Home from the Oscars. I enjoyed working with Anne Hathaway. Never knew she was Shakespeare’s wife. Watching tape. I don’t look like myself.

    Hi. I followed you over from HotComesToDie.

    I was already following you on twitter, and remember reading your essay last year, with the Erma Bombeck writing contest.

    I found my first blogs to follow from that contest.

    I love how you’re taking Suzy to Joan Rivers. I wish I were there to do something like that.

    A pleasure to meet you.

      thanks Alexandra, welcome to Barbs Blast! Joan was great, she did a funny lecture. Suzy at HotComesToDie is funny, too.
