Celebrity Sightings...and other randomness

Had dinner with the beautiful people in Malibu last night. Lots of "pretty" everything: pretty cars, pretty waitstaff, pretty food (which explains the pretty-big prices). Saw Gidget (the Gidget, the one the novel was based on--she's still tan and pretty) in the lobby, and someone-I-didn't-recognize-but-my brother-did from General Hospital sitting right behind me.

Great night with family, but I'm telling you, after all the preening and rubbernecking going on in the nearly-fabled oceanside town of beautiful people, my comfortable home to the north felt so good again. (Seriously, who needs that sort of pressure every day?)

Check this out! If you've ever written a novel, published or not, you'll probably dig this trailer for a new movie (and no, this is not a paid advertisement--I wish :-) Even if you've just fantasized about writing a novel--you gotta see this.

Speaking about famous places and movies and beautiful people, my Uncle, Hap Navarro, is being inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame this weekend. Cool, huh? (Hopefully there won't be too many black eyes in the place :-)

Wow, I never see famous people. I was just talking with someone about this because she runs into major-league sports people here in town all the time (so she says). And now your uncle will be famous! And your novel will make you famous!

So, I TRIED to watch the trailer, but there was some kind of problem connecting to the server. Oh, looks hilarious :). Hadn't heard of this one before. It reminds me of Inkheart one of my daughter's favorite books, I think by Cornelia Funke.

Occasional trips to "Fantasy Island" can be fun, but home is always sweeter ;)

Or infamous, Damselfly--lol!

Sorry Robin about the load up--ugh.

That is the first good trailer I've seen since LOTR, I think. Can't wait to see the movie!

That looks like a really fun movie! I'm not a huge fan of Will Ferrell. Something about his face bugs me. How shallow is that? But for this movie I might just make an exception.
