Book Soup

Tuesday night I biked over two and a half miles to a book store on Sunset Blvd. to go to a book signing. When I walked in the store Bret Easton Ellis was introducing another author named Joe McGinnis Jr. After his intro the Joe guy came up and did a reading for his book. It sounded pretty cool so I bought his book and two Ellis books that I already own. I waited while Bret was being interviewed for some TV thing. When he was done he came right to me and signed my books first.
Booyah. Bret Easton Ellis was super nice and funny. It was incredible to literally meet one of my favorite authors. He used my pen and I was gonna let him have it but as I was walking away he called out "Hey, you're pen" which is awesome in and of itself.

I did a rewrite of my group's Hollywood Production Workshop script and the producers were really happy about. I'm now just watching to see what the EPs have to say (aka the teachers).

Harold and Maude is now one of my favorite movies. I know that sounds pretentious probably but it really is good and has a similar tone to what I strive for in some of my stuff.

I have to watch Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer tonight for class. Lame.

I am coming home tomorrow!!!!
I'm very excited. See you there.

Bret Easton Ellis called you pen? That's weird.

Just hating because I'm jealous is all. Did you ask him when the movie of Glamorama is coming out? Or what's Kip Pardue's favorite kind of ice cream?

I didn't know if the Glamorama movie was a touchy issue or not so I didn't ask. Same about Roger Avary's car accident.
