The Truth About Amy

I’m one of those quirky New Yorkers who has no friends. I’ve had them from time to time, but at the moment I get death threats hurled through my window for not returning an article of clothing, but then along came Amy.

Amy is beautiful, bright, funny and extremely generous. Who knew?  She encouraged me to start blogging, no easy feat since the mere thought sent me to The King Cole Bar in a gypsy cab. I’m so private that I make Greta Garbo look like Lady Ga Ga, so this is a helluva big deal for me.

One day Amy cheerfully suggested, “Rather than turning the gas on Susannah, why not blog your blues away?” Hmm, I thought, lowering the oven to 350 baking a chicken instead.

She did all the work, encouraged me when the site rejected my AmEx card for reasons still unknown. I’m still convinced it was a guy I must have blown off…but what I realized after she had to be hospitalized for extreme cyber exhaustion, I do have a friend.

So thanks Amy.


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    athingirl is three years old today…she doesn’t look a day over two, don’t you agree? Approaching 1000 posts, who knew I’d take to blogging like a fish to water. Amy, that’s who.


  3. Thank you Amy for encouraging Susannah, who in turn, encourages me.

    I have a similar friend who encouraged me and sat next to me while I tried to set up my blog. All it takes is for one person to believe in you and then whammo, you can do it! Congratulations! Three years is a long time!
