Grandpa is a little bit rock and roll

Donny?

Irene, I see the time of your posts and I am amazed. Are you really the totally put-together, early riser, do-more before-breafast- than-most-people-do-all-day-kind of girl that you seem? Next you'll tell me you get up that early to run because you're training for a marathon won't you?

Irene Done said...

No. And noooooo. I've never re-set my blog time from Pacific (Blogger's time zone) to Central (God's time zone) and it looks like I'm posting two hours earlier than I really am. I do try to get all my news-reading in before work. And by "news-reading" I mean "scanning celebrity gossip sites." (And by "work" I mean "scanning celebrity gossip sites.")

And the only marathon I'm up for is a TV-watching one. In that case, I AM an Iron Woman.

I feel better. Have a happy long weekend, please! P.S. if you aren't listening to Ron Moore's BSG podcast you really should. What I love about it is that it proves that the creative process for big-time Hollywood types is really no different than ours. They don't really have it all figured out ahead of time...

I hope you have great weekend too.

And I have listened to some of the commentary. You're right -- there's a lot of similarities. I especially sympathize with the issue of network approvals and rejections. There was a series on Bravo last winter called Project Runway, a Survivor for fashion designers. That also presented so many situations agency people could relate to. Working with clients, defending a concept, selling an idea, creating your own PR -- they had it all, only with far more melodramatic personalities. If that's possible.

Wow, same age as Michael Jackson and Madonna--hard to picture them as grandparents.

Barb'ra -- That's the first thing I thought of when I read the news. Because (hold on, here's where I have to admit that I'm old) when I was very, very little, it seemed like every older girl was in love with either Michael or Donny. Michael or Donny? It was kind of a test because love for Donny meant you were a little dorky. Hmm. Maybe dorks knew a little sumpin'.
