I know that many people would be thrilled to have George Clooney and John Malkovich and all the dozens of film-production serfs right outside the door, but I just want them to go away.

Although yesterday was Mabel's birthday, and when I took her out for her midday walk there were paparazzi and celebrity-gawkers festooned all around the walkway and front of my building* and I think Mabel thought everyone was there to see her.

*my building is unusual; to enter one walks through an arched gate with a gas lamp and through a rather nice garden fronted by a low brick wall. There is a columned portico and three sets of doors, french doors flanking a big central one

I came home late Thursday in a cab and Cadman Plaza/Court Street was lined with big white trailers, many more than a usual production. I wondered what it was, forgetting what you'd said about the filming.
