Single-point Multitasking

In Film, Food, Irish Mist, Local projects, Revision, Sanford Meisner on November 25, 2014 at 1:19 pm

The big issue in the next scene: walking the right path on the edge of broad farce. A tricky exercise. Too much: the whole thing sounds like an excerpt from a Louis de Funès movie.

The late de Funès being a great favorite with French people of all ages and all walks of life too. I can’t stand him – the grimacing and the hamming, more suited to a Punch and Judy show. Maybe people laugh at his antics as a reaction to the strict observance of manners that used to be the norm in this country? Doesn’t make de Funès any funnier in my eyes. Humor is as humor does. You can’t fake a real smile any more than you can fake a real belly laugh.

Too little

Interruption: a knock on the door. Someone on her way out of town, dropping off food so it won’t go to waste.

Phone calls.

Second knock on the door. Someone who’s made the wise choice of dropping in on a friend instead of contemplating ways to end it all.

Phone call. Someone asking me to double the number of hours of monthly coaching for a young man (and to send my bill along for payment.) Billing, yes. Important.

Work projects to consider for the upcoming year.

1 pm. A meal? Good idea.

Now.

As I was saying…
