Can’t believe it’s Friday already. This week slipped by in a haze of party afterbuzz.
First… people have been asking about the video that Richard and I shot. There is something going on with Spanking Tube — Rich told me that he has uploaded the video twice, and it still hasn’t shown up. He is going to contact them after his work day and try to find out what the problem is. I have every confidence that it will be up soon.
Next… my book has been reviewed on the blogs of Zelle, Bonnie and Dana Kane, and now that latest is Cassandra Park. Thank you, Sandy! You and I go back several years and I appreciate your kind words greatly. ♥
I thought I would address one of her comments here, since it’s quite a legitimate question and deserves an answer.
…since she has written that her dad was a well-known Hollywood comedy writer, and that there were actors and other famous writers at his parties and in her life, I was hoping for a little more about the issues of maintaining anonymity in the face of these associations.
You know, it’s never been an issue, and for a simple reason: These associations are long gone. My father passed away in 1998; Erica Scott didn’t come to be until 2000. Sadly, over the years, most of my father’s peers in the industry have died. I am quite removed from the Hollywood crowd and have been for years.
In my book, I mention a writer/producer cousin, one who was once partnered with my father many years ago and who had helped me a great deal when I was young. He is still with us, but he is in his late 80s and has several children and grandchildren… a second cousin is not on his radar. I haven’t seen him in years. So I don’t worry about him either.
Who knows… maybe someday, someone from my old life will discover me. If that happens, I’ll deal with it. But I’m not afraid of it.
Next up, a couple more photos from the Shadow Lane party. Here is the aforementioned shot of Sarah Gregory, Clare Fonda and me from the Friday vendor fair:
Rich was kind enough to take a nice picture of John and me with Mir and S, but unfortunately, I cannot show them. But I wanted y’all to see how handsome John looked in his suit anyway. 🙂
Also, I’d neglected to mention this earlier, but another couple I met at Shadow Lane were Kaelah and Ludwig, from the Rohrstockpalast blog. This was their first SL party and they’d traveled all the way from Germany. They were lovely! Soft-spoken and sweet, and both very attractive. I think I amused Kaelah, because I kept looking at them and exclaiming, “You two are so CUTE!”
Finally, back on the subject of my book, I have a huge favor to ask. For those of you who read it and like it, will you do something for me? Drop over to the Amazon page and give it a rating and a review. It doesn’t have to be lengthy; even a few words will suffice. So far, two friends have given it five stars and a lovely writeup (thank you!!), and I’m hoping others will follow suit. The blog reviews have been wonderful, and having the positive words on Amazon, where the mass public will see them, will be so helpful. Thanks!
John and I have no plans this weekend, and I’m not complaining. I think my post-party drop is physical this year, rather than emotional… I am so damned tired. All I want to do is sleep, and when I’m awake, I feel sluggish. Perhaps that’s due in part to the heat as well. I was telling a friend that it was a shock to come home on Monday and discover that So. CA was actually hotter than Vegas had been! Blech! Yesterday, there was a massive power outage that affected Orange County, San Diego and other parts of So. CA, all the way into Mexico and Arizona as well. About five million people, on one of the hottest days of the year!! But Los Angeles County was not affected. Feel like I dodged another bullet.
Have a great weekend, y’all. 🙂
