Big? A ticket to Scotland. Small? Hot tea, lemon on the side.

My New Years resolution was to go to the gym. It's 5pm and I'm watching '90210.' You do the math.

Beach Music, by Pat Conroy. Genius.

Unless it's hard-boiled, I can't tell the difference. I'll go with 'poached' because it sounds delicious.

Yesterday, with 25 middle school students, to "It's a Hard Knock Life (for us)" For tickets, contact me.

I'm two years slow on this, but "The Blower's Daughter," by Damien Rice. I'm obsessed. Closely followed by "Be Mine" by David Gray.

A turkey and ham 6" from Subway. The Subway Special, if you will.

Black.

We are seriously going there? Okay, just for you, Erin. Debbie Gibson. My dad scored us some front row seats. Righteous!

Has there ever been a boy born who can swim faster than a shark? Office fans, anyone???

1:58 PM  
Blogger Rees26 said...

Lahahan - I think my SECOND concert was the Beach Boys and Kings Dominion with John Stamos on drums! I was so excited! And there are actually plenty of boxed wines out there that are good - I'm not a snob about that stuff. Just the FRANZIA that you idiots bought for me. That's where I draw the line. Ok, that's where I kinda draw the line. I think I definitely ended up pushing the little button on that box late night when I was already wasted.

2:17 PM

Hank: I'd love to say something really deep, but honestly it's Kathleen Turner. She came into my restaurant in NYC all of the time when she was working on "The Graduate" on Broadway, and let's just say that she always provided us with good stories to tell our friends the next day.

Chris: Yeah, definitely! I want to get up to NYC soon, but I'm not sure I'll be able to swing it financially until after I get back from Europe in March.
