Update on my forthcoming film

Late at night, when Bridget is wasting time on the interwebs, she sometimes likes to look up the status of my movie. The internets are abuzz lately with news of The Fighter, and someone has posted a short clip. While I don't actually appear in this clip, this is actually the scene we watched over and over again -- we saw the full rehearsal and choreography of this melee. Warning: this link takes you to a YouTube video which may well be taken down at any point, and it shows a big fight among Mark Wahlberg and 9 or so women.

The movie is still getting Oscar buzz, with a rumor of a release date around Thanksgiving. Other than that, there really isn't much information out there. We're keeping pretty quiet on the project to build anticipation.

We can't wait!

This is just to say

Today on our walk, Bridget noticed that my, uh, leavings looked a little strange. It is SO embarrassing that she pays attention to such things. What's even more embarrassing is that she asked Jake if I had eaten anything different while she was away yesterday. I can't believe they talk about stuff like that! Anyway, Jake thought a bit, and then remembered that when he walked into the pantry, the giant tub of cashews was without its lid. He had thought nothing of it, and just replaced the lid, but thanks to Bridget's nosey snooping, the two of them pieced together my crime. Here is my confession (with apologies to Mr. William Carlos Williams).

Dear Bridget and Jake,

I have eaten
the cashews
that were in
the pantry

and which
you were probably
to have with your gin and tonic

Forgive me
they were so delicious
so salty
and so crunchy
