Yesterday while walking through the Village I passed by a woman who was ordinarily, even conservatively dressed, except that she was wearing a yellow boa. I was on my way to meet a friend for dinner, so I mentioned this to her. After I described the woman more thoroughly she said, "Maybe it was Laurel Touby." Never heard of her. When I got home I googled her & indeed it was she.

Saturday I went down to Red Hook Park to try out the Latin American food from the vendors who set up every weekend. I got a $5 pork quesadilla -- transcendently beautifully delicious. Also a jamaica -- a tea made from hibiscus. (I don't have a camera, but you can see pictures here.) Then I watched some soccer. It was a crappy day -- grey and drizzly -- but I enjoyed the walk there and back anyway.

Did you know who Laurel Touby was before this encounter? I didn't. Are people who run web sites becoming famous these days?

Nope. Had no idea. But my friend is a magazine editor and has been using mediabistro for years, so she knew. Touby must enjoy a kind of media-fame, and the fact that she runs a site that helps people find work can't hurt.

I should add a link to a page that explains who she is, & maybe explicitly cop to my own ignorance.

It looks to me as if she really is famous, and that I (and maybe you, I wouldn't presume) am not plugged in to the right outlets. "Laurel Touby" gets 309,000 hits on Google. I saw a cartoon about her boa. There's this whole other world out there that seems to have something to do with Gawker, The New York Observer, etc., where Laurel Touby is a household name.

The undertone in most of the articles about her is that she's a bitch. I especially like the indirection of the Times article on her wedding:

She seems to have a certain amount of fame in New York; I don't know about elsewhere. Also, I think her fame is a kind of media-fame. She's big in media, and the media, understandably, over-report their own. I tried to come up with a similar person, and I came up with Ana Marie Cox. She gets 332,000 ghits.

I got the sense that she was kind of a bitch too, but I didn't think the Times article (which -- confession -- I had read before you pointed it out) was indirect. But I don't know the general feel of those wedding pieces.

Excuse me while I go figure out who Ana Marie Cox is....
