April 17, 2021: The doctor is in. And she brought bento!

Even though her birthday isn't until tomorrow, Akemi continues to celebrate in the lead up to the big day.  This afternoon, our friend Dr. Blackjack gifted her (us!) a double gorgeous bento courtesy of Kaiseki Yu-Zen Hashimoto.  Each box contained a multitude of varied culinary marvels reminiscent of the osechi-ryori Akemi was desperately trying to…

April 15, 2021: Suji’s haul, my Fantastic Four fancast, Yes/No, and more from the Stargate vault!

When this was delivered this afternoon, my first thought was that Suji had somehow gained access to my credit card and manage to order herself four bags of freeze dried salmon treats, four bags of freeze dried chicken treats, and two bags  of beef liver treats.  But then I realized "Wait.  No.  She doesn't know…

April 13, 2021: Oops, almost forgot!

Whew!  Almost forgot to blog! https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1381971596760481797 I mean, it's kind of crazy.  Every week, a small business shuts down and, every week, a new cannabis shop opens up.  Or I see an announcement of a new condo development.  It's kind of depressing. In the unlikely case you missed it, check out yesterday's Dark Matter Monday…

The more you know... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1380987860711583746 Thanks for the updates on your respective vaccine experiences.  Here in Toronto, I heard word that we'd have to wait until July for our first shot.  Then I heard that my age group would be eligible for the Astrazeneca.  Then I heard my hot zone area code would be eligible…

April 9, 2021: Work, vaccines, fried chicken breakfast sandwiches, and Stargate!

And another weekend is upon us...which, frankly, won't feel all that different from Monday and Tuesday or Wednesday and Thursday.  I'll be continuing my rewrite of the Project F pilot (Tease and Act 1 complete), reviewing my Powder Mage pitch, working on six new pitches for two possible homes, and finally getting around to reading…

April 2, 2021: My Plate is Full!

Today's pitch went swimmingly.  The executive to whom we pitched was engaged, asked all the right questions and we, I believe, offered all the right answers.  I followed up the meeting by forwarding him a written overview of our pitch and...that was that.  Now we play the waiting game. And I redirect focus to the…

April 1, 2021: Today blog entry – 100% practical joke free! I think.

https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1377750192116674563 Lol.  Good one.  They really had me going until I looked at the price chart and saw that they expected struggling small business owners to cough up about 3k for a sticker. Today's Yes/No... https://twitter.com/BaronDestructo/status/1377590597154914307 Okay, I'm going to be honest.  I have no idea what Tajin is. Today's lunch!  According to Akemi, she…
