This is me with Vivienne Tam. Gracious, gentle, kind, radiant Vivienne Tam. World renowned fashion designer Vivienne Tam. Not only am I in the same picture as her in her Boutique on Mercer in New York City, I am wearing a dress of her very own design from her spring collection that she gave me. I’m also holding a Limited Edition Vivienne Tam HP Mini Clutch. (Can you see it? It’s totally blends. I know, CAPTAIN OBVIOUS HERE.)
How did this happen? I’m still not sure. But I’ll go back and try to start at the beginning. However it’s the middle that is the most fun. It will include a recipe for Bacon Vodka, deadly spider bites, newlyweds, Chicago, a smelly pig, a gay man wearing a cape, a shuttle driver named Omar, endless amounts of meat, a mirrored headboard, mistaken identity, David Letterman and pregnant sex.
As I was walking back from one of the best Thai meals in recent memory I told Caroline “So much good has happened in the last few days I feel as though I need to bottle up this joy and save it for a rainy day. It’s too much wonderful for one day. It’s not fair to all the rest.”
I know there’s jealousy, I’ve said it before. I’m jealous of myself.
But you’d better believe I’ll be paying forward this goodness for a long time to come, and I will hold it in my heart forever.
Why did I do it this way? Because my favorite movie is “When Harry Met Sally.”
Harry likes to read the last page of a book first so just in case he dies he’ll know how it ends.
Not saying I want to die or anything, I just want to remember what has happened to me over the last couple of years. I set out with a lazy way of keeping connected with my family back home and ended up in a designer dress with the designer in her boutique in NYC during fashion week.
Now, how many of you are still hung up on the Bacon Vodka thing?
