    @ Orion - A Very Long Engagement (dir. Jean Pierre Jeunet) has a great wooden mechanical hand in one scene. There's also the "hand grenade" from Death Race 2000, but let's not think about that...

    Right now I'm trying to get some work in before I head off to Indonesia for 6 months and need to brush up on some work so I won't look foolish when people ask me questions about stuff I should know. Otherwise procrastinating by drawing things and catching up with people before I leave.

    Hey Warren whatever happened to you making a tv show for AMC?
    I haven't heard anything about it in a while.Is it just a slow process?

    Just a slow process.

    Screw Jeff Owens: Didn't know tattoo ink showed so well on the dark skin of nipples. Not that I'm interested, or anything.

    "Blood, Sweat and Tea 2"

    Not even "Blood, Sweat and Tea for Two"? You could add a female co-worker and get a bit of sexual tension in the cabin of the ambulance!

    Oh wait, you're not writing Mills and Boon are you? Ignore me.

    I have pretty light nipples. All of the red there is ink, not my nipples.

    This morning I made the customary bacon-and-eggs breakfast for my family. First, fried up three thick-sliced, hickory-smoked strips of pork goodness, drained not quite all the grease, then scrambled 11 eggs in the same pan -- the eggs pick up some of the bacon flavor. Add about 2 ounces of shredded cheese to the eggs just before they're done.

    Before some wise-guy points out that this explains my self-portrait posted in the other thread, I will point out that the ridiculous gut is really the result of my addiction to cinnamon rolls. Which my wife made a batch of the previous morning. I can't stop eating the goddamn things. Although I suppose I will when I'm dead.

    We're worried about our fluffy-white cat, Ghosty. She's even more overweight, proportionate to her size, than I am. As a result she isn't able to properly clean what the pet groomer calls her "sanitary area." Once a week I have to put gardening gloves on and hold her down while my wife gets a pan of hot water and a rag and cleans her caboose. We've been trying to work out how to solve this. We really don't feed her particularly much, but since we've moved to "Mars" she has shown little interest in going outside, especially during the cold months, which is most of them.

    We tried getting one of those laser-pointers and coaxing her to chase it around, but she shows no interest. We've tried other dangly-type cat toys but she doesn't stay interested long enough to get much of a workout. She seems perfectly content to laze around in her filthy-arsed fattitude.

    I know Warren's a cat-fancier and there must be many others here -- any ideas how we can get "shitty-kitty" to slim down and clean up her act?

    Just finished the first draft of my third screenplay, proofreading it right now, submitting it in about three dozen contests this year. Trying to make '08 the most productive. I met a girl at a concert, sat next to her, talked, laughed, blah, blah, blah -- usually around that time, normal people would exchange names -- I didn't. When the show ended I was pretty much separated by the waves of people.

    Thus, I'm a douchebag. I went home and immediately started writing the script based on her appearance, the way she talked, etc.

    Probably will never meet her again. Would love for her to read for the part, maybe, if I could ever find her.

    I'm contemplating ways of getting myself fired from my current job. I am the living cliche of "You'll wish you stayed in school". I am thoroughly irritated with my current position. Blah. Shoot me.

    This evening, I am

    - Slogging through 14th-century emo whining in a language that's almost English.
    - wondering if the pipes will ice tonight.
    - idly wondering whether any Giants, Packers, or fans will learn the hard way how frozen flesh sort of tears surprisingly easily when hit.

    What is it that you do?

    I am covered in dust from cleaning parts of my house that have not seen the light of day for about three years. The bunnies were ferocious but I emerged only slightly nibbled on and victorious, having discovered some long lost research books that frankly, I knew were there but hadn't really viewed them as research books for my writing until now...terrible how some things change. I need a shower.

    On one of my breaks, I picked up Come in Alone and started comparing the script of Dark Blue to the actual book, which I recently acquired, read and enjoyed. It's absolutely insane but brilliant, fast and pretty damn riviting.

    I'm a manager at a call center. I work customer service for sprint. It blows balls.

    I'll be back. I'm getting ready to cook. One of my few escapes.

    I've been feeling crazy and self-destructive this weekend, but masturbation has helped immensely (as a lady born and raised in the States, I sometimes forget how important self-love is to my sanity). I talk a little about it here.

    I've certainly heard my share of customer service horror stories.

    Pretty much a wasted weekend. Spent a couple of hours in chat here getting steadily drunker.

    Tonight I should be recording stuff. I have a review of the first 3 episodes of Jericho season 2 to send to Slice of Sci Fi, a behind the scenes piece for an audio thingy I did, 3 scripts that I probably won't do tonight, and auditions for an Escape from New York adaption (which also means watching the movie to see what people look like). But then you put THIS up so probably won't get most of that done. Won't be in chat tonight either, but seeing as I've done that a grand total of once no one will miss me.

    I also need a bath. So I'll be doing that shortly.

    Warren, when are you going to update Whitechapel radio next?

    Probably Monday.

    Nice one. It's not the kind of stuff I'd generally find myself, and I like new things so I appreciate the effort.

    The precursor to the 4am who's name I can't remember anymore was the reason I signed up for My Space (what with a lot of the music coming from there at the time). I've sinced made quite a few real life friends through that place, including my girlfriend of a year and change. So thanks for that too :)

    Just emailed Tim Bradstreet about the art print he owes me that I Paid for at San Diego Comic Con (that was over half a year ago now).

    So it is cold enough for hell to freeze over here, however I have decided to turn this to my advantage. I have made a martini/bloody mary bar on my windowsill and when I need booze I can just open my window for a moment and it's nice and cold (I also have a few ice cubes out there) thus eliminating the pesky "standing up" portion of tonight's drinking binge.

    My band played our first gig as a three piece. I have become the de-facto vocalist which was exciting yet frightening. (I would link but our old vocalist was crap and there's really nothing to see at our MySpace as we haven't recorded anything with me on vox.)

    I am going to see my favorite band from my teenage years in two weeks and basically going on a week long drinking binge in Chicago. Huzzah.

    @Alsofish, I just recently made the decision to leave my loved ones behind and move across the continent (hopefully). My bandmates are not particularly happy with me, but I know that they still love me and support me. I'm sure your sister does too. (ps I read your husband's article in the Citypages, it was pretty hilarious)
