I hope you are both doing well. Flora, I am right there with you re "Is this it?"! Although I haven't arrived at "it" yet, I am starting to think I don't ever really want to get there! Especially if people like NM will be there too. So who is NM you ask? Well, I'll explain. After a rather uneventful week, my Friday evening was completely and utterly ruined by a meaner than mean email from a former boss. Why? She had gotten word of a little blog called the Eternal Intern and she was threatening me via email to remove all mention of her! I was hurt, then scared, then agitated and then irate. How dare she threaten me!
I couldn't for the life of me figure out why a woman with so much power and such a fabulous job would go out of her way to intimidate a former intern. Wouldn't it have been better to just turn off the computer and go home for the weekend? Perhaps she didn't even consider how much harm one little email would cause this Eternal Intern. Truth be told, I was choking back tears while reading. Needless to say my Friday night was ruined.
Don't feel bad for lil' old Ophelia though. I sent a dignified response clarifying my position, apologizing for the misunderstanding, etc. Funnily enough, I have never even mentioned her or anyone working for her in my letters.... until now that is! haha!
Bisous xx Ophelia
PS. All this has again left me questioning the ways of the fashion world. I think the three of us should get together and start our own business. Rose will be the film expert, I'll talk style and Flora, well Flora, ummm... what is that you do again? haha! xx
