A year or so

So, as Port just posted, there were pictures on my camera from a year or so ago that I recently found. It was rather confusing why I hadn't ever seen them before. (They were saved to my internal memory.) Such a nice surprise! This our friend Tony. He has his own blog called My Cake On Life. Strangely, whenever I think of him, a combination of 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon, chinese food, and Disney/Broadway musicals pop into my head. He is a very interesting person, I swear. Just finished The Giver yesterday, now I am on to a old friend's recommendation: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I thought the cover looked pretty cool. I'll keep you updated on my thoughts. Interestingly enough, Foer and Nicole Krauss, author of The History of Love (which I also just recently read) married around the time the book's were released. Both books are apparently simular in context. Saw a trailer for Woody Allen's new film coming out in a year or so called Midnight in Paris. I can't wait to see it! (J-nnG-nn this one's for you.) And what is this about Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in a film to be released in a year or so? She is so beautiful.

Hope you all are having a GREAT day! : )


"He blinked, and it was gone."

I just recently started re-reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. I read it in middle school, before I could really understanding the meaning. I just love how she describes color as "change" or "being different." Honestly, though... how do you desribe color? So cool.

Here are some of my favorite quotes so far:

"No one mentioned such things: it was not a rule, but was considered rude to call attention to things that were unsettling or different about individuals." -Chapter 3

"But when he looked out across the crowd, the sea of faces, the thing happened again. The thing that had happened with the apple. They changed. He blinked, and it was gone. His shoulder straightened slightly. Briefly he felt a tiny sliver of sureness for the first time." -Chapter 8


Grace notes are unnecessary, but so pretty

First off, I would just like to say that my parents are the best ever. And my father just said "Don't hate." in a text message. Brilliant. These shoes are called "Grace Note Heel" from ModCloth.com. How cute is that?

I just finished re-reading The Great Gatsby the other day and fell in love with it. I found out today that they (who is they anyway?) are remaking the film to release in 2012. Leo DeCaprio as Gatsby and Tobey McGuire as Nick. Could be interesting.

What an adorable idea for a playroom! Mental note : )


Dark Rimmed Glasses

Look how BEAUTIFUL the gray based ship wallpaper is! I am in love. With a red couch?

I love this room. I would like in my apartment please. Thank you.

Isn't Joanna the cutest? I wish I had some thick, dark rimmed glasses. It's so dramatic looking.

"I guess I have always been deeply terrified to really be someone's wife since I know from life one cannot love another, ever, really." -Marilyn Monroe

I started reading a book called A Million Little Pieces. It's an intense memoir written by a drug addict in rehab named James Frey who fabricated his entire novel. It's pretty depressing so far.
