APPARENTLY TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN, WHEN EVERYTHING THAT ISN'T ALREADY DEAD STARTS TO DIE....
Last week Addington and I did indeed manage to finish the telplay for Our Brilliant Sit-Com and get it off to Bravo -- on time. It's actually quite good (or so we think). I'd tell more but then it'd be stolen and sold (as if that isn't already happening -- why do you think they're having a contest???). We sit near our phones, anxiously awaiting that call from Hollywood. In the meantime Blaine has expressed the desire to shoot the thing -- with This Wooden Yogini playing the lead. Probably not the best idea he's ever had but as they say in India, Why Not? And if we do win the contest the booby prize is participation in a ten-week Project Greenlight-esque reality TV show, ugh: http://www.bravotv.com/Situation:_Comedy/
...Last night I dined al fresco with a *friend* across the street from an austere, way-too-hip-for-Lakeview pan-Asian restaurant called Ping Pong. Then we went next door for ice cream (the weather right now is not to be believed).... and noticed that the statuesque male waiters were wearing *spike heels* which put quite a swing on their collective back porch. Can you say "disturbing?" And why oh why would anyone voluntary do such a thing? (if you know the answer to that or any related questions of cruelty please e-mail me).
