Red Letter Day

Monday, June 16, 2008


ABC news filmed us last night and this morning for possibly a piece on Nightline and/or the evening news. It was quite hectic and exhausting. There's probably hours of film for what will be a few minutes of actual footage on the news. Being the subject of a news feature is lot like being a movie star, except without the huge salaries, luxury automobiles, groupies, and craft services tables. If fact, all you get is the repeated "takes" to get the right footage. ("Can you guys walk down the pier and talk to each other?" "OK, do it again").

They took film of Dave in Lawrence, me in Oakland waiting for his plane to land, then us in San Francisco at dinner and at the hotel, as well as a more formal sit-down interview. I am very curious to see what the final result will be. It was quite nerve-wracking, and sort of weird. I mean, really, this shouldn't be news. we're just getting married, not becoming the first gay couple to step foot on Mars or something.
