A small world

That it is, posts like this are proof to me. Here is a Stephanie Pearl McPhee (The Yarn Harlot) blog post from February. I was quite busy then and just caught up blog reading her really funny posts and stumbled on this post.

A picture of James accompanied by this text.... "James. He works at the desk at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, he's a handsome devil, made only more attractive by his charm, his ability to get Tina into the hotel room she very adeptly locked herself out of in the wee hours, his willingness to discuss the politics of nuclear energy with Eugene, and his knitting. He's got friends in Toronto, and this one's for them. (He knit on my sweater a bit.) "

Two years ago I taught at the Puget Sound Bead Festival, stayed at this very hotel and was charmed by the very same James. It is a testament to his great customer service and charm that both myself, an over 50 year old women (note James youth) and the 30 year old gay man at my dinner table, were both quite sure that James was only smitten with ourselves and no one else. I of course know the fantasy of this, but still, he was definitely a charmer.

And I see he continues to charm....
