"i have to think these things up, you know"

so looking forward to seeing Drew Barrymore take on this role in tomorrow night's HBO production of Grey Gardens. as you may recall, i wept in honorific self-flagellation for my inner Little Edie at Christine Ebersole's performance of the same role on Broadway when i was in NYC in 2007. here (from the 2007 Tony Awards  -- she won hers): 

i've seen clips, and Drew seems remarkably good, as well. can't wait. and it must be said that if you've never watched Albert and David Maysles documentary, Grey Gardens, you simply must, daw-rhling.
