happy monday


We're in the home stretch with this January bullsh*t. Is the good news.

Also, you must read this article about Iris Apfel immediately if not sooner. I personally took great cheer not only from the insane fashion but also from the report that Apfel and her husband of 62 years have "been so busy, working and travelling and collecting and speeding in the Maserati" that they "haven't had time" for children.

Take that, breeders.

  1. happy monday? who are you and what have you done with esb?

    i read that article and she is quite the fascinating lady. and yes, kiddos aren't for everyone. we want to be breeders, but are seriously considering only having one, and even that people gawk at. they act as if we're doing the biggest disservice to ourselves, the one child, and humanity. sounds like a personal problem to me...

  6. If I can someday lounge around my living room in a red boa, that would make the rest of this shit bearable.

    Thanks for posting!
