Socially Butterflied


I am not the social girl but I have been and, apparently, will continue to be for a little while. What better topic, then, for today's 10 Things.

1. I saw Jessica Fletcher pound a couple of martinis (in character).

2. I fell in love with a couple of children while wishing that someone had designed and utilized a gem-encrusted harness for Elton John.

3. I had a solo dinner with somebody else's mentor and soaked up a full serving of information and advice and care. I am so lucky that those somebodies shared.

4. I laughed at the climactic action moments. I heartily apologize to the folks sitting in front of me who might have been quite serious about their Catholic church movies.

5. I spent two hours becoming wildly envious of everyone who has ever shared time, performance space or air with David Hyde Pierce.

6. Simultaneously I was wading through delightful Murphy Brown flashbacks.

7. I wandered around yet another part of Brooklyn I haven't spent much time in.

8. I ate a lunch of corn dogs, sweet potato fries and onion rings without irony. Or death.

9. I bought dinner to cook from these nutty folks.

10. I tried out a new joint in the 'hood on the spur of the moment. I don't recommend the prosecco but the service and the food were both lovely.

Just wait until you hear what's on tap for this week.

  2. Yet, tragically, I kept my pants on the whole time. Even when Chrome introduced me to the cute actor-boy.

  3. Busy lady!

    I saw DHP in Spamalot and he was utterly delightful.

    I am glad you picked Seattle over Portland (also a cool city) and envy your visit to my old stomping grounds. I will get you a list of some of my favorites as well as others'...

  4. Oh you misunderstand, it's not an either/or proposition. I'll be on Mt. Hood for a wedding, in Portland for a day or two then on up to Seattle for a day or two then home to Brooklyn for, you know, ever.

  5. You had a good weekend! Have a wonderful trip, and a safe trip back home. Seattle's wonderful this time of year.

  6. Geez, did you get laid off or something?

  7. Nope. Haven't even taken a day off for all this. I'm exhausted! But you moved back to Brooklyn so all is right with the world.
