Apparently there is an event downtown as John and Lena are headed there to promote the store.
Why can't I get out and promote?
Crystal is drinking heavily at night, I see out of the corner of my eye that one of her shoes has fallen off.
At least I'm the more responsible, older, one.
People keep walking by the window, why do they stare at me so much.
I wish I could see what was going on behind me.
And why do they keep closing the drapes in front of me?
It's been quiet here in the store,
Lena and John returned to the store early last night.
I watched them carry bags in from the street.
Wonder what this week will bring them.
Well it's 9am, and like clockwork John is here.early.
A flurry of emotions and activity is building, like the world is going to end, the store is in disarray. A neon rainbow has exploded in the store. There are bright colors everywhere.
Jeanette has stopped by to help.
Lena's shredding a tutu. Okay actually she is trimming it.
When will they go home? I think I heard someone say it's 2am.
John's been helping to finalize merchandise. It's weirdly satisfying to not be alone.
The old white lady is in pieces on the furniture and Alice is hanging off her stand.
I also have a name,
Clarice. apparently it's a wealthy name, but John joked I have the spirt of Jodie Foster's character in Silence of the Lambs.
What have I been missing out on?
The Grapevine rumors are true.
Lena is running in Connecticut on Sunday morning.
Every night the store closes and paperwork is done. Except today, they closed the store, sheltering me from the world.
Lena is in design mode, gearing up to take things out to Connecticut.
I'm going to need a map of the world if this keeps happening.
Grapevine rumors amongst the Mannequins and dress forms is that Lena is a marathon runner. I will need to see if this is true.
John and Lena seem to get along well.
Crystal is still perched on the piano and I keep staring out this window.
Every morning they open the window for the world to see me, and every night they close it.
WHAT ARE THEY HIDING ME FROM SEEING?
Or are they sheltering me?
Haven't written in a while, 50042 is perched on a black square thing next to the piano.
John commented that she looks like a party girl. martini glass in hand, hat askew, sort of short skirt, and the black ostrich feather cape thing that the old lady was wearing,
He called her Crystal.
A flurry of activity is happening, to much to tell you. Give me time and I will!
Don't know how they did it but Lena and John have opened the store,
['m on display as is 50042. They have me dressed in a silky print blouse, real fur vest and a brown leather skirt.
I can see the food on the trays, the mirrored queen bed looks beautiful in the store, 50042 is perched above the bed, Black hat, ostrich feather cape and evening heels.
That quiet girl is back in the store, her art pieces are gorgeous.
People keep popping in and out of the store wondering what's going on....
I have the same questions.
Not going to say I've been hung out to dry, but I just witnessed two days of frantic organization.
Lena has a ton of merchandise. She spoke several times of finding more clothing.
Will the sea of fabric never end?
There has been so much happening that I can't say what's going on, or how this will be a store. but I see the a floor space.
John has been helping Lena as a personal assistant organizing her paperwork in preparation of the store's soft opening.
Will write more later.
