'Twas the day before Christmas ... and lots of creatures were stirring at 7th and Montana. Some folks have skipped town for the holidays, but others -- like me -- are hunkering down at Our Favorite Starbucks if for no other reason than to watch Barista Sammy serve-up Grande Drips wearing a pair of Candy Canes on her head. Here are the latest in local Comings and Goings: Howard and Cathy are in Vail; Robin is in Wyoming; Robb is in Sacramento; Malissa is in Ann Arbor; Eletra is back in town with Fabrizio but Terry and Morgan are in D.C.; Genevieve is in Oregon, but her kids are in India; Screenwriter Nat and Robin are at home, nursing Einstein the Wonder Dog back to health; Barista Tyler is in Connecticut; Susan is in Paris; Leslie is local but will spend tomorrow in Ventura; the Screenwriter Brothers are back in town after ten days of re-shoots in New York; Bob and Joyce, Kathy and Richard are all, like me, staying put. As are the Pajama Girls who descended en masse at 7th and Montana this morning, giggling up a storm. Wherever you are, near or far, have a Happy, Healthy Holiday ...!
