bring on the fries
I do the Max thing. I tell people on Thursday that Sunday is the big night and where I will be.
My birthday celebrations are generally an eclectic gathering of who can get free or is free with three days notice. The invites always say rsvp. People never rsvp. My birthdays are mystery nights. The guests are the presents. Surprises. I like them that way.
I get email from one friend he will be there if he survives the Long Beach chili cheese fries eating competition. I wonder if this is wise. I am suddenly glad the party is outside on a roof.
The Long Beach chili cheese fries eating competition features $10,000 in prizes. $4,000 goes to the winner.
I say, Jeez, that is better than a lot of screenwriting competitions.
My friend says, Yes, sadly, chili cheese fries are better than most scripts.
He has a point.
It still seems wrong you can get a bigger prize for eating chili cheese fries — and have better odds of winning — than you can winning most screenplay competitions.
