Robin Schiff: Regina?
Robin? Hi! How are you?
I'm fine...fine...I can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm calling you from my cell phone.
Yeah, I've just been running around all day and I'm not going to be in my office for a while so...do you have all your recorder stuff worked out?
Yeah, it should be fine. And I'm sorry to keep you on speakerphone, but, you know, what with my recording issues, it's probably a better idea.
Good! Oh my gosh...what're you doing? You're just running around, running errands?
I am...I...you know...I'm waiting to hear if this other pilot is gonna go, and they were supposed to tell us every day last week and every day this week...and we've got a great director...and in the meantime I'm just killing time and you know how things just expand to fill the time you have?
I'm just, you know, I'm busy all the time and, you know, I can't even tell you what the fuck I'm doing. I couldn't tell you what I've done all day. I had a really good lunch of sushi, that's about it.
There ya go. Well, that's actually an accomplishment in some books, so, you know, consider yourself lucky.
Right. So what's the weather like there?
Um, it's an armpit.
It's, like, nine hundred degrees in here, and, of course, I can't afford two air conditioners, so...
I've got one in the bedroom, which I've got, like, cranked, so I go to bed at night with, like, two down comforters on.
Well, you're a really good writer. I should think at some point you'd be able to afford a second air conditioner...
