Last night, my girlfriend Oprah posted on Twitter that her upcoming appearance on Morning Joe was making her "nervous-ola." I have never in my life heard anyone other than my own very Southern mother say that word, which reminded me of how funny she can be -- often unintentionally. Coincidentally, I was also looking at old blog entries yesterday to re-post for your enjoyment, and I found this one from 2006. I was on my way to Los Angeles to see Pamie and meet Greg Berlanti, for whom I eventually ended up working on his show Eli Stone. Anyway. Please delight in this slice of my life.
From: Mom Subject: Re: L.A. trip Date: September 20, 2006 9:21:11 PM CDT To: AB I'm praying for your safety. Call me tomorrow night and let me know you are okay or email me. You know that even 30 year-olds get abducted (especially cute, small ones). Have a great time and remember you are a Southern girl with good manners. Also, wear lipstick. I would say don't smoke in front of people, but that's pointless. It just makes you look not as pretty. Take pictures and have fun! Love, MomI would just like to note that I never did smoke in front of "people," by which I am almost positive she meant Greg. However, I did drink several glasses of champagne and giggle a lot. And just in case you were worried, I wore lipstick every day. Have a fabulous weekend! We will be in New Orleans running the half-marathon on Sunday, so say a little prayer for my joints while y'all are in church that morning.
