marry me joshua bell!
so lately i've been surrounded by celebrities.
my friend pretty is dating her. she's a doll but he's not that into her. i will probably never see her again.
my friend skinny has been on dates with john cusack AND carson daly in the past two weeks.
i just went to anouska shankar's concert (she's a friend of a friend) and her father ravi shankar (who is uber famous, was friends with the beatles, george harrison is anouska's godfather) was there. so was norah jones (also ravi's daughter...different wife). anouska had this dinner for her friends afterwards that our mutual friend couldn't stay for, so that I also couldn't stay for (I didn't know anouska at all, we'd just been introduced), so we had a drink and left. richard gere and joshua bell were there as well.
let me tell you something. when i was in high school, i wanted to marry joshua bell. a lot of girls had jonathan brandis, eddie furlong, scott baio, tom cruise, luke perry on their walls....i had joshua bell (a violinist). am i a dork? maybe. but seriously, i was as in love with joshua bell as any 14 year old can be in love with anyone. and it stuck. he is still in my top ten and i'm 24 years old.
i saw him and i stared at him a while, thinking "god, that guy looks just like joshua bell." and i stared some more. until norah walked in and i heard her say, "hey josh." at that point, my heart started racing, my knees got weak and i froze. and we left shortly thereafter.
what is my problem?! i live in new york. i see famous people all the time. in fact, i saw tom cavanagh (who i stalk, will tell you about it someday), liam neeson, and howard stern today (they were not together) on the upper west side. i used to work at the goddamn soho house. i've waited on rob deniro, will smith, sarah jessica parker, jude law, george clooney, bill clinton, marilyn manson, paul mccartney (am not linking them. if you don't know who they are, you are dead to me). and i freak out because i see a frickin violinist!!!!???!!! what is wrong with me?! it's probably better i didn't say anything. "will you marry me" would have fallen out of my mouth before i could have stopped myself. am kicking myself right now.
