Sorry that I’ve been so very neglectful over here. I’ve been sort of distracted/busy, and also slightly sick. It’s still woefully snowy and cold out (I think almost six feet in a month?? Wow) and I’ve been mostly stuck in my apartment for a long time. I’m getting a bit tired of it.
Anyway! To catch up:
& In tights, polkadot wellies, and new coat (SO soft) from my mom, on New Year’s Eve:
& Oh, bow dress, I love you!:
& A super-cute little Viewmaster Christmas ornament, from my mom:
& A new shower curtain (French vocabulary) from my parents. I love it!:
Frost/Nixon STILL hasn’t come here. Sigh. I hope it does very soon. Also, I’m very excited for Last Chance Harvey (trailer here) which looks very sweet. I love Emma Thompson & any trailer that uses Badly Drawn Boy‘s “The Shining” (the subject line is from its lyrics) automatically owns a bit of my heart. It’s one of those songs that makes me gasp every time I hear it, because it’s so brilliantly gorgeous, and I cannot hear it without tearing up, in a mostly good way. It reminds me of a specific time in my life, an optimistic time that I’ve been trying to get back to lately.
Here’s a lovely live performance of it in London, from 2004:
More soon, indeed. xoxo
