quiche & t.rex

my night went something like this:

baking eggs into a pre-made pie crust and listening to mark bolan croon about his lizard leather boots.  basically the height of pleasure.

(added fun: in this interview with soundcheck the other week, t.rex producer tony visconti discusses who, in his opinion invented glam rock, how he co-produced bowie's "low" though everyone thinks it was brian eno, and spins some good rock history yarns. i'm a sucka for this stuff.)

orchid, jasmine, lace & mint geranium leaves

ode to an L

oh brown ikea sectional
you are not settee-sexy 
you do not posses the right balance of horsehair and springs 
that could have landed you in a much bigger apartment
you have no curvy camel-back qualities 
no one blogs you under "lust" or "loves it"
and yet
you hold so many party guests!
i cannot forsake you
you are my L-shaped savior 
without you i could not have tons of people over on easter to get tipsy
and have an indoor easter egg hunt

thanks to jeff & diana for the images!

bill cunningham, you are true blue

i just love this man. i love him. my ultimate dreams include riding the dragon in The NeverEnding Story, being played by kate hudson in a feature film, and having a picture in "on the street" even if it's just to help make a point of what not to wear.

he's the picture of dedication. i mean, just look at him go!
