Who’s who?

In Who's Who? on 25/03/2009 at 11:10

Oh my, guess who we saw entering his house today (No.37 Lauriergracht) – Droogstoopel! Looking very dapper in a smart suit, but not too flashy, he would NOT want to attract too much attention. Curiously, he seemed to have a manuscript tucked under his arm…wonder what THAT could be about? Droogstoopel writing a book? What could that be about? The Coffee Exchange maybe? Or a torrid love affair?

Our on scene reporter, Jacobus Van Janssen was able to procure (we cannot mention how) an excerpt from the manuscript and it seems that it is an autobiography!

“I am forty-three years old, I’ve been on the ‘Change for twenty years, so I can come forward if anyone’s called for who has experience”.

Who knew Droogstoopel was forty-three, looking great for forty-three, what do you think his secret is, readers?

Sources close to the star say that Droogstoopel is feeling a little frustrated at not being name on his company, Last & Co. Coffee Brokers. It seems even though the Meyers are gone now no one has thought to add his name to the title of the company. Wonder if he’ll kick up a fuss?

Ideas – Kepsibel

In Character Development, Gossip, Ideas for this blog on 25/03/2009 at 10:48

1. The weather

2. The Environmental commentator : Talk bout the environments that are involved with Max Havelaar, Java vs. Amsterdam

3. The update on the coffee exchange, kind of like the stock market but the coffee exchange, showing the ups and downs of the coffee business according to the book, adding in reasons for the ups and downs that relates back to the book

4. Character profiles as they are introduced to us, update them as their stories unfold. This is my favorite idea so far and I think I can go the furthest with it, it would include quotes from them, who they are, what they look like what they do, what they wear, relationships with the other characters.. kind of like following your favorite celebrities!
