Caffè  Florian: Intruder Alert

 

by

Jennifer Susannah Devore

 

Little Miss JennyPop, as most people know,

Longed to revisit 18thC. Venice; she was always ready to go.

 

So to Caffè Florian, the oldest in the world - 1720 - she did flock.

For this Italian adventure, naturally, she packed her most Verdi-inspired frock.

 

On a rainy, Veneto night, into Florian they fled,

Sipping famed Florian brandy and espresso, JennyPop and her belov-ed.

 

Taking in a glistening, empty, St. Mark's Square,

The two shared an Enlightenment moment, looking quite the pair.

 

When down plopped beside them, a policeman and his wife,

An L.A. County sheriff and his clangorous lass, instantly spoke, ad nauseam, all about their life.

 

Like a boom in the shot, a fly in the wine,

They guffawed and gamboled too loudly, far from sublime.

 

We got two babies back in Big Bear! Do you know it?

I sure do love my babies ... the wife hesitated a bit.

 

Buuuuut? JennyPop prompted.

It sure is nice to get away sometimes, she admitted. Isn't it?

 

Leave me alone. Please exit my reveries.

This is my time, my moment, to experience the Seventeen-Twenties.

 

I don't really like people, JennyPop awkwardly blurted.

Fortunately, to her more affable half, the convo quickly reverted.

 

If one day you see JennyPop, lost in historical daydreams,

in a museum, cathedral or historic caffè,

Feel free to chat with her, quietly, then, please, go away.

When the postcard-perfect days in sunny San Diego gnaw on her Addams Family aura, JennyPop (aka author Jennifer Susannah Devore) seeks the cold, the grey and the drizzly. East of the Mississippi is usually a good bet. Did she get more than she bargained for with 2018's Beast from the East?! Single-digit days may have pushed her cold threshold, but the Siberian Beast filled her happy-goth heart with glacier-blue joy. Just for you, kittens, she slipped off her cashmere gloves and froze her twee fingertips, whenever was necessary, to snap so many fun and fab pix.

It also gave her the opportunity to sport Mom's cashmere overcoat (finally!), tromp through an icy castle, use her German, French and Italian languages (rarely an opportunity in San Diego) and practice some very bad Czech. (Stop laughing at how I pronounce Děkuju. Czech is a difficult language, far more so than Dutch!) Cold weather also means refuge in her fave bars, museums, cathedrals and shops ... plus a few new ones. Enjoy a few more PopSpecs from Venice, Paris, Vienna and Prague.

Yes, btw, Piglet made it all over Europe again ... and back this time! Scroll down my Insta feed for Piglet's Grand Viennese Adventure of September 2K17.)

Keep eye for future slideshows in Autumn 2K18 (Copenhagen and Malmo) and Spring 2K19 (Ireland and Northern Ireland).

Tchuss, Alles meinen Freunden!

(P.S. As always, give JennyPop slideshows a moment to load. So much goodness! Vielen Dank!)

 

Visiting Venice and Caffè Florian, oldest coffeehouse in the world? If you see JennyPop there, maybe sit elsewhere, or at least be silent.

via "Lisa's List" NPR Review: What a pleasant surprise Savannah of Williamsburg is. At first glance I thought a story about a squirrel who comes to
Colonial Virginia, dressed in pretty frocks and traveling with a steamer trunk and a violin would not be my cup of tea. But I’m game, so I started
reading.

via J. Carroll on Amazon: An interesting history lesson, much of it told in the third person, through the eyes of a little, English squirrel who made
her way to America and settled in Williamsburg during the early years of this nation. See previous writing by the same author, titled "Savannah of
Williamsburg".

Meet Miss JennyPop

Jennifer Susannah Devore

Jenny Pop is the acclaimed Author of the Savannah of Williamsburg series of books and The Darlings of Orange County. In addition, Jen is a prolific consumer of media and pop culture. Never leaving the house without her journal and fave Waterman pen, an old-fashioned, analog book (usually Hunter S. Thompson) and a fresh coat of lipstick, she is constantly on the hunt for fun, espresso, animation  and comics of any kind and always ready for an impromptu day at Disneyland.  JennyPop.net is a natural extension of  Jen's World; so, spend some time visiting. You'll have fun, she promises!

Meet The Darlings

The Darlings of Orange County

The sexy, cashmere beaches of southern California aren't always what they seem. The dirty little secret here is what it takes to survive. Everyone has a trick up their silk sleeve. Liz Lemon meets Parker Posey, Veronica Darling is smart enough to know what it takes and is willing to soil her soul to bring Hollywood to the California Riviera. The Darlings of Orange County is a salacious, hilarious, harrowing romp chock full of eco-terrorism, horse-racing scandals, weed deals and the obligatory lipstick-lesbian affair that inevitably leads to murder. It all climaxes in a white-knuckled, glitzy, celebrity-stacked Laguna Beach Film Premiere that spells success for Veronica Darling and trouble for her friends and family.

Read more to meet her best friends and accomplices: Ichabod Wolfgang and Dante Marcus Pritchen. Prepare to also meet pirates, a Venetian fox and an Irish gull, The Commodore!

Meet Miss Hannah

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

So, here's the low down, all you Joes and Janes ... I'm Hannah Hart, dead girl. Don't fret, it's actually a sweet dish being dead. Having perished in 1934 in a terrifically vicious accessories incident with actress Ida Lupino, I reside where I died: San Diego's gorgeous Hotel del Coronado. It ain't a bad gig at all, really! Great weather, swanky guests (not to mention a few fellow ghosties), amazing amenities, my own private turret overlooking the sea and all the java juice and giggle water I can handle; plus, these bartenders know how to make a Planter's Punch like nobody's business! See, I've been waiting for this Internet thing forever ... now, instead of slamming doors and moving lamps, I get to wag my tongue all I like at goodtobeageek.com

Abyssinia, kids!
