we’ve missed you.
but we MUST return to the deadlines as who-we-are-in-RL (finally) asked for our help.
so we’re off to sharpen pencils and brew another pot of coffee and generally have our deeply-supportive-face-on.
you’d never know we were actually thinking about a (very long) weekend in Monaco or what william is up to in whitstable and whether the laurel canyon stores sell butterscotch angel delight because all the British Musicians like it after they’ve been staying out too late at chateau marmont.
it really looks as if we’re Truly Concentrating.
ok – but just a few – we’ve BARELY left the house for DAYS and have been subsisting on bowls of brown rice with kale (yum).
this is for Gallivanta because she knows how important Rumer Godden is (and not just because Mr. Willis and Ms. Moore named one of their children after her)
we saw a few flowers in the daylight when we managed to get outside to catch a few rays of sunshine and some vitamin D.
ok – we took a drive to the Ocean because we Really missed it (this was sunday)
but mostly we’ve been here (which is admittedly very nice and we adore teamgloria towers).
burning the midnight oil.
which we must Not do tonight because tomorrow we have a photo shoot.
and we’re not taking the pictures.
it’s a Proper Shoot with a Professional Photographer and a Stylist and a Make-up and Hair Artist and everything (there’s even an assistant).
guess who is in Front of the camera?
on Malibu Beach, no less?
who-we-are-in-RL is having her picture done for a MAGAZINE.
apparently she wrote a story and *slightlymistysadlook* you know, talked about Tobias (we almost miss him) and his sisters (they didn’t feature very heavily in the narrative, Tobias did most of the attention-seeking) and she even wrote about US – as in you behind the screen over there *peerswinninglythroughtheinterweb* and how writing as teamgloria (or allowing us, rather, to speak through her at last) and getting all your nice comments and help and support when (few of) you didn’t know who-we-are-in-RL-actually-was Got Her Through It All (we hesitate to say one piece because of course several bits of us are Missing post-surgery).
it’s a lovely story.
so they’re going to publish it.
not for a while – November issue (that means, confusingly, October, right?)
we can’t tell you which magazine yet.
because then it won’t be a surprise.
we adore surprises.
not as much as we adore butterscotch angel delight but there you go.
we must Not Leave The House.
we have to sharpen pencils and Get back to Work (three deadlines fast approaching which is delicious and Terribly Grown-up).
