You’re going to have to trust me on this one, but this here blurry photo is Sarah Silverman (and Ben Schwartz her co-star in ‘Peep World’ the film screening I was at tonight).

Is it just me or have I gotten a whole lot cooler in the last 48 hours?

A good friend of mine is a member of The Friars Club; it’s sort of an old world membership club full of rich well-connected people. It’s kind of bizarre inside, like a monastery with full bar and gymβ€”all in the heart of New York City. She goes to hobnob with important folk and invited me along for a screening of this film. As I was getting settled I noticed a slight, pretty brunette that looked kind of familiar. Then she stood about six inches in front of me and introduced the movie. Turns out it was Sarah Silverman.

The movie was alright; mostly it was nice to see how nice she was in person.

While I was there my friend let me take a little tour. They have a whole room dedicated to Ed Sullivan (complete with super creepy bust.)

And a whole chair dedicated to Sally Jesse Raphael.

While I was there I also go to catch up with an acquaintance that does lots of freelance magazine writing, and she offered to pass on my pitches. That’s a really amazing offer; I’ve got to start coming up with ideas.

The rest of my day wasn’t too shabby either. I got a pretty amazing delivery this afternoon.

A little congratulatory token from my friends.
For a perpetually single girl, I certainly get my fair share of flowers πŸ˜‰

Oooh, and I invented a fancy ponytail. I was very proud of myself.

I was very impressed with myself, probably a little too impressed, ponytails aren’t exactly rocket science.

Yup, it was a big day: celebrities, flowers, writing connections and ponytails. What more can a newly unemployed girl ask for?

I may not win any awards for culinary originality this week, but I’ll stuff myself with various combinations of tofu and noodles if I want to.
