a star is born

I finished my first full cycle of the paper last night. But that's not the big news.

The big news is that Guillem is in town. He arrived late on Monday so, although we were both tired, I went down to the CUTE little flat he has down at W. 71st and got our catching up out of the way. Don't you just love when you haven't seen someone for a while and it just seems like you pick up where you left off.

Of course now he's a big time soap opera boss, making the big bucks. Plus, he's in town just as a stopover on his way to St. Louis. You see, his play was translated into English by a guy out there and is having its US debut this weekend. So he rearranged his hectic life and is heading that way to see it.

I had lunch yesterday with him and Walter and, at the end of the meal he gets a call and we find out later he's being interviewed for a piece in a Spanish paper. "Oh, yes, I'm just walking in Manhattan now with some friends. You want to chat about my play? My ideas? My art? Of course! Dahling." He's being awarded things left and right. The man is in demand. G. the star! Ah, I knew him when.

There's plenty more to blog about but it'll have to wait. I'm now spending so much time editing and writing for money, that I just kind of balk when I think of doing it here. But I'm sure I'll come back to the fold soon enough.

Uh-oh. The curse of the texty day-job.

I use to rail at Nay, "Why you watch so much TV!? Why you not read!? READ! REEEAD!!!

An' it's cuz she reads all day, editing. She no want to read during free time.

The Press looked great this week — definitely can tell that it's being handled with a fresh breath of creativity. But maybe that's just me reading between the lines.
