The entries have been few and far between, as once again work overwhelms with the end of the school year in full swing. Bodes well for any writing aspirations I may have, eh? I must be an idea man then.
The Leaf jersey you see to the left has been put away until next season, as the Leafs fell to the Sabres in the conference finals. Ah well; 'tis been a good season. Tell me this though: It's the middle of June, it's hotter and more humid than Hades thus far this month in Toronto; only now are the Stanley Cup finals starting (which Buffalo will win in 7 games over Dallas, by the way.) As much as I love the game of hockey, the damn season is too long!
Interesting that my entry of exactly one year ago rants about my lack of journal input. Is there something in the air that saps the strength from my pen?
Had my glasses prescription renewed recently. I get so tired of wearing the damn things, I'm seriously considering contacts. Contact, singular, actually. My right eye is close enough to 20/20 that I wouldn't need one for that eye, should I choose to go that route. Tried contacts a couple of years ago, but couldn't bring myself to poke myself in the eye with my index finger. I've practised a bit recently, and think I'm ready to ditch these annoyances and go for a lens. (lense?)
Ian Davidson, a famous BBC producer, has a website called the TV Comedy College, which is an e-mail internet distance learning college in the UK devoted to TV comedy. I may enrol in the trial lesson they provide, to learn more about how one goes about fleshing out sitcom ideas. I have one that has some potential; I just need to take it from idea stage to *boom* here's a script. I received an email message from Ian Davidson's mailing list regarding a Two Ronnies BBC special airing next month. He is soliciting 'news items' for the show from those of us who have visited his website. I came up with a couple that are alright and fired them off. Who knows? Perhaps he may find them moderately funny when delivered by Mssrs Barker and Corbett, and I'll have a gag line on the Beeb.
NFL, but a nice thought to hang onto.
