weekend update

so ... on friday was the big City Kitties fundraiser.

I realized how much I adore Nicki Jaine

then we jetted out to manhattan where we went to the Algonquin and met up with some friends

then we went to Trillian's reunion at the world famous Neighborhood Playhouse. Of which there are many famous alumni (apart from trillian_stars -- (the most exciting of which I noticed was Kier Dulla who played David Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey but also includes lots of other people of lesser notariaty like Sandra Bullock, James Caan, James Doohan, Illeana Douglas, Robert Duvall, Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Lloyd, David Mamet, Darren McGavin, and Steve McQueen). Trill's classmates were a wonderful band of people who have turned into producers, dancers, studio execs, and actors like Donovan Patton who those of you with kids (or young minds) may recognize as Joe from Blues Clues.

I heard numerous great stories about auditions for soap commercials, soap operas, operas, and the various other ins and outs of an acting life.

Here's Trill in front of her class's headshots. Can you find her?

and i took a group photo of everyone

We went out on the town, had a wonderful time....

then we went to see my mom's show at the Stratasphere gallery. I'm right proud of her! The show is called "Floating World".
