I love reunions!
So, a couple of weeks ago, Roger Cross (Dark Matter‘s SIX/Griffin Jones/Kal Varrick, and every other show’s everyone else) sent out a Toronto-wide text to let everyone know he’d be in town shooting one of his innumerable productions. Last night, we finally got together for a feast of steak, sides, steak, wine, steak, Yorkshire pudding, steak, dessert, and more steak! In attendance, from left to right: Robbie, Stephanie, Akemi, Joe, Ivon, and Roger.
On the menu:
8 oz Argentinian Angus tenderloin
10 oz Ontario Angus rib-eye
6 oz Kansas Angus tenderloin
8 oz Idaho Wagyu California cut
14 oz Hokkaido Wagyu rib-eye
And other stuff.
Surprisingly, the majority preferred the Snake River Farms wagyu hybrid, a nice balance of rich and meaty. I chose the Hokkaido wagyu, while Akemi’s favorite was the pre-meal complimentary Yorkshire puddings.
For dessert, we split a slice of smores cheesecake and homemade ice cream (two scoops chocolate chip cookie dough and one scoop pralines and cream). For a guy who said he didn’t want any dessert, Roger availed himself quite nicely.[Jacob Steak House]
I didn’t get as much writing done this week as I had hoped, completing a whole two paragraphs of the two-page series overview I wanted to get done on that comic book adaptation. Also, have run into some unforeseen obstacles on one of the other projects. Hoping we can get this settled sooner than later because, as I learned on Stargate – and has been proven true through my experience on several proceeding productions – L.T.S.!
Okie-doke. I’m off to prep for tonight’s fantasy football draft, the first step in my Snow Monkeys quest to win back to back championships. My strategy going in is to lead with a dominant running back, wait on quarterbacks, and avoid any and all Patriots.
Finally – many of you are complaining that you have stopped receiving email updates from this site. I’ve tweaked the settings. Let me know if this works!
Oh, and to celebrate National Dog Day…
