Devil Designs Prada

Disgusting. What is happening to high fashion and couture?!

This looks like a slot machine on crack.

I'm Into Chicks.

This sweet chick from New York had me grinning ear-to-ear.

The City That Never Sleeps

It's so true. My sister and brother-in-law live in East Village, right on Seventh Ave., above a gay bar, across from Christopher Park. Without earplugs, your sleep will be challenged with the traffic on the road, the "boom-boom-boom" from below, and the whoopin' and yellin' in the park.

Back in D.C. Wednesday morning. The souvenier I'm taking back with me: Mr. Paul, freshly tanned from his visit in Sydney and Singapore.

Q: Who Said The Following?

"I'm looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love. And I don't think that love is here in this expensive suite in this lovely hotel in Paris."

A: Carrie Bradshaw to Aleksandr Petrovsky in the final episode of "Sex and the City".

Speaking of which, I'm off to "The City" tonight and staying through the weekend.

(One other thing: I have that real, ridiculous, inconvenient need-each-other love with Mr. Man, Paul.)

(Awww! Barf!)

Perfect Timing

Parents have gone, and spring has come!

Meet The Parents.

Paul left for Australia last Wednesday, and instead of leaving me to my own devices, my parents stepped in and set up camp here at the house. I've been so busy entertaining them, I haven't had time to 'figger where's Ernie's head.

Shame On You, Louis Vuitton.

Are you kidding me with this? It's a collage of different purses sewn together and the most expensive bag in the world: $42,000. There were only four of the Tribute Patchwork bag made. I didn't shrink the pictures so you can see the details of this sorry trash they put together (the one in the grass is the back side of the bag.)

I am so disappointed in LV. I'm also a little embarrased. It's the most expensive and ugliest bag in the world.

An answer to prayer! After all the visual tests the opthamologist ran me thrrough, he concluded that 1) my vision has improved in some areas 2) disintegrated in others 3) I am able to drive as long as it's bright outside and not too far away. I can live with that.

All Eyes Are On Tomorrow.

I haven't driven since brain surgery five weeks ago due to double vision. To those of you who don't drive much, being car-less is nothing big. But for me, it's big because I like the freedom and convenience of having a car.

My family, Paul, and I have argued over my privilege to drive. While I know my peripheral vision isn't 100%, my ability to see directly in front of me has dramatically improved, is no longer double, and in my humble opinion, quite passable. But tomorrow, I see my opthamologist to let him have the final say once and for all whether it's okay for me to be on the road or not.

I'm stressed. I don't know what I'm going to do if he says I shouldn't be on the road. Will I cry? Get angry? Drive anyway? Buy a puppy?

He better say it's okay, or a new chapter in my life as a pedestrian with a fatal brain tumor begins tomorrow.

Mild "Hogs"

Saw it Saturday.

Ehh- "City Slickers" on bikes.

Friday, March 09, 2007


Hope you like fur, because I'm going huntin' and paying a visit to Punxsutawney Phil, the official critter for Groundhog's Day.

On February 2nd, Phil the groundhog did not see his shadow, predicting that spring would arrive early this year.

Phil, you overweight wanna-be a beaver, it's nearly the middle of March, five weeks after your pesty prediction, and I'm in freezing cold record-breaking temperatures here in DC. You better be right very soon, or I'm getting an exterminator to pour gas down your rodent burrow to make sure you ain't predicting a thing next year.

Food On The Brain

I don't know why, but I sure am craving lots of different foods. Maybe it's because I'm back in the freezing cold, record-breaking tempuratures in DC. If you live in the area and have a craving for any of these guilty pleasures, give me a buzz. Let's both indulge, pig out, and feel guilty and fat afterwards.

*Nachos- smothered in melted jack and cheddar cheeses, topped with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, and chicken. Followed by some cheese quesadilla. Then a tray of enchiladas as a third course.

*"Cheesy Bites Pizza" from Pizza Hut- pepperoni please! Let's see how good it really looks and tastes compared to the one in all the advertising.

*Mussels tossed in garlic and wine served over pasta or shrimp scampi- accompanied with garlic bread with melted mozerella cheese on top.

*Popeye's Fried Chicken- a plate of their fried boneless chicken tenders, served with mash potatoes and gravy, four biscuits and large fries for each person at the table.

*Now, the piez de resistance, dessert- to each his own, but I'm going for either a homemade yellow cake with vanilla frosting, or a similar birthday sheet cake from Safeway (not Harris Teeter or Giant. Safeway's is lighter and more fluffy.)

Sounds good? You know where to find me.
