[image error]Last night I tagged along with my friend Sarah to a very star-studded dinner in honor of The Kids Are All Right and its many Golden Globe nominations. Annette Bening, Warren Beatty, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Bob Balaban, James Lipton (!) and Parkey Posey were just some of the stars who came out to celebrate the film. I got to meet Oliver Platt, who was my celebrity crush until I found out he was married with three kids, and to toast screenwriter Stu Blumberg, whom I first met 15 years ago, when my best friend was dating his best friend and the four of us got really drunk on gin gimlets and broke into an impromptu swing dancing session in Stu's East Village apartment. Some other stuff happened, none of which I remember, but he's always been happy to see me over the years, so it couldn't have been that bad. Right? I also got to meet Lee Daniels and Nora Ephron and her husband, Nicholas Pileggi, who wrote Goodfellas. And had my second conversation with Hal Hartley in as many weeks. Of course, now that I'm back into cartooning mode, I'm seeing each of these conversations as mini-comics. If only I had time to actually draw them.
