a woman walks by a big drawing. There’s a writer sitting at her desk, with a fantasy world all around.

Busy weeks, again. No update last week, both have been condensed into this one. Sorry.

  • πŸ’ˆ I visited my barber, as the time to get another haircut had arrived. This time we went for a “Psycho”. And a request for some (very light) video work: Clips for the barbershop’s Instagram account. I said yes immediately, even though video is really not my think. I just can’t say no to this guy. Went back there a couple of days later, and we shot the clips. He liked them.

  • 🍺 After leaving the barber, on that first visit, I walked by a beer place. One that is owned by another kindergarten father. Turned out to be quite the afternoon. We drank a few beers, I got to know a sticker artist who I’d met through his work, and ended up picking up tinyMovieStar a little later than usual. Fun. Must do again.

  • πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨ New avatar week. Andy came through. So much, that I ordered again. I now have two avatars from the same artist. Or three? He’s taking over my timelines, a lot of people are now sporting one of his cute pictures. What about you?

  • πŸ‡«πŸ‡· The French assignment. Not as successful as I’d like, but… Done. I wanted to have more time available for the portrait shoot, but they spent that time having lunch instead. Anyway, sent.

  • πŸ‘°πŸ» The TV Gang got back together. For another wedding show, no less. One of those 14-hour work days, with multiple locations. Lots of driving around, lots of waiting around, and a few shots at the end of the day. All day away from the movieStars. I did enjoy being back, as set photography is something I really like, but the amount of hours, vs. the pay I get, does not compute.

  • 🍿 Blood & Gold. Meh.

  • πŸ“Ί Unstable (meh US show), D.P. (fun Korean show). Finished Succession. Finally. Speechless.

  • πŸ“š The yearly book fair is back. This is the big one, the one in the park. The one we visited as kids, decades ago. I still remember the thrill of going there, and getting a ton of books. I couldn’t wait to get back home and read them all. Obviously, I’d love tinyMovieStar to have that same experience. She does love books anyway so… what could go wrong? The weather. Hunger. Sleepiness. A lot of things, it turns out. She did have fun, for a little while, and we did get those books. But had to leave, face the rain on the way home, and get ready for Plan B: welcoming more kids to our home. By then sleepiness had turned into craziness, and we endured hours of what looked like kids on drugs. Uff.

  • πŸ’Š I can’t seem to find a way to feel well. I mean, 100% well. At the moment there’s mild ear pain, a sore throat, and something in one of my eyes. Maybe leftovers from all the things tinyMovieStar had last week. Nothing crazy, but annoying enough. I’m at 67%, maybe. I might have to visit a doctor.
