Celebrity Sighting AND High Culture!

An honest-to-goodness two-fer! Great art and a celebrity sighting. In this case, it was a new German art exhibit at LACMA and an up-close-and-personal view of Mindy Kaling, who plays Kelly on "The Office," one of our very favorite shows.

Mindy was accompanied by a female friend and wearing a fabulous green and navy coat, entering as we were leaving. True to her character's nature, she was chatting, chatting, chatting, the whole while. HH's mouth dropped open just as we passed (you gotta keep it together when you walk by and pretend you don't notice celebrities so they don't get skittish and run away) and he said..."That was Kelly! That was Kelly!"

God, he's so uncool.

Anyway, the exhibit is fantastic, for anyone who lives in the LA area and wants to get cultured. It's called "Art of Two Germanys" and it's German artwork from the 1940s through the 80s. It opens today but because HH and I are patrons (my one contribution to the art world that I suck every bit of life out of), we saw it on a members-only preview day.

Yay! I love art.

And of course, famous people.
