The Power of 10

Mr. Independent Film Producer wants me to get into a car with him and his friends for a road trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. I don't go anywhere with strangers and the thought of 6 hours in a car blasting Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses, Poison, and [insert name of hair-metal band from the '80s here] is questionable, but he thinks it would be great if I met everybody he knows, to perhaps inspire my writing. However, the first 10 pages of the screenplay I'm writing for his movie is due Monday. Which means I stay home and The People's Court blares in the background—the only real inspiration anybody needs for, well, anything.

  2. Loren told me the ways of the People's Court, so I can do nothing but agree.

  3. I guess Loren DOES know SOME things from time to time.
