  1. I know! I can’t say we really “met,” although Kathleen Wilson spent a minute or so chatting him up.

    Mark Harmon isn’t my first actual celebrity sighting. I saw Bob Odenkirk at a bookstore in Pasadena last month, although he was there to promote his book, so I don’t know if that really counts.


  2. HA-ha, Western Dave! I will be sure to forward that compliment on to Sue. (Not to make you even MORE jealous, but we’re totes besties here.)

    And Gordon Wood has gray hair IIRC, and pretty good hair too, but he’s no Mark Harmon. (My mother is completely envious of me. I’ll have to check the production schedule when my parents come out to visit next month.) Mark looked pretty good for a guy who must be 60, and he was wearing an enormous and very soft cashmere overcoat, which must have been really hot to sit around in as it was in the 70s today.

    I can only wish the Huntington were my day job. I’d even gladly be the “motherfucker on the ladder” with champagne, although I’m sure it wasn’t that glamorous. I don’t know what he was doing, but IMHO it looked like a really boring shoot. They were set up on the entrance to the library and were using the reception area & desk to make it look like a fancy government building or the WH or something. (Or so we were told.)


  3. Oh hey, you know Kathleen Wilson! I met her at the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes conference in Hong Kong this year. Tell her I (well, my real life identity) said hi!

    Yeah, yeah, Mark Harmon, celebrities, your fancy sabbatical life, blah, blah, blah. 🙂


Let me have it!
