I’m thinking of getting back into the matinee swing of things. There’s nothing I like more than taking in a midday movie in an almost empty theater. Hard to believe it’s been over two years since the last time. I want to go back but… is there anything worth seeing? Do tell.

Tam Dixon was somewhat prescient with this comment: “I used a rowing machine once. I must have used it wrong because I could barely move the next day.” I practically had to crawl out of bed this morning after last night’s rowing machine workout. And then, of course, because of a small fire in the building, I had to carry Suji up and down eight flights for her afternoon walk. On the bright side, the lower back pain distracts me from my frozen shoulder.
I completed my pre-polish pass on the pilot of Fronted, my SF/Kpop mash-up. I’ll go over it once more tomorrow, then deliver it Monday after which I will switch gears and do a pass on the Promise of Blood (Powder Mage) pilot. Then, as I await word on the other projects in play, I’m thinking of actually starting work on a feature I’ve had rattling around in my head for the better part of a year. I’ve already done a scene breakdown. Now, all I need to do is write it. Smooooooooth sailing, right?
So, what does your Sunday look like?

Sunday will mostly be just chillaxing!
My Sunday will look about the same as this Saturday: having fun with friends at a scifi convention (you remember: the one with the huge whisky selection). However, this time I won’t just be taking a photo with Jewel Staite, but with all the Atlantis cast members present. So it’s going to be a better than average great Sunday, I think.
I hope you also have a nice Sunday, your back pain will quickly subside, and good luck for your projects.
We tend to watch movies at home on Saturdays. Today it was WolfWalkers.
Ouch! Just remember, Aleve is your friend.
I’m thankful the fire didn’t hurt anyone. Maybe, it work the soreness out faster. I hope you’re pain free soon!
Our day was running errands, scrubbing our back porch and installing a kitty door. Lucy loves her new kitty door. https://twitter.com/jertam/status/1452027501501370370?s=21
No Time To Die was a great movie. Highly Recommend.
Matinees are great but I find nothing beats a Sunday late show for a near empty theatre. I don’t get a lot of Mondays off, but more than enough for the number of movies I generally want to pay to see on the big screen.
I’m considering Dune but I’ve read the book so I anticipate being disappointed. I really believe that TV is a better medium for adapting novels and movie makers should stick to short stories if they need source material.
Made my 1st trip to a movie theater in a couple years to see Dune. Well worth it.
Proof reading a novel for a friend. Who is proofreading one of mine in return. Won’t be able to get it done today, but I’ll get a nice start.
Spent my Sunday watching a Bollywood movie – My Name is Khan. It was excellent, and I highly recommend.
I’m sorry to hear about your pain. It is hopefully short-lived. I have chronic pain and it’s awful.
It’s fun learning about your different projects. Thanks for sharing bits of your life with us.
