I think I may have pulled my heart muscle. Seriously. I suspect I may have done it during a recent frenzied coughing fit. During the day, I feel fine but at night, it feels as though I did two hundred left handed one-arm push-ups before bed.
Also feel a wicked headache coming on, the type that creeps up on you late Friday afternoon and lasts through the weekend, well into Monday…
Started the morning with an 8 a.m. appointment for Jelly. On the positive side, the ultrasound results came back clean. No masses or shadows or missing car keys.
On the negative side, her issues could be spinal, neurological, Cushing’s Disease, or a smorgasbord comprised of any variations of the the three aforementioned possibilities.
One of the half dozen diagrams the specialist drew for us during our one hour visit.
Coming up: A visit to the neurologist! More tests! And an episode so shocking, you’ll crap your pants! On the next Hell’s Kitchen!
My ensuing editing session was fairly anticlimactic in comparison, mainly because director Ron Murphy and editor Teresa Hannigan did such a masterful job on this episode. And the cast! I texted each and everyone to tell them how much I enjoyed their performances. Great, great episode!
Speaking of masterful, check out the work of Noreen Landry and her costume department. The uniform-in-progress is coming along quite nicely. Gloves, boots and, to complete the look…
One of these which cost a pretty penny because they are, apparently, bulletproof. We intend to test them tonight on story editor Trevor Finn. No, not with actual bullets, silly. Just slingshots and bottles.
One of the fun aspects of production is seeing how late you can actually schedule a lunch. “Lunch”, if you will, is six hours after unit call – so, if our day starts at 7:00 a.m., we’d be sitting down to lunch at 1:00 p.m. Or, in today’s case, we started at 11:00 a.m. and sat down to lunch – our read-thru of episode #112 – at 5:00 p.m. Now, just biding my time until dinner which, if I’m correct, should be served a little after 1:00 a.m.
