Norma Desmond's News Year's Eve Celebration: Chapter 1 in "The Norma Desmond Chronicles"

Norma has been sprung from the "place" where she had to go for a little meds-adjustment just in time for New Year's Eve! No Joe Gillis rejections this year - just Norma, Max and her true friends. Look how Hollywood has rallied around her!

This is a big night for Norma. She has waxed the tile floor (the on one which Valentino tangoed), has made sure there is plenty of liquor, and left the rest of the details to Max.

First, a silent screen queen must make a regal entrance to greet her guests:

Norma was overcome with emotion!

Max was smiling*!
* but threw out the guns and razor blades just to be on the safe side.

 So many stars came to celebrate her "return" and toast her to a happy new year!

First, her beloved CB DeMille made a speech to welcome her home.
After which, all of Hollywood drank a toast or two in her honor.
Louise happily played bartender
Lifting a glass or five to Norma were:
Stan, Ollie & Charley

Merle Oberon
Bette & Miriam
Gable & Lombard
Bing, Grace & Frank


Cary & Ingrid
Joan (Norma's new BFF)

The "other" Norma & Conrad
Designated Drivers Charlie & Edna
Hedda took notes and reported that a wonderful time was had by all
It was a triumphant evening for Norma. All agreed that she "seemed fine" and that she was a brilliant hostess.

She was back and the new year beckoned with the promise of all good things for Norma Desmond. With that pesky "incident" behind her, the sky was the limit!


To be continued.......

The Norma Desmond Chronicles will continue periodically in 2011. Check back often to see how Norma is adjusting to her new life. One thing about Norma... she is never boring!

FlickChick's Holiday Party

'Twas 2 weeks before Christmas in the Land of La La;
When FlickChick decided to host a Holiday gala.
The guests were chosen with the greatest of care;
From Paramount, Warners, Metro Goldwyn & Mayer 

FlickChick's parties were renowned in the town;
Not one shining star would dare turn her down.
The gala theme was "decorate my home and my tree."
Hey, FlickChick was not above getting good things for free!

And so they came, ready to work and to play
And hoping that tons of publicity would come their way!

First, Mary Pickford helped with the outdoor decor;

Next, Bob Mitchum and Bette bought out the store!

Joan Crawford's gift was meant in good will;

She did not realize that smoking can kill!

The tree trimmers came in a furious chorus;
Hayley and Barbara and Ginger and Boris

Marion, Carole and Jane put on quite a show;
But all eyes were glued to Miss Marilyn Monroe!
The 'Toons played with Shirley and little Natalie Wood;

'Till Ms. Crawford, in her Christmas clothes,
 scared them into being good.

Musical fun was added by Elvis, Doris and Bing;

Until the chimes of midnight finally did ring.

FlickChick, though sleepy, surveyed her home with delight;

Then promptly asked them to leave and wished them all a Good Night!

Happy & Healthy Holiday Season to all you wonderful people out there in the dark!
Give generously to those in need.
