Going a little stir crazy here in Montreal. But, at least, I’m getting stuff done. I’ve read four books and two graphic novels, written twenty-five pages of the new TimEscape script, and just had a call regarding that horror script. They asked me if I wanted to direct and, while interesting, it’s not something I’ve ever felt compelled to do. On the other hand, it would afford me more creative control of the project and would also help diversify my career: writer, director, producer, craft service sampler.
I think I’m coming down with something. I’m feeling tired, run down. Have a bit of a cough. Headache. Sore throat. As luck would have it, however, I have to get up at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow to accompany my mother to the hospital for her 8:15 a.m. appointment. She’s having her cast removed. On her last visit there, she waited six and a half hours. And she had an appointment!
Having lived in three of Canada’s major cities, I can honestly say Montreal is the WORST city to get sick. Waiting times are ridiculous. Vancouver, on the other hand, is the opposite. Now THAT is a city you want to get sick in!
Yesterday, I had lunch with this blog’s Chief Executive Officer in Charge of Tech Support, Fred, and his girlfriend Jennyfer. Good times!
Meanwhile, back on the home front…
