Why am I telling you about this? Because A. I'm excited to check out the show and B. I was with all the above people on Friday night at the world premiere event!!
Yes, my Friday night on-the-couch-with-a-glass-of-wine plans turned into a last minute "in" to the event (thanks to Patrick's brother!) so I quickly changed out of my pajama pants into something a wee more fancy :)
some of my snapshots from the evening ::
the event took place at the NY Public Library, which is just breathtaking.
(you might recognize those stairs from this movie.)

That's the back of Kyra Sedgewick (Kevin Bacon's wife) right before I chatted with her! I told her she was fabulous and that I adore her as an actress and was very excited for her husband's show. She couldn't have been sweeter.
(pssst, Kevin Bacon in the corner)
After I talked to Kyra, we noticed that she & Kevin were making their way out the door. Patrick tells the story best, but it was literally like Kevin knew I was hoping to speak to him. He strolled past all of these people, came straight up to me, paused and looked me in the eye. I smiled and said, "I wanted to tell you that you are great." He smiled back and gave me a big thumbs up. It was a magical little moment.
So! Tune in or set those DVRs for tomorrow night to record the premiere; it airs at 9Pm EST on FOX!
until next time,
