AND – not so fast! – ALSO Happy International Women’s Day!

Also, Happy Registered Dietitian Day!  If you’re celebrating, swing by the kitchen and pick yourself up an apple!

Day #1 of Melanie Orr’s Dark Matter directorial debut.  She’s off to a roaring start and, while I did take some set pics, they’re all spoilery so, instead, I’ll just post this shot of Mel taken in the transport van on our way to yesterday’s read-thru (and from Burger’s Priest).

Speaking of Burger’s Priest, former Stargate writer/Executive Producer Carl Binder was in town last week working on a  super secret project.  Pictured below…

Sampling The Vatican, a double cheeseburger sandwiched between two grilled cheese buns!  Has he no shame?!!

Speaking of shameless…

Yo, Four-Eyes!

Tomorrow, we name another episode!

No, really!  I mean it!

  1. All of those cakes look fabulous! Happy birthday to all — Ivon. Chris and Zachary! 🍦

    Suji makes all her wardrobe look precious. You go girl! Rock that yellow, bug eyed coat.

    Today is my 7th work anniversary at my company. I did not get any cake… just more projects, isn’t that the way?

    Bring on those episode titles!

  2. Ohhh a super secret Binder project. Best of luck to him. I was sad to see Cedar Cove go. Not to mention he didn’t have the best of luck with two shows he wrote for, which were The Messengers and Houdini and Doyle. I think he’s due some success, and I look forward to seeing what show he comes up with.

  3. So. Much. Cake. I hope there was someone there trained in first aid, wielding a syringe of insulin.

    Suji’s outfit reminds of those creatures which have large, false “eyes” as camouflage or to confuse predators. I mean, would you really want to attack something like that? Between the big eyes and the extreme cuteness, no one would want to hurt her!

  4. Wow! Wonderful cakes n Happy Birthdays all round!
    Love the last three pictures … made me laugh out long and loud

    (and that Vatican cheeseburgery thing has me all hungry again! Still trying to forget THAT donut from the other day…)

  5. WHOA! That’s a LOT of cake. Happy birthday to Ivon, Chris and Zachary!

    WHOA! That’s a huge burger. I’m interested though why they call it The Vatican. Hey Carl! Can’t wait to hear about what you are working on.

    Looking forward to seeing Melanie Orr’s episode.

    Love that sweet Suji.

    @2cats Congratulations on your work anniversary! Seven is a great number. Here’s looking to 7 more. I also just realized I overuse exclamation points.

  6. Happy Birthday Ivon!!!
    Happy Birthday Chris!!!
    Happy Birthday Zachary!!!
    Happy International Women’s Day!!!
    Those are some beautiful cakes!!!

    And glad Carl didn’t bite a finger off diving into that sandwich! Slow down man!

  7. Happy Birthday to Chris, Zach and once again to Ivon B!

    And ~Happy International Womens Day~

    to all my beautiful blog sisters. xo

  8. I agree with @gforce, Suji’s yellow poncho is a clever disguise to avoid predators …. and rain. Her cuteness factor just went up another point.

    Happy Birthday to all! That’s a lot of cake. Love Ivon’s “poster” from yesterday’s blog comment.

    @Tam: warm wishes of a rapid recovery to Dr. Jo

    @Drea: wow! What a day! Hope Patrick is doing better

  9. Wicked birthday cakes – 3 birthdays for one day! I love numbers/math/stats, so is 8 March the most popular birth date that members of the cast/crew celebrate together? If not, what date is?

    How cool would it be, if Carl Binder’s super secret project happened to also be a ‘military sci-fi’ 🤔

  10. Gforce: I thought the same thing about the insulin. 🙂

    I’d be sick but happy from all that cake.

    Happy Birthday to Ivon. Chris and Zachary!

    Thanks MaggieL80!

    When can Carl tell us about his new project?

    That little Suji bug is a cutie pie.

  11. @ivonbartokfans Maryanne — you did a fabulous job on the poster! You are always so great at doing those kinds of things.

  12. @MaggieL80 Something is still very off with Patrick. I just got a call from school and they were concerned about very odd behavior that was happening today. I told them that was similar to what I had been seeing before the seizure which is why I asked for an emergency meeting with his case supervisor on March 1. I told them if it continued tomorrow I would call his neurologist to see if we could get an appointment next week during spring break. They’ll have to sedate him to do an MRI though which is like having an outpatient procedure done.
