Christine, Efren and Tom. (09/16/07)
Efren has been a friend of ours since our earliest days in L.A. in 1992 when he used to work at Bullock's with Tom and Christine. He was even a groomsman at Tom and Christine's wedding three years later. Eventually, as life got busier, we saw each other less and less. Pretty soon it was once a year at Tom and Christine's Oscar parties before he ultimately dropped off our radar.
Incidentally, in case you're wondering why he has a painted face, it's because he stopped by the store on his way home from some fundraiser party.
Tom and Christine check out the new Martha Stewart collection at Macy's. (09/16/07)
The funny thing is the Ikea in Burbank is literally a few steps away from the Bullock's building (now Macy's) where the three of them worked together. If it was 1992, it would be an everyday occurrence to find me shopping with Tom and Christine at that Ikea. And running into Efren would be totally possible.
When you consider that Tom and Christine and I haven't shopped there together in at least a dozen years made this reunion all the more amazing!
