Finally the long and arduous hunt for a new roommate has come to an end.
S-man left big shoes to fill. And no one was coming close.
Sure there were some people that sounded interesting ,like the 23rd old from LA who was coming to do an internship at a magazine in Arlington. I googled him, he made the first of his 3 films at age 16.
Too cool for me.
The man who works for the Taiwanese government. Umm, maybe not.
Everyone had a different story, but like Goldilocks, I felt none of them were just right.
Then along came Elle.
French, 22 years old, with 6 month internship in DC, a footfall (American) fanatic, the 49ers unfortunately for her and she loves to bake.
We're talking French pastries. Macaroons, tartes, crepes, butter cremes,gateaus.
Well, that's what we talked about over dinner tonight....
Within hours of moving in, her room was decorated, her groceries were stashed away and she was happily nestled in her room working away on her computer.
Last night at dinner we were discussing social media and I told her I blog.
What do you blog about she asked. Well, I thought, you're up next.
The cats are vaguely interested but they're not making a commitment yet.
Wait till they get a mouthful of eclair.
P.S. And a big thank all to of you who opened up and shared their pictures and stories on As You Were. I loved the intimate glimpses into your lives.
We'll be doing this again. Once a month?
Can you tell what I'm like in person? The "come on guys let's put on a play" type.
Yup. That's me.
