say 'cheese' (but don't mention the oyster).

D id I get a photo of me and Wee Cal in San Diego? No, Anne, I completely forgot. How could I possibly forget to take a photo of me and the apple of her eye on holiday in sunny California! Look, I'll email around and see if I can find one. Charles Brownstein took this one on Thursday. He regrets it's not a good photo, but we don't look any more out of focus than Charles himself did on the night.

Film producer Bill Horberg might have a better one from Friday, and it may be in focus since he is a teetotaller. In an email titled 'The world is my oyster ' he told me he woke up with a bad case of food poisoning and a doctor had to be called. Since I had half the oysters , it must have been a prawn that got him. I told him his trouble is that he isn't drinking enough beer.
My pal Wayne Beamer has one from Sunday, and I'm looking very tired. I went and upset the dear fellow and I deserve all and more that he says about me.
Unless somebody else out there has one, that's the lot.

Dormant scripts get graphic novel treatment- As movies based on graphic novels such as "300," "Sin City," "Road to Perdition," "A History of Violence" and "Stardust" become more common, frustrated Hollywood filmmakers are taking dormant screenplays and commissioning graphic novels in hopes of boosting their onscreen potential.
And on her blog two days later: : Campbell's Black Diamond Detective Agency, with photo of me and Bill, presumably before he knew about the prawn.

I remember back when he WAS only the wee one... the little boy with a Batman costume whom Erin and I teased... back when he had the slicked back hair and pinchable cheeks.

Oh god I feel old.
I'm going to go yell at some no good young punks now.
Better make sure I don't break my hip!

Of course, now, we'll all wonder what did you did to the poor fellow (Wayne Beamer) that he should be so upset to threaten you with mass sending of soft drinks...

My only concern with Cal is if I can continue to beat him up like I have done his whole life.

He looks far too big these days for me to tell him to stop hitting himself or hang him upside down i guess I have my own kids for that these days, at leats I had practice with Cal.

He's big enough now. Send him to me in Brixton. I'll remember to feed him, promise.

Barely recognized Cal without the Ghostbusters shirt, Bat-belt buckle and combed hair...

Does Cal like his DP straight-up, diet or caffeine-free?

I can't get over how tall he has gotten. Big, strong hansome looking lad. Job well done!
