Mystery Blogger, Gayle

Hi there

Haven’t written much lately. I have decided to leave the entertainment industry.

It’s been an interesting ride, thats for sure. Worked for some amazing (and not so amazing) people. For those who have followed my blog posting the last few years, you know that I’ve been working for a fellow who is known around the world for his acting skills. And I posted from time to time all the craziness at his home where I work. Million dollar homes and there is always something to fix. Last week it was a window that was leaking when it rained. In the past, I’ve written about the “pond” project which in hindsight was pretty funny, but I  wasn’t laughing at the time. My little apartment doesn’t have these problems!!

Anyway just wanted to say goodbye. Hope you keep reading here. Shelley is a good egg and has great advice for people. I will certainly use all the things she’s talked about over the years in my new job.

Will miss the Hollywood parties, swag bags and attention that comes with the position I’ve had but I won’t miss the temper tantrums, late night calls and…well, you get the picture.

Mystery Blog by Gayle

Mystery Bloggers

If you are new to my site: mystery

The Mystery Bloggers are all celebrity personal assistants who prefer to not use their real names or to identify who they work for. That said, they do tell stories about what it’s like to be them — this is their forum — a safe place for them to vent, laugh, cry, whatever.

Scroll down and you will find headings like this:  MYSTERY BLOGGER for all the past blogs they have done. Some day I would love to take all their stories and put them in Book #2! They also have their own pull down tab (up top of the site).

Your comments are always welcome on any of the blog entries.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy New Year everyone.

Not much to report EXCEPT that if you read my last entry from a few weeks ago I had to handle a flood in my boss’s house. Well, just before Christmas we had some heavy rain and then snow (didn’t everyone?!!) and of course WE get a leak in the roof.

It’s just so weird that anything having to do with water and my guy do not mix. Like oil and vinegar. Same principle. But we got it all patched up naturally.

Hope you had a good holiday. Here’s to a fun (and less water filled) 2010!

What the heck is the problem with my boss and WATER?  Insert a picture of a frustrated assistant here Shelley! ———————-> mad

If you’ve read my past blogs (If not, why aren’t you reading them! They are funny and tragic at the same time.) If you’ve read my past blogs, you know that the boss has challenges with pools, ponds and technology.

And the universe conspires against me the second he leaves town, I swear to God!  So, of course he left town yesterday and today I got a panicked call from a neighbor who is watching over his summer home – big leak in the kitchen! Flood in the dining room!

Why am I surprised? Ha. Oh well, damage to the kitchen cabinets not too bad actually.

Just another day in the life of….

Hi there. Did you miss me? Well I always try to wait to blog until I have something interesting to say, unlike Shelley (just kidding).

Here is my thing. I seem to always have to handle a disaster (or two) the minute my boss leaves town. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Karma? Maybe.

So, the boss is on vacation in the South of France for two weeks. YAY! Continue Reading…

Mystery Blogger Gayle: Algae

Hello there.

Some of you may remember that a year ago (hard to believe it was that long ago) my boss went out of the country and left me with a nightmare project to handle because he didn’t handle it before he left. This was the pond project. I wrote extensively about my frustrations with the entire process (some of it was actually kind of funny) over the past year.

The pond was finally built.

it developed string algae.

A LOT of string algae. Continue Reading…

Mystery Blogger Gayle: Tivo

Hi everyone.

I have been traveling so I apologize for not writing a blog in a while. Luckily Shelley still loves me no matter what!

I wanted to write a tribute to all the people who passed the last few weeks but my heart just isn’t in it.

Instead, a short blog about the boss man. For those who followed my exploits that began last summer with the pond blogs….all appears to be well with the pond as of today. Anything could happen tomorrow though! Continue Reading…
