It’s back to work I go!
Finding my next project is as much a part of my career as actually standing in front of the camera. In fact, it’s probably 95% of my job! Thankfully, I’ve got a number of potential things brewing – getting a film actually made is no easy feat so it’s best to have a whole bunch of possibilities lined up in case things fall through (they usually do).
I had a couple of scripts to start on last night so I made us a quick dinner –
Gnocchi ‘n’ Eggs – same recipe as before, only this time I added some frozen peas while I cooked the pasta and used 2 eggs + 1/3 cup of egg whites that are expiring soon. Still creamy and delicious and I’m wondering why I don’t make this more often.
For dessert, organic rainier cherries with some No Pudge Brownie pulled out of the freezer
Hot Cocoa while reading
I had an early lunch meeting this afternoon to discuss a few more future possibilities – we met downtown in Little Tokyo and went to Izayoi.
I got the bento box, which was basically a taste of everything.
Salad with ginger dressing and miso soup…
…shrimp and veggie tempura…
…more fish (cooked)…
…chawanmushi (a savory steamed egg custard)…
I ate basically everything (it all rocked) and about 1/3 of the rice, leaving perfectly stuffed. I gotta have Japanese food for brunch more often – I felt so energized afterwards!
The meeting left me feeling pumped as well – I’m excited about the upcoming prospects, including some collaborations on script ideas.
I love wandering around museums by myself. I used to do this all the time and should get back in the habit.
Since I was in the ‘hood, I also did some Japanese Food Shopping.
I got some soba noodles, bok choy, and this package of ramen –
Very intrigued by this non-fried/no MSG option. We’ll see if it’s as tasty as my beloved Cup O’ Chemical Noodles. Doubtful.
How was work for you today?
