My (Mostly Real) Glamorous Life

On Saturday, I got to have a supremely awesome coffee date with Ambika, who writes the supremely awesome blog (Into) the Fray, and I can assure you she is just as gorgeous and funny and kind in person as she is online. Totally. Love. Her.

Now, I know what you're thinking: How in god's name did two bloggers of your caliber meet in a public place and not get mobbed by adoring fans?

Duh, we hired bodyguards.

The whole street behind us was evacuated.

Once we had the rabid autograph-seekers cleared out, we had a lovely time chatting about everything from cute shoes to our hatred of Big Media. We also decided that if we are ever chosen to record a day in our lives for The Dailies at Design for Mankind, we would try our damnedest to make it look like this:

7:00 am: Rise with the sun. Thoughtful partner serves me breakfast in bed.

8:00 am: Apply La Mer facial moisturizer and choose a simple Roberto Cavalli frock from the closet.

9:00 am: Begin reading War and Peace.

10:00 am: Finish reading War and Peace.

11:00 am: Meet forty of my closest, most attractive friends for brunch.

12:00 pm: Sit for a portrait with my thoroughbred, Blushing Bedlamite.

As opposed to a more realistic day, which, for me, might look something like this:

11:00 am: Rise with my boyfriend yelling, "You're STILL in bed??"

12:00 pm -- 4:00 pm: Watch a marathon of America's Next Top Model. Eat a shocking amount of cheese curls.

Damnit. I totally just killed my chances of ever being chosen for that feature. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go to the Opera with Alan Greenspan.

What amount of cheese curls is considered shocking these days?

To answer Wendy's question I would say it all depends on the type of Curl.
CLASSIC BAKED? I'd say you could push a bag and a half before it was shocking. As with the HOT, HONEY, and HOT'N HONEY varieties, one bag is the limit.
And as for the CRUNCHY FRIED, well... the pain is still too near for me to mention the CRUNCHY FRIED.

All the other pedestrians were around the corner reading Anna Karenina and Cool Ranch Doritos as a challenge match.

abmika looks lovely when she's smiling.

I'm really into blogger meetups...London bloggers..hello?

ms. spinach said...

ha! substitute "old episodes of gilmore girls and yesterday's oprah" for antm and "edy's samoa ice cream" for cheese curls and that is pretty much my life.

i am SO not getting chosen for that feature either.

YAY! so happily jealous (but in the happy way, not creepy, hence "happily") for your meet-up! you're two of my faves!
