Italian Wool

I will learn Italian this year. That being said, let’s be very clear on the definition of “learn.”  In my mind “learn” is that I can go to Italy and get around, I can speak basic phrases, order yummy food and ask directions.  “Learn” may also include having brief and slow conversation, but that’s about…

Above all else, I like quirky.  Add intelligent to quirky and I’m a goner. I love John McIntrye. You may, or may not, know that he was the copy editor and is now a production manager for the Baltimore Sun.  No, I do not live in Maryland, but he is a pretty big deal.  Mr.…

High Performance Fabric

Give me the thing that I love.  Put your hands up, make them touch. When I was in college I used to go to this dinky theatre and watch performance artists. Lady Gaga is the queen of performance art. There is a difference between getting half naked and gyrating on stage for the sake of…

Leather Pants

One hundred and eighty-six in the world.  Everyone has his or her own definitions of badass, exceptional, above the curve…rockstar. This would be one of mine. That’s all from the laundry room.  Sleep Foam Memory Bed.

Expensive Shirt

I’m a little in love with Kai Ryssdal. It’s not a creepy fan love because I’m always a reluctant fan, but I have feelings for him.  Yes, he is an attractive guy, and yes he has a smooth lovely radio voice, but it’s not that kind of love. I love that he’s smart and accomplished…

Compare where you are to where you want to be and you’ll get…nowhere. Songs often speak to a piece of my life or where I’m at for a time. This is one of those songs. She’s such a talent and this is a great live performance. Happy Friday. Enjoy. That’s all from the laundry room.…

I’m pretty sure Charles Schultz and William Randolph Hearst would never sit down to dinner.  They would have a hard time agreeing on the table. Schultz was born nearly 60 years after Hearst, but their lifetimes did cross.  I don’t profess to be a scholar on either man, but it is my opinion they could…

Hidden Pocket

If you mix an egg white and citrus in a drink, the acid sort of cooks the egg white and makes the drink creamy and yummy. I did not know that. I suppose I knew meringue is a similar concept, but I’d never seen an egg white put into a cocktail.  I like surprises.  Not…

Sequined Gown

I love movies.  I’m a sucker for a great romance.  Truth is, I’m pretty silly for even a hint of romance.  I like it when things work out.  I don’t mind the journey or the ups and downs, but I need a happy ending.  I’ve watched romances with less than happy endings, Blue Valentine comes…
