I know I owe you a blog, BUT

The cast of Family Guy is on Inside the Actor’s Studio with James Lipton!!!

I know!!!

It’s a colossal event- a clash of the titans, if you will – that cannot be underestimated.

(And I had no idea that Seth MacFarlane did basically all the voices – or all the voices of note: Peter, Stewie, Brian, Quagmire, etc. etc. – until I saw that Hulu commercial. It is seriously weird to see those voices come out of real people’s mouths. It’s kind of freaking me out.  I may have bad dreams…)

This is not related to anything actually, but here's a picture of me from Thursday illustrating how truly terrible our beach trip was. I'm the gnat on the chair.

This is not related to anything actually, but here's a picture of me from Thursday illustrating how truly terrible the weather during our beach trip really was. I'm the gnat on the chair, as my dad likes to capture a lot of 'atmosphere'. The other things are trash cans and a knocked-over lifeguard chair. And maybe a dead body or porpoise or two. Hard to say.

In other news I have – at long friggin’ last – resumed editing. With a schedule of 13 pages a day (and they’re basically re-writes, so that’s no small feat) for the first edit, and 25 pages a day for the second edit – and with weekends off – I should hit my goal of total, agent-ready completion by November 1st  (a.k.a. the one-year anniversary of the sunset of the trip.)

I’ll tell you what, I don’t know what happened to me there for the last three weeks/month. Basically, my brain ran off to Vanuatu on a forged passport, and with the lack of extradition agreement, I was more or less stuck here – drool pouring freely out of my mouth – waiting for it to get back.

Thankfully, that’s finally happened (I’m back, baby!!!), and I am  so freaking relieved to be back in the saddle, back on the wagon, back to the future, and back to black.

I’m back to nature, back to school, back to the future III, back to Africa, back to bed…

You get the point, right? I’m back!!!

I had no idea this even existed. I was actually kind of kidding. Quel coincidence!

(And you’re probably starting to realize that I am a formidable Scattergories opponent. I am. I only learned that on Tuesday night, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I’m damn impressed with my own incredible talent.)

As for the book (tentatively titled The Food Machine), I’d like to utilize this forum to post an open note to the official readers – and you know who you are: Schedule an appointment with your optometrist, get your glasses properly adjusted, and get ready!!!

THIS time, you’re actually going to get a chunk of chapters to read. This weekend! And I’m not kidding. I’m not!

Game on!!!
