About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Meet the New Emily

You chicks have seen The Devil Wears Prada, right? Ann Hathaway's character gets the job at the magazine, and Meryl Streep's character always calls her Emily. Emily...the girl who had the job before Ann H.'s character....

Well, guess what? D is the New Emily at her job with The Famous Handbag Company. She is reponsible for getting the boss's tea from Starbucks in the morning on her way in to work. One of her assignments today was to pick up the boss's perscriptions from Duane Reed, a drugstore as common on the streets of NYC as Starbucks is......and she was to take a cab to his building and leave them with his doorman, after which she could take the cab home, paid for on the company card.

Real life and fiction.....not so far apart, are they?

I would have loved to be an Emily in my younger years. Think of the stories she'll have to tell to her grandchildren. Wow!
