Home My Books About Me Contests

What do a Tibetan monk, an aging hippie, a playboy preppie, and a woman made of plastic have in common?

They were all sitting next to me at lunch yesterday!

No, no, for real. That is actually an accurate description of the table next to mine yesterday. I had a blast trying to figure out what they might possibly have in common. Also in the restaurant was: a star of a very popular TV show, a “lady” of the night and her ahem, more aged gentleman companion; and various pulled and wrinkle-free women throwing down bottles of champagne at noon.

That’s right, everybody…I’m in LA! Today I had lunch with the lovely women of Fox 2000 (the studio that has optioned both Before I Fall and Delirium), at the super-swank Polo lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel, a Hollywood institution. Pretty much every single car in the lot was either a Porsche or a Benz, and I had the most delicious $26 shrimp cocktail I’ve ever had in my life! (Okay, granted, it’s the only $26 shrimp cocktail I’ve ever had in my life.)

I have to say, I have NO idea how anyone gets any work done out here. If I lived in LA, I’m pretty sure I would spend my whole life lounging by a pool with a cocktail. (Witness pic below--but at least I was surrounded by business cards, which makes it SEEM like I was working!)

Actually, though, my meetings have all been pretty fab—I’m getting to know some of the other people at Fox, and we’ve been buzzing about possible directors (and shoes, and boys, among other more pertinent topics). So keep your fingers crossed for me!
