  • gentlemen, pay attention.

    I found Jenny this morning quite giggly and wiggly, bright and early for the morning picket. She was munching an apple. “Hey!” she said. “Why are you so happy?” “Oh!” she smiled, gloating. “That guy just asked me if I was in SAG!”

  • Picket Lung

    I know it’s important during week four to keep up the fight, the resolve, the rah-rah-rah, but here on week four, day four, I have woken up with a serious case of Picket Lung. That’s the Radiohead song Laura House and I wrote yesterday while we walked, because we picket in a very active construction […]

  • week four.

    First: does anybody know why Moveable Type now hates me? It seems to be unable to understand that “inbox, part four” and “inbox, part five,” are not the same entry. Same with “Marathon, part one” and “marathon, part two.” Trying to rename the old entries doesn’t seem to help, as it doesn’t change them in […]

  • inbox, part seven.

    [readermail] Pamie, My friend Joanne has been reading your blog for years, and when she saw you were doing a comedy show she made her fiance and I attend it. It was the one where you sang a song about M. Night Shya-ma-ly-i-an and then revealed spoilers for various movies. (The Prestige was ruined for […]

  • inbox, part five.

    Oh, man, do I love that first moment when people realize they’re on “Oprah’s Favorite Things.” Those women go batshit. It makes me laugh my ass off every single year. [db] [readermail] Pamie, I’m just a tv fan, not involved in the industry, and I have to admit, I was really confused about the entire […]

  • inbox, part four.

    Two hours into this, and I’m feeling much better. Thanks. [readermail] Hey Pamie. I admire you for what you’re doing right now, I can’t imagine how hard it is. You are very strong and brave. I’m far away in Virginia, but sending you and the rest of the writers all the support in the world. […]

  • inbox, part three.

    [readermail] Pamie, You probably don’t remember me – I met you at the first journalcon – and we had written at the time (although I’d say the last time was … oh about 7 years ago) – I still have the tae bo tapes you sent me – not that I’m using them anymore. I […]

  • inbox, part two.

    Happy birthday, Anna Beth. I miss you, old lady. [db] Keep your fingers crossed for tomorrow’s negotiations… and for tomorrow night’s episode of Samantha Who? — which moves to its brand-new time slot at 9pm (8pm Central)! (Following the season finale of Dancing With the Stars!) (My life is so very very very weird.) Want […]

  • The Forgotten Writers Strike of ’06.

    Dan wrote a piece for the LA Times about the series of mistakes made last year during the America’s Next Top Model strike that left him out on the street, holding a sign, wondering where the hell everybody went. … I don’t forget, Dan. I never wear my red shirt without thinking of the first […]

  • inbox. part one.

    I just realized I’ve had my underwear on backwards all day. I know I’ve lost some weight in the strike, but shouldn’t I have noticed that? Also, I’m starting to worry that my skin is going to become a permanent shade of pink from all the red clothing I’m wearing these days. United Hollywood is […]
