The other day which feels like the other year wrapped in some other decade, Bossy was in Southern California. Bossy was particularly excited about the hours she spent in Malibu, since it provided the perfect opportunity for Bossy to meet her husband, John Cusack.
And as luck would have it, as Bossy drove along the Pacific Coast Highway, she spied John Cusack’s house!
Thankfully Bossy had her Los Angeles council to distract her from the disappointment of not meeting her husband John Cusack. Included in the meet-up fun were Shayera, Smacksy, Bossy’s host Glennis, Suebob, Jason, Kelly, Heidi, Barbra, Jim, Jennifer, and the always dynamic Tootsie Farklepants, with a special shout-out to Flat Debbie and Bossy’s L.A. cameraman:
But before you could say John Cusack why are you making all these lousy movies? it was time for Bossy to go to bed and start out the next day toward San Francisco.

Maybe John Cusack is not in CA now. Maybe he is in Chicago where he spends a lot of time, especially during baseball season. Look for him when you are here. Look along the lakefront in the high rise condos or in the Gold Coast. Or at his sister’s house on the north side. Have you met Joan?
Christina saysApril 27, 2010 at 7:37 pm
Still cracking me up that we have Shayera in common 🙂
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysApril 27, 2010 at 8:22 pm
I see friends! Hi JCK! Hi Heidi! Hi Jason!
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysApril 27, 2010 at 8:23 pm
Oh–and Hi Debbie’s face on a stick!
Gail K. saysApril 27, 2010 at 8:28 pm
Oh, didn’t we tell you? John is here in OHIO where Bossy’s (no) Book Tour is NOT.
Not that we are bitter or anything, but we are holding John for ransom or something like that. Oh, you mean you want John CUSACK? Not John K. my husband? Well, jeez, you marry one John, you have married them all! (Trust me on this, my friends who are married to Johns and I have talked about this at great length and we have decided it is true)
Lisa Rae @ smacksy saysApril 27, 2010 at 8:42 pm
Delighted to be included in your LA council and participate in the No-Book/No-John Cusack Tour.
(When I join the circus may I use Glennis as a reference?)
Jason saysApril 27, 2010 at 9:57 pm
Oh, how Bossy delivers the goods! I’m sorry you never found John, though.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysApril 27, 2010 at 10:04 pm
Maybe John Cusack was in the hot tub time machine.
amber star saysApril 28, 2010 at 12:14 am
I hope you find him…it is tiresome for him to be lostish while you are there.
Cactus Petunia saysApril 28, 2010 at 12:16 am
Wait. Uh…Cameraman??? Is it too late for me to redecorate my entire house before Bossy gets to Oregon?
P.S. John Cusack’s not here, either.
Aunt Snow saysApril 28, 2010 at 12:17 am
Excellent!! We all look fine! Too bad John wasn’t there! You sure he wasn’t belly-dancing?
Lis saysApril 28, 2010 at 2:03 am
Bossy! You were in my ‘hood! And it looks like you had a great time. I’m sorry you didn’t run into John C. I’ve had three John C. sightings, but all in Hollywood. In fact, one afternoon, I got stuck next to him in traffic, near the Hollywood Bowl. He smiled and waved…no lie. Of course, he was probably waving to snap me out of whatever slack-jawed-and-drooling spell I was under, or maybe he thought my car was overheating. Regardless, traffic started to move and our encounter was over. Next time I see him, I’ll send him your way. Have a safe trip! 🙂
heidi saysApril 28, 2010 at 7:32 am
have you followed JC on twitter yet? It will cure you. Trust me. 🙂
Mark saysApril 28, 2010 at 9:27 am
Think my wife might join you on the the hunt for John, brought a smile this morning
Megan (Best of Fates) saysApril 28, 2010 at 10:39 am
Hilarious! If John Cusak read this, I’m sure he’d fall madly in love and track you down.
Peeved Michelle saysApril 28, 2010 at 11:52 am
If only Peeved Michelle had been following Bossy’s blog prior to her trip. Peeved Michelle drives by John Cusack’s house (sort of…near-ish) every day on the way to work.
(If you follow @PeevedMichelle on Twitter, she might divulge this information in a DM.)
foolery saysApril 28, 2010 at 12:46 pm
Pretty sure Mr. Cusack is haunting Burger Kings and Seattle’s Best Coffee kiosks looking for his BOSSY. You’ll know him — he’ll be the one in the parking lot holding up a boom box.
Dharmamama saysApril 28, 2010 at 1:39 pm
Just sent ya an email – I hadn’t seen this post yet!
You can bid on Johnny. Or, more precisely, a day on the set of his next movie.
I’ll distract the others, you lure him into the cage disguised as a candy truck. Oh, wait – that was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Audubon Ron saysApril 28, 2010 at 1:50 pm
I like the one in the green jacket and blue dress. How much is that?
meleah rebeccah saysApril 28, 2010 at 2:56 pm
Now Meleah just misses driving on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Smalltown Mom saysApril 28, 2010 at 4:53 pm
Maybe John is on the circus train drinking slivovitz with the hungarians? Oh mah gah, Glennis had the BEST story.
Reeb saysApril 28, 2010 at 6:38 pm
Dear chesapeake bay woman,
Remember to add the ubiquitous (in iambossy-land but apparently not in real life) John C to the Husband list. Or does it not count if he’s not actually spotted? Hasn’t ever slowed Bossy down before…
JCK saysApril 28, 2010 at 11:35 pm
John C has nothing on your husband.
It was a DELIGHT, per usual…to see you in our L.A. vicinity. Thanks for bringing such a great group together again.
Wombat Central saysMay 3, 2010 at 2:50 pm
Dang. I was hoping to live vicariously through you to see some John Cusak. Maybe he hot tubbed back to the 80’s during the time you were in town. My dream is to be BFF’s with his sister Joan, because she is just that awesome.
