I almost forgot to report that Sam Waterston wasn’t the only interesting person I spotted in my hotel in Los Angeles last week.  The first night we were there, MrB and I went to get a drink at the bar. I was excited to see a large white dog snoozing on the floor by a couch. (I’m always enthused to see pets in unexpected places.) Then I looked to the couch, where the dog’s companion was sitting with his back to us. I practically lost my mind, babbling to MrB, “It’s the guy! That guy! The Liza Minnelli guy!” MrB had no idea what I was talking about, but I eventually explained that this was the man we saw at restaurant last year who compared me to Liza Minnelli in an unusual but flattering way. That had been such a strange little conversation with such a distinctive-looking person — what with his black leather hat and giant dog — that it seemed like a dream or a visit from another dimension. But here he was again, apparently real! I had to sneak a picture.

Not my imagination!

Can anyone identify these two? Inquiring minds want to know.

Speaking of Liza, I see she just performed in London to rave reviews. I wish I could have been there! I need to add a Liza concert to my to-do list.

    I want to know too.

    thought of you yesterday as I watched a movie is a perfectly clean luxurious quiet empty cinema.

  2. I don’t know who he is but his Liza comment was a nice compliment, don’t you think?

      Yes, I loved it. I felt it was kind of obnoxious to share it, but it was so unusual and specific (and I’ve heard other Liza lines so many times) I just had to. Especially when there was a giant dog involved, you know?

  3. I adore mysteriously weighty multiple paths-crossings – can’t possibly be coincidence!
    Awesome to hear Ms. Minelli’s doing well.

    Weirdness abounds.

    I love Liza – oddly my husband seemed to run into her a lot a few years back. To the point where we wound up parked next to her at a century city mall. Anyone else you would be creeped out seeing over and over, but she is a celeb sighting that just sorta makes you smile for some reason.

    Um…no idea on the guy but will keep my eyes peeled as I am an LA local and also I tend to ogle the dogs in these situations, so it will be good “pay attention to the person” practice.

    Just read the orig interaction – that is a compliment to remember. Well done biker Santa.

    LOVED his compliment – and I 100% agree with him! x
