Thanks for the plumbing advice. I really should have consulted with you all from the start. A half dozen frenzied jams of a handy plunger and the blockage was instantly dislodged, allowing the trapped water to finally run free – and right through the hole I put in the pipe with that coat hanger.
If this incident has taught me anything (besides “Try a plunger first before attempting to use a coat hanger to dislodge a blockage”), it’s that I don’t give you guys enough to credit. If I’d asked for your opinions sooner, that red bucket wouldn’t be a permanent fixture under my sink now. Now I regret writing all those Dark Matter scripts without your input!
Hey, guess who I ran into yesterday? No, but close! I crossed paths with Julie Benz, Defiance‘s Mayor Amanda Rosewater, and we ended up talking about our respective shows, our upcoming premieres, and unicorns. Yes, unicorns. Anyway, Julie is very active on social media, spearheading Defiance‘s social media campaign, and she had some great advice on rallying the online fandom. A lot of it depends on you, dear blog readers, so I’ll be counting on your in the months ahead to help get the word out.
In the meantime, I’m thinking a live after-show would be great, a little online get-together where viewers can interact with the cast and crew, and get the behind-the-scene scoop on the series. I floated the possibility and received the following, brilliant, response on twitter:
