friends of starryshine xmas wrap party
last night DJTM and myself had to go over to get sue for the wrap party of the special formerly known as a “very starryshine christmas special,” which, as you know, morphed into the “friends of starryshine christmas special.”
i really think that sue could leave the hospital at this point. i mean, she was only in there for a bad back and no one needs to stay in the hospital that long for a bad back. i was thinking she was fakin’ it for the meds, right? she confessed that that was a pretty nice side bennie to her hospital stay but then disclosed the real reason she’s still at cedar’s — she’s having her townhouse repainted and didn’t want to commute in from the hamptons so she figured it was easier to just remain infirm for now — and plus the park 55 lacked amenities like the kickin’ meds she’s on (sue was all, “just let those jackass sheistering doctors try to say i don’t have a bad back!” and then she started up with that weird hack/cackle sound effect thing that always kind of freaks me and DJTM out).
she is, however, beginning to tire of sneaking out for four martini lunches at elaines, etc. and have-to-see-and-be-seen-at affairs like the friends of starryshine xmas wrap party. i’m totally tiring of it too! last night i had to smuggle in a party dress for her so she could wear it under her hospital gown and then we had to wait with the car service near the smoking lounge window which she was going to try sneak out of and then DUH! she couldn’t because who makes windows three flights up that you can sneak out of anymore??? especially near midtown! after numerous cell phone calls back and forth between the cedars smoking lounge and the car, she finally relented and agreed to just walk past admitting and sure enough, low and behold, no one stopped her. she acted like she was in fucken’ lockdown or something. even DJTM, who is normally so placid about that kind of thing was visibly peeved.
although we missed the actual real time broadcast of the show, sue’s shenanigans actually worked to our benefit because when we finally did get to the party, it was in full swing. when we arrived, we were greeted with a standing ovation and chants of DJTM!!! DJTM!! apparently, DJTM’s rap song was like this huge hit at the party. i didn’t even know he was like writing a rap song. i mean, i knew he was doing a song but i had no idea it was a rap.
i’m really happy for him. i truly am. there’s no reason he shouldn’t get all the recognition that i truly deserve if someone, who is not me, is going to get it. i mean, he is my man, after all. who i’m pissed at is sue. if she hadn’t been languishing in a hospital bed at cedar’s all this time, i think it’s entirely reasonable to assume that a very starryshine christmas special could’ve gone in an entirely different direction and really could’ve showcased my talents more.
on the plus side, the wrap party was at sky bar which was completely classy and very now and i’m really happy to have hosted it without having had to deal with any of the details that come with hosting a party. i basically took the deal out of details! or the de out of the details so there was only tails. something like that.
