you first

She has a beautiful, fluffy dress
and she has high heels, high heels.
If you have high heels people will love you.

If you want people to love you,
you have to love yourself first.
That's what it means.

I made veggie curry this week and the smell filled up my little apartment with deliciousness.

home is wherever i'm with you

I'm heading to north carolina for a few days - meanwhile, here is the video for my current favorite song, complete with tambourine, whistling, and long-haired-hippies.

Alabama, Arkansas,
I do love my ma and pa,
Not the way that I do love you.

Holy moley, me-oh-my,
You're the apple of my eye,
Girl I've never loved one like you.

Man oh man you're my best friend,
I scream it to the nothingness,
There ain't nothing that I need.

Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie,
Chocolate candy, jesus christ,
Ain't nothing please me more than you.

Ahh Home. Let me come home
Home is wherever I'm with you.
Ahh Home. Let me go ho-oh-ome.
Home is wherever I'm with you.

for a time

For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

first paris hilton, now... kiki smith?

the whole idea of celebrity perfumes is hilarious, and i have to say, when i saw this i didn't know if it was a joke or not:
what do you think the "limited-edition signature fragrance" of a boundary-pushing feminist contemporary artist would smell like? well, apparently, the answer is the subtle combination of "cat pee" and "plant sex".
(high five, kiki!)

i couldn't not post this.

come out of your cave

i've been kind of holed up in my own little apartment-cave this week. it is so cold, and it is still getting dark so early, it just makes me want to light candles and snuggle on the couch forever.

big time yum

my favorite food this winter, hands down, is butternut squash risotto. it is rich and creamy but still light and vegetable-y. not to mention it's pretty nice to look at.

cottage tour

michal ann and frank's lake cottage is teeny-tiny and stuffed with beautiful art, plants, books, and antiques. we spent a few days with them and the dogs before heading down to madison to see my parents.
