Scat goes to Hollywood

Syrup Yes, it’s finally happened: Syrup has been optioned for a feature film! After a great deal of messing around (mostly by me), today I finally signed a contract. This means I now get to sit around and say things like, “Tobey Maguire can win a thousand Oscars, babe, but he’ll never open a picture,” while other people go about the dirty business of actually trying to get something made. It’s fun already.

As things start to happen in the coming months, I’ll report it here. And if nothing’s happening, I’ll make up some wild rumors to keep things interesting.
