People who know me know that I don't get starstruck very easily... at least it takes a lot to impress me. BUT... when people I greatly admire are in the same room or actually comment on my blog, then yes... I'm ecstatically happy! So, I was just checking my emails this morning and it happened: Dorie stopped by to comment on my chicken b'stilla post!!! Embarrassingly enough I mispelled phyllo... it was a really quickly written post... but I never expected anyone to really pay much attention to it. Since I read about Dorie Greenspan and her career, I've had the fantasy of living her life-- living in Paris, NYC and Connecticut, cooking fabulous gourmet meals every day (and of course, also painting), and being surrounded by aesthetically and tastefully pleasing environments. Being starstruck aside, if she had physically stopped by, I would have invited her in for coffee or tea and would love to hear anything and everything she wanted to talk about! Ah, to spend the morning daydreaming of her life...... I better be off now to my real life! ;)
