38 -- Starving for Sydneyside Summer

NOTE: This blog is a continuing dialog between the two faces of rilla. The identity crisis is explained (if such a thing is possible) in the first edition. Click here to read: 1 -- Introduction

Rilla: Yes!
rilla: Sorry?
Rilla: I'm so glad you asked.
rilla: About what?
Rilla: If I had a fabulous time in Sydney. I did!
rilla: I didn't ask.
Rilla: Oh.
rilla: I didn't even know you'd been to Sydney.
Rilla: What?

rilla: When did you go to Sydney?
Rilla: In December! You don't remember? Nothing at all? How about the incredible food?

Rilla: Or, going on our favorite hike in the Blue Mountains...

Rilla:...down the Charles Darwin walk... Wentworth Falls?

Rilla: No? Then how about the incredible food?

Rilla: And the cold blustery day we revisited the Three Sisters...

Rilla: ...and Fitzroy Falls?

Rilla: Still drawing a blank? Then what about drinks with friends...

Rilla: ...the fabulous port?

Rilla: Seeing our old apartment in Pyrmont?

Rilla: Hmm...OK. Let's see. Huh! You really don't remember the incredible food?

Rilla: Or seeing the Opera House and wishing we had time to take a ride on the Manly ferry again?

Rilla: Visiting friends and their beautiful homes and gardens...

Rilla: ...and families?

Rilla: ...even when they fought over our shoes?

Rilla: ...not even the incredible home-made food?

Rilla: Nothing? You're hopeless.
rilla: That was a lot of food!
Rilla: Yeah! My diet went for a six.
rilla: You're on a diet?
Rilla: We were discussing Sydney.
rilla: And your diet.
Rilla: No. We were talking about food and friends...
rilla: YES! I do remember having dinner with someone special.
Rilla: So it's not alzheimer's yet...
rilla: It was great. We had dinner down by the toaster. She is the...the...hmm...the...
Rilla: It is alzheimers, after all.
rilla: I have it. She is the West Sydney Children's Officer.
Rilla: What were you doing having dinner with the police?
rilla: No, no, no. She is the Western Sydney Young People's Officer.
Rilla: Armed forces?
rilla: NO! Why can't I get this right? Judith, help me out here.

Rilla: Judith?
rilla: Yes, that's me with Judith and Harriet. We spent the whole evening discussing...that's it...Judith is the Western Sydney Young People's Literature Officer.

Rilla: Literature Officer? As in censorship...?
rilla: Good Grief, NO! She...she...what do you do, Judith? Hey! Maybe, Judith can tell us what she does if we interview her on this blog.
Rilla: Sounds like a plan to me. Nothing like keeping a blog and getting someone else do the wor-writing! Maybe we can have dinner with her too.
rilla: You still on that diet?
Rilla: What diet? Why would you insist...?
rilla: You seem to be inordinately stuck on the notion of food.
Rilla: I'm fine. I really am.

rilla: You sure you've had enough to eat?
Rilla: Of course, I have!
rilla: Yeah? Then why's this keyboard dripping wet?

Rilla and rilla, I would be honoured to be interviewed on your blog! Thanks!

rilla said...

Thanks, Judith! We're working hard on those questions!

LindaBudz said...

Hi, rilla! Looks like a fabulous trip! And I can't wait to learn what Judith does!

rilla said...

Hey Linda,
it was! And to tell you the truth, I can't wait to hear what Judith has to say for herself either!

Peeyush said...

I like Rilla and rilla..not sure which one I barrack for though!

C.K. said...

I'm so happy to see you back blogging! And the pics are gorgeous. I love Westies...even when they fight over shoes.

rilla said...

rilla: Hey there, Peeyush. There's a new usage for the word--'barrack'. I had to go look it up!

Rilla: While that numbskull of a would-be writer is busy looking up simple words, I'll tell you who to root for--ME--of course!

rilla said...

Good to see you back, too, CK!

Yes!I LOVE Westies. These two had an older brother who is sorely missed. And our neighbor here has the most darling little Westy girl who loves us as much as we love her--I hope!

Natalie said...

Wow--what a vacation! The photos (and food!) look scrumptious. :-)

rilla said...

Thanks, Natalie! I try not to look at those pictures too much...I just cleaned up my keyboard.
