celebrity sighting #1

on sunday i had my first official celebrity sighting since moving to NY! very exciting. (actually, a couple of months ago i thought i saw these two actors from that show Weeds - the brother-in-law and the hot israeli chick - at an old-school punk rock show near union square, but no one i was with had ever seen the show so i could get no independent confirmation.)

so anyway on sunday i was getting my hair cut & dyed in this fancy salon (but i was getting it done on the cheap by a friend of a friend who's a stylist-in-training), and a famous movie star was getting her hair cut there too. okay, not so famous that i actually recognized her or have seen any of her work, but my stylist pointed her out, and i recognized the name from my gossip magazines: elisha cuthbert. (i always used to read that name and think it must be pronounced something like "eliza" with a "sh," but i realized today, after telling several people about seeing her, that it's probably just a weird spelling of "alicia." that would certainly make the pronunciation a lot easier.)

it was pretty neat. it made me feel like i picked a very posh salon, anyway.

    That's weird because I was just at this horror movie festival, saw 4 movies, and each one had the same preview for a movie called "Captivity" starring... Elisha Cuthbert (whom i'd never heard of till then)

    ps- name dropper.
