View from the Palais press terrace — 5.24.06, 3:25 pm.

And: (a) Lying duo Molly Hassell and M. Blash aboard the Big Eagle cocktail party for their film — Tuesday, 5.23, 5:55 pm; (b) Shortbus guys Paul Dawson and PJ DeBoy (or is it the other way around?…sorry) at Tuesday’s Lying party; given my sentiments about the film, I didn’t feel quite right about attending Wednesday night’s Marie-Antoinette party…something of a spot decision; (c) Just before a tour bus nearly ran me down — Wednesday, 5.24.06, 7:55 am; (d) Hotel Splendid.
