cross your fingers and light a candle

oh sure he looks all sweet and innocent now...

On December 22rd Jack and I shot an All Detergent commercial. We were informed on December 23rd that some of the film was destroyed at the lab, and we might have to reshoot in January. Gulp. Getting a two year old to do ANYTHING for more than a few minutes is difficult. Getting a two year old to let you take his shirt off, put it back on, make him run around a strange laundry room, giggle, throw laundry in the washer, look natural, take his shirt back off, put it back on, run around the laundry room again, laugh, look natural, NOT FREAK OUT, for two hours, while someone is filming him, and there are strange people standing around staring at you, is really hard. I got him to do just that on December 23rd. Now I get to try again. Should have known that it was too easy. I predict full family collapse by 9:05 am.

If you're in the South Pasadena area tomorrow and you hear a child sobbing and a mother muttering things like "this business is a pox upon our house", you know you've found us. Throw a soy gingerbread latte and some Buzz Lightyear swag out the window of your car as you pass, we are people in need.
