Rainy day off—no fair!
So I decided I had better do some accounting and house cleaning. I managed to clean the entire place, but when I sat looking at that big pile of receipts, I knew it wasn’t going to happen. What’s that thing non-small business owners have? Fun, or something? I decided I should have some of that. So I decided to do some sewing (also sort of a chore, albeit one I like—I have a real problem with fun, it seems.), and in the course of looking for a shirt that needed hemming I decided to fuck everything, dress up like Patti Smith, and spend some quality time with the camera self-timer. Behold!
We’ve got several problems here. The shirt is more like what caterers wear, and the “skinny tie” is, yes, an untied bow tie. I also had to wear Jacob’s black jeans, which don’t fit nice and tight like Patti’s. Alas. Perfection is impossible, Lagusta!
Am I…um…being really weird on the internet right now? I sort of think so.
(Ignore those towels in the background.)
Along with the Kevin & Winnie photo, I’m starting a real collection here!
PS: I watched I Like Killing Flies last night (fun! I did it!) and my god, it was amazing. Remember that article Calvin Trillin wrote about Shopsin’s years ago? How wonderful to know such cranks exist in the world. He’s basically my hero. (Let’s just ignore the title, the fly killing, and the non-veganness in order to get the larger message [individuality in a world that has basically been stripped of it is valuable] OK?).
