ever heard of Red Wine Headache? i only knew it as something i experienced after taking just a sip of red wine. i get an awful migraine which only feels better if i go right to bed in a pitch black room, the first time i figured this out i was absolutely miserable about missing the entire evening. but apparently its an actual thing— not just an allergy to sulfites or anything-turns out...

i love my house because.. coffee is the main event- my mom is not much of a cook, it doesn’t interest her. what she does love is coffee, dunkin donuts blends to be exact. there is almost always a pot on and it is always delicious. if you can find a mug you can be caffeinated all day. the mug finding part can be tricky as i think my mother tends to leave them in her room. there are moments...
mom: and where is your party going to be?
me: circle of dance.. and i'm going to be the prettiest girl there. (pause to think about it for a few minutes)...just now take pictures of me.

dear miley cyrus
come here, i need to tell you something.— everyone looks good at fifteen. even if you don’t think you do, you do. you’re nothing special. nor are you grown up, adult-sexy, or sophisticated. i’m sorry. now please put your pants on and turn your digital camera in. love, g.
my dad had this friend when i was growing up. he was a single guy, a veteran from the navy i think, a lawyer [like my dad]. they were basically drinking buddies, my father drank very rarely, but when he did it was with this man. my dad had friends who were like our uncles, but this man never really was— he wasn’t really brough around us much. if my dad was with him they were out...

it is literally raining cats and dogs outside. i didn’t notice until i turned around and became conscious of the sound of the rain. i didn’t notice despite the fact that my room got really dark because there is no sunlight. i’m listening to testimonials on ADHD on the NYTimes. I just listened to an eight year old girl speak about her experience with it and started crying. my...

i read this blog sometimes on glamour called Margarita Shapes Up, honestly i don’t read it very often because mostly she pisses me off. Margarita pisses me off because she has been given an amazing opportunity: loose weight with the support of a blog community, write a blog and make money and still hold down your job, go on TV and discuss it. i want that opportunity. she pisses me off...

i am minutes from finishing Milos Forman and Jean-Claude Carriere’s Goya’s Ghost, and heavens.. it is a depressing movie. it never gets happy or light.. i mean.. the inquisition didn’t so. its to be expected. i’ve never watched an inquisition piece before, quelle depressing, it is absolutely HORRIBLE to watch the hollywood version—which i’m sure is sugar coated...

man stabbed by homeless ex-con. →
this is insane, and so to be expected. it is why you do not get involved with the homeless, there is sometimes a reason they are spitting on women in subways. ugh, it makes me feel so sick— this man killed someone before, what’s to stop him from doing it again? nothing.

who wants to fly me to rome, lyon, london, oslo, copenhagen, manchester, montreal, lucca, or nice (or others) for Leonard Cohen’s tour? i only need to go to ONE. but i NEED to go to one. this is awful, he doesn’t even come to new york. and new york is so important in his songs— doesn’t he realize?!
famous blue raincoat.
“I had a good raincoat then, a Burberry I got in London in 1959. Elizabeth thought I looked like a spider in it. That was probably why she wouldn’t go to Greece with me. It hung more heroically when I took out the lining, and achieved glory when the frayed sleeves were repaired with a little leather. Things were clear. I knew how to dress in those days. It was stolen from...
