Someone commented on my post about my trip to LA:
"Is David Spade gonna be in the show? Awesome."
If he is, no one's told me yet. :) He was in a meeting in the same office area where I was in a meeting. So as he was coming in, he passed by our meeting.
Not that interesting a story, I guess. Sorry.
In any case, we did some final touch-ups to the script today, and then sent it where it's going. I think the next I hear will be whether the network wants to film the pilot. I've been told that decision might be made pretty quickly, or it could take a while. I expect the sooner we hear something, the better, but I suppose it can work the other way too. In other words, I know nothing.
I just sent a freelance piece off to Moment magazine -- the magazine's subtitle is "Jewish Politics, Culture, and Religion." It's a great magazine I hadn't seen before they contacted me about writing a piece, but am since glad to have had the chance to read a few issues. The piece is a trying-to-be-funny piece about how lawyers can celebrate the Jewish holidays at their law firms. Honestly, I learned more about some Jewish holidays while working on the piece than I knew beforehand. Like Tisha B'Av, which is a mourning day for bad things that have happened to Jews in the past. Or Shavuot, when you're supposed to decorate your synagogue with flowers and greens. Lots of holidays.
Someone else commented, "I wish you would update more like you did while you were in law school." That's very flattering, and I wish I would update more too. But sometimes I don't have that much to say. Even though it's obviously apparent that the threshhold for how much I need to have to say to write a post is pretty darn low.
In other news, last week I found out my agent sold the rights to my book to a Polish publisher. This makes 4 countries my book's been sold to: the UK, Thailand, Korea, and Poland. If nothing else, that will make for an interesting shelf of foreign-language copies. The UK edition comes out in February from Vintage, and I've already done a couple of interviews with a magazine and a newspaper from over there; I'm not sure when the other editions come out.
