I received the following email from my former writing partner last night:
“Cleaning out old boxes, I found this. You may remember, these were the very helpful notes you took during our call with Syfy regarding the Atlantis episode “Inquisition”. The significance of the flying frogs eludes me to this day. Still, in many ways, it remains one of your strongest works.”
Wow, this takes me back. Note the attention to detail. The dueling insect armies. The mosaic wings. The melancholy frogs. I don’t remember much about that actual notes session, but it obviously went very, very long. Still, one thing is clear. We can pinpoint the exact point where my career peaked. It’s been all downhill from there.
Akemi: On Game of Thrones, who’s the dragons’ mama?
Me: Daenerys Targaryen.
Akemi: If I was Naderys, I wouldn’t use my dragons to fight. I’d open a pizza shop and just have them fire pizza.
Hey, remember Anne Devereaux?
