Our Dark Matter rewatch resumes…Hlfcteyp-large

Clear your schedules!

So, what else is going on?  How are you all weathering the storm?

Akemi, Suji, and I are keeping busy.  Akemi is looking to start a balcony garden in the coming month and, after watching a bunch of youtube videos and consulting a true expert (actor Marc Bendavid), she feels confident enough to place an order with our local gardening store.  She has already gotten started on some herbs (thyme, basil, chives, green onions, and pea shoots) but plans to expand into potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, onions, micro greens, and strawberries.

Development work continues on my end.  Received feedback on that web series adaptation and am spending the weekend composing notes on their notes.  I also received notes on my first draft of the second script for my sci-fi series, TimEscape.  Will have to ponder those tomorrow.  Also, I have a call this week about a pilot script I had left for dead a while ago.  Hey, Jeff, remember Southern Gothic?

Yesterday, I joined my friends Nigel, Nadia, and Bruce for a Netflix Party screening of The Night Comes For Us, a joyously OTT Indonesian action flick in the spirit of The Raid and The Raid 2.  We’re considering making this a weekly thing.  If so, eventually, I would recommend the sequel to the greatest zombie movie ever made…

For her part, Suji seems to have adjusted to the single walk routine, settling for a big morning walk and a lesser scamper around the apartment in search of the kibble I hide all over the place.

Tomorrow: It’s Suji Sunday!

  1. Can’t wait until Monday! That will be awesome.

    Nothing new around here – same old, same old. I do have to go to the grocery store tomorrow after two weeks! I’m going on the morning when it should be fairly quiet, so I’m hoping it’s not too much of an adventure.

  2. A balcony garden is a wonderful idea. Look into basil and marigolds with the tomatoes. Marigolds for pest control and basil for flavor. I would love to see the pictures of the garden.

    I love using basil to make pesto and freeze in small portions. Great for a quick addition to soups/sandwiches.

  3. I have two planters of strawberry starts on my kitchen table, growing their feeder roots and waiting for the unpredictable Rocky Mountain spring to fully transition away from winter so they can go in the ground. I have herb seeds, sunflower seeds, and wildflower seeds. A friend dropped off bags of potting, raised bed, and garden soil. She has livestock, so had to go to the ranch store anyway. I have mulch. It is too early to put anything in the ground, and I neglected the garden entirely last year. The overgrowth is pretty awful. Needs tilling, that will not happen. I will turn what I can by hand. Thankfully most of the flowerbeds have annuals, and are manageable. The raspberry canes are’t too bad, although the red currant bush is a wild thing. The irises are spreading like mad, in slow motion.

    I am giving myself plenty of time, not only because I have trouble with the physicality of the work. but the emotional burden is still extremely heavy. That was Larry’s kingdom, and he loved working in the yard, making it nice for me. I can see his loving hand in every detail.

  4. Nope. Not into Dark Matter or Zombie movies. Nothing personal, but horror is not my cup of tea. On the bright side, making good progress on Stargate Universe Season Five (Fanfiction) And yes, I have decided what the signal means, but I’m not going to say. You’ll just have to read. Muhahahahaha !!! Lightning and thunder as Ruben twirls his mustache.
