When I lived in So Cal I managed, like all other beach bums, to see Hollywood stars in their native habitat. I never found much inspiration in those encounters, a few laughs or moments of introspection, but nothing that gave me great pause.

Pris, it looks like Birdie has taken the Kurt Vonnegut story down from her blog site -- the link in your post didn't work when I clicked on it -- however, I found her story in the OurStory website, here, where she has posted it now.

And yeah, it's a great story.

Lyle, glad you tracked that down. Our Birdie is always in motion :-)
