I no longer recognize marriage. It’s a new thing I’m trying. Turns out it’s fun. Yesterday I called a woman’s spouse her boyfriend. She says, correcting me, “He’s my husband,” “Oh,” I say, “I no longer recognize marriage.” The impact is obvious. I tried it on a man who has been in a relationship for years, “How’s your longtime companion, Jill?” “She’s my wife!” “Yeah, well, my beliefs don’t...

i’ve become to cynical for even myself. it doesn’t feel good to have this much judgment and anger inside me. and that’s why its all projectile vomiting out of my mouth. i can’t control it because i just want it to leave my fucking system.

this picture was taken about fourteen years ago, when i was seven i’d guess. me entuhsiasts will recognize that it was taken at Poppop’s in UJ-er’s room. they will also know this is sometime before the camisole period. i’ve pointed out that even 14 years ago i was still surrounded by apple products, rocking leggings, wearing stripes, and futzing with things (rolled up...
i want to go somewhere with dim lights and hot soup. with scarves around pale necks, and where the white wine is chilled. somewhere with cozy chairs you could spend all evening in, and i want to spend all evening in them. where no one has other plans, something faster, better, more exciting to get it. just sit, talk, drink and watch the cold from inside. with flickering tea candles, and maybe a...
“To me, a lawyer is basically the person that knows the rules of the country. We’re all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there is a problem the lawyer is the only person who has read the inside of the top of the box.”-seinfeld.
one of my favorite books.
you may not know this about me, but i love, love children’s books. artfully done ones. when MyGuy and i go to Barnes and Noble i almost always make a beeline for the children’s books and grab a huge stack of new/never seen before children’s books—yes, sometimes, i do look at novels, biographies, and non-fiction a lot—but, seriously. children’s books, Maurice...

Three planets orbiting the star HR 8799 and one planet orbiting the star Fomalhaut are optically verified, making them the first extrasolar planets ( a planet beyond our solar system, i’m assuming we all have the same solar system.. i don’t pride myself to think someone orbiting HR8799 would be interested in MY blog, orbiting another star) whose existences have been confirmed via...
november is structured like this for me: Nov. 9, 1937: poppop’s birthday Nov. 19, 2006: papa hank passes away Nov. 29, 1925: papa hank’s birthday papa hank passed away two years ago today.. and i just remember it was one of those early morning calls that’s never good. i almost fell on the cement stairs when i ran down to Lili and Bee’s apartment. i crawled back into bed...
“I don’t know if any of you have signed up for Gwyneth Paltrow’s new lifestyle newsletters on her hideously named Web site, GOOP, but they are hilarious in ways that I do not think she intended them to be.

wwjzd: if you happen to be referring to the AA jean/leggings, i completely agree. i am such an advocate against “leggings as pants” but these are GENIUS. i didn’t know AA sold them.. i got mine at Necessary Objects on broadway for 13 dollars. its very close to AA, like down the street. so we can pretend.
i’m totally fascinated by couples that live together. probably because i’ve never lived with my SO. i don’t see myself signing any legal documents to solidify my commitment, but i do foresee lots of pre-moving in conversation about finances, etc. so with young(er) couples who live together, or where its serious but not entirely serious i am fascinated— how do they split up...

what i wore, 7. (and hair!)
this outfit is cuter in person, in my opinion. this picture is not all that flattering, but that’s just how confident i am.. i’m posting it for the outfit despite the fact that my thighs kind of want to take over the island in this shot, also my hips might be assisiting them in this endeavor. i’m really sick of my long hair, but haven’t been able to go home to get it cut...

dolls, please help me find this dress on the cheap. important aspects: black! long sleeved fitted but loose, cut slim. i’d prefer a more scoop neck. this is embarassing to admit, but i love that poly/spandex mix that flatters and never wrinkles, if done right it’s so soft. i’m really cheap at the moment, but send anything my way. mini. MINI. i hate mini skirts, but i...
