    What Did We Eat Today?

    For dinner I got to do the “lemon buttered noodles” thing again. I also managed to get enough lemon squeezed out so the taste was more prevalent, or maybe the kitchen managed to get more butter (or whatever they use for butter where I live) on the noodles that ended up on my plate, & I thought it was better than the last time. I had them with an order (3 pieces) of fried grouper, which was our designated seafood of the day & my way of getting ahold of the lemon for the noodles (the kitchen knows I sometimes eat weird things together/am a picky eater, etc., since I’ve been living here for almost 2 years, but it’s gonna take me awhile to order “an order of just the noodles from the ‘whatever over noodles’ special & a lemon wedge or 2” without ordering something with the noodles & lemon (besides salads, which I hate) that gives me a believable reason to ask for the lemon wedges to go with my dinner (or lunch, when appropriate).

    From about a week ago... From USA Today: Kobe Bryant and Wife Vanessa Welcome Baby Girl The baby, Capri Kobe Bryant, is the couple’s fourth daughter and fourth child. She was born on June 20th &, besides her parents, joins elder sisters Natalia, 16, Gianna, 13 & Bianka, 2 in the Bryant family.
  3. Plummer even received an Academy Award nomination for his performance. All things considered, it’s doubtful Spacey would’ve received 1 if his performance had been left in the movie.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    From Royal.UK: New Patronage Announced for The Duchess of Cambridge—The Duchess of Cambridge Has Become Patron of The Royal Photographic Society Until handing the patronage down to her granddaughter-in-law, The Duchess of Cambridge, earlier today the Queen had been the Royal Patron of the Royal Photographic Society for 67 years. Considering the Duchess is very interested in photography, & a very good photographer herself, judging by the beautiful pictures released on special occasions of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge’s 3 children which are credited as being taken by the Duchess herself, I’d say the match of the Duchess with this Royal Patronage was an appropriate & very good 1.

    Today, which apparently would’ve been the late Chef & TV Food Personality Anthony Bourdain’s birthday, is unofficially “Bourdain Day”, according to his friends who created it. Among events set to mark the day, the announcement of an Anthony Bourdain Legacy Scholarship, for students at the Culinary Institute of America pursuing a semester abroad, taking part in 1 of the CIA’s global cuisines & cultures international programs, & ultimately the opportunity to follow Anthony’s global path of discovery & curiosity.

    The linked article says she did get an eternity band; but they’re saying it was an anniversary present. It could’ve been both, really, since Archie’s birth & their anniversary are/were only 13 days apart—May 6th & May 19th, respectively.

    In Memoriam: Celebrity Deaths

    According to her Wikipedia page, Judith Krantz was the sister-in-law of the late ventriloquist Shari Lewis (probably most popular in the ‘60’s & ‘70’s—& another celebrity I was fortunate enough to have met through my March of Dimes work). Ms. Lewis was married to Ms. Krantz’s brother, Jeremy Tarcher; Ms. Krantz used her married name professionally.

    That’s actually not the video I mentioned, with all due respect. The video you linked to was of Ms. Vanderbilt’s video obituary which, for better or worse, her son Anderson Cooper narrated (I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing if you have a child who could have to eventually read your obituary on a newscast; especially if it’s national) & which aired on the day she died, June 17th, if not into June 18th. The video I most recently linked to above is a different video—it’s of Anderson talking about his mother, again, on his CNN newscast in the last day or 2, upon returning to work after having taken time off due to her death.

    From Access: Anderson Cooper Speaks About His Late Mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, Upon His Return to Work at CNN This was edited with some comments not in the order they were said, which should be clear when you watch the video. But it’s worth watching. According to the video, Ms. Vanderbilt only found out she had advanced cancer on June 8th & she died 9 days later, with Anderson & other loved ones nearby, on June 17th. Because they didn’t even have 10 days together post-diagnosis, you can probably guess what I’m thinking... the same thing we always say in posts when cancer gets its grubby little mitts on someone.

    From The Hollywood Walk of Fame: The Hollywood Walk of Fame Announces Its 2020 Honorees Not all of those named will necessarily have their star placed on the Walk of Fame in 2020. They were named yesterday & have 2 years from that date to set up their unveiling ceremony—which means ceremonies for the named celebrities could be going on as long as until June, 2021. Should named celebrities fail to set up their ceremony within the next 2 years, they’ll have to start at the beginning of the selection process again; should named celebrities predecease their induction into the Walk of Fame, they would then have to wait 5 years after their death to be inducted posthumously, with the family’s permission & the participation of a family member in the induction ceremony. Some named celebrities may never set up their ceremony because they don’t mind getting the star, but they don’t want to participate in the ceremony (participation of a living honoree or a family member of a deceased honoree is a requirement for induction) or because they just aren’t interested in having a star on the Walk of Fame. There’s a celebrity named on this year’s list who has been said, in previous articles about the Walk of Fame, to be either the former, the latter, or both in regards to getting a Walk of Fame star. It’ll be interesting to see when/if they follow through with scheduling their ceremony.
