I Interrupt This Blog to Brag About My Husband...

Yesterday, David was nominated for a Tony Award. His second nomination. This one is for Slava's Snowshow, which played over the holidays on Broadway and was nominated in the Special Theatrical Events category.

Yeah. Yeah. I know the guy is pretty cool. Now, if I could get him to not leave balled-up black socks all over the house, as if he were leaving a trail for himself out of the woods, well, then we'd have something.

Of course, we're not planning on winning the Tony or anything. There are 4 shows in the category. And to give you an idea of the competition - He's up against Liza Minnelli (Liza’s At The Palace) and Will Ferrell (You’re Welcome America: A Final Night With George W. Bush), so you know, Liza and Will are going to collectively pummel his ass.

But I think we have a great shot for third place. That's something, right?

No matter. We'll be the couple at the Tony's telecast in June, drinking heavily from the flask tucked in my tiny beaded purse, intermittently twittering about the bored, over-dressed celebrities seated around us, and making a quick exit so we can be the first in line at the buffet at the after-party. And really, that's us in a nutshell, isn't it?

Seriously, what a lovely thing to happen to such a lovely man. And for the record, I totally married up.

What wonderful news!! You said it all "a lovely thing to happen to a lovely man". Think positive!! David could very well win - as for me I hope and pray that he does.
I'm sorry we didn't connect last Wed. There were 6 of us & it was hectic. We didn't get home until 1AM. You were so right about "Billy Elliot" - just awesome!! We ate at Portabello's near Washington Square. If you haven't tried it, I recommend it. Excellent Italian food at reasonable prices. We saw the actor Delroy Linda there. He spoke with us for a few minutes and was very friendly.
A day in the city is not enough. Too frantic. I need to plan on spending a couple of nights. That way, I can call you and we can get together for lunch or dinner and relax.
Congratulations to David!! xxxRita

Good news!! And congrats!

Congratulations! Consider yourself in second place. Liza is a sure bet but I don't think they're going to hand a Tony to the guy who made "Step Brothers", Talladega Nights" and "Blades of Glory".

Congratulations to David! That is great news.

Fantastic news. And you never know...Liza and Will could totally divide the vote, placing the Tony in David's manly, rock-climbing, flute-playing hands!

Congrats to David!

That is cool. A second time no less. Saw the Will Farrell show on HBO. Funny, but deserving of a Tony? This could be your/ David's year.
