practice of following a diet that includes fish or other seafood” (Wikipedia). I decided to give it a try and, after seven days, I have to say, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be – partly thanks to my inner strength and stalwart determination, partly due to a willingness on my part to seek out and discover interesting recipes, but mostly because I actually ended up eating meat 5 out of those 7 days. There were surprisingly few fish options at the Japanese food festival so I was forced to eat chicken karaage and a pork cutlet sandwich instead. That time we went out for sushi I had the pork gyoza starters. I snacked on the tongue cold cuts I picked up for the dogs the other day. And the other incidents were accidents. More or less. Anyway, all this to say that, after one meatless week, I really do feel healthier and encourage you all to follow in my dietary footsteps.
Wish me luck with Vegetarian Week staring Sunday!
Well, I’m sure you’ll all be pleased to heat I completed a first draft of episode #2 this morning. Yep, 2 scripts down, 11 to go! I’ll send it Paul’s way for his official “logic review” and I’ll switch gears and start work on episode #4. In a best case scenario, I’ll finish that script with plenty of time to complete one more ahead of my Japan trip in September.
Yes, since we’ll be heavy into prep during the time of my usual winter Tokyo trek, I’ve had to move up my trip by a few months. Sadly, I’ll miss out on the festive Christmas spirit that invariably outdoes it’s comparatively staid North American counterparts, but I WILL be there in time for baseball and sumo season! Can you imagine actually being there to experience the thrill of a playoff run? Or catching a Hanshin Tiger foul ball? Or having a sweaty four hundred pound man stumble onto your lap?
That could be me!
Okay, off to re-read my script. Tomorrow, I have a scheduled conference call with our Casting Director to discuss…wait for it…casting! We’ve got seven recurring roles to cast so should be very interesting.
