The Dog Ate My Homework…

1 Comment

And other amazing excuses!  Being a teacher, I always get the best excuses (ranging from the dog ate my homework, to my Sister at my paper) but this morning I had quite the excuse of my own!  So I was late to work (AGAIN- I kinda always am) and had a great excuse this morning…

Life on a movie set!


Dark Fields was filming around the corner from my house so there were a million excuses trailers, etc. blocking my way and this little lady just HAD to sneak a peak at Mr. Cooper! 

OK, so I guess my fear of being late did interfere with that because after waiting five minutes with no appearance from the dude himself OR Renee, I decided I had to leave….kids were waiting!  But don’t worry Brad, Renee and “Bob” (Robert DeNiro and I are certainly on a first-name basis)

will be seeing me soon. This is NOT the end of my early-morning stalkings!

PS: According to, directed by Neil Berger, and starring Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks,Robert DeNiro, Abbie Cornish and Anna Friel, the movie is based on the novel “Dark Fields” written by Alan Glynn.  The story centers on a down-and-out writer who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects, including “trip-switching,” a phenomenon in which time moves with a stop-motion quality. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him.

Interestingly, the movie is SUPPOSED to take place in NYC, so while filming in Philadelphia, they had to change some street signs, etc., to mirror the facade of New York.


Yup, that is supposed to be 19th Street in Philly!

Anywhoooo, exciting business in Philly, no!??!  Have YOU caught any of the action?

One thought on “The Dog Ate My Homework…

  1. Unfortunately we keep missing Bradley and Renee in our neck of the woods (where he grew up). He’ll show up at a restaurant like a day after we are there or I’ll hit a Starbucks and one of them was there earlier. Ga!
