Introducing: TalliMarilynstein

I'm not actually here. I'm in... *pause for dramatic effect*... PARIS! Yes, my friends, as you read this, I will be stuffing myself silly with every croissant and macaron (not macaroon) I come across, skipping merrily down the cobblestones streets with a little red beret perched jauntily on my head. Hm, I think that's all the stereotypes I can work in for now.

So I'll keep this short, with a small reminder (not like you need it, with the way I've bleated on) that Willow's launch party is one week from today. Still loads of time to sign up to post on 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...'. Now's your chance to be whoever you want.

And to celebrate the one-week milestone... I give you a brand new creature, TalliMarilynstein! Yes, I've been having loads of fun playing around with my Marilyn wig and dress for an upcoming vlog (shudder) -- it's hours of entertainment, I tell you. Why Marilyn? In the novel, Willow's Marilyn Monroe impression gets spotted on YouTube and catapults her to insta-fame. The only problem? She's so not Marilyn material (kind of like me)!

Holy hair!

I'm trying for a cheeky look but it's not really working...
Well, at least I had fun! :) A bit too much, quite possibly...

  12. You do make a great Marilyn -- I should know. Her ghost haunts Meilori's all the time!

    I hate Blogger. It seems they kicked me off your Followers. I showed them! I joined back up! LOL. Have a great time in Paris. Keep an eye peeled for the haunted jazz club, Meilori's. It has entrances in colorful spots all around the globe! Stay up front though. Unless you're in your Marilyn outfit, then you'll be welcome in every part of the place!

    Have fun, stay safe, eat and enjoy, Roland

  45. That could be the new look for you....
    ...Although, you really should provide the iconic "standing-on-a-subway-grate-while-the-air-forces-you-told-hold-down-your-dress" Marylin Monroe shot.

    Man, that was way too many hyphens....

    ReplyDelete
  46. Enjoy Paris. You're making me homesick! At least I can buy excellent macarons here made by real Frenchmen. Better than Paul's in Paris, yay me!
