Hello! I know you are very busy making toys and all, so I won’t take up too much of your time. I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you what a good girl I’ve been this year.
I have been very good. I ate my vegetables. I cleaned my room and made my bed. And when my TV show got canceled 10 days before we were supposed to start production, I didn’t even say any swear words! I didn’t even say “sh*!”. Nope. Not even once. How good is that? Instead, I looked at the bright side and saw the glass half full. I remembered how blessed I was regardless of being out of work.
I know you know how good I’ve been because you’ve been watching. So, in lieu of being nice and not naughty, I have composed my Christmas list for you.
1. Please ease the struggle for those who are suffering from the financial crisis.
2. Please end the war.
3. Please bring happiness and health to my friends and family.
That’s it! That is all I want for Christmas! I bet you thought I was going to ask for Manny and Furcal to be Dodgers, or for two starting pitchers, or for the Dodgers to win the World Series, or things like that. Nope. I would never. Not me. Well, I mean, if you wanted to bring me those things, I certainly wouldn’t send them back. You wouldn’t even have to make a special trip to my house for those things! I don’t think Manny would fit down my chimney anyway. Furcal might. You could just drop them off at Dodger Stadium. Yeah. That would be perfect.
Thank you, Santa Claus.
Thank you for your patience while I was filming the pilot. I had a great experience. Hopefully, the love I have for the rest of the cast will translate into a fun and funny pilot to which ABC will respond positively. We have a working title. It’s not the absolute, definite title yet but the working title is: Single With Parents.
Right before we started filming, I took the cast and the producers/writers to a Dodgers game. It worked out perfectly that I had a suite that night (I get four suites a year as part of my ticket package). We had a great time and it was lovely to be able to share my passion of baseball with everyone. I wanted to share this picture of Annie Potts, Beau Bridges and me at the game.
By the way, Beau is quite the Dodgers fan. In fact, when we were shooting, if there was a game going on, I would keep tabs of the score on my iPhone and would ask Beau if he wanted the score. He would plug his ears and say, “DON’T TELL ME!!! SHHH. I am TiVoing it!”
So much has happened in the world of baseball and the Dodgers since my last post that I don’t even know where to begin. The firing of Willie Randolph (not sure how I feel about that) and John McLaren; Bud Selig saying that “instant replay” in baseball is inevitable (booooo!); Brad Penny on the DL (I wish you a speedy recovery, Brad); Hiroki Kuroda has tendinitis; the news that Raffi won’t be back until after All-Star break; and the extremely sad news that the Baseball Hall Of Fame lost a beloved board member with the passing of the extraordinary Tim Russert. In this picture, he was moderating the President of Red Sox Nation candidate debates last year in Boston. I bet he’s watching Jackie, Roberto, Babe, all the greats, up there in heaven’s ballpark. Your insight will be missed, Mr. Russert.
