Symi gets a mention in Neos Kosmos in Melbourne
Tantalisingly close to 30% just needs a few more small pledges…
Only a short blog today due to a combination of cold, hay fever, cat, sleepless nights and the after effects of as antihistamine tablet. Am late getting up, have script work to do, the Alarm Cat broke in through the bathroom window during the night and announced his triumphant arrival noisily several times, and on top of that we’ve got no hot water as there is a leak in the hot water tank. We’ve told the landlord and someone is supposed to be coming around today to take a look.
It’s not going to be an easy job. The hot water tank in our house is in the kitchen, and I know it is leaking because there is water dripping down the wall, luckily it is only dripping and not gushing. This means the pump kicks in every hour or so, so we turn it off when we are not at home. But the tank is behind the wall; a false wall of wood that has been constructed in part of the kitchen for the sole purpose of concealing the tank, I guess. I reckon all that is going to have to come out for a new tank to go in, which will mean no kitchen for a length of time, and possibly no water. We shall see. It might be just a leak on a pipe or a joint; there’s no way of knowing until a plumber comes and… well, takes a wall down.
Meanwhile: there’s a breeze this morning and things feel fresher. Not as hot and clammy as it has been. I have no plans for the weekend apart from some tinkering on the scrip and trying to drum up some more pledges, taking a cold and flu tablet, trying to shake the thing off – it’s been on all week – and then doing as little as possible.
But I do have time to thank Kon for posting up a shot of a page from the newspaper Neos Kosmos in Melbourne, Australia. It seems our film project news has made it to the other side of the world. Keep spreading the word, we only have 15 days to draw in… well, a lot more pledges! (And on that note: thanks to those who increased their pledges to a 666 number yesterday; I’ve not names and email addresses now so I can make contact when the book is ready and arrange to send you a copy.)
