so much to discuss…

22 09 2009

…and yet so little of significance. 

first, ricky gervais.  i cannot begin to tell you how much i love a funny man.  emmys 2009?  ya see him?  click here (bonus – jon stewart is also in the clip.)  ricky gervais has a new movie coming out – “the invention of lying” – i have a feeling i’ll be there opening day (october 2nd) for the first showing. 

oprah.  monday’s show.  a 60s inspired retro show.  oprah looked fabulous.  especially her hair. the audience was all decked out in 60s garb as well.  the show itself was so-so, but the mad men segment was worth it.  

letterman.  obama.   good stuff.  the heart shaped potato?  i was dyin’. 

organic made-from-scratch spanish rice.  made by me.  no lie.  DSCF3038

on a rice cracker.  somehow “rice crackers as utensils” just doesn’t have the same flow to it as “chips as utensils.”  and besides, it’s rice overload.  rice on rice.  that’s too much rice.       DSCF3041

 

and so i give you spanish rice on a chip:DSCF3042

and i continue to bring yet even more sexy in the brown fall boots.  another low-heeled version.  this time from privo.DSCF3052

and goodbye summer.  i can’t bear it.  hello fall. 

and what better to go with that spanish rice than a margarita in a gold wheat glass on a vintage red leaf plastic coaster?  is the wheat glass fall-ish?  i say it’s harvesty.  and harvesty = fall.  fall harvest.  and that’s about all the enthusiasm i can muster to welcome launch the fall season.DSCF3056

quick post in anticipation of mad men’s season 3 premiere coming soon.  fun, old  mad-men-esque glass (i’ve never seen this pattern before) holding a refreshing margarita and kitsch souvenir florida tray and coaster holding snacks.  perfect hot summer afternoon snack party tray to enjoy on the porch reading a book.  DSCF0875

yes, sometimes i even read books.





a little on-the-side

27 07 2009

what is the male version of “mistress?”  is there such a word?  i guess “manstress.”  in any event…

my little cottage lovah-on-the-side took a 10 grand drop in price, now making it a serious contender.DSCF0789

my ♥ still belongs to my green, slanty, overgrown love that is probably dangerously too close to powerlines and has the little issue of rotted wood and mold in the middle panel of the greenhouse.  and oh yah, no fridge in the kitchen (nor room for one.)  i can’t help it.  the character in this house appeals to me.  (not to mention its close proximity to a liquor grocery store, thrift store/gas station/hospital (ya never know)/and work.

posting could be light around here for a little while.  i’ve got to figure out a life plan and let’s face it, that could take some time.  it’s been 49 years and i still haven’t knocked out a life plan.  i’m on the lookout for an extra way to earn some moulah, all the while trying to get these real estate people to agree to a 203K mortgage loan.  i’ll be back if something earth-shattering happens, but i don’t believe i’ve written anything earth-shattering to date.

in other non-related, non-earth-shattering news, i heard “mad men” is coming back with its new season august 16th (thank you, lorraine.)   oh thank heavens!  talk about wanting a “manstress.”don in hat_editedcall me.

i do love my sunday nights.  and not just because it’s “mad men” night.  but because it’s my “friday.”  that oh-so-good, peace-of-mind, relaxed state my body transforms into.  and i won’t post a photo of don draper again, ok, maybe i will.  but in addition, here’s a photo of another gooseneck lamp to pay homage to the show where the gooseneck lamp is KING.

   "You haven't seen Kim around, have you?"“You haven’t seen Kim around, have you?”

 

and funny thing, i DID buy a powerball ticket and won 12 bucks.  won’t get me my dream house, but it’s a start.





sunday again, already?

5 10 2008

“tell me about your night at work, kim.”

“oh, don…”
