My daily chuckle

My co-writer Nearmiss sent me some news that made me chuckle out loud. Last I heard in late spring, Marior had shot unsalvageable footage in the production of our "Time and Space" short. Turns out, he's not done.

He wants to finish all shooting, like a seventh-hour marathoner determined to cross the finish line. He has three scenes left to shoot, and although he had it scheduled it ages ago, the lead actor walked away. So he's going to try to finish with a look-alike. And, perhaps, continue to make me laugh.

I told Nearmiss we should next collaborate on a new script: "The Making of Time and Space". She'd been thinking the same thing. Maybe we will. I like working with her. We complement each others strengths.

I have a writer's group meeting tonight. And I need to call Robert the director and pro screenwriter/airplane buff/practical next-door neighbour Shane for a meeting. Shane and I have two degrees of separation three ways: through Alex; through my evil step-sister Victoria; and through Kathy, Shane's wife.

Bonus Irrational League update:

I watched last night's Greg Maddux gem on ESPN. I don't know how he does it. Of course, sometimes he doesn't.... My pitching started to wake up last week, with five wins, three saves, a WHIP of 1.00 and an ERA of 2.74. That leaves me solidly in third, three points back of Frank in first. I'm not hopeful of moving up, but I am confident I can hold a show in the money.

.293 batting average (1st)
208 HR (2nd)
776 RBI (1st)
82 SB (tied 9th)
4.57 ERA (7th)
1.35 WHIP (4th)
58 wins (3rd)
22 saves (6th)

Forget Maddux, what about Martin!
