we had a most glam (and slightly overwhelming) day yesterday (due to the nature of the Helmut Newton Press Preview – we adore a press preview – more on that later – piece goes Live at 2PM!) and in the middle-of-it-all, we checked our digital device and said
hurrah! our column just went live at noon
which is ever such a nice feeling.
oh. you are Most Kind.
several of our friends are married (more of them are d.i.v.o.r.c.e.d but we live in difficult times, darlings) and some of them are married to men and some are married to women and some of them Are men (who are married to men) and some of them are middle-aged hollywood executives who have trophy wives (and yes, are women themselves but it seems a mid-life crisis of fast cars and faster blondes can hit anyone, love).
it’s not something we’ve ever done (marriage or d.i.v.o.r.c.e) – and we’ve not Yet reached a midlife crisis although our Friends of who-we-are-in-RL have raised an eyebrow at Some Of Our Choices……
so when we heard of the Jubilation in the Streets of West Hollywood, we knew that the learned Judges in Washington had made a good decision.
our friends at the Guardian have a nice piece here if you’re mystified by the discursive nature of our dialogue.
so that’s lovely.
can we be a Little Controversial for a moment?
we have to say we are disappointed that everyone felt the need to be so Acceptably Corporate and dressed-for-the-middle-cubicle in their Attire – *sighs* – we get the point – they don’t want to shock the horses but really?
we wanted to be Different.
we never wanted to Fit In.
don’t let your beauty fade.
