Whew! That was close! I was sitting in bed tonight, watching food-themed youtube videos as we’re wont to do, when I suddenly realized: “Holy crap! I haven’t blogged yet!”
To the average blogger this would be no big deal. But for me – well, I’ve been blogging daily for over twelve years and I just know that if I ever missed a day, blog regulars would be beside themselves with worry.
To be honest, I’m amazed it’s never happened before but I suppose blogging is now second nature to me, as natural a part of my daily routine as brushing my teeth or plotting revenge.
Many of you have discovered this blog over the years, no doubt inadvertently stumbling upon it in your searches for Stargate, pugs, or squash-stuffed agnolotti photos while others happened by more recently. I often think back to some of those early regulars who have disappeared over time and wonder what happened to them. Like Bugguy, the microbiologist who never missed an opportunity lecture me about the risky food I consumed, Emily my first virtual dinner date, or PG15 who won the flocking. Early followers like Carolina and ThornyRose, SueS and snowcrush, Stillhere and scarym, ShipperAhoy and Tokiya2, GateGipsy and alyburns, FlatLandDan, Ugly Pig, Miho, Nolamom, kiwigator and Sun Dancer to name but a few. And, of course, good ole Anonymous. Where’d they go?
Anyway, put your minds at ease. Here’s one more entry for the personal record books. Along with a few updates:
Tomorrow, Ivon, RT, Robbie and I head to the production offices where I will set up (ie. bring in a bottle of whiskey if I remember), talk to Production Designer Ian Brock about the plans for those standing sets, and finally pull the trigger on the crew. Also, maybe, Burgers Priest for lunch. Just like old times!
Also, got word of a second script order for my Untitled Awesome Project! The broadcaster and production company both seem very excited about it and the magic 8-Ball says “Outlook good”, but I’m going to temper expectations. Even though the series overview and pilot are, easily, the most cuckoo-bananas things I’ve ever written and I’ll be absolutely heartbroken if we don’t make a t.v. show you’ll all instantly fall in love with, I’m not going to get ahead of myself.
And, to put the exclamation point on the day, just heard back on pitches for two comic book projects, both sci-fi and both equally well-received. Follow-up call next week to discuss.
Hey, blog-readers. Roll call! When did you start hanging out and what brought you here?
