bridget jones who forgot to leave her cinderella slipper - part II
read part I here
so i couldn't get this one off my mind....
it's rare that i'm really excited by someone...no.. more rare that i respect someone artistically and socially.
so i decided to reach out- something i've NEVER done before.
i don't chase.
i knew i couldn't ask my TriBeCA friends for his email- obviously, that'd be a hugely unprofessional breach in confidentially for them and i was honestly so embarrassed that i was even thinking of emailing him that i couldn't tell them.
so i got it another way.... don't worry about those details ;).
and wrote a quick little quippy note that basically followed up on about a few things we had talked about, congratulated him on the success of the film & casually threw out that if he was ever in nyc, i'd be down for a drink or to see a show.... easy, breezy, beautiful.
what if he was furious that i wrote on his personal email?!
come on! who wouldn't find that flattering....
wait! what if he thinks i'm a super fan.
i've never been so bold.
i generally have a policy that if the man doesn't have the chutzpah to come after me, he's not going to go after life.... and that's a turn off.
so i sent it.
a week later, my heart throbbed and my stomach dropped when i saw that he'd responded.
it was a short email.
kindly thanked me for my email and said he didn't plan to be in nyc in the near future....
then signed off.
which was a relative blow off ...but not humiliating.
there was an addendum:
p.s. be sure to like (the film's) facebook page and check it for updates!
he just relegated me to the league of superfans.
i'll never get over it.
i'm going into hiding.
