Thankful Friday 11.30.12

Good morning. The rain is really coming down today in the Bay. Add the inclement weather to the long week I’ve had and the result is a 0.1% motivation level to work today. I’d much rather just stay in sweats and go on a BROTHERS & SISTERS marathon. I’m incredibly late with getting into that television series… about six years late. I finally discovered its brilliance and have been streaming it while working over the past few weeks.

Luckily, what I have to work on today are fun projects. I’ll knock out my freelance responsibilities first so that I can spend the rest of my time tightening up the draft of the feature script I recently finished. I’ll also spend time outlining a new short script that I’m writing just for the fun of it. The short’s inspired by the annual agreement my wife and I have where I allow her full control of the radio so that she can listen to holiday music from Thanksgiving through Christmas Day.

I’ve missed a couple weeks of Thankful Friday, including Thanksgiving week, which I have no excuse for missing, so let me think back on all the goodies from the last fourteen days or so.

+ Spent Thanksgiving Day with my wife and mother in law. We had an awesome time and finished up the night by playing cards and drinking scotch.
+ Spent the day after Thanksgiving with my immediate family, which was nice because it seems as if we haven’t seen each other as often lately.
+ Emailed off a draft of the feature script I’ve been working on to the man who’s hired me. We’re going to talk soon about where to go from here.
+ We finally recycled our little wine fridge that hasn’t worked in over four years. There’s now extra room on the kitchen counter!
+ I read Judd Apatow’s script THIS IS 40. You can find it here.
+ Benny Gold had a Cyber Monday sale so I was able to pick up a couple things for a sweet deal.

Hope you all have great (and dry) weekend!
