My move to Europe over three months ago has been fruitful. The US, Asia, now Europe. I feel so blessed to see all of these places. None of which however have compared to the beauty of this city.

“But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight.”

― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

[Fashion] is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.

UNSUNG HEROES OF THE 90s.

A lot of people think they are just movies we grew up with- but are they really just that? I think they have, in one way or the other, influenced the way we have lived. The simple do's and dont's they mask in a wonderfully entertaining serving of film. It's like asparagus wrapped in bacon lol.



In the words of the highly underrated Cher:

"So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, "What about the strain on our resources?" Well it's like when I had this garden party for my father's birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. 'cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin'.

I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians.

And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much."

Don't tell me you didn't swoon over her computer controlled closet!

My lips an inexhaustible resource of pleasure for her / i was a miner unwilling to stop until i had reached the Earth's core / The sky is grey and it's been raining all day / there's nothin to do but read things from the days.

Oh the little politician in me.

Just finished:



The Coup by Jamie Malanowski is a captivating read. Its highly entertaining albeit its initial political appeal. It also gives you a full view of possibilities and encourages a whole lot of doubt. I found myself nodding, snickering and marrying all sorts of emotions with the turn of every page. It's entirely fictional, or is it?

Reading now:

If poison, arson, sex, narcotics, knives
have not yet ruined us and stitched their quick,
loud patterns on the canvas of our lives,
it is because our souls are still too sick.
- from "To the Reader" by Charles Baudelaire

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.

No words. The whole time, seeing you, hearing you...ah! Your hands feel great too, and your hug was just to die for plus you have the most insatiable scent damn it. I couldn't stop singing the one and only song in my head... "Would you Mind" by Janet Jackson. Okay, a little perverted, but this is no longer High School Musical LOL

I love you.

How close was I to you?
