Material girl


Gucci now has video?
Probably temporary link showing 2007 cruise collection. Because I like.

Paper or Plastic?
I had two bags at home that, with their bold science conference labels, were definitely not fashion runway material. They were too large and unwieldy for school. I already had a white canvas bag for, who knows, like, if I ever went to the beach. The point is that my two conference bags had no function...
Meanwhile, I wanted to stop growing my useless stash of supermarket plastic bags and paper bags. For inspiration, I looked to the women of Aix-en-Provence, always alluring, addicted to understated seduction. Years ago, I had watched them walk down to the street markets clutching simple baskets, to hold fruits and a baguette, say.
When Mediterrenean-inspired fashionista meets ex-science conference attendee meets environmentally conscious food buyer, you have me at the supermarket, answering the "paper or plastic" question with "I brought my own bag(s)." I'm really proud of this.

What I want these days, in addition to a fab job, is still mostly media - books, music, movies.

     Hi T!  Thanks for posting a comment on my blog and thanks for reading.  I didn't realize you had seen it.  That's also some good advice you gave about seeing an experience as learning, and this being a way to not regret.  And I just noticed that you have me in your "blogroll".  Cool, thanks!  You should probably make it link to my homepage, though, fyi Bodhi's Grayworld since that's a better reference point.

     Hope to see you around...

Hey hey, Tosin,

wanted to say hi from Detroit because you are one of the few people in the world who lists The Trojan Women among your favorite books. In today's world, this seems like a perfect book to read (again).
