Society Pages

This is a very late New Year's Resolution.

I am determined to get myself into the society pages by the end of the year. I'm going to have to make some serious efforts at getting out to some exhibition openings and suchlike, but I WILL DO IT.

I don't care where the society pages are. Anything will do, and I suspect I have a pretty good chance of getting into the Petone Beach Kindergarten newsletter (if I write and publish it).

I'll need a gimmick so that the photographer notices me. Perhaps I'll become a crazy hat lady, or start dressing like Madonna (in her Confessions guise), or I'll carry around a monkey.

Anyone got a monkey?

Well hey, I saw you on MySpace - does that count?

The way the DomPost's "people page" is going, your best bet is to move to Auckland. Today's was the first in ages that didn't have more Auckland events than Wellington.

And if you want to be in The Wellingtonian's City Style supplement, then you should try selling cars, building crappy apartments, or shagging John McGrath.

Make it a New Financial Year's resolution or a Maori New Year's resolution then you're not late at all.

Ahah! I know someone who was on the COVER of the Wellingtonian's City Style supplement!

We can assume she was fairly spectacular then?

I suspect you can't mean the same John McGrath that I know....

Martha said...

It must be the same John McGrath - we are a small city. I'm not above becoming a car salesperson.

As soon as the Dom gets rid of that bloody Bridget Saunders (wtf?) I'll be in with a grin.

I think I'll try for this year, otherwise, with my masterful skills of procrastination, I'll be here in 12 months still trying.

I've been in the society pages a couple'o times since I moved back to Wellington, but I was shitty with the caption in the Dom Post about how I was holding my head up, because why-the-fuck wouldn't I, and being in the Capital Times doesn't really count since the photographer was my friend's friend at the time.

i think you should attend craftwerk - which is bitchcraftrevamped - craftwerk.co.nz - we plan to have loads of glittry people there, and you could be our famous in petone person

Martha said...

I'd love to, and not just for fames sake, but for the sake of lovely craft.

Of course I did have this moment in the sun last year.

your monkey must wear clothes.

Kate said...

OMG - That's my goal too!

Of course all events I attend will have to include alcohol. It's the only way I function.
