the keeper of the key to the locks

Normally every year on the first Saturday of December, Husband and I have our Annual Holiday Throwdown party where we get all dressed up, have lots of friends over, and eat and drink too much. Well this year we're having a baby instead so, you know.

BUT I can still long for the dresses, right? has a bunch of limited edition dresses that are to die for. Here are some:

Coral flapper gown

Bronze flapper gown

White, long flapper gown

I love too, how they stuck to the truer flapper gown length (knee length or beyond) rather than cheapening it up for "modern" women. Not everything has to be short, even on skinny girls.

I did it my way

Well, actually, Su-Lauren, you were different. 

You didn't want a perfect life, a typical life, or even a normal life.

You wanted a one-of-a-kind.
How we doing?

Vaseline over the Lenses

Just as the acorn existed within the oak, even when the oak was a seedling; and as the oak existed within the earth, even before there were trees; and as the earth existed within the galaxy, even before there were planets... there has never been a time, dear sweet Su-Lauren, when you did not exist within me... during which we dreamed all else into being.

Far out.

Love you.

Well done.
Happy everything,

These last few weeks before the baby's here (3!!!) are getting to me. All the gross, unlady-like physical symptoms are really getting to me. I'm having Braxton Hicks contractions out the wazoo which makes Felix get all crazy jumpy, and that's wonderful. But then the horrid acid indigestion (to put it so politely) that comes with that- Vom. Literally!

So I'm ready to have this baby. Pregnancy stage, been there done that. I am really trying to listen to everyone who says Oh I just savored those last weeks. It'll be the last time with that baby that you can just be the one body and two of you together. But really. I'm over it. And the whole, Once they're out they can't go back in, scare tactic, over that too. I'm ready to have this baby (I think). Husband is ready to have this baby (I think). It's time to get this story started. (burp)

Of Montreal makes me very happy!

If it isn't penetration, then it isn't worth the kiss

Thanks Pedro the Lion for always providing such a cheery title line.

Sucker Punch: Ladies, even you can be a badass in 5 easy pieces.

So I'm all for a bunch of ladies kicking ass, not taking names. But I mean really, do we need another film positioning it's strong women into the center of a circle jerk? I'll probably at least rent it, but don't get me started on why films feel the need to put their female action heroines in Sailor Moon short skirts and thigh highs, bukkake centralism at it's best.  For those of you who haven't, your homework is reading John Berger's Ways of Seeing

You breathe 1s and 0s

I think this mom is awesome and I hope everyone starts subscribing to her blog. I especially love how she doesn't seem to care if you do consider her cool or not. Because she's right. It's truly none of your business.

I know people look at me and say, "Is he a Washington insider?"
