who is the most famous person you've ever met and what's the story behind it?
mine would be meeting and hanging out for a bit with Jason Schwartzman many years ago when he was in Phantom Planet.
I thought this was more amusing, but my friend tonight was telling me about a time that Robert Pattinson bumped into her at a bar in Canada, and she didn't know who he was. a lot of other girls in the bar followed him everywhere taking tons of pictures. apparently my friend went to the bathroom at the same time that he did, and when she came out she couldn't leave the area because of all the fans. he came out and she drunkenly said to him "it must really suck to be you sometimes, sorry dude" and hugged him.
So last night I was in emerge with my twins (again) and it was late when we finally got seen (around 2am). My kids had thrown up all over their blankets by that time but luckily there were two more receiving blankets and one of my 4 year old's sweaters in the car. I gave one blanket to the mom sitting beside me who mentioned how cold it was in there (her kid was sleeping on the chairs but he was shivering) and used the sweater and the other blanket for my kids.
It was really annoying to see all these little kids cold at night. I want to make tie blankets (maybe 50) for the hospital to leave in the cubby shelving unit (where they keep the odd kids book) for any parent who doesn't have a blanket available, either because the kids puked all over it or they forgot in their rush to come to the hospital.
Would a hospital accept something like this? How would I go about making the offer?
If they wouldn't want to clean them, I'd be willing to pick the blankets up, wash them at a laundromat and bring them back (not daily but every few days). It really sucked to see so many sick shivering kids (mostly older so the parents might not immediately think to bring a blanket) at 1am. :(
I'm making a roasted vegetable and goat cheese flan/frittata thing, and I think it needs some crunch. Toasted sunflower seeds, toasted almond slivers, or shredded crispy seaweed? Or something else? Those are the things I have already, but I'm open to suggestions...
Lets say you've just met somebody. No immediate deal breakers. But gradually you begin notice he/she is a slob. Un-neat. Disorganized. Not in a hoarder way but systematic none the less. His/her personal area is littered with papers,half-empty soda cans, unopened mail etc. His/her car has clothing, ketchup packets, paperwork crammed in the back seat. Would this be enough to give you second thoughts? Not make a relationship Facebook official? go no further? deal breaker?
You realize you won't be able to change this person and will always be the cleaner upper of the relationship.
