Princess Olga, Part III

Curious as always, your scribe decided to google Ms. Litvinenko to see what else he could learn. Turns out there's a website that is wobbly enough so that your scribe decided against providing a hot link to it - after all, we don't want to crash it!

And wobbly is what your scribe's knees became at the photo posted thereon:

One wonders how long before the Hollywood talent scouts start hanging around Greenwich High School when they discover this publicity shot. Geez, folks, we haven't had a real live home-grown movie star in this Town since Glen Close made it big in The Big Chill. Your scribe well remembers piling into various cars for the 1983 sneak preview screening and after-parties with which her friends in Town celebrated the momentous occasion. Woo-hoo!!

Glen is related, BTW, to Brooke Shields and Dina Merrill. Must be something in the genes.

Anyhow, it's been almost 25 years since then. Kudos, of course, to Olympians Dorothy Hamill and Sue Merz for keeping the flame alive, as it were. But it's now time for another local celebrity - a native one, not just the multitude of famous faces who move here after winning fame and fortune elsewhere (although they are - for the most part - welcome, too). And so your scribe hereby nominates Princess Olga for the role of Greenwich's next locally-bred celebrity. A product of Parkway Elementary, Western Middle, and of course Greenwich High, Olga is clearly Our Town at its best.

Must be something in the, genes.

So...those high heeled stiletto boots make you weak at the knees, do they?

I swear, I learn something new about you every day, Scribe!

Hey, AuthorBabe, I'm only human! :-)

Goodness knows why Olga needs those 6-inch heels - my guess is that she's already about 6 feet tall in her stocking feet. But they sure make a statement, don't they?

(Make sure Mini-Me doesn't see this pic, or she'll be clamoring for a pair, too!)
