Stone Cold

Today was not a very good day. I woke up in pain due to a kidney stone, and it went downhill from there. Have you ever had a kidney stone? It is PAINFUL. I would rather go through childbirth, at least you get a kid out of it.

Still I tried to work through the agony. I did a couple of pages on one script, got another script ready to go out, and then I got embroiled in a semi-flame war on a screenwriting other words, I pissed the day away, and I mean that sincerely.

And then tonight, like a bolt out of the blue, I heard from the director of my Christmas movie. It looks like they finally have a distributor for a DVD/TV/cable deal, sold at Cannes. And it's to a big international company. You will know this company.

I am very happy.

But I could have done without the kidney stone. Really.

Great. It's so good to see some snow in July [even if it's in a picture].

Sorry for the kidneys.

There's this vignette, in which a man with a rhinoceros planted in his back goes to see the doctor, and the doctor says:

"I think it may not be kidneys stones after all."

It is the first funny thing it came to me mind.


Hope for a quick [temporarily? definitive?] recovery.


Still waiting for Snyder's inteview to appear on the Pitchfest site. Arf. Arf.

Nice things Patricia.

I am feeling better today, but am not ready for that climb to Mt. Everest.

As for the Snyder interview, you and me both. I was very disappointed that it did not appear on the website before the fest, as I thought it would. However, I was assured that the interview did go out in the newsletter they sent out just before the pitchefest, which of course I didn't receive. Blah!

I will see if I can get permission to post it here, it's a great interview.

Oh, don't worry.

If they planned to put it out, I shall wait.

Sorry about the stone-- but happy for your film!
