I create context. I also write blog posts:

You Don't Know Jack.

(This post might sound pretty self-indulgent; I don’t mean for it to be that way…)
Today, for the first time in my life, I texted someone to wish them well at the Emmy’s tonight. That was a pretty big deal for me.

And it’s a pretty big deal for my mentor, Adam Mazer, who has been nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie, or Dramatic Special, for You Don’t Know Jack. The movie is also up for awards in the Outstanding Supporting Actress (Brenda Vaccaro & Susan Sarandon), Outstanding Supporting Actor (John Goodman), Outstanding Directing (Barry Levinson), and Outstanding Lead Actor (Al Pacino) categories. Those are some big-time names to be honored among, and he certainly deserves it.

I don’t know, maybe it’ll be the last time I get to do this. I tend to hope not, but if it is, it’s been fun just having that connection with one person. And it certainly doesn’t make the year I spent drinking coffee and discussing storylines and plot points any less meaningful.

One thing I know I’m crossing my fingers for: I want to send my first “Congratulations on winning an Emmy” text tonight.
