What I Was Going to Write

You know, I started to write a post that was me pretending to have a secret insider view of what was going on in Paris Hilton’s jail cell, but you know what? That’s a lot of work that I’m just not prepared to do. Plus, every bozo on the planet is writing the same thing today, so I will be different and NOT write about what is happening with Paris today. You don’t mind, do you? I didn’t think you would. You’re all very nice like that.

Phantom the Wonder Dog had his annual physical today and we were told to give him green beans and carrot sticks as snacks because he’s a bit overweight. Sounds like what my doctor says to me, except I don’t eat a lot of milkbones and Beggin’ Strips.


Are You Ready for Leon?

In preparation for Leon (the anti-Noel, duh, June 25th), I stumbled upon some podcasts on iTunes of some awesomely collectible Christmas music in the form of podcasts. I’m busy grabbing as much of it as I can to burn to CD for next Christmas, on the off chance it isn’t here in 6 months.

My greatest find of the day is “Alan Parsons in a Winter Wonderland.” I don’t know if the artist is a fan or not, but I suspect he is. Either way, it’s bloody fantastic. Look up the podcast “B-Sides for X-mas” and just try to not download the whole damned lot of ’em.

I think I’m going to call my sister and ask her if she wants to have a Leon party this year. I think it could be pretty darned fun.


Oh Crap, It’s June 1st

I forgot I signed up for the Nanowrimo offshoot called “Script Frenzy”. I’ve committed to writing the script for a 2 hour movie this month. That’s really going to fill up my spare time, isn’t it?

I wonder what I should write a movie about?
