“A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his image.”

Whenever anyone else writes about California, I wish I was reading Joan Didion on the subject instead.

One must make an effort each day — not just occasionally.

Today, I made the effort to avoid work.  Tomorrow I will make an effort to:

a) shower (sometimes I do not do this every day.  or every other day)

b) apply mascara (it makes a big difference, but when I rub mine eyes it gets all over mine face)

c) draw (a drawing a day.  that is the goal)

Three efforts!  Three efforts tomorrow, Cosmo.  And watching tv and binging on hummus is no where on the effort list which means that if come effortlessly to me.  Some of us are just lucky.

The word of the day is

poshlust

from the Russian for vulgarity

Nabokov’s definition:

“Not only the obviously trashy but mainly the falsely important., the falsely beautiful, the falsely clever, the falsely attractive.”

Where did you go?   Where did I go?  Let’s make like the beatles and GET BACK.

Me, I just needed some time to get organized.  I also needed to take the GRE and write emails to people asking them to write emails about me.  You wouldn’t think that would take very long, but I am slow when it comes to these things.

Now I need to rewrite a paper on the medieval bestiary, update my CV, work on a drawing portfolio and tell people why I want to go to GRAD school.

That is what I am doing in my free time.  When I break from that I watch America’s Next Top Model, read Game of Thrones (it is very good!) or move things around my apartment in the name of that thing next to godliness. 

But I will be blogging again starting now.  So you – you come back!  OK?
