New Year's Eve!

Ladies and Gentlemen!

My dear friend Miss Chad came into New Orleans for New Year's Eve! Believe it or not, we went to high school together at the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts in Natchitoches, Louisiana, the same city that "Steel Magnolias" is set in, which was written by my friend Bobby Harling! (But you know how I hate to name drop! Speaking of name dropping, did I ever tell y'all the story about when Elton John invited me to his Oscar party? Oh, another time...)

Anyway, Miss Chad made a huge splash in New York City as a architectural lighting designer and then he pulled a Madonna and moved to London! (He even talks like her!)

We drove to Baton Rouge to walk the hallowed halls of our collegiate alma mater, and last year's national football champion (GEAUX TIGERS!), Louisiana State University! Chad attended LSU and I sometimes tried to. We had lunch at our old college hangout "The Chimes" with our dear friend Miss Heather who had the cutest little baby with her! I think it was hers, but I don't ask questions. I try to not know everybody's "business" if per chance the police should get involved at a later date. Let that be your New Year's Resolution and you'll find you spend a lot less time being interrogated. Take it from me, no amount of "acting" experience can fool certain detectives...

Heather's baby? Heather. Miss Chad.

Anyway, tonight I am going to a New Year's Eve party at the home of another college buddy, Miss Jamie. During college, Miss Chad, Miss Jamie and I all lived in this building in Baton Rouge with my good friend (which I will see next week in San Francisco) Miss Scotty Owens.

I wish I could tell you it used to be nicer.

Anyway, Happy New Year!!! And here's two more gratuitous pictures of Mrs Danvers that Miss Chad took with his fancy Japanese camera!

Mrs. Danvers.


The New Year has to be great with Mrs. Danvers by my side!

Don't worry about me,

How funny! I live in Nacogdoches, Tx, and my college has a rivalry with the college in Natchitoches.

Also ironically, I'm a theatre teacher and my kiddos just did "Steel Magnolias."

What a small world. Happy New Year, Varla!
