smart is over. intelligence wins.

dialogue from within an elevator today (inside a super high security building – you couldn’t even LEAVE without showing ID – oh, my).

*teamgloria is dressed in a black trench coat and dark glasses in this scene.

MAN: sorry. didn’t mean to bash you with my bag.

tg: no worries. i know how to fight back.

MAN: [turns around] hey, [laughs] you look like a spy in the trench coat and dark glasses.

tg: [small smile] you never know.

MAN: [silence]

we are aware that the packed elevator turned round to study us carefully (being in a high security building, and all). we just stayed very still and terribly inscrutable and calmly checked our blackberry. nobody spoke. as the elevator/lift/electronicconveyance doors open, the crowd parted and we walked out first.

as if on a mission.

yes, darlings – WE LOVED IT.

don’t tell ;-)

ok. so (forgive) – we can’t tell you where we were – or why we were there – but oh, The View from the 50th floor corridors-of-power indeed! (take a look)

there was even a jetty…..(but we didn’t arrive by boat – this time)

and it was a Truly International set of fabulous women from the USA, UK, Ireland, Sweden and we heard a few other accents but those were the ones we met.

ahem.

did we let that slip?

yes. almost everyone in the room was female.

the corridors of power are indeed changing.

and the speaker was incredible.

a pensive weekend ahead, digesting everything we’ve learned.

oh life is getting Very Exciting, darlings.

#shiver.
