Retro dinner with great food — and where they filmed AMERICAN GRAFFITI, I think)

I had received 3 very generous invitations to join others for Thanksgiving dinner, but I decided to spend the day with a friend. We had a great time — had dinner at Mel’s. Hendra had their turkey platter and I had the chili burger. And, we saw the film version of RENT — which was much better than I expected. And, who knew that my new hero, Sarah Silverman, would be in it!?!? If you see it, watch for the big network executive! That’s our girl! Sarah “JESUS IS MAGIC” Silverman!

It was fun and I continue to have fun hanging out with Hendra. There is so much to be thankful for in what has most def. been a year of total transition for me. …and for Hendra as well. It was a nice day! Hope everyone was able to enjoy the day!

Karyn — I know you and your family were not able to do so, but I hope the rest of the weekend improves for you!

Of course the real concern of the day is that Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are getting a divorce. Who would have ever dreamed that would happen?!?!?! Heavy on my heart. Next they will be telling us that Demi and Ashton are calling it a day. Nah, that would never happen!

Well, a haircut is the order of the day! Not sure what the evening might hold!

    Some very cynical film reviewer called the film versions of “Rent” “Fame on steroids.”

    I’m glad you had a nice Thanksgiving…I am very thankful for you.

    Miss Marisol — That was so sweet. Thank you. Regarding the cynical film critic’s comment — it gave me a laugh. Tho, I guess I always thought RENT was a combo of Steroids and AZT. It was just kind of cool to see dancing and singing on the big screen. And it does sort of capture a time long since gone in many ways.
