The Presidents are jealous of ME today

Happy President's Day all! I'm working as usual so no holiday for me. For those of you who don't know- I work with a film producer on several movies. Our film Wanted (starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy) is in post production and comes to theaters in June. Today I'm at Fox attending a scoring session with Wanted's composer Danny Elfman. It is INSANE and one of the coolest experiences of my life.
There are about 75 people involved in today's session including the orchestra. The orchestra is sitting in a huge room with a glass window facing the booth where all the producers and crew are. I feel so overwhelmed by the music that once the violins started to play I got teary. I'm such a pussy.

I hope everyone is having a great holiday.

p.s. Did you know that the United States celebrates Lincoln and Washington's birthdays together on Presidents Day because years ago the South didn't want to recognize Lincoln's birthday independently since they lost the Civil War? (sore racist losers)

p.s.s. If you live in the South don't send me hate mail- I'm not talking about you I'm talking about your deceased racists ancestors.

Hi! I love your blog and think you're absolutely hilarious. In fact, I created an account that I'll probably never use just so I can tell you how great you are. (that sounded slightly creepy, sorry!- not a stalker, I swear!)
However, I've noticed that you have tendency to use p.s. followed by p.s.s. in your posts, and I don't want to come across as an obnoxious grammar Nazi (even though I probably am) but p.s. stands for post script, and if an additional notation is added in this form, you use p.p.s. (post-post script, as in after the afternote), not p.s.s.(post script script)
ok. I'm done being rediculously annoying. Sorry.

p.s. I really do love your blog! =]

Orchestra music does that to me too, I get all teary eyed. I really enjoy the practice before the conductor walks up, everyone shushes and then begins. aaaah.
Heh. "Rediculous", much.
