Screenwriting In Tijuana

Have I ever mentioned that my friend Gail is not a patient person.  She also doesn’t hide her boredom well.  On Tuesday, she should have won an Oscar!!

Gail and I had the chance to accompany her brother, Ray to a screenwriting group he belongs to.  Ray is writing a novel which is almost completed and he participates with several group in an effort to learn everything he can about writing.  I really admire him for that.  He asked Gail and me to go with him to the monthly meeting of the screenwriting group.

Gail and I had both gone with him to one of his other groups, we thought it would be a couple of hours.  It turned out to be almost 4 hours.  I thought it was rather interesting.  Members of the group bring in copies of their works in progress and each member takes a role and that section of their screenplay is read.  I enjoyed it. Gail not so much.  But anyone else there would never have known.  She gave me “The Look” a number of times but she kept it a secret from everyone else, because she wanted to do this for Ray.

The skill level varied, but overall I enjoyed the experience.  Besides, I enjoy people watching and there were certainly some characters there!  The meeting was held in a local library.  The room we were in had a really interesting piece of artwork on the wall. 

 It was three-dimensional fabric and the face of the person appeared to be quilted.  It was very unique and realistic.  

We had to be back at Gail’s by 4:30 because she was expecting a man to do some work in the condo.  We didn’t have time to stop for lunch, so we grabbed a snack at home.  I had my old favorite, Greek yogurt and Fiber One.  It held me over until dinner.

Dinner was a Wonderful experience.  We were going to Tijuana Flats for Taco Tuesday! Gail and Alice found this a few weeks ago and I couldn’t wait to go.

That’s me almost blending into the building!

The Hot Sauce Bar!!  Lots of flavors to choose from!

We had done our research by looking over the take out menu we had at home.  My choice was the spinach and artichoke quesadilla.  When we walked in the door a young lady said to us “Have you seen our New Menu?”  Oh, no!!  The spinach and artichoke quesadilla was no longer on the menu.  I decided to play dumb (I’m very good at that!) and when it was my turn to order I told the young lady at the counter what I wanted.  She said it wasn’t on the menu any longer but she’d check…Yes, they could still do it for me!  Was I ever glad!

It was just Delicious!!  This may be the last spinach and artichoke quesadilla they make, but it was mine!  For those of you who follow BCDC…I did NOT eat any of the chips.  Gail and Alice saved me from them!  Proud of myself for that because they looked really good!

Gail’s tacos which I sampled and they were yummy!! 😉  They have 75 locations and I can’t wait for the chance to check their website to see if there are any in New Jersey.  They are worth coming back to Florida if there aren’t any closer!

After dinner we decided to stop at one of our favorite places to look at the sunset, Honeymoon Island State Park.  It’s just wonderful there.  Late in the day it’s peaceful and quiet and not crowded.

The Three Stooges…oops!  Three Amigos in the Sunset!

It was a great day.  We’ve already made plans to join in the fun for Taco Tuesday next week at Tijuana Flats.

If I were a gecko on the wall…

We’re off for a day in St. Petersburg.  Should be fun!

Happy Wednesday!! 🙂

  1. While four hours is a bit long…I think listening to people reading the screenplays would be really fascinating!

  2. That sounds like such an awesome day! The photo of you three is adorable.

    I checked the restaurant’s website… closest up here is Bensalem, about 45 minutes away. It looks pretty worth it, though, as long as we can both play dumb! :p

  3. Such as beautiful cat! Your friends seem nice too! Miss you alot.
