to Pasadena to see #MadsMikkelsen (not literally) in #theHunt (which was jolly good)

darlings

we’re Mid-Writing so Must Get Back to It (because someone is paying for our time)

it’s now 11.15 AM precisely (as the Speaking Clock used to say) – so this is what would be our Mid-Morning Tea Break if we still worked on the newspaper back in England – heady days *farofflook* when the lady-in-an-overall (british sort so a dress in nylon with a zip up the front and usually small blue diamonds on a white background, not american dungarees – confusing, non?) would trundle round with the trolley (again, british sort – tea tray on stilts – not a mechanical conveyance taking you up a steep hill) and say (invariably)

cup of tea love?

oh. yes please, doreen.

and a nice Arrowroot biscuit?

don’t mind if I do.

glad to see you’re not on a diet like those girls *sniffs* on the fashion desk *nodsintheirdirection*

oh. perhaps we won’t today.

nonsense. here you go – have two.

*sighs*

(this is why we only did 6 months on the Fashion Desk and mostly wrote about Photographers instead of Collections ;-)

gosh.

we digress.

and we only have a few Moments.

where were we?

aha!

Pasadena.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

we went to see The Hunt – and it was jolly good. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the light when we emerged at 7’ish was glorious!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a blushing floral experienceOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

an antique clock (pretty sure our grandmother had this exact model – is that possible? or an English Version at any rate)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pasadena seems to be Rather Radical in its “street furniture” (yes, that’s what they call it and not just in Pasadena – generally, one does, apparently)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

ah. the twilight. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and the long drive home. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and the Dennis Hopper-esque scenes from the window (when paused at a traffic light we hasten to add)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

cutting through downtownOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and admiring our Stash of old magazines and books which we found in Pasadena at Cliff’s BooksOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAah. This is a Treasure and no mistake.

we shall write more about this in due course.

what’s that you just said?

oh.

the movie?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAyes.

we did like it – very much.

and who-we-are-in-RL wrote a very deep and meaningful Review as well.

yes she does write Very Quickly.

which we must do now as well.

because we’re working on a movie (post-production – they’ve already made it).

isn’t that exciting?

which one?

we can’t possibly tell you.

sorry.

we signed all sorts of things *saidvaguely* but we’ll tell you later this year if we can.

must dash!

and not an Arrowroot biscuit in sight….

*sighs*

looks like that half a grapefruit in a white bowl on the counter is our mid-morning snack then.

yum.

*painedlook*

thank goodness there was cheddar cheese oatmeal for breakfast or we’d be very hungry right about now.

  1. The Tea lady, ah yes… memories…except he was the tea boy and really a boy; very young. Never a biscuit on offer but always lots of sugar. And yes you do write very quickly. It’s impressive. Street furniture??????????

do say something - do :-)
