I can’t believe that tomorrow will be my last full day of vacation here in sunny California. Time has flown by. I’ve been much busier than I thought I’d be. I’ve only read 3 and a half books. And 2 of those were on the flight out here.
On my first day out here, the winds picked up and there was a crazy dust storm. (As seen in the picture below of the mountains.) Trees were falling on cars. Anything not heavy or tied down got blown away.
As fun as that was, the highlight of the day was of course seeing the pilot of a new show that may or may not make it to this fall’s line-up of sitcoms. It was starring the talented Parker Posey, who was wonderful as always. It was also a treat to spot comedian Chris Kattan, who was waiting back in the wings. The show is titled The Return of Jezebel James. Posey plays a children’s book editor for Harper Collins who asks her estranged sister (played by Lauren Ambrose) to have the baby that she’s unable to conceive. Yes, it’s just as strange as it sounds. But both funny and heartwarming as well.
