Welcome to mid-November, Vancouver-style. Cold, wet, and rainy. But that didn’t deter us from checking out the winter farmer’s market today outside Nat Bailey Stadium. Less fresh fruit, more fresh root vegetables, several baked good stands doing brisk business, and the the food trucks were out in force. I counted five in all, including one I tried for the first time: Le Tigre Cuisine offering “scrumptious modern Chinese delights”. I was expecting good and got even better:
My sole disappointment was the fact that I was too full to try the “Kick Ass Rice” – cooked in sake, with butter and dash, and topped with a poached egg, fresh herbs, and thai chili. You can have it with either pork belly or popcorn chicken.
My new favorite food truck. You can check out their facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/LeTigreCuisine
After that, it was back home for my favorite rainy day activity = agonizing over a script. I wrote the tease last weekend, Paul forged ahead and wrote the first act and a half this past week, and I ended up spending most of this afternoon trying to craft the scene in the mental institution. Amusingly enough, this is the third “mental institution scene” I’ve written in recent memory. And, in spite of what they tell you, they don’t get any easier. I’m pleased to report, however, that I got it done, ended the act, and am now trying to figure out how to attack the ensuing scene which involves, pictures, diagrams, and a (hopefully) clear as day explanation of a complex worst-case scenario.
By the way, thanks to everyone who weighed in the last couple of days with: a) suggestions for my insomnia, and b) weird J-pop/K-pop recommendations. I am officially enlightened.
So, what’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? And how go your various weekends/secret projects/scripts?
