I REALLY needed Nigella and Saatchi’s assistants this afternoon

the two sisters who were sued by Saatchi and Lawson for using their credit cards .. buying furs and fabulous gowns for themselves to the excess of a half a million dollars…….the sisters turned totally on Nigella revealing her cocaine habit to the delight of the British tabloids….they were acquitted last week…

Saatchi and Nigella…have been divorcing…since he was photoed with his hands around her throat….his finger in her nose..seated outside the posh restaurant Scotts (I think).in Mayfair……..

the reason my thoughts drifted to the Gritto sisters….was I was going through my downstairs candle closet…..and I have 14 years of candle boxes….all TOTALLY mislabeled….as I use 3 different sizes …..in my chandelier, on the dining table, over the fireplace, on the bar etc etc….my mother introduced me to Knorr’s Beeswax candles….50 years ago…they are dripless…and she use to send Aunt Betty a case for Christmas…. I have used them …well forever….love the 18 inch ones as they are sooo dramatic…so Gay!!!!!

I had NOT planned on spending part of my afternoon doing this….but since I am throwing the largest charades party I have ever had …in January…with 16 people….and having no Gritto sisters ….I thought I better take stock

Last night my roommate who left this AM texted me asking if we could get together in front of our roaring fire…to share a Christmas Glass of Cheer…..before she left today…

..she is so SO wonderful….so wise at the young age of 26….and has a fabulous boy friend…..the kind Moma wanted everyone – Gay men or Straight women to be involved with…he is a writer..has one of those Smiles that are blindingly brilliant……she a Fabulous actress…………has done so much at her young age…..

we talked for maybe at the most an hour…about EVERYTHING….from penis sizes….how Gay men always want a Big one….which must be painful she said…and I agreed…to Why are so many countries called “Asian”…now …she said in her earlier years (and remember she is only 26)…they were called Oriental…..I said well we called them Chinese or Thai or Korean…we didn’t lump them all together…..though we did use Oriental for Chinese primarily….

this led to talking about sex….with “Asians”….I told her…the girl that I will be forever grateful for having bedded….. taught me how to sensually touch a partner…… to prolong the excitement….her father was Second in Command of the Taiwanese Air Force ….this was in college before I realized I was Gay….but she was the cleanest smelling person that I have ever experienced…which led her to talk of the “Asian” she had experienced…he was Indian….but smelled SOOO unusual…and I said Bad??? she said Yes…..

though Meg has been living here for a year….we literally see each other at the most once a month….sometimes 2 months go by…she has her schedule and mine is so early that no beast except young tired drunks are up at 5 when I leave for work……as I cycle to work……..

I awoke this morn ….the latest I have in many a day at 8……happened to look out the window only to see Meg and Zach ….get into a black chauffeur driven car…..which makes me think of my Aunt Mimi…who years ago came to Los Angeles to be wined and dined by LACMA for her Japanese collection…she told my Uncle Sumner to order her a limo…..but “not a stretch”….and not to send any flowers to the room as she heard the St James’s suites were tiny……

my roommates “limo” was a Prius

but seeing it pull a way from the curb….and motor down our tree lined street brought a lump to my throat……..

I smiled and realized….

“I FOUND IT”………. when Meg knocked on my door all those months ago…………..
