How It's Mangoing

I took this week off because I was super behind on Mangoes for MuchoMangoMayo. I knew going into this week I'd have to work on the show ten and a half hours a day to get the whole month done before it was time to go back to work. I also knew that I'd fail, because I know what I can and can't do. However, I always get a little more out of myself by setting my goals high.

Except for today I've been averaging about five hours of work a day. Today was very good. I got eight hours in. I've only got the weekend uploaded. By that I mean Friday (which just popped up), Saturday, and Sunday.

I've got three more scripts mostly done, partial stories for about two more. I have three more days before work. My guess is I'll get maybe seven more shows in the can. Then I'll do what I can around the job. I still have two more weekends as well.

If you're worried, don't worry. I'll get it done. I always get it done. I only won't get it done if something super bad happens to me and then it will be too late to worry. So don't worry.

You weren't worrying at all, were you? Do you even know what Beware the Hairy Mango is?

1. Yes, I know what it is :)
2. I was actually behind in my listening (because I was digesting an audiobook) but I caught up this morning.

And here is a true fun fact: in one of your "outtros" (opposite of intro) you made a reference to Jonathan Winters and a great big W, which of course I got. But the fun fact is that yesterday, the Blu-ray of "Mad Mad Mad Mad World" arrived in my mailbox from Netflix. (I haven't seen the movie in ages & I decided it deserves a rewatch in HD).

Sweet. There are some great bits in that movie, and one of the best is when Jonathan Winters goes apeshit at the gas station.

I had heard a rumor (apparently unfounded) that Ernie Kovacs had been cast in that movie, in the role of Melville Crump (the part played by Sid Caesar); this would have had him and Edie Adams cast as husband and wife, as in real life. But this was most likely wishful thinking on the part of the fan who came up with the rumor. The movie is great in any case. And you're right, the gas station destruction scene is hilarious.
