I know, I know… I should be going over the lines and learning the scenes that we’re shooting tomorrow.  But here’s the thing: I have a blog to write.  And Twitters to Tweet,… and I also have to think about what to have as a snack (gotta keep my strength up, right?) and as if that isn’t enough, there’s a hockey game on TV.  So, what’s a red-blooded Canadian boy to do?  Hang on… Montreal just scored.  Okay I’m back.
