I sound more diva than I really was. They offered me a choice of pizza or Vietnamese, and I picked the latter. Still, it was nice being a diva for half a moment.

That's it. I definitely need to be a diva--I want wifi, and a hotel room, and sheets with an obnoxiously high thread-count, and a massage, and a personal assistant, and a personal chef, and a driver.
I want expensive chocolates, and abundant flower arrangments, and fancy-schmanzy bottled water.
I want to cancel things due to "exhaustion" when really I've just gone on a bender.
I want to expand time and be able to be in three places at once.
If I were a real diva, I could snap my fingers and make it so.
*For some reason, Lenora likes dots--the more the better. I think she may have a wee sadistic streak.
