Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Celebrity Stalkers
My generous benefactor, the recently departed, and much missed, Zenchick, was given tix to this evening's Mercantile Tennis Challenge at the Arena and invited me to go!

Turns out Zenny is very well connected, because these seats were on the FLOOR baby!! Seven rows courtside. All the beautiful people were there, and many homes in Lutherville, Ruxton, and Hunt Valley were empty this evening.

We were sitting next to a Baltimore Colts player whose name I missed, but he kept being asked for photos. BUT more excitingly, we were a mere seven seats directly behind tennis legend Martina Navratilova for a few sets during the doubles matchup between the Bryan brothers (cute!), Mardy Fish, and Robby Ginerpi.

Pam Shriver was also in attendance, sat in our section most of the time, and clearly enjoyed getting caught up with old Baltimore friends. Zenny told me that Pam's now married to James Bond - George Lazenby, and they have three kids together, which is kind of creepy since he's my Dad's age and she's the same age I am. Ick.

Anyway, we stayed to watch a few sets of the last mixed doubles matchup to see Martina and Lindsey Davenport play, and headed back to drop me off.

They've been filming an indie flick in my neighborhood for weeks now, and Zenny wanted to stop and watch the filming. I swear, I sometimes think I moved to a Hollywood suburb given the number of film crews that use Bolton Hill. We double parked and Zenny chatted up the location scout and some of the film crew as only Zenny can do to get the inside scoop on the film, and then we hung out for a few scenes, hoping to catch a glimpse of the stars, Noah Wylie (of ER fame), and Gretchen Mol. We didn't get to see either one since they were filming in the living room of one of the brownstones, and we were out front on the sidewalk, but we got to hear lots of "quiet on the set", "roll film!", and "Cut!".

The working title of the film is "Boy of Pigs". Subject to change, it will hopefully make the film festival circuit next summer - might be worth catching if for no other reason than it is set in my hood - again.

Now, my glamorous evening must end since it's already past my weeknight curfew and I have to take out the trash for pickup tomorrow morning.

    Mmm, Gretchen Mol... you got a lifesize Xerox of her body for me, right??? Please tell me you got a lifesize Xerox of her body for me...

    I have to ask, primarily to be a curmudgeon, but does one continue to link to a blog that is no more?

    Just curious. ;-)

    jwer: You need a blow-up doll sweety.

    JJT: You're going to have to be far more annoying than that to equal the curmudgeon king known as Jwer! She's recently departed, so yes. Six weeks from now, we'll forget all about her. ;-)
