Salad with a side of celebrity

Last night T and I had dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant--this small, unassuming place with twinkle lights and great food in the Santa Monica canyon. A good friend of ours is a waiter there and we frequent the restaurant often; their fettucini with lobster in pink sauce is to die for. Anyway, it was as we were sitting down at our table when we noticed that our cozy little place had Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick in one corner and David E. Kelly and Michelle Pfeiffer in the other. T kept ogling Michelle and I couldn't really blame him because she is absolutely stunning in person (not to mention I had done my fair share of ogling when I spotted George Clooney dining in the same space a few months ago. And yes, he's just as dreamy as you'd expect him to be). An hour later Dennis Quaid walked in and picked up his to-go order.

Wowee! I SO want to come celeb-spotting in L.A. I'm a little crazy about them, which is weird because they're just people.

but once when we were living in new york I followed a woman down the street because i thought she was chloe sevigny and i wanted to be sure.

after about six blocks I realized it wasn't her.

Stacey: Sigh. Sitting across the room from George Clooney was definitely a high point in my life.

Mary-Laure: Obviously! ;-) It's called Cafe Delfini. T and I went there on our second date and we've been coming back ever since. Their pasta specials are incredible.

Tartar: Wow, the very same day! Were you in LA on Sunday?

Citysage: You make me laugh. All that walking for nothing? At least you got a little exercise, right?

Leigh: Ogling and eating are my two favorite things. Apart from reading, that is. :-)
