My Day: Director's Commentary

April 8, 2004

Today is the day to call a 13 year old "ma'am."


I've been renting a bunch of DVD's lately and one feature that's kinda interesting is the director's commentaries. Well, it's only interesting if you care about the film and how it was made. Otherwise, it's basically like sitting through a movie you don't like, except that you're not watching the movie because the knuckleheads who made it are yammering away.

But otherwise, it can be sort of neat. Why does it have to be limited to DVD's?

My Day: Director's Commentary

7:30 AM: Woke up, let out the dog, had breakfast.
I totally remember doing this. Wow. It seems just like yesterday.  I had some Special K Red Berries. I think that that was a good choice.

8:30 AM: Left for work.
Traffic was ok but there was nothing on the radio. You win some, you lose some.

9:30 AM: Got to work.
I also made some coffee.

10:30 AM: Work.
I may have also sent some emails.  

11:30 AM. Still working.
You know, at this point I have to give some props to my co-worker Kim, who was an indispensable part of this portion of the day. Actually, that's not true.  I didn't really collaborate with her that much today. But she was there.

12: Lunch.
Tuna salad, crackers and a cookie. Great catering. From myself. Actually, I got kind of sick of the tuna salad part of the way through. But the cookie was good. Here's a little something you might miss, but that I find extremely funny you might not know unless you're behind the scenes. I got it free from the real estate company who left some for our office.  Oh, wait, I guess it's time to comment on the next part of the day.

1: Allergy shot.

2: Work and listening to baseball game.
The White Sox won, which gave me the inspiration to make it through the rest of the day. I really tried to channel that sort of winning persona to make it through the rest of the day. I've had the image of a White Sox win in my head for days now and it was great great to finally see it played out in real life.

3: Work
Yes, we're back to working.

4: Work

5: Left work
Well, not really, more like 5:15 but you wouldn't know that if I didn't tell you, did you?

6: Got home, did some laundry.
This is kind of funny. The dog that I let out at the end of the day was played by my dog in real life. And he didn't even use a stunt double! They just walked out there and did it!

7: Had dinner.
Now here's an interesting story about how I had this dinner. I went to the grocery store, brought it home, and then heated it up. Only in Hollywood!
