Waiting for Zooey Deschanel

m_waiting.jpgAmusing piece at LA Eastside by guest blogger Matt Lucas on waiting at that Angelus Plaza bench for Zooey Deschanel to appear, as she did in "(500) Days of Summer." "I’d seen her image everywhere, in everything," he begins. "I was enraptured, enthralled. I couldn’t think of anywhere to meet her that would be more appropriate than in Los Angeles, the city of angels. I left work, and home, to sip a moment of time with her." He rode Angels Flight to get to the little park from where Deschanel's character Summer and her boyfriend would admire Downtown: "If she met Tom here, she would surely meet someone far better than that douche."
