Absolutely Not Your Monkey

You won’t believe this, but I actually just cooked…

You won’t believe this, but I actually just cooked a decent meal. I made a tomato-and-ham omlet and then followed up with potatoes and a few gulps of wine. It was the first truly delicious meal I’ve ever made for myself (or anyone else for that matter).

Things have been going well lately. Work was uneventful, but everyone seems glad to see me back there after my month-long hiatus. I am meeting with another potential employer tomorrow with the hope of expanding my income via a second job. This evening I met with Tall Paul at the restaurant where he wants to film his next project, and we set up shots and lighting to see what would work and what wouldn’t. The more I use my new camera the more I love it. All of the controls are just where I want them, with very little need to go digging around in the menus. I’m also very happy with the picture. Tall Paul’s production won’t happen until next month because Dean is doing The Maltese Falcon at the moment. This upcoming project will be his third appearance on Triggerstreet in nearly as many months.

My landlord is comparing prices for new windows. Hopefully he’ll get the kind that stick out a little, thus increasing at least the feeling of space in here. He said to expect an answer within the next couple of days. It seems like I am awaiting all kinds of answers these days. My publisher can’t release my book’s media materials at the moment for filming, so I have had to postpone the FTV interview until the end of the month, if they’re still interested by then. It’s ok, though. I’m just happy the book’s coming out at all.

Got another picture up on The Mirror Project. It’s of the dedication plaque at the Danshui Port bridge we visited on Sunday evening. I’ve often wondered why people (and animals) are so attracted to shiny things. Perhaps it’s because we have been evolutionarily trained to notice changes in our environments, and in nature shiny usually means new and different as opposed to dull things that have been noted and dealt with. Not that I have any idea what I’m talking about.

I’ve been having some trouble with my archives for the Chinese blog. I can’t get them to work. Does anyone have any idea what I’m doing wrong here? If so, let me know.
