An On-Line Journal
by Paul Buceta
2003 09 07 - Every September...

I started German school for another year.
Every year it's the same thing with me, I always say to myself, "This year I'm going to nail it", but I always end up stretching myself too thin and never really giving my German studies the amount of time it deserves.
This year looks like it will be no different, this week alone, I'm covering the Toronto International film festival. I started my coverage last night at the Gala event for the movie Matchstick Men starring Nicholas Cage and will be back tonight for two more movies.

I am also scheduled to go Sunday night to another Gala and more as the week progresses.
I don't mind the film festival so much, although it's a serious distraction from my studies.
I covered this event last year and for the most part, had a good time.
You see, the Film Festival is one of those events that is difficult to consider as work.
Being around such famous people makes for great conversation and journal entries.

It would be nice if I could get Woody Harrelson or Nicole Kidman to join me for a drink and some pics for my journal.
I think I would be great as the instrument of jealousy for Tom Cruise - Nicole, if you're reading this, HINT HINT.

Here is what the madhouse looked like.

Can you see me back there?

It wasn't all bad. As a matter of fact, it turned out pretty cool.

I met some friends there. Remember Zoe?

Could you tell we were chewing the same gum?

Here we are again with Tanya Kim of etalk DAILY fame.

My GOD! They are both stunning.

And to top it all off, here I am with Bob Goen of Entertainment Tonight.
Paul and Bob Goen

He's a bit taller than I had expected but that doesn't stop me from wanting his job.
That grin on my face says, "Tick tock, watch your back Bob".

Hell, even his cameraman thought I looked better with the microphone.

Anyhow, it's really late right now and I have another long day tomorrow on the red carpet.

And for those of you who are have been curious, yes, Paul Buceta kisses ass!
