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 a crafty mini quilt all framed:



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


owie (ow-wii)

12 01 2009

had lunch with rachel today, rachel-who-loves-all-things-horses rachel.  finally unloaded an extremely high art mini quilt i made for her YEARS ago.  if you knew rachel like i know rachel, the resemblance is quite uncanny.  especially the


lunch was edamame, sushi and hot sake.  rach opted for the mangotini.dscf0300_edited1

after lunch i made rachel teach me this “wii” thing so i could remain current with seemingly EVERYONE who is wii bowling.  and so i wii bowled.  i wii tennised.  i wii golfed.  i wii baseballed.  i am very (vewii) sore.  my body is KILLING me, and by body, i mean ass.  thankfully, rachel also owns a shiatsu heated massage chair pad which i sat against for 40+ minutes.   did wonders for the back, nothing for the backside.  oh tomorrow.  i fear for my hind quarters tomorrow.

anyone catch my boyfriend, ricky gervais, presenting at the golden globes last night?  he is the funniest man on the planet.  and he was robbed, robbed i say, in not getting more accolades for his movie “ghost town,” my fav movie of 2008.  catch him here.   i love seeing kate capshaw laughing her brains out.  and brad pitt’s duh-face speaks volumes.  what an idiot.
