“Somebody stole my car!”was my first thought as I stared out at the desolate lot. A single automobile sat out there, occupying the spot formerly occupied by my Durango. A Durango too, but cleaner, shinier, and less salt-encrusted.
Yes, as with yesterday’s incident involving that homeless woman who turned out not to be homeless at all but actually my friend Tara, I discovered that appearances can be deceiving. In this case, the guys in our Transport department had whisked my car away, washed it, filled the gas tank, and then returned it. They’re like shoe elves – but for cars!
THESE GUYS –
Transport Coordinator Tony Bifano and…
…Transport Captain Tom Chapman.
They’re the best! I predict another batch of bourbon cookies in their near future!
HUGE day on the bridge today. Our biggest yet! Director Paolo Barzman was in the thick of it all, orchestrating the action like a maestro of mayhem.
Prep continued today on episode #104 with director Amanda Tapping. Today, we discussed stunts, locations, and art department builds. It’s been a treat watching Amanda in action on the other side of the camera. That upbeat attitude and professionalism I remember so well from Stargate typifies her approach to directing. She’s inclusive and collaborative but percolating with great ideas.
Today, I was telling her about the time I brought my aunt to the set of SG-1. We watched a take and, the second the director yelled “Cut!”, Amanda walked right over and introduced herself. She chatted with us for a few minutes, then went back to work. My aunt still recalls that meeting with fondness and, to this day, always asks: “How’s Amanda?”
Vince and Rocky are on the wrong show. They look like they just walked off the set of The Walking Dead.
Hey, it’s time for another round of “Guess Who’s Quarters?”:
To those of you asking: The dogs are great. Lulu and Jelly are on the mend. And Bubba is still crazy.
Enjoy this short video of Lulu eating kale chips.
And let’s finish off with our our semi-regular Sock of the Day instalment:
