Who is Vendela? And why is she venting?
Firstly, I am not the tall, svelte Swedish actress/model who hawks iced tea, but rather a petite and sadly, perenially shrinking woman living on Los Angeles’s westwide. I am a woman who has enjoyed many incarnatioms: foremost a writer and editor, I am a practiced astrologer, schmata salesperson, media maven, jewelry aficionado, cross country traipser, foodie and never-ending student of life. And there is so much more…
The last year I’ve had a lot of time on my hands. The time was spent productively consciously and unconsciously ruminating on the many aspects of my life that have both worked and have not — and how I could make them better. This is where the venting comes in. A woman of many words, I have always felt that my path and my job was to use my skill with words to make life better, but not just for me.
Hence I will vent — on real health care in the trenches, and the idiots on parade in that field; on the lousy drivers that seem to congregate in LA (god, there are SOOOO many of you!); on my love of language and the books I love; on bad business management and great ideas; on family, food and the freaks and other oddities I continue to encounter through life. And whatever else strikes my fancy.
Enjoy the ride — I know I will.
