Make My Day

These days I am working on the FX show Rescue Me, which if you don't know, is sort of a broad comedy/drama about NY City firemen, warts & all. Yesterday we were filming in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. As luck would have it, we were doing driving shots with our fire truck & decided to take a turn down my street. I called Sarah & asked her to get to the window with our daughter Grace straight away. As we drove by our home I waved to my little girl (soon to be 3) from the window of the fire truck. She was flapping her arms like there was no tomorrow as our fireman driver hit the siren. It was a truly wonderful moment. When I got home later she was breathless in her excitement. It made my year!

This is one advantage to my work. Unfortunately, Grace now thinks I am a fireman.

Going Back to my Roots

I just got finished perusing the Craigslist board for a sublet in August. As we are renting out our apartment as of August 1 & I will be doing a job for most of that month, I need a place to crash 4 nights a week.

From the looks of things in my price range, I will almost certainly be reaquainting myself with futon living.

I know how Netflix stays in business

Just put our copy of "Vera Drake" (unwatched) back in the post today to Netflix.

We had the movie since May 25th.

Of last year.

Reason #129 why I know Moving upstate is the right idea

I spent much of the week worrying that the lettuces and herbs I had planted on Sunday were getting dehydrated by the lack of watering.

Upon arrival, they looked perfect. Crisis averted.

Did I mention the traffic getting out of the city tonight?
