Roxie gave me strawberries yesterday, so into them. The tattoo is not mine, just wanted to show what my nails currently look like!

Also, A.O. Scott on the acting in Eclipse:

"Mr. Lautner still seems to have recently escaped from a high school cheerleading squad somewhere, and Mr. Pattinson’s pout conveys not the existential angst of a lovelorn immortal, but rather the peevishness of a guy who just lost a Greta Garbo lookalike contest — for the third time in a row! — to his own girlfriend."

YES cannot wait.

The Sartorialist and I agree on two things (if not more, Scott) that the Bottega Veneta recent menswear collection is top-notch but,

"[al]though the design details are fantastic, I don't want to spend a ton of money on cargo shorts."


Why am I so attracted to menswear? Is it because women's fashion has experienced a particular lean towards the masculine? feminine v. masculine--the lines have blurred, and (w0)man do I like it!

I mean, I've been lookin' for a pair of brown leather short-shorts:

That perfect white-shirt with a teeny-tiny pocket??

and burgundy! wonderful! too bad women can't swap shirts for scarves.

there is this gnar website called (weird) that has download-able archives of almost every manual camera made. SIIICK. my 1970s all steel Canon F-1's manual came with sweet photos:

shiiiit i wish i was a BA asian chick with knee pads and roller blades.

some recent quotes i have heard

"The most shrill fucking hoes that ever entered the atmosphere" -Maggie about some girls at the Wiltern.

"Such a peaceful man...and so wise" -Colin on John Wooden.

"I'm hard of hearing" -Jessie's excuse as she walks away from a mexican dude hitting on her in downtown.

"He's THE JEW" -Maggie trying to point out someone to me in a room full of people. It worked.

"I'm feeling a little extraordinary right now" -Mia in santa barbara.

"It's like cry wolf, you know? Don't fucking do that" -Tracey about a girl who always fakes injuries.

"But you're like... a sexy bro" -Maggie on Michelle's style.

i have

such intense wanderlust!

some weird things

i've made recently. all a bit iffy.

got this bread 'n butter pickle recipe from Laura's copy of BUST magazine.

inside was a rad step-by-step guide for summer picnics which included recipes for blackberry jam on bbq skewers, my favorite adult drink Pimm's Lemonade, and these pickled guys.

"jacked up banana bread" from "smittenkitchen" .com

both titles kind of make me cringe.
the recipe doesn't really make that much but i did happen to eat half of it in one sitting.

on a non-food related note, i picked up these mom jeans from Slash after . i have a perfect pair of pants in my mind and i think i was a bit delusional when choosing these. i think it was the mixture of being underground with two intimidating women eating burritos.

i don't know if i should try to take them apart and taper them myself or save the grief and just cut them into shorts. we'll see...

i'll probably regret putting a picture of my crotch on the internet. w/e

mr. wind

I am not usually one to get excited about commercials, but this is just too good! Besides, wind energy is always something to get behind.
