Email from Loretta re Bungees II


RE: re bungees

Ah well, no panic, I shall have to get a few gitanes out of the way before you arrive.

Email from Loretta re Bungees


RE: bungees

Listen, can we meet for dialogue at Bungees coffee house and Folk cellar instead of Starbucks? My new production 'The gay guy drinks coffee - an interpretative dance' is set in beat-era San Francisco and I need to get into the zone. And you can still smoke there which is a blessed relief. Oh dear, will a smokey, damp cellar be bad for your blessing?

Legwarmers, whittling and Scarlett Johansson

Ugh, still feeling grim, hope this morning sickness passes soon. And it doesn't help that Ludo wakes me up every morning at 6.00 to go running (he's training for the marathon, the crazy fish). He's such a picture in his yellow leg-warmers and earmuffs. Oh, I do love him so.

He's being ever so sweet about the baby - talking of whittling him a bow and arrow in the woods, making camps in the trees. I think he secretly (or not so secretly) wants a boy as he never speaks of girl related things.
This week is half term and he's teaching a children's graphic illustration workshop at the Design Museum!

Anyway, haven't even thought about Issue 12. I hope I'm not already losing all my creativity because of said blessing. Must crack on. I shall begin tomorrow...Oh no, tomorrow I'm off to Tokyo to shoot Scarlett Johansson dressed as a Harajuku girl for Vogue Italia. Next week then.

Nice for Nance

RE:elle deco!!!

Hey Pip! You'll never papier-mâché tea light holders are going to be in Elle Deco! They contacted me this morning for pics and info!

Thanks for believing in me.


And I thought they were just a fire hazard.
Well, I suppose what with Yo Beowulf - a shadow puppet cabaret coming to the end of it's run, it's nice for Nance to have something exciting in her life.

Thursday, February 08, 2007 with the new

Ludo Jansdotter stopped me mid-sentence the other day and said "Pippa, don't you think since we are going to have a child together it's time you stopped calling me 'Ludo Jansdotter'? 'Ludo' will do."

I suppose he's right. He's not really 'Ludo Jansdotter' anymore anyway, not the Ludo Jansdotter I used to google, and keep cut-outs about from Design Week and follow around at photography exhibitions. He's just my Ludo, and I should embrace that.

Pippa's Icons #1

Hey, here's the first in my new series (as if I have the time) 'Pippa's Icons'!
#1 Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde.

Isn't this the most modern yet timeless outfit you've ever seen? The beret, the mustard cap-sleeve jersey...sooo A/W 06-07!

And as if it couldn't get any more this season...a trench!

Never mind

I failed Prog Urdu level 3. Not embarrassingly just a possessive pronoun mix up...again!
Oh well, I've too much on my plate at the moment what with Nancy moving out, Issue 11 and the whole baby thing. I simply couldn't concentrate.
Shan't give in however, I will try again next month.
Never mind.

Out with the old...

Nancy is moving back in with Pedro this weekend which is a blessed relief. Ludo Jansdotter and I haven't actually discussed it yet, but if he does move in, it doesn't seem right that Nancy would still be there. Their history doesn't bother me, he just has a slightly nervous energy when she's around and she's an incorrigible flirt!

Anyway, I shan't miss her random origami birds cluttering up my mantelpiece, nor her decorative bowls of lemons, nor her growing collection of Jo Malone scented candles - what a stink!

Storm in a soup bowl

Quite a late night last night but it's so nice to be able to thank my team personally for their hard work on Issue 11. My sun-speckled bream potage went down a storm! And I do believe I detected a mild flirtation between Graziella and my typesetter Toby Van Cleef!
