Not Nick Nolte's Diary, Malibu, California
April 26, 2005


This morning I was shooting the bull with my accountant when, referring to a previous discussion, she said she took quote copious notes unquote. The phrase hit me like a cartoon thunderclap. If you think about it, Diary, copious notes is not a good thing. Does copious not mean an excess, a flood or a bounty? Aren't notes a summation, an abbreviation, an account or an outline of events? The two seem impossible to marry. Hell, they said the same thing about Isabella Rosellini and Marty Scorsese so maybe my editor's cap is a notch too tight. Anyway, I took a breath, finished a concotion of Manolo's that has no name and let her continue. When to bet and when to fold is a sybaritical virtue I test in myself whenever I can. I just named the drink "a copious note" Diary. I think it works.
