One Day at a Time + A Bloomin' Book Party

Yep, that was me with Valerie Bertinelli on the flight back from NYC last week . . .

We were merely a seat away from each other. (On the diagonal.) Jet Blue has these marvelous little TV screens for each passenger. When Entertainment Tonight came on they mentioned Marlee Matlin, who I met a little while ago . . .
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket . . .
and they mentioned Carol Burnett, who I also got to meet . . .

Then an ET (that would be Entertainment Tonight, not extraterrestial) segment about Valerie Bertinelli comes on! And she’s sitting practically right next to me. (On the diagonal.) To be polite I didn't look to see if she was watching herself on TV. But I wanted to.

Speaking of celebs, I recently attended a book launch party for this guy . . .

Oh, wait. Peepy was telling a bad joke. Here's a better picture . . .

Hey! That's Michael Reisman of the seven-figure-movie-deal-for-his-debut-novel, SIMON BLOOM, THE GRAVITY KEEPER. (Snort! I almost wrote GRAVY KEEPER, which would make it an entirely different book.)

There were lots of glamorous, fancy, well-dressed people at the party held in/at Tangier including these usual suspects/LAYAs . . .
(Above: Kerry Madden, with Peepy, and Amy Goldman Koss, demonstrate several uses for the shiny reflective cover of Michael's book, including eye-blinding weapon.)

(Above: Eddie Gamarra, who's with the Gotham Group, and glam It Girl Cecil Castellucci who's with Peepy.)

Since we're talking glam, when I was in New York, a friend of mine suggested I go to this place where bootlegged goods (designer purses and whatnots) could be had for mere pennies.

Taking the moral high ground, I refused to go because: 1) I am against that sort of thing, and 2) I couldn’t find the place.

Lucky for me, because there was a raid on the day I would have been there. Just think, this could have been me . . .
. . . only in NY and not blonde.
