Thank Heaven for Paris   Leave a comment

I had to meet the photographer in Paris — but the only taxis were these vintage hacks.  But it was a fun ride!

Each time I see a little girl
Of five or six or seven
I can’t resist a joyous urge
To smile and say

Thank heaven for little girls
For little girls get
Bigger every day

Movie Night   2 comments

Jem and Diana arrived on board the starbase at my invitation for a girls’ night yesterday, full of questions over my call to them.  In reply, I showed them up to the station’s upper level in the “quarters” sector, and through a roundel door into the answer.  “Behold, mesdames.”

Both my friends glanced around, until they lit on the screen and control panel.  “A holodeck?” Jem asked.

Traditions   Leave a comment

 

4754 C. E.

Among the traditions that had held on in show business, the Green Room was one of the most persistent.  Nobody knew for sure why the room set aside as an actors’ lounge was called “the Green Room,” and Ariel Sherman had heard of many rooms that weren’t painted or otherwise decorated in green, but there the name was.  And when they had built the original Land of Fantasy Theatre out of the old pleasure house, Ariel had included a Green Room — though it was a touch more open to other people than just the performers in the revue — and insisted it be “correctly” decorated with green walls.  Though she doubted few theatres had ever gone in for expensive draped green satin wallpaper; but, with the seed credit the cyborgs of Videra had to start with, why not splurge a little?

She did the same thing some ten years later, when The Land of Fantasy added a supper club to the front of the theatre building.  Again, walls hung in green satin, gentle holo-abstracts and other artwork, and comfortable furniture provided relaxation for performers preparing to go on before the club’s patrons.  And, as the club’s first performer — a change from starring in the main revue for so long — there Ariel was, breaking in the room … with a nasty case of stage nerves.  Why in hell do I put myself through this? she wondered in her mind as she dragged hard on her cigarette holder.  Years of performing six nights a week, multiple interview appearances on the ‘screen, even two virt-vids to my credit by now, and I still get stage fright before an opening.

Walking off my tired feet

Winter Interlude

A lovely long gown, and the complete, sinful luxury of heavy “furs” in a hat and stole, all on a winter day — what more could one ask?

One note here:  Belle Epoque’s gown has its own arms, so you’ll need to mask out your own arms if you get this package.  In fact, I needed to mask most of my body, except for a slice from below my neck to my breasts.  So don’t worry too much about your elaborate library of poses, outside of favorite stances on your legs.  In compensation, the gown and furs are HUD driven, so you have a selection of colors and fur types to choose from.  I have a taste for grey fox, so ….
