Another Day Another Meeting

Posted by Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 7 January 2012 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

Still running around with too many things. Here a meeting at the Beverly Hills Hotel where they have excellent banana cream pie.
Busy all day. Back to the blogs by tonight!

there was a facebook challenge today where you found the #1 hit of the week you were born and you should post it without shame on your wall. well I looked mine up and it was perry como singing til the end of time. this explains why my generation felt the need to reinvent popular music. no, offense but when I see the words beverly hills I always thing hillbillies and miss jane and the cement pond and grannie....loved that show! cool iconic pic

But at least it's a meeting at somewhere special! I stayed there a few times, back when I was rich. Loved it!

@Richard: Hey, me too! Used to live there for weeks on end. Wonder if the same pool guy is this there. ... The pool guy's name was Sven. I spent weeks on end there. Used to more calls than Clive Davis, sitting poolside when the operator had to announce your phone calls over the intercom. The salad days.

All I can recognize in this is the concrete . . an alien world to those of us under gray skies and with banana cream pie still on ration. Just let me know if the pool-guy job comes up, Bettina.

Alas, it would be the Best Western Beverley Hills for me...just down the street about 13 miles and around the corner right next to the Unocal Refinery ...
