Akemi: The food was standing!
Me: OUTstanding. The food was outstanding.
Me: It's outstanding.
Akemi: Nobody says outstanding.
Me: Everybody says outstanding. Nobody but you says standing.

Wait! Have I already shifted out of the dark timeline? Received a message today regarding a project I have been working on with this lovable individual –
Yes, I’m collaborating with Ed the Sock (and, oh yeah, also his handler, the lovely and talented Steve Kerzner) on a high concept procedural.
Anyway, we’re scheduling a call for later this week to discuss next steps. But this sounds very promising.
Not so much promising as it is interesting – I received a message from one of my reps informing me that they were submitting me for a new sci-fi series. I’m honestly somewhat on the fence about joining someone else’s show, but would seriously consider it for the right project. And this might be the right project. Of course it will all come down to whether I (and they) feel I’m a good match. If they’re looking to go dark and gritty, I’m not their guy. If, on the other hand, they’re looking to do character-driven action-adventure with a sense of humor, then let’s talk!
Okay, AL MOST finished work on that pitch presentation I mentioned last night. One more paragraph and I am done! With my first draft.
Still awaiting notes on my outline for Episode 2 of TimEscape. I imagine what’s happened is that the executives needed to read the script twice over, so amazed were they by the fact that they had absolutely NO NOTES! Now it’s just a matter of congratulating me on a job well done and sending me off to first draft!
Lunches, lunches, and dinners! Tonight, I’m going out with on-set producer Ivon Bartok and actress Zoie Palmer. Tomorrow, it’s lunch with actor Jeff Teravainen followed by dinner with Utopia Falls Creator/EP/Diretor R.T. Thorne. Thursday, it’s lunch with Line Producer Robbie David. And then, Friday, it’s lunch with editor Jessica.
I am now one week away from my Montreal dogsitting trip.
