Living Like Ed

Every day, I walk past Ed Begley Jr.'s house. (Yes, I will tell you where it is, for a new car.) He has the most amazing front garden full of fruit trees, rosemary and lavender shrubs, drought-resistant plants, etc. Supposedly, his white picket fence is made from recycled plastic milk jugs. I call it "Ed's Big Garden of Guilt," because that is how it makes me feel. Mission accomplished, Mr. Begley! Junior! One can only imagine the energy-saving goings-on inside the solar-powered house. Begley signs Living Like Ed: A Guide to the Eco-Friendly Life, which is printed on paper from his own recycled toenail clippings. It should also be noted that he regularly wears Birkenstocks with white socks, which the earth does not approve of. Tue., Feb. 26, 7 p.m., 2008

    The Oscar gift bag began in 2001 as sort of a children's party favor for the nominees and presenters. You know, just a little $10,000 goodie bag filled with some candy and trinkets.
