March 25

Last night I met my friend Yvette at Duke's Restaurant at Malibu. The reception area is full of Hawaiian kitsch like this doll.

My mother used to collect dolls in national dress; she didn't have a Hawaiian one, though she had little plastic Fijian dolls. As an adult, I started making dolls as gifts for Mum, which eventually led me to joining a local doll club, which is where I met Yvette.

The last doll I made was Bruce. I lost interest in dollmaking after that ... but Yvette and I have stayed good friends. Thanks for a nice evening Evie. I'm sorry I was a bit grumpy at the start, and I'm also sorry I didn't pick up your valet tab. What was I thinking??
