Skippy With Nuts
Yesterday was bumper pool day with everyone running around trying to get their phones and computers to work as we all struggled to remember each other's names. The first day on the job and the first day of a new production collided into a fun circus without the calliope.

I'm working with Budd Friedman, the Mr. Peanut of comedy, as he strode around the office with his Klink monocle dangling for ready-use from his neck. I'm also working with Marc Price, best known as "Skippy" on Family Ties. He's a great guy with boundless energy. Just like you remember him as the hapless best friend of "Alex."

We had a run-through of the show which was a lot of fun and showed great potential. I have worked with the host, Jimmy Pardo, in the past and he has that favorite combo plate of bitter and funny.

Today attempted some semblance of routine but it came in fits and starts, a car with a bum fuel pump, and I will not be entirely happy until the entire day can become comfortably predictable.

Tonight has the promise of 24 and American Idol and Bob.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

Wow...Skippy...you're taking me back to the days of my youth. jej.

I will not be entirely happy until the entire day can become comfortably predictable.

I'm with you on that one.

Routine is like an old friend you can always count on. It drove Billy crazy who lived to rid himself of any kind of rountine, and me holding onto it for dear life. It made for a balanced relationship although sometimes it created a few problems.

Skippy brings me back to my eighties routine of watching "Family Ties" so that's really comfortable for me.

Re:

Aron remarked this morning that she was tired of the same old routine. However, I like being able to walk into the cafeteria and have the grill cook ask me if I'll have my usual. :-)

i don't remember SKIPPY... but Marc Price was on an old The Weakest Link, and I fell in LUUUUV with him :) Straight, right?

Yeah Skippy is totally lovable and totally straight - what a coincidence! He is right up your alley...and mine.

OK, sorry to prolong the Skippy chat, but I kind of had a crush on Skippy while the show was airing. Of course, I had a crush on Mallory's boyfriend (Nick?) too, but that was a completely different fantasy.

Michael Keaton? Nah, didn't do anything for me.

Is there something wrong with a prolonged Skippy chat? : ) He was really cute and he's even better as a pudgy adult. I have totally forgotten who played Mallory's boyfriend. Do you remember?

Re:

Don't remember, but didn't he star in one of those "girlfriend from Hell" flicks?

Scott Valentine played Nick Moore.

Is this some crumb of triva I had buried in this rapidly aging brain . . naw, GOOGLE rarely lets me down!
