i had a really rough day today and now i can't sleep. well i need to get my head out of my rear.
the other day one of my good friends told me about a friend of hers, another actress in about the same place as we are, who just discovered she has advanced stage cancer.
and today, 6 blocks from where i spent the entire day downing over the counter drugs and trying not to have a complete meltdown:
"A homeless man died in Union Square today. Not huge news, but his dead body was on a park bench near the cops who congregate at the south-eastern portion of the park. Several people went up to the group of police to mention the man was passed-out or dead. Around 9am, a group of (austrian/german) tourists were adamant with the police the man needed some assistance. The only reply came from a chris noth lookalike cop who said 'Why don't you go push the man. I ain't touching 'em. He could be napping, you wanna take that risk? Go home.' Around 11:15am paramedics (unknown ambulance unit) arrived and took the man's vitals. About 20 minutes later they put the man on a stretcher with a blanket covering him. He was dead by the time the paramedics arrived. Excellent Police work."
lesson: get over it, chris.
