New Best Friends? Pt. IV

Dear Marion Cotillard,

Can you be more chic? I mean come on! So here's the plan: I am going to come to France, and we can be new best friends. I am envisioning croissants and berets and museums and most likely some shopping. So how about it?


I mean how ridiculously chic is that?! Additionally, see my post about her on my glasses blog!

New Best Friends? Pt. III

Dear Drew Barrymore,

You are pretty cool, I'm pretty cool, so let's be friends! I think it's a swell plan. I really enjoy Ever After, even if it is awfully cheesy. And The Wedding Singer is the best! Oh, and I was so so impressed with Whip It. What a lovely movie, snaps to you! And additionally, I think you are ever so stylish. So new best friends, what do you think? Let me know.

The Pillars of the Earth

Today, I watched The Pillars of the Earth. Yes, ALL of it. All 8 hours in one day. It was THAT GOOD! Oh my goodness, such nail-biting action. And so many amazing actors. Particularly of note were:

Rufus Sewell, my favorite!
and Matthew MacFadyen, so dreamy!

But I think the person who made the miniseries for me was one, Mr. Eddie Redmayne. Oh my goodness gracious is he attractive. How about some photos? But of course!
Look at that face! Just look at it! How could you say no to 8 hours of that?

Freckles! He has freckles!

And look, he's even dashing!

Favorite! Needless to say, I added him to the dreamy list. Because there is a list. So hey, you have 8 hours to spare, don't you? So watch!

New Best Friends? Pt. II

Dear Ellen Page,

You seem super cool. I really liked you in Juno, not to mention Whip It. And Inception probably seemed like a good idea at the time, so that is understandable. So here is my question for you: do you want to be new best friends?

Can you tell I have been frequenting Weheartit recently? Lots of good photos! Here is my favorite of Ellen Page: love the bike + the shoes!

You know who else is super chic? Gwyneth Paltrow, that's right! And I can even forgive her naming her child Apple.

p.s. Happy Thanksgiving!

The Universe

Note: I wrote this for a Belle & Sebastian contest about love. I couldn't find a place otherwise on my computer to put it and my blog was already up, so it is just fine if you completely ignore it.

If the whole history of Earth since it first formed was thought of as 24 hours, humans began just 30 seconds ago. Human beings are so young, so how can we even begin to fathom love? Some stars have been around for billions of years, and yet we are preoccupied with movie stars here on Earth: who is dating who, who cheated on who, who divorced who. Such trivialities become banal when faced with the unfathomable age of the universe. And yet we persist- we laugh and love and lose and live our lives until we die. And why? To what purpose, to what end? How is it that so many books and songs and movies are devoted to such an amorphous, abstract concept? I try to see, I try to feel what so many others describe, but I still wonder how such a little word can carry such a big weight. Answers are never easy when it comes to a subjective emotion. I look up at the sky and wonder, do stars love? Do they find each other in the unending space, and hold on to each other, clinging really to one emotion? Is their love akin to that of humans, only projected across millions of years? Do stars experience disappointment and defeat, or are they just plasma held together by gravity? We can be thought of as plasma held together by gravity, so really, how different are humans and stars? And is it really such a stretch to think that love is not, in fact, something only experienced by humans?

I'm loving these pretty pieces from Wren! Nowadays, I especially like slouchy, off-the-shoulder tops, so these tees are perfect (although slightly out of my price range)!

Buddy Holly's Glasses

Vision impaired people across the globe rejoice, I have always felt that rather than detract from a person's presentation of themselves, glasses actually add attractiveness! And now there is a new blog devoted just to that: attractive people in attractive glasses. So you should go visit and marvel in all the good-looks and spectacles.
