One of my favourite JAKs!!
on 26 October 2002
Desdemona Wainwright was born in a theatrical family, the only member that is NOT in any way blessed with acting talent. So she turns her attention to catering. She is quite successful, which is a blessing to her theatrical family, because they always have a job between roles.
Her current catering assignment was for the wedding of Sam Stark. Only, the bride has decamped, leaving Sam at the alter and Desdemona with two expensive ice swans that were melting, fifty pounds of tortellini salad, two hundred miniature asparagus tarts, and three platter of goatshead cheese, and she was going to get her bill collected no matter what.
What she ends up collection is Sam. At first, she feels sorry for the man, after all his fiancÃ© dumped in just before the big fancy wedding, so she takes him to the caters to feed him. She think he is much too calm about being dumped, afraid he is in shock. He explains the marriage was viewed as a business deal. His fiancÃ© was beautiful, a good hostess, and 'so perfect, so reasonable'. As Sam sees it, he needed a woman who could play hostess for his huge business dinners. When he considers matters, he sees Desdemona as the solution. She is a cater, she can plan huge receptions with an ease. So he hires her, and naturally romance follows.
Desdemona thinks Sam is too alone in the world, so she involves him with her fruitcake, thespian family...to teach Sam to feel with his heart, instead of think with his computer brain. She views Sam as a medieval Knight physically, but too analytical. But she is blessed with his Knight side when someone began to menace her and threaten to kill her. Sam is a man I would marry in a heartbeat!!
This is JAK at peak form!! She does not get any better!!!!!!!!!!!!!
