In search of some design originality

I've always been intrigued by women who had a true sense of style -- not the ones who wear the current trends, mind you, but the ones who create fashion -- have an innate sense of what looks great with what, and then wear them, damn what the fashion magazines might say. I feel the same way about people who decorate their homes in a truly individual manner -- I love individuals who refuse to follow the trends, but who instead know how to put together a room with a clear understanding of colour, and form and function, but without relying on "what is fashionable."  I love this. Which is why I tend to recoil from anything that is described as "mid-century modern." ...more

Dating Episode #0: My Elbow Was a Delicious Cake

We went around the circle in grieving group. What happened in your life this week? I was all a-giggle. “I BOUGHT PERFUME! Here smell this!” I oozed manically, extending my cleavage to Viv.

Awkward Family Photos

Say "awkward family photos" and the first thing that comes to my mind is my grandmother's house, any Thanksgiving between the years of, say, 1978-2004. We were all forced to gather around one end of the table in a too-small dining room, while she tried to operate a camera that always - always - malfunctioned (Disc cameras, even, for a few of those years. Remember those? See Boing Boing's "Bad Old Days: Kodak Disc 4000 Camera" for a refresher and then give your PowerShot a big kiss. ) ...more
