r_scribbles: (Legs - Shiny!)
I've been having wonderful dreams the last couple of mornings. The night before last I dreamt that I was at the BBC with Hubs - only me & Hubs were also sort-of Violet & Alex as teenagers - and there was a producer there who really wanted to make our script, which was a little bit Zombie Dad and a little bit something else - something about superhero siblings, because occasionally, the dream would flit into the narrative of the script we wanted to get commissioned. I just remembered this feeling of elation and excitement that the powers that be were so interested in helping me tell my story... then, I woke up. But that excited feeling remained. This is probably my brain's way of telling me to start putting some proper thought towards Zombie Dad.

Last night I had a dream that was The Sirens of Titan, as made by Matt Groening, with The Spine doing the voice of Malachi Constant (he'd been Tweeting the day before about the peculiarities of being well known for SciFi roles despite not really liking the genre, which must have prompted my brain to cast him in another SciFi role that he would be perfect for). I remember it looked beautiful - very lavish and odd, the way that I picture many of the scenes in the book, and suitably lonely and melancholy as well. I tweeted a description of the dream - partially because it had been so impressive at merging the text of one of my favourite writers, the visual style of one of my favourite animators and the voice of one of my favourite actors so beautifully - but also because Bothering Brent Spiner is one of my favourite Twitter activities. He then made a general tweet that suggested he didn't believe me. Maybe lots of people dreamt about him last night, in the same way that everybody apparently has a Sex Dream about David Mitchell sooner or later. Maybe he's projecting himself. Maybe he's a Witch!

In any case, Twitter is weird and wonderful and still my favourite toy because you can do something as odd & simultaneously mundane as telling Brent Spiner that you just had a dream about him. The 14 year old girl in me really, really wishes she had Twitter.

Anyway. I fancy doing this photo meme again. Nicked it off [livejournal.com profile] lady_bracknell, think it deserves a second airing.

List up to three (3) things you would like me to take pictures of. Once I've gathered up all the requests, I'll make a post with the pictures I managed to take.

Go nuts, chaps and chapettes!

Alex slept from about 8pm to 3am last night, then from 3.30 to 7. One night feed, and a quiet evening! Woo-hoo! More of that please, kiddiewink, although if he could have a feed at about 11pm then do the long stretch without waking til morning that would be even better.

And he's started smiling :D

Having lots of thoughts about Zombie Dad, but haven't had time to write any down over the last couple of days. Getting a good few ideas about the main characters and story arcs though, which is promising. May do a couple of weeks of self-enforced Script Frenzy in when Alex is sleeping through and Vi's at playschool to bang out a 1st draft.

By the way - important question time - is David Mitchell sexy? Because I had a sexy dream about him a while ago and when I mentioned it on Twitter it turned out loads of other women have as well. Someone described his 'Would, But Shouldn't', which pretty much sums it up for me. It's mainly the Funny that appeals to me, because godamm, he's a funny fella. And the Cardis don't put me off at all, as many of my crushes can out-Dorkrobe him. What say you, ladies? Oui/Non?

I may or may not have started writing Zombie Dad: The CBBC Dramedy.

Going to get La Reynolds and The Schneiderman to fight over the main role.

Carry on.
