LIFE

June 27, 2007

So things are good in LaLaLand for Gilliebean and Fritch. He goes to work daily to wrestle with logos and little animated girls with large feet. I work on my script(s) and sometimes my lattes or other espresso beverages, but most often I’m in class just below this sign. Coming up very soon, I’ll be interning three days a week at a talent/literary agency! But other more exciting things are happening at Club Fritch

ONE CHIP AT A TIME

June 26, 2007

My favourite chip brand – KETTLE – has developed a line of tortilla chips.

I just noticed on their bag that it says:

“Kettle Brand Tortilla Chips. Bringing people together one chip at a time.”

That’s nice.  I like that.  That’s a “brand” I can get behind. 🙂


SPONTANEITY

June 26, 2007

Right after church on Sunday, Ryan said, “Let’s drive to San Diego!” So we did! FIRST, I wanted to take some photos at the school where we meet because I was inspired. You can see six of them on my flickr site (thanks Jazz!)! THEN, we left straight away for San Diego. Didn’t stop for gas, coffee, OR lunch! We hopped on the 10, then the 710, then the 5 and didn’t stop until we took the exit for Downtown SD.

This from a lovely little cafe near our apartment. There’s a great big table near the back. Ryan and I love it. Free internet, great lattes and Chocolate Mexicanos! Yum!


A SLIGHT NEWFIE ACCENT

June 25, 2007

Celtx.com has a great little freeware program for screenwriting and scheduling. They also allow account holders to publish their pro-jects to “Celtx Pro-ject Central.”

The great thing about Celtx is…

…they are in Newfoundland!

Listen to the v/o on this video to hear a deliciously slight newfie accent.


HUH DATES DUH.

HUH does stuff.

DUH says I’m not smart.

LARRY AND PARIS, UP IN A TREE…

June 25, 2007

T—A—L—K—I—N—G!

Can you believe it? Paris’ experience is worth the WHOLE hour on Larry King Live!

P.S.  I know Ryan will be chagrined that I catagorized this as news.


YOU KNOW A SCRIPT IS GOOD WHEN…

June 22, 2007

…you laugh out loud reading it. I recently, for reasons I will not disclose, was interested in reading any episode of SCRUBS. I googled the script and found the PILOT!

Here it is for download. Scrubs Pilot Download

I remember watching the pilot and being impressed that its highly intentional and heavy-handed humour was executed so deftly and with such grace. It’s very interesting to read.

Enjoy!

P.S. Here’s the Imdb of the writer: Bill Lawrence III.

We Apple Geeks seize every opportunity to mock microsloth. It’s fun!


TARTAR SAUCE!

June 21, 2007

So Ryan was preping the fish and I was making the salad and preping the broccoli when Ryan asked, “How do you make Tartar Sauce?” Being the avid googler that I am, I quickly looked it up. “Do we need mayo?” he asked, “because we don’t have any.” “I think we can use yogurt,” I volunteered, before I’d found the answer. But I was right…

And our Tartar Sauce is so fabulous, I HAD to share the recipe! It’s modified from this recipe:

p6210015.jpg

1 cup yogurt

1/2 cup relish (which, astonishingly, we had)

2 tbsp lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

Enjoy!

PREPUBESCENTS

June 21, 2007

Apparently the only girls with a passion for fashion (the BRATZ), are doing a live action movie! My question is:

Are they going to wear prosthetic feet?

SERIOUSLY!

And like, PS, I totally think the telling thing at the end of that fab trailer is the “OMG!” – it’s SOOO hip.

WEB 3.0

June 20, 2007

This morning Ryan asked me what Web 3.0 is… My first thought was, “Surely we’re not there YET!” My instinctual fear was that Web 3.0 would be the end of my youth; but perhaps it is the beginning of my future. A changed perspective.

This thick wiki article outlines lots of proposed definitions for what Web 3.0 might end up being. End up being – that’s the key phrase. Thankfully, it seems that although Web 3.0 may be just around the corner, it’s not quite here yet. Which is good, because I’m still trying to get those I love to join me in Web 2.0 land. And while Ryan is reluctant, yesterday I was successful in getting my momma to join one of the ultimate Web 2.0 networks, Facebook.


BARGAIN SHOPPER

June 18, 2007

p6160030w.jpg

I went downtown to the Fashion District on Saturday with bunch of awesome girls from the Act One EP’07. I got all the fabulous stuff you see in the picture for just $26 usd. A watch, 4 bangles, a pair of sunglasses, a skirt, a tank, and a snazzy pair of shoes!

Later that night, some of the guys from Act One (and Ryan) joined us at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary for a movie on the lawn.  Creeeeepy!

More pictures of the day can be found here


COUCH POTATOES?

June 18, 2007

Ryan and I saw the movie SURF’S UP on Friday night. It was a VERY GOOD MOVIE! In other news, they had a lifesized THE SIMPSONS MOVIE “poster” in the lobby. Ryan and I couldn’t help ourselves…

4,427 miles in the direction of Greenland, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.

It’s pretty there. 🙂
