Um, Happy New Year?

January 12, 2007 5:56 PM


You're probably wondering where I've been for the past 3 weeks. Or you haven't. But, for the sake of my ego, let's pretend you have.

I meant to write this sooner, but during the holiday break, an actual airplane crashed into my house. Don't worry, no one was hurt, but there was a giant squid that was flying cargo, and he wrapped his tentacles around me and forced me to write a piece on how the calamari industry is rife with unfair practices. And you try typing 1000 words by nearly being crushed to death. It takes a few weeks.

Okay, so some of the above isn't true...but the first clause in the first sentence is.

My new year’s resolution was: no more procrastination. Problem is, I kept putting off making a resolution till JUST RIGHT NOW. So, I promise to keep you abreast more often of my lunacy, meandering thoughts, poignant epiphanies and any other adjective-noun combos you'd like to supply yourself.

I just realized where the whole "airplane" idea came from—I'm off to the airport to go meet with one of our networks about a series renewal. The numbers are good, but I'm still nervous. I assume, however, that getting the series picked up will be slightly less taxing and debilitating than being crushed by a giant squid.

Yes, I said "slightly."

To all of you out there, I hope that 2007 is going well and will just get better. I promise to keep you posted on how it goes for me...

Tommy

Good luck with having the next season picked up...I'm assuming the show you're trying to renew is South Of Nowhere...I hope it all works out!

Stasi:

I want a third season of South of Nowhere so bad, it hurts. Please keep us posted!
