Today, Akemi combined my love of booze, chocolates, and not actually doing anything to come up with the above-pictured bourbon truffles. And then, as if that wasn’t enough (and it really wasn’t), she came up with these:
Yep. For those who prefer the lighter touch, check out these Tennessee Honey Whisky truffles. Well, check out with your eyes – unless you happen to be in the neighborhood. But trust me (and why wouldn’t you?), they were delicious.
In addition to eating chocolates today, I also got some work done on my various projects. Yes, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as finishing a script. No, wait. I think there IS something more satisfying. What was it? What was it? Oh, yeah! Selling a script and having it green lit!
The worst thing about this business is all the waiting. And it’s not just my impatient self complaining. Even my dogs are getting fed up. Don’t believe me?
I keep telling them: Don’t be so pessimistic. Things will all work out.
But, just in case they don’t, I’m preparing to do a lot of reading this year…

Finally, we’ve got a big playoff football weekend ahead of us, have we not? Who do you all like? As much as I would love to see the Saints advance, their absolutely terrible performance the last time they played Seattle doesn’t give me much hope. In the other NFC match-up, everybody is talking up the 49ers, but I’m going with the Carolina Panthers, a team that has gotten consistently better as the season has progressed. Over in the AFC, as much as I’d like to see the Chargers pull off another upset in Denver, I can’t see it happening against a focused Denver team. And, over in New England, Tom Brady has MacGyvered his team a #2 seed with a bunch of second rate receivers, guts, and elastic bands. The Colts are more than capable of pulling off the upset, but I’m wary of betting against coach Belichick with the extra week to prepare.
