quelle delicious evening!
eric was the perfect Companion to celebrate such abundance as he is also an Author (and a New York Times Best-selling Author at that) and so we talked a lot about characters-that-take-over-the-plot and curious feats of imagination and the sheer grind of writing-everyday (but also how delicious it is to live in one’s head much of the time).
while we were eating the thursday special (chicken pot pie) and sipping our tea, Eric said a very funny line – and then picked up his digital recording device and through the miracle of Technology sent it to his cohort on The Dinner Party Show and it will undoubtedly appear in this sunday’s show (do listen, it’s extremely witty).
And then we drove back down Hollywood Boulevards and felt so special to be in an open top car with the lights of tinseltown (and modified-to-look-vaguely-glam chain stores) beaming down like kleig lights making Jean Harlow’s blonde hair into a shimmering crown – we’re pretty sure we spotted a super trooper left over from the most recent Premiere at the Chinese Theatre too.
just like the one ABBA sang about. we really love this whole writing-life.
