I spent a lot of my free time trying to come up with names for celebrity super-fandoms. Like, Beyonce has the BeyHive (and also the Beygency), and people who really love Barry Manilow are, of course, called Fanilows.  This train of thought originally came into being because I recognize that I am in whatever the BeyHive for Serena Williams is, and I feel that we need a kicky name, too. (Like, do you have some criticism of Serena? I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT.) My friend Catherine and I have worked on this for months now. The Serenagency? The Serenassociation? The Serenauthority? It’s harder than you think! Anyway, the reason I bring this up now is because whilst looking at this photo, it occurred to me that I am ALSO in whatever the Serenauthority (still not quite right!) is for Angela Bassett, and now I need to come up with yet another clever moniker. I love her. I think she is amazing. I’m a card-carrying member of…the Fangelas? Maybe! Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, I promise I won’t mention that this outfit might be jammies at our next meeting.
