Awesome. But I really don't know how you stay on top of it all.

lol Will, I may have to make my son walk home from school. He'll understand the sacrifice for the greater good.

Dom Carver said...

Damn! Looks like I'll have to work a little harder.

No, make him walk TO school, then you can get a lie in.

Ahhh, the life of a true creative... As I sit reading your blog two men and a dog walk past my window, in a moment a car will pass... so do I make a hot chocolate, or have a lie down?

For me the call was from Soho, but can't go to meeting because going on holiday, to lie under an olive tree, where it will probably be too hot to drink hot chocolate.

The dog was a collie... I wonder if it's happy.

Really don't want to do another pass on screenplay, contemplate running away to hide instead, Stornanway looks nice...

Opt for lie down.

Enviably productive, but you must feel bad about failing to fit in a little self-abuse. Still; tomorrow is another day...

Dom - caller ID is good for not speaking to wife.

Phil - Dang that is a good suggestion.

Freebooter - I believe it is clinically proven that the creative brain operates better when horizontal, so excellent choice.

Mark I missed out 1530 to 1530 and 28 seconds.

English Dave said...

Dang! And Potty it was more like 35 seconds. lol
