long time no blog
"Where did Jack go? I miss his blog so much!"
Okay, it's unlikely that either of you two readers (you know who you are) said that to yourself. But that's okay, I don't hold it against you. I mean, after all, with a reader base this small I can't afford to alienate anybody.
Anyway, the short answer is that I spent much of my free time from work this summer producing Allison's short film, "Junior." Lots of pre-production phone calls and planning, leading up to a 5-day shoot that ran from July 26th to August 1st in Brownwood, TX (my home town). We had a great time, worked with a fantastic crew, and got some great looking footage. She is starting to edit it now, and I can't wait to see the first rough cut. I'll keep you posted. I think I'll do individual blog postings about each of the 5 days of shooting, if you really want to read about more details.
Last weekend, we indulged in the happy yuppy pastime that is going to Ikea. Due to the limited space in our crowded apartment, we had a "replacements only" rule for our purchases, and we pretty much stuck to it. We did well, got a great new rug for the living room, among other things. And... Ikea breakfast and lunch. Ah, Ikea.
It's nice to be back. Hopefully I can get back into the blogging groove now. More soon...
