The day has so far included a little writing and researching, and then a four hour hang-out at West Hollywood’s The Grove with Awards Daily‘s Sasha Stone , Gold Derby‘s Tom O’Neil and Coming Soon‘s Ed Douglas (including a recording of a one-hour Oscar Poker), and then back to the pad to bang out two articles before preparing to hit the Fox Searchlight Golden Globes viewing party at the Beverly Hilton.

Except now it’s 4:29 pm and the show starts at 5 pm so maybe I’ll hang here and watch Ricky Gervais‘s opening monologue and then head over to the party. Everything always takes more time than you figure it will…every time.
