From Miami to Milan

Brad Pitt, I think, in Troy.  That’s a beautiful man.  There’s no denying it.” 
Jacob Elordi tells Jimmy Fallon his first celebrity crush.  If you can’t place Jacob,
you’ll soon see him playing Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla.

I spent last week in Milan.  Correction – I spent last weekEND in Milan.  Yes, 48 hours in Italy.  What can I say – it was an invitation that I couldn’t pass up, although I probably spent more time in the air than in Milan.  But some things are worth traveling for.  A few days earlier, I was part of a memorable lunch in Fort Lauderdale filled with a number of people I’ve known for over 25 years – including legendary drag divas Thirsty Burlington, Varla Jean Merman, Joe Posa, and Joanna James.  We all started out as little club kids and all developed a level of notoriety that…well, defies defining.  We don’t see each other as often as we used to, but these are people with whom I can pick up a conversation we started decades ago.  Looking around that table, I felt terribly nostalgic for the people we were – and awfully proud of the people we’ve become.  Let’s do it again….soon!
