Best excuse for not going out to a jam last weekend:
"Had a run-in with a bat and I had to get rabies shots." (The guitarist from my classic rock band)
Quote that exemplifies what it's like to work at an advertising agency:
"So will the bowl be dancing, too?"
Oddest public behavior observed yesterday evening:
An elderly gentleman drinking red wine out of a wine glass using a straw.
Persistent, heretofore unreported thoughts from last week's L.A. trip:
Carrie Fisher is very petite. I loved that the "On the Lot" costume person was reading "Vogue" when we walked by her office. There are a bazillion rock n' roll clothing shops on Hollywood Boulevard and I am sad that I didn't have time to shop in any of them. I'd never really given much thought to the Escape Hybrid before, but it really does get great gas mileage. When my husband's Honda Element finally craps out, the hybrid Escape is on the short list.
Compare and Contrast BlogHer vs. Ford Escape from Boredom:
I paid my own way to BlogHer this year and it was EXPENSIVE! Even sharing a room with Suebob, I still spent every cent I brought with me and that was with careful rationing. A Guinness at the W's bar: $8! Don't even ask what I paid for the steak I had one night. By the time I got to L.A. on Ford's dime, I was feeling so frugal that I didn't so much as order room service or even look inside the mini bar. They definitely served up red carpet treatment, but I didn't want to overstep.
This is "On the Lot" contestant Sam Friedlander wearing an awesome t-shirt depicting monkeys with typewriters. I asked him where it came from, but he'd gotten it from the show's wardrobe department so he didn't know. I must have eet!
All right, enough goofiness. Get back to your lives!
