off to Manhattan to do a hopefully passable impression of Hugh Grant.


very exciting! who-we-are-in-RL has been Packed and Ready for the past 12 hours awaiting the Red Eye flight Tonight across the entire USA continent to the Other Side and the other Coast, in fact – for a WHIRLWIND business trip as a member of the global press corps.


which means – in effect – although we cannot (yet) tell you the Movie she’s seeing or the Movie Stars and Hollywood Director she is interviewing – she will, in fact, be doing a passable impression of Hugh Grant.

do you recall this scene in Notting Hill? not sure if you can see this transmission in your territory:

It’s all Tremendously Exciting – although we won’t be “crushing” on the Star/Director/CombinationOfBoth – as splendid as they both are – unlike Mr. Hugh Grant did with the lovely Ms. Julia Roberts (and who can blame him?)

so – that’s Ahead – for the next two days.

what else?

So Many Things (thank you for asking – *winninglooktocamera* – love)/.

let’s see – there was a cup of coffee with someone glamorous (you can tell by the Aviator shades and yes, we were discussing The Book)


the day started early with a drive and a delightful conversation with George but he had to go off and do things with his Family so we went alone to Chateau Marmont (see how you *almost* felt sad for us and then sat back in your comfy chair to say “oh well, Chateau Marmont, and very nice that is too!” – and you’re right. It. Is).

and we read a selection of the International press while eating eggs. always a winning combination.


and the Print Edition (Traditional Version) arrived in the Post of RED so we got to see who-we-are-in-RL on the Contributors Page (first time EVER!)

and she also was asked to write a small “blog post” to promote The Book (and the article in this month’s Red)


then after All That we had to come home and do the List of Things we Must Not forget (passport etc – even though it’s Domestic Travel and one CAN use a driving license to get to NYC, as an immigrant, one is always Advised to bring a passport) db446d90338311e39dfb22000a9e5ac6_8

we felt Rather exhausted at the thought of a car arriving to take us to the airport for 11PM (we so rarely see 11PM, darlings) so we rested well for a few moments and read a little more of the International Press (because that’s what members of the Global Press Corps do of a weekend, naturally).

we *almost* forgot to share this week’s column with you – it’s been Very busy over here doing research for the Hugh Grant impression (and he didn’t have to read a ton of books on artificial intelligence and neuroscience and Robots and the meaning of Life/Love and neural networks either – he just faked it with a vintage copy of Horse and Hound).

of course Mr. Hugh John Mungo Grant is an ACTOR and we are – well – we are – hmmmm – not Entirely sure what we are.

but it’s awfully delicious finding out.

see you on the Other Coast.

we’re staying at one of Mr. Trump’s hotels.

Hopefully in a Room with a View – we adore those.

Don’t you?

  1. It’s so exciting! I love watching all of this unfold. Love the Notting Hill reference and Hugh Grant was quite charming in it. I see that you’re here and hope you are enjoying the EC as a visitor. BTW, I posted a link to your book on my, ahem, FB wall.

    1. well *lookstocamera* we just signed a Confidentiality Agreement that we won’t tell *sighs* until the article comes out – which is in January…..forgive…

do say something - do :-)
