THIS is Why I'm Not Answering Your Goddam Phone Calls



The script for Episode #113 was completed this morning at roughly 8 am. Two episodes written in two weeks, without a staff.

And yes, that is Scotch. And no, I don't have a problem. I waited until 10 am.

As far as I can tell, the evidence shows that you have written an autobiography called RAGE. You may, in fact, have a problem.

Ten A.M.? You've got nerves of steel, dude.

Perhaps I missed something -- what happened to your staff?!??

Um, why would that be a problem? In fact, down here in New Orleans we would say you started late. Really a little Jack or Jim in the coffee for the morning eye opener, then a screw driver to help with the pain (whatever the pain may be), some drinks during the morning, then lunch, then of course afternoon cocktails, and then the wrap time daquiri and drinks.

No problem I can see.

Note to studio reps and producers, no, your New Orleans production office staff would never do that. Really we wouldn't. Yep, totally responsible.

When asked at an awkward social gathering one morning if I'd like a drink, I replied "Sure thing."

Not wanting to be impolite, I looked to the fellow I had been having a polite, but strained conversation with to say, "Can I get you a beer?"

"Oh, I generally wait til after noon," he smuggly chuckled.

Over my shoulder I replied, "Oh yeah, I understand. I generally wait til someone asks..."

You're a machine, Rogers. A hairy, drunken, fast-typing, creative MACHINE.

Well, golly, I could have helped you with the "without a staff" part. :-)

That is living the good life. Macbook Air. Macallan. AND a job. Treasure it.

If you haven't been to sleep yet, it's not technically early in the morning - it's still late at night. Drinking shortly after rising is a problem - what color wine goes with Cheerios?
(whatever happened to the good old days when you didn't drink??)

Not just Macallan - Cask Strength Macallan. Good stuff.

Monkey Boy thinks that's a great reason not to return a phone call!

need any help finishing that bottle?

stu willis said...

Cask Strength Macallan. Nice.

See if you can get yourself some French Oak 15yo Glenlivet. That stuff is fantastic too.

Mike Cane said...

Dayum.

I go away and not only are there more posts that I ever would have expected, but there's a picture of a MacBook Air too!

Wow.

Rock.

Please, though, don't make a habit of this for too long. Remember the lesson of Sorkin.
