You are looking at Bossy’s friend Veronique, who is the third participator in Bossy’s latest stunt, which is to drive around Los Angeles in a Ford Focus while Guest Riders direct Bossy to things that are typically L.A.!
Bossy will be honest with you. She’s actually been home from Los Angeles for two days already, which feels like two years — and she’s due at a blog conference in New Orleans tomorrow, which feels like two hours.
So please be patient with Bossy as she tries to remember the details of this fun Guest Rider day, which began with Robert Culp’s daughter and ended in a fish fry hold the fry.
So there was Bossy’s friend Veronique, but you can call her The World’s Cutest Person for short. The recipe for Veronique is as follows: Add equal parts Sissy Spacek and Joni Mitchell and stir:
Veronique lives in a place that shall remain nameless for security purposes, but her blog has the rather coincidental moniker Here In Malibu.
And so Bossy and her friend Veronique began their time together in the community that rhymes with Halibu by taking a celebrity house tour! First they visited Bob Dylan‘s house!
And then Bossy and her friend Veronique visited Barbra Streisand!
And then Bossy and Veronique stopped by Don Henley’s!
Exhausted by her celebrity consorting, Bossy pulled her Focus to the side of the road in a completely legal to the side of the road way dear Ford, so Bossy and Veronique could enjoy a nature hike:
And then a funny thing happened on the nature hike! The path kept pathing all the way to the edge of the nature:
And then, this was really odd: at the end of the nature, there was water!
And in this water, there were dolphins!
Don’t get Bossy wrong, the dolphins didn’t appear all at once!
Nope, the dolphins didn’t appear all at once at all. The dolphins sort of appeared none at once!
But luckily Bossy’s friend Veronique has a sixth sense, and she was all, “I can feel there’s a dolphin pod close by.”
And Bossy’s friend Veronique was right! Because what should suddenly appear but a pod of dolphins!
Bossy kids! That’s not the best photo Bossy has of the pod of dolphins! Bossy also has the following dolphin photo:
This was just about when Bossy and her friend Veronique decided if they couldn’t swim with the dolphins, they could at least eat them for dinner!
And so there sat Bossy and her friend Veronique at the outdoor picnic table in their fish fry restaurant hold the fry, where they spoke of their various crossroads: Bossy with her Undivorce, and Veronique poised to move out of the house she adores.
And when their dinner was complete and every condiment had been absorbed by every carbohydrate, Bossy climbed back into her Ford Focus, where Veronique pointed out that the Ford’s navigational system poses the truly existential questions:
Stay tuned for the next installment of Bossy’s Guest Riders when Bossy drives to Venice Italy, hold the Italy!

Maybe the Ford Focus holds the answer to the undivorce? Just push the “Where Am I Going?” button.
Cactus Petunia saysApril 13, 2011 at 10:10 pm
Press the button, Bossy! Can’t wait to see your next destination!
KathyB saysApril 13, 2011 at 10:18 pm
OOH OOH, Bossy is going to New Orleans! I’m excited. Goodbye Cali. Loved the Ford Focus husband tour of LA with selected wonderful guides like Sissy/Joni.
feefifoto saysApril 13, 2011 at 10:23 pm
I’m not a math maven or anything, but I think it’s impossible to divide New Orleans by Los Angeles (and exactly why is Spellcheck sneering at Los Angeles?). Am I correct here?
CS saysApril 14, 2011 at 1:48 am
Oh, Bossy! I am so enjoying your travels. . stuck at home for my kids’ spring break. Can’t wait for what’s next.

Great trip, great pics, but is “The Joint” button only in California cars? Does it dispense?
km saysApril 14, 2011 at 9:09 am
Pushing The Joint will bring The Heat and then Bossy will be in trouble with Ford
Meg saysApril 14, 2011 at 12:58 pm
Bossy~you are Malibu Barbie!!! xxoo
Gretchen saysApril 14, 2011 at 10:52 pm
Nice pictures and great photo-shopping. I have never seen the Pacific off of Mailbu look blue before! Did you happen to feel how cold that water is? So explain to me how Gidget could go surfing in that!
Joe saysApril 15, 2011 at 2:03 pm
I’m going to go out on a limb right now and say that “Bossy” could be one of the most irritating bloggers on the internet. This blog is the work of a pathetic lady who’s previous life as a stay-at-home mom wasn’t doing it for her so she decides to fill in others about the pointless, stupid details of her new, “glamorous” lifestyle. Please do not fall victim to her attempt to feed her gigantic ego (although this shouldn’t be too difficult since her posts have absolutely no point to them. Like absolutely no point unless you enjoy listening to somebody who constantly refers to herself in the 3rd person explain what it’s like to try to validate her existence.) Bossy, please do me a favor and try and write something interesting or thought-provoking before posting. Thank you!
Olivia saysApril 15, 2011 at 5:49 pm
Whoa………………….Olivia thinks that “Joe” needs to push a Joint button.
Rock on, Bossy – and your math makes perfect sense to me.
Wacky Mommy saysApril 15, 2011 at 10:46 pm
“so believe you, her, you…” and THAT is the reason i keep coming back here. good writin’! have fun in N.O.
Jennifer saysApril 16, 2011 at 9:04 am
Well I like your posts, Bossy. And I could feel the dolphin pod, too. All the way from Tennessee.
Suzi saysApril 16, 2011 at 10:48 am
Poor Joe. Poor, sad Joe.
MIME saysApril 16, 2011 at 10:54 pm
Joe, you don’t get around much if you find Bossy one of the most irritating bloggers on the internet. Am guessing you wrote the book on pathetic and pointless.
Joe saysApril 16, 2011 at 11:56 pm
Maybe I came in a little too aggressive the first time, but can anybody inform me about the point of this blog? I find these posts to be mind-numbingly boring
Olivia saysApril 17, 2011 at 11:17 am
Which begs the question then: Why do you bother reading this blog, Joe?
Charlie saysApril 17, 2011 at 2:24 pm
Great post! First time I heard the term “pod of dolphins” was from a video game called Ecco (yes, there are/were video games about dolphins). Which just prompted me to invent silly names for animal groups, like a “dollop of turtles” and a “cacophony of chickens.”
Beta Dad saysApril 17, 2011 at 5:20 pm
Bossy is funny and cool to run around with in New Orleans!
Mary saysApril 17, 2011 at 5:49 pm
This stuff is boring, self-indulgent crap supported by followers who apparently have a lot of time on their hands. BOOORING!
foolery saysApril 18, 2011 at 12:55 pm
Joe, meet Mary. Mary, meet Joe. I hope you collaborate on a Very Important Blog that takes these boring old Internutz by storm. Best of luck to you both . . . ‘bye.
