Swinginest Secretary, Moi?
Stanimal and I were delighted to attend the book signing party for our friend and thrice published author Lynn Peril! Her latest book is titled: Swimming in the Steno Pool, and I was enthusiastically awaiting it’s availability as her writing is always so witty and fun! Plus, she was hosting said event at the Smuggler’s Cove, a tiki bar in San Francisco I had yet to visit but was eager to! And not that I needed even more motivation, but she also presented an opportunity to enter a retro secretary contest!! Well, as you can probably imagine, that was right up my alley so I wore a recently acquired vintage dress, some old favorite 60s heels and a vintage purse that Stanimal found for me when he was out thrifting many years ago! I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and my expertly mixed sloe gin fizzes, the bartender was a stunning mixologist if I ever saw one! Then after visiting with our killer bay area peeps the contest began and we strutted our stuff down the stairs for the approval of the crowd and Lynn’s friends acting as judges! Well, a few lucky ladies including yours truly got gift bags and won in separate categories such as, most swinginest (me!), most reliable and a few others (my memory is obviously not so reliable, did I mention the amazing cocktails??). But the grand prize went to Carrie Swing for her 70s secretary rendition! A killer time was had by all! Whatta way to commemorate Lynn’s latest in a long line of stunning achievements!
