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.
(this is why we only did 6 months on the Fashion Desk and mostly wrote about Photographers instead of Collections ;-)
and we only have a few Moments.
where were we?
and admiring our Stash of old magazines and books which we found in Pasadena at Cliff’s Booksah. This is a Treasure and no mistake.
we shall write more about this in due course.
what’s that you just said?
we did like it – very much.
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?
we can’t possibly tell you.
we signed all sorts of things *saidvaguely* but we’ll tell you later this year if we can.
and not an Arrowroot biscuit in sight….
looks like that half a grapefruit in a white bowl on the counter is our mid-morning snack then.
thank goodness there was
cheddar cheese oatmeal for breakfast or we’d be very hungry right about now.
