Is it really too much ask, that before I die, I’d like to spend the holidays with David Sedaris and his sister, Amy? Really? I don’t think it should be that difficile for someone to arrange this for me. I could listen to him for hours. Days, even.
That being said, here’s David Sedaris on Jimmy Kimmel, discussing the sound of failure, amongst some other gems…
And how darling is this??
Okay, I do have a David Sedaris story. Stephen, Patrick and I went to see him do a reading at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. (Which is usually pronounced “Beeny Royal Hall” ’round these parts.) So. We’re waiting in the gorgeous lobby and spot that little (alleged!) a-hole Mike Myers. Yeah, Wayne Campbell, Austin Powers, blah blah blah. I was a little excited about it, then we took our seats. Patrick got up to pee after awhile and came back with Mike’s autograph, apparently chatting it up with him in the Boy’s Room. Patrick told Mike that he brought his “mentally challenged sister, Julia to see David and would he please write a personal note?” Patrick tells me this entire story during the intermission, my mouth agape, and hands me a note that says, “Keep Smiling, Julia! Love, Mike Myers”. I could not believe Patrick went to the crazy-ass trouble to make up such a story–but I did believe it–hook, line and bloody sinker.
Patrick’s a mean, mean, funny-mean lying little queer. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.
I think I may have given my BFF Patrick a case of the temporary (?) deafness in one ear this morning, since I screamed like a girl when I heard the news that Silver Fox, Dr. Drew Pinksy is getting his own one-hour show on HLN starting in the Spring of 2011. Yeah…imagine a 13 year-old girl hearing that Justin Bieber is getting his own nightly TV show; just like that. Ears. Pierced. FREE.
“I am thrilled to join HLN and I have no doubt that the natural fit I feel at the network will provide the opportunity to explore the stories behind the story and really explain the choices that people make,” Pinsky said the announcement.
“Dr. Drew informs and inspires audiences on subjects that matter most to them and their families, and he is an ideal fit for the HLN network,” Safon said. “Whether the topics are in the news or simply in the daily lives of our audience, Dr. Drew will shed light, provide crucial information and give viewers something to talk–and think–about.”
FINALLY. I don’t have to sit through Z-Listers and their cray-cray addictions on Celebrity Rehab just to see Dr. Drew for a few minutes. I don’t have to–but y’all know I WILL!!
