A Word from Plumcake

Darlings, I’ve had just the teensiest personal crisis involving a very small (totally accidental) fire. Everyone and thing is okay –although I do have smoke in my lungs and I haven’t unclenched a muscle in days– but I’m taking the next day or so off to gather myself. Rest assured when I return we will have a special Hotness session featuring firefighters and dish will be spilled.

Gin and Tonics,

    Ack! I’m so glad you’re okay! A house fire is one of my absolute worst nightmares.

    I hope you are tastefully draped on a fainting couch with virile firefighters fanning you and plying you with martinis and truffles. Be well!

    O! Dear, Plumcake. Breathe & unclench. We’ll wait for you right here. *hugs & high-fives*

    As one of your loyal readers who actually happens to work “in” lungs, I wish you a speedy recovery! If you have any concerns about the smoke inhalation, you should call 1-800-LUNG-USA to speak with a respiratory therapist. Unfortunately, our help line does not have the ability to send you hunky firefighters. :(

    Oh my! Glad there was no serious loss or injury. jen209 is right. Be sure to have your lungs attended to.

    Heavens! Take care, dearie!

    EEK!! DID YOU MANAGE TO SAVE THE SHOES?????? (I am of course thrilled you are ok.)

  12. Twistie December 9, 2009 at 12:50 am #

    Dearest Plummy, since others have taken care of sending gin and firefighters, I am sending virtual scones and tasteful slippers suitable for wearing whilst reclining on a chaise longue and being pampered by gin-fueled firefighters.

    poor Miss Plummy! Such an ordeal. Be good to yourself, dear.

  14. Jane December 9, 2009 at 1:46 am #

    You are just too hot for your own good, that’s all.

  15. ginag December 9, 2009 at 10:21 am #

    Glad you’re okay, Plummy!

  16. All Women Stalker December 9, 2009 at 10:31 am #

    Glad everything’s fine! Hope you recover quickly!

    This is a note of UNDYING LOVE FOR TWISTIE. Thank you, THANK YOU, for saying “chaise longue.” It is one of my biggest pet peeves when people refer to it as “lounge.”

    And also of course, more thoughts for Plummy!

  18. Twistie December 9, 2009 at 1:20 pm #

    teteatete, I don’t think The Manolo would allow someone who writes ‘chaise lounge’ to write for him. We have Standards around here.

    Plummy, I’m curious. If your muscles are still clenched, where exactly was the fire and how many firemen did it take to put it out? It usually takes me three or four.

    Oh dear! My roommate (before we were roommates) once accidentally had part of a detached garage burn a bit while it was under her care. Through the gossip grapevine, she has become known as that girl who burnt down that house. She’s come to embrace it by now, I think.

    What trauma – *tea and biscuits*

  22. chachaheels December 10, 2009 at 8:11 am #

    So glad you came out of that largely unhurt! Hope you’re well again very soon, we miss you!

  23. MJ December 11, 2009 at 1:15 am #

    Yay for firemen and their big hoses!
