there were salads?

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

This past weekend I saw my friend X, who happened to be in town. I've known X for ages, and she's one of the sweetest people in the world, but I am SO jealous of her job. If you ask her what she does, X is all self-effacing and "oh, nothing really," but the truth is she spends a lot of time working with famous people, sometimes in a three degrees of separation kind of way, but lately in a "Hey, I'm going to be with CELEBRITY all day tomorrow" way.(She also works insanely hard but obviously I'm not jealous of that, as I am lazy)

Anyway, back to the important stuff, which is that I want X's job! Or at least the hanging out with celebrities part of it. I mean, when I saw her, she told me how she'd just spent the entire day working with someone I can't name because X would kill me if I did. But we're talking FAMOUS! And she was so cool about it, all, "Yeah, famous person did this, and while we were waiting, we had salads. And the salads were AMAZING!"

Whereas I would have been "OMG FAMOUS PERSON!" and not even noticed the salads.
