Molly Parkin: A Goddess writes ....

As some of you may know, Madame Arcati sprang first from the imagination of Noel Coward for Blithe Spirit and then took possession of the person of Margaret Rutherford whose movie and stage rendition has never been bettered (same with Miss Marple, by the way). Now, style icon, writer, poet and GODDESS, Molly Parkin, has written to Arcati - savour her words, delight in her precedence, and damn well behave yourselves before you visit her excellent site wwww.mollyparkin.co.uk ...

DEAR MADAME ARCATI

MARGARET RUTHERFORD WAS MY FIRST REAL-LIFE SARTORIAL ROLE-MODEL. I QUEUED AT A STAGE DOOR, BEGGING HER AUTOGRAPH, WHEN I WAS 12. SHE WAS SWATHED IN AUTUMNAL SHADES OF SOFT CASHMERE, WITH A PAVEMENT-LENGTH CLOAK OF CLARET TRIPLE-DEPTH VELVET AND ROPES OF AMBER GRAZING HER KNEES. ALAS WE NEVER MET AGAIN, THOUGH I GENUFLECTED BEFORE BLITHE SPIRIT MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS.

NOW HERE YOU ARE.

MOLLY PARKIN, ENCHANTED!

Why does that woman feel obliged to SHOUT ?! We're not deaf !

More importantly: who is she? Would someone please inform this poor, ignorant American?

Arcati said...

Dear Liza, allow me to advance your education in one simple stroke. LOOK HER UP ON FUCKING GOOGLE.
OK?

Well, Madame Arcati told you : she's a GODDESS. And no, we are not deaf, but SHE probably is. She's a deaf old goddess... The only advantage of it is that you don't need to pray to her, she won't hear you.

Welcome to this retirement home for professional gossips! ;-)

Oh, for Chrissake! Arcati's cultural references, her style, her friends, most of the people she talks about... Please, don't tell me you didn't notice almost everything out here is in the over-sixty age group!

Arcati said...

Would the ageist fanny move on please and mind the Stannah on your way out, you unreconstructed, tragic moron.

My God, Arcati, that bloody Anonymous is dynamiting your crystal ball !

Wow, Arcati! With an attitude like that it's amazing you don't have more people on here just clamouring for your abuse. Nice host style, bitch.

Don't worry, pal, she doesn't get away with it like that. Can't you see most of the regulars out here are ten times worse than the host? :-)
