This Restores My Faith in Humanity

The pictures below are from the pillow fight in Union Square on Sunday. I can’t believe how awful people can be sometimes, but then they go and do something like this. Gotta love ’em.

So, the Oscars. Pretty good, I thought. Most lovely: Gwyneth Paltrow, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Hudson, Reese Witherspoon. My acquaintence won an Oscar! It was mind blowing seeing him hug some of the most famous people in the world on his way up to accept it. Then hearing them thank HIM in their speeches. He’s living on a different planet now. (But yay, him! He was always nice, and there was something endearing about him.)

I noticed that Jennifer Hudson ran off the stage, leaving George Clooney trailing behind her. I woulda slowed down and let him catch up. “Hi George. One of the greatest nights of my life began with you calling my name …” No way. I would have been just like her. A little bit out of my mind and oblivious.

  1. I read “Waiting for my Cats to Die” a few years ago and loved it. I just Googled the title remembering that you had a website, and now my toast is burnt, the dog is screaming to go out and I can’t seem to drag myself away from reading this blog.
    The day is shot!

  2. What nice things to say! I am already in a good mood because I got some positive feedback from my agent about the book I’m working on now, and so I’m just basking in that, “well what do you know, you don’t suck” glow! And you just added to it! Thank you!!
