Okay, so I lived in New York City for nearly eight years and saw/worked with a lot of celebrities and sort of prided myself for not being a star-you-know-what-er. But folks…I have to say, when Vern Yip called me about two hours ago, I was seriously


Which is not to say I take back everything that I said way back when…but still. I’m working furiously to transcribe the conversation so I can start editing it down and post it, but I just had to take a break and get the freak right out of me.

And also to say…what the H am I going to do tomorrow when it’s Candice Freakin’ Olson?

…and Genevieve Gorder?

I’m doomed.

Good thing there’s birthday cake to be had tonight. Yep, that’s right. Your friendly neighborhood design guru turned 43 today. And I spent it shopping for tile, delivering stuff to a client’s house, and talking to Vern Yip. But mostly I’ll remember talking to Vern Yip.
