On Monday I was listening to NPR on way home from work. One of the features was on the first "Tweed Ride" in DC. I'm a happy girl. Seriously looooooove it. Love dandies.

Turns out a little blog crush of mine, Garance Dore, was in Vegas at the same time as us. And some cowboys too. There were stetson hats and cowboy boots as far as the eye could see.
Our cab driver on the way back commented on how crowded the airport was going to be because all the rednecks were going home (his words, not mine). He said in his country (Jamaica) if you get on top of a bull to ride it, they'd arrest you. That tickled me.

PS: this also means that the Sart was there. And yet somehow he missed my leopard flats. Shocking! Shocking I say! .
I have the day off of work and I'm at home wishing I could focus on one specific thing to do rather than sit here overwhelmed by the million little things to do.
I finally started working on the scrapbook for our Big Vacation. It's been almost 2-months since I had the pics developed.
We'll see what kind of dent I can make today. In the meantime, I'm wishing I could just whip this shits together a la Martha. *sigh*

I really, really do. Behold, my new shoes:
I wore them all weekend in Vegas to break them in. Mission Accomplished.
Some other lovely leopard finds:
Leopard calf-skin clutch by Ann Taylor (which I saw
in Vegas, but couldn't fathom spending that much on
a wee clutch. $120? Umm..nuh huh.)
W. Kleinberg's Leopard Haircalf Belt (always wish I could
do the skinny belt with sweaters look, which I love, but must
admit that there's a good chance I'd resemble the
Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters if worn - with the
the exception that the bands of flesh would be around
my middle, not my appendages)
Chubby jacket by CORPUS (see Ghostbusters reference above)

My big 3-0 present from my folks is a weekend in Vegas with my One+Only.
And my folks.
I think it's my ma's way of seeing me without actually having to come to where I live. And so we're off. Our only plans that I know of are dinner at Michael Mina's Seablue restaurant. That one I'm actually rather excited about.
Details and pics to follow. And we're off!

Turns out my 63-year old Uncle Ed has always been too cool for school. When the masses abandoned Polaroid cameras for the snazziness of digital's appeal, he stayed the course. And now he finally reaps the reward of his staunch loyalty. Why you ask?
Because it's 'Roid Week on flickr! I think it might just be time to dust off some of the Christmas '93 Polaroids I have stored in my trusty ol' shoe box of pics for the world of flickr to enjoy (assuming, of course, that they are indeed enjoyable).

Last weekend we took the pups to the Alameda small dog park. Unbeknownst to us and our suddenly out of place girls, they were having their annual Halloween costume contest. Behold dogs under 30-lbs in all their costumed (and most likely completely humiliated) glory:

Fall is quite possibly my favorite season. It brings some pretty rad things - cooler weather, leaves changing colors, gourds and pumpkins forever, Scorpio birthdays and, of course, there's Halloween. My birthday is the day after, which was always such a treat growing up; who wouldn't love to wake up next to a big bag full of candy every year on their birthday, guaranteed?
Moving on...this year we're going to a costume party on the 31st to celebrate a friend's birthday. Now, I don't necessarily love to dress up for Halloween, but if forced to, I'm game. We're going as roller girls. [I will neither confirm nor deny having seen and enjoyed "Whip It" and thereby scoring the source of this year's costume inspiration.]
Our friend was good enough to lend us a pair of skates, which I refuse to wear. My One&Only, on the other hand, was all over it:
Here's to hoping she doesn't kill herself.
