City Sights

I don't have pictures for some of these:

**A woman in a bright pink button down blouse and white dress pants with a large white "Coach" or something of the sort handbag, lying on the ground, face down in the flowers that are sold on the side of the corner mart. She lifts her head, clearly drunk, and tells us over and over how her husband is such a jerk. Her well-to-do husband comes out of the corner store, sees his wife, shakes his head, and exclaims in a heavy New York accent, "What's wrong with you?!?!"

**A man in the back seat of a cab with its window rolled down yells to the driver, "STOP HERE. HERE!!! YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING!!...YES I DO! OH I'LL TELL YOU WHY!!! BECAUSE I'M AN AMERICAN, THAT'S WHY!!!" He gets out of the cab and storms away.

I saw this guy, from the TV show House, crossing the street. Love that show.

And this guy, going into a gym.

This nifty little Smart Car, which I absolutely love.

And as I was shlepping across town for auditions the other day, I caught a glimpse of myself in one of the the shiny windows. It was the first cool day we had, on the windy side, and I forgot that on days like those you need a scarf. I improvised.

You look so New York in those glasses!

Apropos of nothing, Shelly and I were up in New Hampsheh this week, for the fall color. It was nice.

TD, did you know I lost that hat over the summer and someone found it in the MUD outside the cast cabins in Kentucky? It came back to me. My beloved hat.

Seth, awwwwe shucks.

Mer. was in the middle of the night...well-to-do means they do well for themselves...House comes on Tuesday nights. It's really good...I'm not sure I spelled the Yiddish term right, either...I miss you, too.

Sandina, if that's not a complicut I don't know what is.

Fork, the lady behind me?!?!

SuperC, did I spell "shlepping" right?

Roy, ahh yes the glasses were a $5 purchase from Chinatown. Thank you, New York.

Major, that was really the plan all along. You've found me out.
