Andy Cohen's hands look huge, and he's loving it. Let him explain.

And it IS a good one. I don't know why I am feeling especially blindingly optimistic this morning, but I'm gonna run with it. (Or, I'ma run with it, if you prefer I speak using "I'ma.")

Maybe I'm happy because last night I attended opening night of "The Pride," a brand new play by Alexi Kaye Campbell starring Ben Whishaw and the adorable Hugh Dancy. It is directed by Joe Mantello and I didn't need to read the raves this morning to back-up mine from last night.  The play is a portrait of gay-ness in 1958 and 2008. It is deep, funny, heartfelt, sad, and beautifully acted. I really loved it.

The party was at the Maritime, which should not be forgotten as a viable venue for a meal or party. (This is me reminding myself.). From there we popped into Colicchio & Sons (Tom had JUST left) for a drink, then to Pastis for dinner. It was jam-packed and we spent a good chunk of time separating the Euros from the homosexuals. We were sorting, really...

Anthony got me a new BlackBerry yesterday and it is so small that I know the Carpal Tunnel will be searing through my joints in the next couple days. The only benefit to this BBerry is that it has a pad instead of trackwheel, and that it's so small it makes my hands look HUGE. (A small price for an ego boost for my sad hands...)

Tonight is a new Shear Genius and I know you'll dig it.  You dig?

Hey speaking of digging stuff, did anybody see the Soul Train documentary on Vh1 the other night? I DVRd and loved every damn second of it. Don Cornelius is the man, and that was indeed the hippest trip in town. I love the theme song and listen to it all the damn time.

I am in an interminable cab ride and my Carpal Tunnel is starting to pulse. (Though my hands do look enormous.). Have a good day.

Hi, my name is Stanley Bennett Clay. I played the young guy with the screwed up afro in the Frederick Douglass Afro Sheen commercial. I was 20 years old when I did it. I'm now 60. The work and the responses make me very proud and humble!

Hi Andy I thought that that we were poor but after seeing a few episodes of OC Housewives, I feel like setting up a charity fund for some of you OC housewives. Many OC housewives are living beyond their means. I believe they should lower thier standards just a little bit and move to the next city over which is SANTA ANA. There is a lower cost of livng here and its relatively close to Walmart and also the 99 cent store.??

There really are filthy rich people here in certain parts of OC but it obviously ain't these housewives, these ladies could use some public assistance (welfare).

What about the amazing Frederick Douglass Afro Sheen commercial. The whole doc was fantastic, but that was definitely a favorite.

Andy,

Any chance yours will make an appearance in Butt Magazine? Not that I could find an issue here in Small Town, Red State! Seems like last year you blogged that you would not be opposed to showing yours off--I think in reponse to the pale Levi J shots.

The question with the new BlackBerry is whether it takes better picture than your old BB. It's something you always complained about...
