LA Meetup

Lest you think BGM is all bitter frowns, no happy grins, I received this adorable photo from him last night (that’s him on the left, duh), along with this message:

“So, Moneypenny was in LA for both fun and business… So, naturally, she hit up Bittergaymark on the FB. Soon, the two DWers were grabbing a long lunch at The Hollywood Corner where they bonded over their mutual loves of iced tea, Eames fiberglass chairs, and all things mid-century modern! It was a lovely afternoon — and such fun to FINALLY! meet another real LIVE DWer out in the REAL world! Come to LA, everybody! Bittergaymark will track you down to gossip about art, design, and the world of Hollywood!”

Now, where’s Moneypenny with her version? I want to know if BGM is really as sweet and docile in person as he seems on the internet (ha).

    Woohoo!! Oh yes, I can personally attest that all of the above is true. We were still chatting even after I got home. Believe it or not, BGM is an awesome dude!!

        I want to see a hot gaucho. (What’s a gaucho? My ignorance is showing. I just know it’s the UCSB mascot.)

        it doesn’t hurt to hear you say it from time to time. oh fun fact: a lot of english-speakers learning french translate that express to “du temps ‘au’ temps” (because “to” is “au” in French) but it’s actually “de temps ‘en’ temps.” I was so excited when I learned that. And there was your public french lesson service announcement.

        In spanish its more like the french as well (de vez en cuando), but the translation would make no sense haha.

      Nice… Lately, I am becoming so much of a fascist about MCM! Right now, I see the world in black and white. It’s either MCM taste or else it’s just plain BAD taste…

    Well, there goes my theory that BGM is really a housebound old lady who lives in Peoria.

      So how do you all track each other down on FB? Aren’t we all anonymous here? I follow Wendy on FB but I don’t know who anybody is because we all have fake names here! Does one just put 2 and 2 together???
