When Paris Met Harold

Suggestions please for Paris Hilton's British best friend. I nominate my own new best friend Judy or, of course, that party animal Harold Pinter.

  1. In your Pinter piece you say that you don't like his plays less because of his dismal politics.

    I wish I could say the same, but I can't. Pinter's politics make me think he is an idiot. Therefore, I can't help thinking that his plays are only pretending to be clever and are, in fact, stupid.

    (That said I did like the movie of The Gobetween but that might be only slightly Pinter's fault).

  2. Brit, I agree with you. And his stupid poetic screed against the Iraqi war was even worse. Politics make VERY bad poetry which is why no one knows Elizabeth Barrett Browning for her dozens of poems about the Risorgimento & Garibaldi.

  5. I thought you were Paris' best British friend especially after... ummm.. the incident while you were in the US.

  6. Hey, Bryan: That's the second time Tom P. has made that reference to you trysting with Paris. Are you going to enlighten us?

    Personally, I'd have thought Nicole more your type.
