6am today there was scheduling drama. I’m not sure if it’s resolved, but I sure as hell didn’t go into work today.
Oh, I forgot to mention- In the “Where is Michael Pitt” category… from Friday….Mitchell Fink (who took AGES to write back to me last month… it was very funny. You had to be there) reports on the Douglas McGrath “Nicholas Nickleby” adaption read at the New York Culture Project on Bleecker St. last Tuesday… “Michael Pitt, who is best known for his recurring role as Henry on “Dawson’s Creek,” read the Nickleby part at McGrath’s presentation. There is no production timetable as yet.” Other weirdos reading that night were: Gwyneth Paltrow, Nathan Lane, Tim Curry, Natalie,and Alan Cumming.
You know what also made me laugh today? Nick mentioning that I love limeys. I started to think about it… then I looked at all my journal entries, and I guess I *do* like them. Now I had to ask myself… “Qu’est-ce que c’est un ‘limey’?” I’ve used the word before, but I had no idea that it ONLY refers to ENGLISH people or people of English descent.
So I guess only Coldplay really counts as being limeys. Although Guy is actually Scottish, not British.. oh my god- and I totally forgot- JONNY IS WELSH!!! JON IS WELSH!!! JJ72 are Irish, The Strokes are American, Ronan Keating is Irish too, Travis is Scottish…. although Starsailor are English too…. In any case, I’m going to have to use the word more often.
