Did some Patty-filming in Drive In, and the newbies flooded the location. One poor boy kept sending friendship offers and IMs saying "Please be my frand," "If I buy a car will you be my frand?" I didn't have time to help him, or energy to spend on him, or anything. I gave him some landmarks but felt mean for not doing more. I just... couldn't. I could hardly do what I had to do. Caitlin, Enj, and THOMAS were kind to act for me. The blocking the other day was no help to anyone but me, though, it seems, and I had to explain it to Cait as she hadn't been there.
Tiff came over, which was fun.

I apologize for not explaining the blocking to Caitlin ... I was busy being Dan Dufus and forgot :((
It's ok. I appreciated you being there - once we get to the big Dan part I will need your expertise. I think for the handshake I will film Dan coming up to Grace, smiling, and shaking hands, but keep the camera above the hand level so the miss-aspect isn't important. I might need to have you two at a diff angle as I can't cut with the spinning car behind you. An unmoving bg would help a lot.
