YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I won! I WON! I won!
I actually am one of the first 100 people who were quick enough to participate online! I can't believe it. Let's hope they won't take too long shipping it to my island. Oh man. Let's hope noone of the neighbors steals it...oh well...i am still lucky.
Here you can watch a video of the tote bag and compare to the other years: http://www.petronioassociatesblog.com/?cat=21
The Maltese Falcon is a dense film that unfolds its true beauty very slowly and on subtle levels. The Horus falcon on the other hand is right in your face and always there to accompany you with a thoughtfull eye. That is why i like him so.
That is a very great coat or rather a cloak (by Lindsey Thornburg). It is very expensive (but the fabric seems to be very exclusive.) I bet one can find very similar ones on Ebay for less or at Humana or Oxfam. The time spent looking for something equal might be quite a lot, but then it is at least one-of-a-kind. Other than that it is more fun and fullfilling to make a cloak yourself out of a blanket or another fabric trouvé. If i start with it now, i might have a chance to still wear it the next months, for it is cold.
I never came across an opportunity to read Harry Potter or watch one of the movies. I don't want to exclude myself from that sort of popculture entirely so i started reading Twilight, also to enliven my further language acquisition I am reading the Dutch version. Just finished chapter 3, 'fenomeen'.
Got this today and a similar golden skirt (gold pattern that resembles peacock feathers)and lots of cheap shirts, two mohair scarves, a very melancholic pillow that looks like an octopus and a 'gimmick' sore throat due to a limejuice i almost chung-a-luged at the mall. I was so thirsty. Running around a store always makes one terrible thirsty- which i almost forgot, since it was the first time going to a store in a long time (6 or 7 months?). The winter is just so cold and i never felt like buying anything for such a long time. I think i stick to this routine, buying something online from time to time and only going to a shop twice a year or so. That applies to bookshops, too, for one always finds more than what you were actually looking for(equals buying more shelves), or you end up only getting other books still feeling an emptyness because 'the one' was not to be found. Records can be bought at fleamarkets or garage-sales and tunes- everyone has them on their computers. 'Shopping' your very own closet is more fun and fullfilling, because somehow you never feel empty remembering your old 'friends'. I don't care about the economy for the same reasons i don't pay taxes.
D'arcy will always be alright for me. A Gwen Stefani pushing the envelope, a letter not to be returned to a sender like Kim Gordon and no way stamping her just a dirty blonde. The humble bassplayer and ponyranch-owner.
