Observations from the Window 4.9

It may be a bit late but first I want to wish a Happy Easter to my peeps. Hopefully you found many golden eggs under your tree. For me it was a totally mellow weekend, took some pics, visited Vinnie, had some ribs, and banished politics from my mind. So here I give you some boring fluff from my scribbles.

I was going through some boxes of CDs that I never really unpacked just looking for some to rip. I have at least a thousand CDs so it's easy to lose track when they are stacked in the corner. What I did was re-discover Sheryl Crowe whose music I always loved but who just got lost in that corner. She looks totally stunning in the pics for c'mon, c'mon.

Than, keeping with the same line of thought, there is Anne Hathaway whose Love and Other Drugs was the featured attraction of a VQ movie night. In my dreams Hathaway is the girl I run off to Paris with. What we do there while not roaming the Louvre is a story for another time. There is a scene in the movie, a movie which is actually quite good in a fluffy kind of way, where she is stretching and smoking at the same time, to die for. Her naked breasts are a very, very, prominent part of this film which may explain why I like it. Utter perfection.

There was a good article in the Sunday Times about Ralph Lauren's niece Jenny. Her jewelry is awesome but what grabbed me was how the writer described Lauren's style which she said was "more eclectic artist than all-American, accessorized by the chipped nails and pallor of a type A creative sort who works mostly at night." That just sounded so familiar.

You know I can't totally stay away from politics so also in the Times was a good column by Maureen Dowd about Augusta National still not allowing women membership. In it is an awesome quote by President Obama as he spoke to a women's forum at the White House. "Women are not an interest group. You shouldn’t be treated that way. Women are over half this country and its work force — not to mention 80 percent of my household, if you count my mother-in-law. And I always count my mother-in-law."

Smart man that Obama.
