Behold, Joel Stein!

I saw Joel Stein today. Yes. Lispy Joel Stein. In the elevator of the Time/Life bldg.

It was quite odd to see Joel from such shows as I Love The 80's and I Love The 80's Strike Back whose commentary I thoroughly enjoyed. It's also odd to have someone who thinks so much of himself that he writes an entire op-ed piece in the LA Times on how he DOESN'T want to hear from you (readers). Well today he stood humbly in the elevator talking to an unidentified older male about something newsy (I'm sure).

His hair was tousled, he was wearing a black wool trench, dark olive looking khakis and carrying a typical briefcase/satchel and looking ever the journalist. I couldn't help but smile and smile I did, quite foolishly. I felt a bit awkward for the other woman in the elevator whom I was having a great convo (before J.S. appeared) for she was now looking at the numbers willing them to skip from 24 to 1 as fast as they possibly could.

He was a lil kind though. As the elevator rested at the ground floor he left myself and the other woman aboard out FIRST, holding the doors open, (how sweet) while he exited after us. I whispered my "Thank You" and smiled all the way to the lunch room.

If only ANYONE knew of Joel, then they would comment.

BTW. Here is my shameless plug:
