Another sighting: John Slattery from "Mad Men", hair rumpled and wearing an ironic T-shirt, coming up from the downtown C E station at Spring Street.

A President's daughter is famous by definition, isn't she?

"Famous" isn't an accolade. It's a state. If a lot of people you don't know know who you are, you're famous.

I actually have a sighting. Charlie Palmer at his new restaurant in San Francisco on Tuesday night. A very nice man who was very impressed with my wine selection.

I met Peppyre in person. Top that!

"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

Why is everyone assuming it's Amber Tamblyn? I don't know who David Cross is!

And yes, I remember Russ Tamblyn. Didn't he play a tiny elf or something in some Disney movie?


If you do not know who David Cross is, I suggest you go out and find copies of Mr. Show with Bob and Dave.. It was a sketch comedy show that was really funny.. Also, David Cross was in the television show, Arrested Development. I had been watching the show before dating Miss A but, she hated the show so, I stopped watching it. But, he was a never nude and he had a very funny part.. But, Mr Show is good stuff.


I went to high school with David- we were in the Performing Arts program, so we had all our classes together. I have pics of him with lots of hair. :) He ran for class president, but was assassinated before the election. It was pretty hilarious.

I thought David Cross was great on Arrested Development. But then I saw the Bob and Dave stuff and the Incredibly Stupid Deceisions of Yet Another Incredibly Stupid Character Played by David Cross.

Talk about a one trick pony.

and what's the deal with David Cross & Whoopie Goldberg? A while back, there were all these stories about David Cross ripping Whoopie to shreds. Apparently, he claimed that a copy of her Broadway show would be placed in the cornerstone of the Temple to Liberal White Guilt. But everything seems to have disappeared. Was it a hoax?

And she was.

I was once accosted by a camera crew in Oslo in train to a Norwegian comedian. I asked him if he was famous in Norway. He said he was but I told him that, as an unknown in New York, I was actually more famous than him.

it's in his book "i drink for a reason" and got picked up in all the reviews.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Last night in DB Bistro Modern, Judi Dench, who looked lovely (great haircut) and who is incredibly tiny. Also Mireille Darc (no, I did not recognize her, she was pointed out to me by a French person I was chatting with). Also very petite.

some famous old white dude, who might have been ted koppel, held an elevator for me, put his hand on my back and gently shepherded me inside. whoever he was, he looked really familiar and i've seen him on tv a bazillion times. in any event, i'm pretty sure it wasn't sneakeater.
