Next Monday I start my new gig as the Lead Assistant Editor on a reality show. One that my mother loves and my boyfriend hates… so I guess that’s fair. I will be making more money (yay!) but working 10 more hours a week (boo!). That’s like more than an additional day of hours. And because the reality TV industry isn’t about the whole having unions things, my contract stipulates that OT doesn’t begin til after 50 hours.
Need to set aside time to write. Time in which I’m not allowed to, say, go online at all. This week would be good, since I’m losing 10 hours a week starting next week. The rough thing about 10 hour days is that that’s 2 meals you’ve got to do at work, which is difficult to do. At least on film sets, food is provided. 10 hours, plus an hour to get ready in the morning, an hour of commute, an hour of errands or cooking, 8 hours of sleep, leaves… 4 hours. No more 1 vs 100 on Xbox live for me.
Also, the online test to qualify for Jeopardy is happening this week:
East Coast: January 26th at 8pm ET
Central/Mountain: January 27th at 8pm CT/7pm MT
Pacific Coast: January 28th at 8pm PT
Also wik, Judge Vaughn Walker of the Prop 8 trial might be the funniest human being of all time.
Also also wik, I am debating posting the Opening Scene from my old Maleficent script. I would essentially just have to type it up, but I’m not sure there’s any interest and it’s fairly ridiculous. And no one seemed to be NEARLY EXCITED ENOUGH about the fact that Tim Burton wants to make a MALEFICENT movie. SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS.
Wi not trei a holiday in Sweeden this yer? See the loveli lakes. The wonderful telephone system. And mani interesting furry animals. Including the majestic moose. A moose once bit my sister… No realli! She was Karving her initials on the moose with the sharpened end of an interspace toothbrush given her by Svenge – her brother-in-law – an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian movies: “The Hot Hands of an Oslo Dentist”, “Fillings of Passion”, “The Huge Molars of Horst Nordfink”… Mynd you, moose bites Kan be pretti nasti…
It seems that Tim has a hankering for SLEEPING BEAUTY… but not really… You see, he’s going to tell the story from Maleficent’s point of view. In fact, it’ll be called MALEFICENT. She was always the most interesting character in that story, but we never knew why she hated those three little fairy wenches… or what indignity she suffered at the hands of Aurora’s parents. Yeah, I’m on board… if only it ends with Maleficent with a sword in her heart in dragon form. Cuz that’ll rule. Think about how long this plotline was carried out over. She has quite a tale to tell. – Ain’t it cool
AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! Sleeping Beauty from Maleficent’s POV as told by Tim Burton. I would just like to say “DISNEY!! I have already written this and it is amaaaaaaazing!!!!” I even have pictures!!!!!!!!!! //end freak out (but not really)
I would show you pictures but apparently all my shit from Geocities got erased without anyone telling me that that was going to happen. I think I have a back up somewhere, but DeviantArt isn’t working, so all I can show you is a tiny thumbnail. ARGH, now I’m angry.
