Okay, sorry. I’ve been fighting a bout of food poisoning, while trying to do all these interviews so I’ve missed a few days. (Smile) So, Saturday. I was elected to the Television Critic’s Association Board, which is very cool. It means a bit more work, but it’s also a great honor. It was a hotly contested race, and I was ecstatic to be voted in the first go around.
My presentations for the Outstanding Children’s Award at the TCA event that night went fine. It’s very formal, so I had to pretend to be very professional. (Smile) It wasn’t easy. I was up till three in the morning chatting with my buddy Jax. She’s a hoot, and as soon as I can remember her new book title I’ll tell you to read it.
Woke up early Sunday morning for FOX, which was here with their new and some returning shows. That first day was when the food poisoning hit, so it’s all a bit of a blur. I do remember seeing Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton for their new comedy Back to You. The K-Ville gang was here along with the New Amsterdam (I really love that show) hottie. The gang from Bones was also here, and that David Boreanaz is as cute as ever. The next day was the Sarah Connor Chronicles, a show with some kick butt chicks including Summer Glau (“Firefly”). It’s super dark, but I really enjoyed that show. Julianne Marguelies was here for Cantebury’s Law. She’s interesting, but I’m kind of done with law shows. (Except DAMAGES on FX, which you should totally check out.) At lunch the Family Guy cast did a table read for us, and it was an absolute hoot. And Amy Sherman Palladino (Gilmore Girls Creator) was here with her new show The Return of Jezebel James. (I kind of liked this one, though I’ve heard mixed reviews.)
But the big news, and you guys will be so proud, is I went up to talk to HUGH LAURIE (House). Well, let me be truthful, I was in the scrum surrounding him. But I held my recorder up, and he looked me in the eyes and smiled. Really, and he didn’t smile at everyone. (For those of you who don’t know, I’m in total lust over the guy and it’s really hard for me to talk to him.) We had our moment, and I know he was thinking, “I’m going to leave my lovely family and whisk this woman off to the Bahamas because she has a beautiful smile.” It’s amazing what a man can say with his eyes. (Smile)
Today was set visits and I promise to tell you more about that later. I must go off and enjoy my Hugh Haze….
