Saving the best for last…..

Our final guest writer is

Guess who


NOTE: Make sure you click on "guess who". And there will only be 3 questions due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Heartbreaking beautiful ! I was just thinking of how important ES had been for Johnny (and for us !) when looking at Edward's costume at the MoMA exhibition (it's a glimpse in one of the videoclips).

Johnny writes with so much feeling. Thanks Liz for making me (re)read this.

You're welcome, AnaMaria. :biggrin:

Fansmom, I know where you live. ;-) How wonderful for you that you can go there. :cool: Lots of TZ moments in Alice, BTW (at least in the annotated version). Rest assured, those of you who have chosen NOT to read the annotated version will get some of the information in the form of tidbits.

I was in New Orleans last week (part of the reason for my lack of participation here) and encountered pictures of Johnny twice: once in a book on absinthe and once as an ES caricature by an artist in Jackson Square. My personal Twilight Zone apparently extends all the way to New Orleans. :blush:

It follows you wherever you go. :yikes:

I saw that very same drawing by the artist in Jackson Square. I thought about buying it. I am a native New Orleanian and still live here. and have seen several drawings by artists in the French Quarter that are Johnny related. Anytime someone comes down let me know, would be fun to meet up.

My husband's first reaction when I said I wanted to go to New Orleans was "No, you don't," but after we went, he said he could imagine going down there again, maybe for a long weekend. (Don't take his initial turn-down personally; he'd only ever been there on shore leave so he'd only seen Bourbon Street, and he knew getting drunk isn't usually on my to-do list.) Lovely place--with or without Johnny references!

BTW, we heard a voodoo priestess speak one evening (Sallie Ann Glassman) at the Louisiana State Museum, which helped a bit when I read "On Stranger Tides."
