Can This Be True…?

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Has Panda Express really discontinued its Eggplant & Tofu dish, leaving patrons with a choice of entrees consisting of chicken, chicken, chicken, chicken or chicken? Oh, well — back to the Anthony Burgess Burger (the old In-Out-In-Out), I suppose.

Making Progress…

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Another day or so, and I should be able to get my head above water long enough to splutter out a post or two. This much I can tell you already: DOCTOR FATE is turning out to be an extremely interesting, highly unconventional series. It’ll probably be yet another love-it-or-hate-it book — I seem to […]

I’ve been burrowed in, working, and it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to come up for air before mid-week — and then only briefly. Bear with me. Or, better yet, go visit Mark Evanier’s blog, and you won’t notice my absence. Mark is as prolific as he is thought-provoking and funny. I have no […]

If you stopped by here and found the blog totally redesigned, it’s because I’ve been experimenting with several WordPress “themes”, in search of an alternative to the one I currently run.

Hour of the Wolf

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

I’m seeing ‘way too much of this godforsaken predawn daypart lately. As soon as I finished the script I just told you I finished, I learned we had an emergency situation that could only be remedied with the speedy completion of another script. (It’s crazier than that, of course, but I’d rather not go into […]

Day of the Half-Dead

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

That was Wednesday, which I spent staggering about in a state of near-stupor after an all-night writing session Monday, followed by a too-wired-to-sleep Tuesday morning and early afternoon. My biological clock is now on Malaysian daylight savings time. But I think the resultant product may have been worth it. More after I’ve had some *real* […]

And Then There Are Moments…

Monday, February 5th, 2007

…when the stars come into alignment or something, and even though your car is falling apart and your body is falling apart and some of your best friends’ lives are falling apart…everything comes together on a project *exactly* the way you always knew it should. In the end, human calamity is a small price to […]

Just Touching Base

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

My idea of an appropriate sentiment for Super Bowl Sunday. I’m inundated, but I’ll have a lot to discuss when I’m uninundated. I can’t see straight. I need to sleep. Let me know if the game goes into extra innings.
