Juliet was on the phone with Karen, Vogue Italia spread open on the bed before her as she tried to make her sister understand which dress she needed for her birthday party.

"It's red," she explained again. "It has netting. It's on page ... one-twenty-something. Italian Vogue. September. No, not the Calvin Klein, the Betsey Johnson."

A break. "No, no, red. I said red. ... what do you mean, it looks like last season? Mean. Maybe I'll just come home and do my own shopping. Fine. Bye."

After hanging up, she went to the closet and pulled out a suitcase to pack for a week back in Manhattan. She hadn't been terribly excited to spend her break building houses in the middle of an arctic wasteland to begin with, but with a birthday party to plan for it was time she simply couldn't waste. There were preparations to make.

[OOC: Door cracked, post open. Heading out, but I'll be back to pick up pings this evening.]

Miley walked in just in time to hear that last part of the phone conversation, but had the decency to wait until Juliet was off the phone before gushing, "Ohmygosh, I know exactly which dress you mean."

"It's awesome, right?" Juliet said, waving Miley in. "You should call my sister and explain. She says it looks like last season."

Karen was old.

"No way! It's super cute!" Miley objected. "And it would go perfectly with this Fendi clutch I just saw with bronze leather trim..."

"... oh my god, I have to go to Fendi while I'm home," Juliet decided. "An investment purse is such a good purchase."

"Definitely," Miley agreed emphatically. "Or I could loan you something, if it's for an event that's, like, super-soon? I just got a ton of stuff in LA last month that I haven't even used yet."

Juliet shook her head. "Thanks, but I'm going home for the week. I'll have tons of time."

She smiled, setting the suitcase aside. "How have you been?"

"Pretty good," Miley said, coming inside and taking the liberty of flopping down on Juliet's bed. "So jealous you're going home for the whole week. I don't get to leave till Tuesday afternoon." She sighed like this was the hardest thing a person could have to live with. "Portals."

"Ugh," Juliet agreed, sympathetically. "So you'll be here all by yourself?"

Said as if that was even worse.

"I guess," Miley said, sighing wearily. "There are probably some people who aren't going, though, right?"

God, she hoped so.

"I don't know?" Juliet admitted, frowning. "I mean, there should be,right? They can't make us go to Canada if we don't want to."

"Hopefully," Miley agreed. "'Cause, you know, building houses? I am so in support of the people who do that, but my charity things are more... helping get puppies adopted."

"Helping the less fortunate is important," Juliet said, piously, then sighed. "I just don't do manual labor. We could put together an awesome benefit without going to Newfoundland."

From: [identity profile]
"Yes! Exactly!" Finally, someone who wasn't jumping all over herself to paint fences. "I mean, hello, the point of benefits is to make charity fun instead of... icky."

And Canadian.

"Right. Plus, it's just going to be so boring," Juliet complained. "What will they do when they aren't, you know, hammering things? Chasing moose for a week is so not a vacation."

"Seriously," Miley agreed. "Or, like, having your bus break down and playing charades with your brother for six hours outside of Niagara Falls. Lame."

...that was maybe specific to just her.

"Sounds it," Juliet said, wrinkling her nose. "And you were on a bus, so it would have sucked to start with."

From: [identity profile]
"I know, right?!"

Buses sucked.

"So you're heading home to New York for the week? That sounds cool."

"It should be," Juliet burbled. "We can get our birthday shopping done, and I'll get to see my friend Natalie, and I haven't been home in forever. I miss it so bad."

"I know what you mean," agreed Miley, who, having been home a month ago, had absolutely nothing to stand on there. "Birthday shopping, that sounds cool! Are you having the party on the island, or back home?"

"I just assumed here," Juliet said thoughtfully. "It's homecoming week and everything."

Alarmed, she added, "Would Hannah come if it was on the island?"

"Oh, sure," Miley said, waving a hand. "She owes me big time. I saved her life surfing last summer, so." Believe it or not, she'd actually had a reason to use that lie before. "Shouldn't be a problem!"

"You saved her life surfing?" Juliet zeroed in on that. "Oh, wow. I had no idea you surfed that much. What happened?"

In another girl's mouth, it might have sounded skeptical, but Juliet was not that cynical.

It really said a lot about Miley's crack canon the level of intellect among people back home that she'd never been asked that before.

"Oh, you know," she said, shifting just the tiniest bit awkwardly. "Big fish, giant scary wave... I took care of it."

So convincing. Really.

From: [identity profile]
... yeah, when your canon is getting outsmarted by Juliet Darling, there are issues.

"I would have been so scared," she said. "The fish didn't bite you or wreck your board or anything?"

"Nope! They seemed... pretty friendly," Miley lied. "You know, like meta for? Rainbow Fish. Or Nemo."

Stop, Miley. Please stop.

Date: 2011-10-10 02:42 am (UTC)

"Like the sea turtles in Nemo?" Juliet asked hopefully (if irrelevantly). "They're surfer guys, right? I love that movie so much."

"Such a good movie," Miley agreed vigorously, glad to be off the topic of her fictional surfing adventures. "My BFF Lilly and I were Dory and whatshisname for Halloween one time. Ooh, I totally need to get started on a costume for this year..."

Attention spans. She had one. Sometimes.

Juliet sighed dramatically. "I haven't even thought about Halloween yet," she fussed. "Maybe I'll be Cleopatra this year. Somebody dangerous."

She hadn't forgotten about the fictional surfing adventures; it was more a side road.

Date: 2011-10-10 02:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Oooh, you'd be an awesome Cleopatra! And I can totally hook you up with my wi-- I mean, a wig place in LA that can make the whole... dark hair thing. They're really good."

Okay, that was a little weird even for somebody as privileged as Juliet. Wigs weren't exactly something you bought everyday. She gave Miley a confused look before answering.

"Wow, great," she said. "I was just going to order one online or something. I guess you must go to a lot of costume parties."
