Ocean's Eleventy-One

The answer is: No.  The question is:  Do you think Mrs. Linklater could get a part, nothing big, mind you, in the next George Clooney movie?

They're shooting the fabulous sequel to Ocean's Eleven not far from here and Mrs. Linklater is going to go out to see if she can find them. This is NOT stalking. This is investigative reporting.

The first sign of a location shoot is snow on the street in summer.  The second sign is a huge craft services table with several people called teamsters standing around it. That is their assigned spot, since their job is to stand around and eat.

Mrs. Linklater has always thought Craft Services was a misnomer.  It should be Kraft Services because the table is usually loaded with every snack item that Kraft, Mars, Quaker, and Kellogg's produces.

Yesterday it turns out the Ocean's Eleventy-One crew was filming around the corner from the house where Mrs. Linklater grew up. Yes, Mrs. Linklater was once a child. And nobody called to let her know they were there. The nerve. Perhaps when [not if] Mrs. Linklater can track them down, she can get George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, and the rest of the crew to pose with her for a Christmas Card photo.  Here she goes.
