Clooney Watch, Day 3

Yesterday, as I'm told (because I was working, dagnammit), fellow Brooklyn neighbors strolled up and down our street with their dogs or strollers, pretending like this is what they do all day every day, hoping for just a quick glimpse of The Clooney or The Pitt. Oops forgot something at the store. Again. Old ladies stood armed with cameras for hours. Our ordinarily lazy doorman got up from behind his desk several times (a first!) to peek out the door. Casual elevator conversations began with, "So, any sightings?"

Total sightings according to my very scientific survey: 0

Which is amazing considering the sheer effort which people are putting into this celebrity stalking business.

And then, last night in midtown Manhattan, a few miles from our home, guess who Nate just happened to run into as he was leaving work.

Did Nate solicit George for sex for me? No.

Some partner.

Edited to add: Thalia just ran in telling me what Daddy taught her to say in case she runs into George:
Sign my boobs.

That is grounds for Nate's dismissal.

I'd put him on notice.

You know, Nate, sometimes it's nice to think about other people's needs. Psh.

In. Excusable.

I think this buys you a free pass to guilt free movie star sex for as long as you are together.

You should tell her to say

"Sign my dad's balls"

Really, what a selfish man! The least he could have done was invite him over cocktail hour. Or at least to help change the baby!

So, but, did you say, "Can I touch you?"

It always happens that way. I kept missing Jenny Aniston in Chicago by like one day and one block. It blows, but I'm sending good thoughts your way. "There's no place like Mom-101's boobs. There's no place like Mom-101's boobs."

Ah, George, he really is improving with each passing day. Is he too old for me? WhatamIthinking OF COURSE NOT.

Oh that's fucking great.

He's a keeper that man. Yes, you may never get to do George. But at least you'll always be entertained.

I don't think it's any great mystery that I love your blog lots, but now you've gone and put up the hottest picture of the hottest man ever, and you have unwittingly taken my blogging love for you to a whole new level.

I love this level. And I love George. Thank you. I need to be alone for a moment now, please...

Thalia saying that to George would change the world. He would be so overwhelmed by her cuteness that he would immediately impregnate his Fear Factor girlfriend thus creating a new Clooney generation!

Did Nate say what his follow-up comment would be after Thalia made her request? That, I'd like to hear.

Please tell him he can sign mine too!

Oh... to find Mr. Pitt. Now that would be freaking amazing.

When we lived in NYC, I LOVED having celeb sightings. I remember seeing Jennifer Aniston running in the park. Awesome.

And I met Demi Moore. That was pretty cool.
