well. well. well.
who-we-are-in-RL got Pretty Bold today and wrote something on Her blog (*sniffs* don’t you go Defecting over there, sweetie) because we told her if she wants to join us in being Tickled Pink about writing again, she needs to, you know, admit it.
so she did.
and we raised an eyebrow (archly and well-groomed, naturally) because it was actually rather affecting and she was a bit Overwhelmed after writing it because she is Used to talking about the whole geek-mode of the past (ahem) few years instead of Writing (we talk about it endlessly but that’s Our domain – literally).
it’s here, just in case you want to pop over There and take a look.
she’s rather shy in real life.
not that many people know that.
the accent is somewhat disarming and covers up for a great deal of inner turmoil apparently.
while she Wrote, we amused ourselves by reading more delicious vintage books from the Library and taking photographs of the creamy white roses, just blossoming gorgeously, around the apartment.
so after she had finished writing her sweet little treatise on how she became a Writer we took her out to dinner to celebrate at a small parisian style bistro (with nice American-trained-smiley waiters) near where we live – all dark blood red walls and vast vintage Orangina posters from the 1950s, ladies with Large Hollywood Hair and suspiciously real fur coats – considering this is Southern California and gentlemen with real Tans who probably used to hang out with Sue Mengers by the pool).
when the owner’s cousin (Cookie) came by to chat to us at the end and said “What do you do?” (she said it in French but we weren’t concentrating) we suddenly had to swivel our head in the cloche hat (we wear it when we dine) and gasp because you-know-who said.
Je suis écrivain
we gave her a little tickle and she pulled the soft Dior-gray/grey/ pashmina closer and looked quite adorable.
Cookie took our card (it has both Her site and teamgloria.com therein under the titles of [real-life] and [virtual] which was Most Definitely Our idea – and people always do a nice little smile when they see that) and said she would invite us to Events at the bistro so we can meet a deeply glamorous Hollywood Francophile crowd.
Isn’t that delicious?
a big day.
and tomorrow we’re driving into the desert (Palm Springs) – so excited!
so much to celebrate.
who-we-are-in-RL is getting a Little more comfortable with our new Life, it seems.
of course it’s because of Us – not just teamgloria – You! *smilinggentlyviatheinterweb* too.
we Overheard her saying to someone the other day “Oh, well, that’s gloria, she just sort of took over.”
like she didn’t get to have a say in it.
