vincent d'onofrio


makes me
LAFF hahaha

look at this [acne jeans] dress:  GIVE ME A BREAK!

wtf?  i know they're supposed to be so fashion-forward and supercool (swedish) but this is kinda ridiulous.  omg, i'll probably be coveting this next year, oh no

oscar de la renta did not fare better

(on gilt today, i mean)
look at this unflattering on everyone in the whole world coat:

monique lhuillier on GILT? WHAT?!

can you believe monique lhuillier is on gilt? i was in disbelief and my hand shook as i eagerly clicked the mouse in excitement...
it was disappointing


he lives!
in funny animal costumes on barrettes...

how humiliating: a pig costume:

i can't resist..."MONNN chi chi mon chi chiiii oh so soft and cud-dul-lyyy.."

i'm not judging those who buy and wear these and enjoy them--they are probably people with a highly-tuned sense of humor (hopefully)-- and who am i to judge; i'd get these...

and i'd totally wear them

dimple and previn,

the wedding of...

wedding reception at the brooklyn museum!

spanx for men part II

hee hee unwanted bulges

anyone else out there?

do you get sunday night blues (SNB) like JV and i?  it's been a recognized condition for a few years now.  i had it and thot it was only me, then jv told me about her sunday night malaise, then i started reading about it all sorts of magazines, publications.  (mostly it was sunday blues cuz people had to go to work the next day, but hmmm, that doesn't apply to musicians---it should be "musicians' friday nite", fun and carefree, yet it's NOT.)  we used to have it covered going to see colin firth movies, planning on fighting it, being pro-active, but then JV moved to sf, boo hoo...
i even get it on three day weekends, how silly is that? 
that's just dumb.  any other sufferers?

swedish ads are funny

i think it's sold out by now :(

hyden yoo on gilt today
isn't it the cutest dress?

do it un-hypocritically

look at these cards i got at the LAPhil gift shop.  kristin ahlstrom pointed them out to me and their various uses, concert, gym, office, everyday annoying ppl. haha.
just hand them out discreetly, no need to judge or's like handing out a business card, with a very simple message!  you can hand them to the driver next to you who's talking on their cell phone and driving like an idiot!

girly telepathy./becky boyer

skip this if you're a boy.  skip this also if you think i have a tendency to be silly.

ok, girly telepathy...IT EXISTS!!!
just happened to me today.  the last few days to be precise, i've been looking at other girls' toes at work and thinking, Why is their polish so shiny? Do I need to get a real professional pedicure to make it that shiny?  Then, i thought, duh, they're using some fancy top coat--THAT is what i'm missing!  but then, (like i said, real deep thoughts here, stay if you can handle it) i kept forgetting to buy it and i didn't know what kind to buy, blah blah...
my toenails were dull, unshiny, a pretty red, but no glossy sheen, no real shine...
(just look at polish, avoid looking at my misshapen toes):

then, i get to work, and becky hands me this bag full of goodies---which i didn't look at til break.
guess what the first item i pulled out of the bag was!
O-M-G right?
now look! i wonder if you can tell the diff with my little camera +
limited photog skills:

oh well. you get my point. it's not really about the shiny nails (but they're REAL SHINY),
it's about the GIRLY TELEPATHY~
how bout that for evidence? i mean, becky and i sat together on a stand for 5 years straight; it's a marriage of sorts, we like to joke.  (but hey, it's no joke..cuz dude, we got a BOND.)

incidentally, becky was sporting some gorgeous new earrings today:
it's kinda like a fleur de lys, but not.
anyway, i had my camera out cuz i heard that amy irving and isaac mizrahi were around for the opera rehearsal.  amy irving sang right to the left of me, she put herself right in the middle of the orchestra... but it was too close for me to take a picture.  i mean, i have to respect her space (and my dignity) even tho' i'm always surprisingly star-struck---more ridiculously excited than i'd like to admit.  unlike her new role as the new captain on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, ms. irving now has light hair and light eyebrows.  just some trivia.  anyway, i remember her most from Crossing Delancey and that woody allen Deconstructing Harry (where i believe she played a violist, ha ha).
this is how i think of her in my mind.  but she actually looks more like:
which took some brain adjustment.. she is crying a lot in Send in the Clowns. she seems to be a very emotional person, so different from how i saw her in L&O, where she's tough and unexpressive with a little new yawk accent.
anyway, since i didn't take any pictures and was frustrated,
i took some fun pics of opera rehearsal---looks like fun, huh? (yes)

chris tantillo and josh maccluer at break

ok, i've gone off on several tangents during this post...haha!
