There are three endings to The Girlfriend Experience. One at Tribeca, one OnDemand and one for the theatrical release.
Um. Never thought this even for a second… But IRL, Eric Bana is hot. For realz, yo.
After Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity made a seemingly impromptu offer last week to undergo waterboarding as a benefit for charity, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann leapt at it. He offered $1,000 to the families of U.S. troops for every second Hannity withstood the technique.
Today I faxed the acceptance letter for my new job from the fax machine at my current (soon to be old) job.
I KNEW THAT I WOULD NOW. SO GOOD. SO GOOD.
Yesterday I met a girl from Ireland who moved to the city - on her own - for one month to volunteer at the Tribeca Film Festival. She rented a studio in Chelsea off craigslist and hopped on a plane. She doesn’t know a single person here. How badass is that?
This should inspire me to vacay solo between jobs, but eh… I’m still undecided.
SIX DAYS LEFT!
Great. We live smack in the middle.
Still haven’t found a good translation for “Infection Control Epidemiologist.” Until then, my parents will have no idea what I do for a living.

- A: If you see anyone coughing, run the other way.
- J: You do know that every time I volunteer, I am touching the hands of 500-600 people right?
- A: Oh my god, why don't you just hang a sign over your head that says, "GIVE ME THE SWINE FLU NOW!"
- J: No, it's not fatal!
- A: Why. Am. I. Even. Studying. For. Finals. We're dead! [He runs off yelling "we're dead! we're dead!"]
Swine flu symptoms are similar to regular flu: Fever, body aches, sore throat, cough, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. If you don’t feel well, seek medical attention. So far, it’s important to note, this swine flu is treatable (and absolutely survivable). It’s resistant to two of four antiviral drugs approved for combating the flu.
Swine flu will dominate news headlines in the days ahead. Every case around the world will be carefully tracked and tallied — and deservedly so. It may not sound like much, but the best defense involves some very simple steps: Every sneeze should be covered — preferably with the crook of an arm - and every hand should be washed … and washed again.” —
hmm. probably not the best time to be ticket-taking from hundreds of people every night at tribeca?
