Had coffee with another guy who has been out of work for a long time. Is this healthy for us types to even be together? I mean do we support, encourage or just commiserate? Is commiserating a good thing? I think it used to be, but not anymore. He can't get arrested in New York either. And he has loads of fantastic credits and if it is possible to believe he is much nicer than I!
We met at Pain Quotidian. The one at 58th and 6th. Charming place to drop a tenner on coffee and a thing.
Here is what I gleaned:
It sucks out there.
There are no jobs.
It is going to be a long while yet.
Everyone working is like twelve.
Enjoy your life somehow.
I had an apple tart because I thought it was somewhat healthy.
