By my calculations (and I was a physics major with a minor in math) we have just 4 months and 2 weeks to wait impatiently.

Movie making is such a glacial process. The interval from the first day of pre-production to the release date can stretch out for years. Why do the Entertainment Gods torment us like this?

Horrors! Well, the math anyway. I'm of the same opinion as Dostoevsky's underground man: "I agree that two times two makes four is an excellent thing; but if we are dispensing praise, then two times two makes five is sometimes a most charming little thing as well."

I think Zac needs to release more (new) pictures of himself. I miss his cute face.

Entertainment Gods Torment: a 1982 Bertolt Brecht performance of "Baal" with Bowie which is nowhere to be found (except the soundtrack) and Pacino's Wilde Salome which can only be found on Amazon, to be bought for $38.00. It looks fantastic but nothing looks terribly fantastic for $38.00.

"Mike and Dave" appeared on my local library shelves, so I (reluctantly) checked it out and watched it again. Sorry I did. One of Zac's most forgettable movies. Can't think of any attractive feature. If this were only science fiction, it would be a perfect choice for the Mystery Science Theater 3000. I can just imagine of snide remarks.

So we had a playwright from Cornell University come for a weekend workshop, and it was the single, most helpful thing I've experienced in a long time. First, it brought up from the dark place where I have repressed it the fact that my ill-suitability for short story writing is because short stories are twice removed from what I was born and made to do. Play-writing was my first love in my teen years, novel writing was my second and a derivative of it, and short story writing my third. I've written a screenplay, and while it's challenging it still allows character complexity, which short stories do not.

I worked extensively with a character I had created for my Zac Efron (he's so perfect for it, with the character created around what he can convey with his eyes), and was amazed first that he is already well thought out (I came in having all the answers to character bio without knowing it) and secondly, that working with him inspired new ideas. I'm going to stop trying to force this story into a novel and write a play, which is where it belongs.

Like its going to be published and Zac is going to act in it, lol. Oh well, I can dream.

Thank you Zac and Aoise (I can't post this anywhere at the risk of offending people in my department, lol).
