I Love a Good Ed Koch Sighting

I'd like to give a prolonged shout-out to Deb, congratulating her on the opening of her film The Tollbooth on Friday. Everyone in New York: go see the film at the Quad, this week, if possible. Nice work, Deb!

And in a further testament to her moxie, I'd like to congratulate Deb on getting New York's most colorful former mayor, Ed Koch, to attend Friday's opening. The missus and I got there early, as did Ed, and we had a lovely time watching him catch some z's in the lobby waiting for entry. We also sat in his row and can testify that he remained awake during the film itself.

There was one other star sighting as well (in addition to the cast of The Tollbooth, I mean). A few places behind Ed and me in line, a dude was excited to see Chris Elliot in attendance. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was just me.

In your defense, Dan, I once again have to say that I just don't see the resemblance between yourself and Chris. Aside from the absence of follicles on your scalp, of course.

I was in line, too, and I saw Paul Giamatti! He's looking good these days.

Ah, screw you, starstruck fan, if that is indeed your name...

Totally unrelated to this post, but I really do recommend that you read the recently posted comment by thisisyourrealname on Friday's lost dickhead post. The last sentence is a beaut.

P.S. I have "no idea" regarding the true identity of thisisyourrealname, but he, I mean he OR she is damn funny.
