For lunch I went to the back lot* to an area made to look like a small Midwestern town square. I sat on a bench and proceeded to read a book, and it was quite peaceful. Then, the TV shoot that was going on down the street got out and all the workers came out for their lunch break. They started playing this amusing game of throwing metal rings into on old wood box. I didn’t mind at first, but then more crew joined them and everyone was cheering and cussing up a storm and it suddenly didn’t seem like an old Midwestern square anymore (which it wasn’t). It sounded like I was back in my high school football locker room, so I left.
*the back lot is where they shoot outdoor scenes and usually is created with fake facades to resemble another section or theme of a city.

My brother is completely addicted to an addicting website called Warfish. It is basically like an online Risk game but with more options and things you are able to do. The funny part is that he pays for this service, which allows him to make stupid board games like this using my fathers face. How random. I’m getting tired of trying to watch all the shows I’m addicted to. I think I want to start transitioning back into movies. Fist to go; The Nine where nothing has really happened in 5 weeks.

I was a boy scout for Halloween. I dusted off my old uniform, put on some bells and whistles and was set. I got a lot of compliments, but my wife was ravishing as a Geisha! Woot. My boys were a cow and a Bumble Bee, as you can tell, there was really no rhyme or reason or theme to our madness. I was going to be a ninja (similar in ethnical origin to a geisha) but it would require the purchasing of too many materials for one days use. I was gone in Providence during all the Halloween parties, trunk-or-treats and other events. It made me kind of sad. I live for those family type events. Providence was pretty though, maybe I’ll post some pictures….um, or not. Is this a boring blog or what? “Studio 60” will not be cancelled…just heard that.
