Script Insanity, more Davis Improvements.

OK, I keep having this other romantic comedy idea of mine running around in my head for quite a while, distracting me from my current script work. I knew how it ended, so I fired up Celtx today, and write the ending.

Jesus H Christ, I love the ending. Just a little suspense to make the watcher nervous for a moment, possibly thinking “It can’t end that way. That’s not how this is supposed to work!”

Now the bitchy part about that script – I can’t do it currently. No matter how much I may like the ending, it’s unfeasable to shoot what this script would take. But I’ll throw it in the projects directory, and if I should ever find myself with enough money to make a movie like that, I’ll pull it out. Of course, that would also mean I have to write the rest of the script. It’s probably gonna end up being one o’ those “pet projects” type things. Gotta admit – I wish life had endings like this. Oh well πŸ™‚

But at least it’s out of my head now, and I can focus better on the current piece of insanity. Technically, I’m still on the Second Draft – but, it’s more like the Third. I toasted the way I was doing the second draft. It was better than the first, but, still way lacking. I hadn’t even reached the end when I decided it was time to redo the whole damned thing.

If my predictions are correct, the this one will be almost the final draft (there will be some tweaking before I call it final). Cool.

Worked out, etc. today. I almost worked out twice – I felt so damned good afterwards, and a couple hours later I was seriously considering putting in a second workout because I wanted to feel that way again. Some people get addicted to drugs, some people to video games, etc. Me, I get addicted to feeling good πŸ™‚

I have no idea if I’ve lost any weight. Well, that’s not really appropriate with me anyway. Once I’m working out, I build muscle mass like crazy for a while. I won’t look huge and muscle bound or anything – I just get REALLY dense muscles, and some nice definition to me. And if the past is any indication, I’ll still have a gut. I guess ya’ can’t have it all πŸ™‚ But I FELL great – which is good, since it makes me want to continue πŸ™‚

I’m going to try and see if I can do something a little different to try and remove a little of that gut on the front. Working on R & S, I haven’t been eating my usual eggs & rice for breakfast (actually, it’s eggs, rice, some serious hot sauce, and meat – something I learned from my ex-in-laws in Colorado) Instead I’ve been having McDonalds for breakfast, because I don’t have the extra 10 minutes to cook. So I pre-cooked 6 days worth of breakfast. Then I took it a little further, and cooked 6 days worth of rice & meat based lunches. Lately I’ve either been having fast food, or calling up Harmon, Cindy, or Brandon to see if they wanted to go out to lunch. I hate to eat alone, but, it costs too much to go out to eat every day, and most of the food is way unhealthy. So I pre-cooked it, then bought myself a little heating element I can use on the job site to re-heat it with.

I also bought me a nice mug, some instant tea, and some lemon. I can’t STAND to drink city water (I fucking hate it with a passion. I grew up in the country with some really good well water – I can’t stand all the stuff that happens to Cheney Lake water on it’s way to Wichita.) Which means I end up drinking A LOT of Pepsi when I’m working. Fuck that – I wanna loose my gut, so I’ll drink instant tea (I’d bitch about not having any ice, but, uh, I’m lucky if my drink doesn’t freeze over on the job site! πŸ™‚

When I was working in China, I ate rice, 3 meals a day. I was a bit of a fat fuck when I showed up in China, and after eating rice daily, I lost quite a bit. Wonder if that same theory holds here?

Those two additions to my routine should make a difference to my Davis Improvement plan – let’s see if we can knock off a little of that gut. The meals have quite a bit of protine without having a buttload of fat involved, and no sugar. A bit of veggies to boot. And if I’m not drinking Pepsi non-stop at work, I’m cutting a LOT of empty calories out in a hurry. I go through (I’m not exaggerating here) three to four 52 oz. cups of Pepsi at work. Thankfully, I don’t drink NEARLY as much when I get home – I switch to tea when I get home.

Ya know, the more I look at this, the better this plan sounds! Maybe some day I could have a nice flat stomach (or 6 pack abs would be nice too, but I’m not holding my breath on either one πŸ™‚
