“I’d think, as the construction lights on the cranes came on at dusk, stretching deeper and deeper into Tokyo Bay, that I was becoming a sort of amanuensis and that I should probably record what he said about Vienna before the First World War, sit at his elbow with a notebook. I never did. It seemed formal and inappropriate. It also seemed greedy: that’s a good rich story. I’ll have that. Anyway, I liked the way that repetition wears things smooth, and there was something of the river stone to Iggie’s stories.”

Also

D.M’s piece on Slate.

I listen to music while I cook, but I can no longer listen to it while I read.

I like to walk to and from work with my iPod playing, but I hate using it on public transportation.

What about you?

 hmmm?

I meant Tuesday. A BBC Miniseries binge got in the way of my weekend plans.

In the meantime, get high off of svpply.

I am taking a break from obsessively checking my march madness bracket to post this picture of the giant lily which will be keeping me company while I’m holed up in my apartment all weekend. It’s raining nonstop for the next three days, so I plan to stay in and clean house, watch games, finish my book, start another book, make blood orange jam, practice my Photoshop skiiillz and start my new blog which I will debut to you on MONDAY.

If you know what’s what, you’ll check back then.

I just acquired 3 new pairs of omg shoes! for my birthday and since they are still new and clean and pretty I set them up all fancy and style blogger-like on the coffee table and snip-snapped with my camera. 

I wear my shoes to death. Most of my flats don’t last longer than 6 months, so I’m thinking of getting all of these resoled right away to see if that extends their life. I hear this is one of those “style secret” things that french girls do which makes them so much better than we when it comes to their clothes. It certainly seems practical and I am all about practicality when it comes to shoes. Practical heel heights, practical prices, must go with practically everything I own, etc.
