Quirkiest Tchotchke Ever?

I bought this today at Catbird. Not sure why, perhaps it's because I only have a month left here in Brooklyn, and my Catbird obsession will probably go unrequited when I'm in South America and Los Angeles. And geodes are so hip right now.

Anyway, after looking at it for a while, I started to get Georgia O'Keeffe vibes from it. Agree, or disagree?

Just Back From Italy...

And I'm happy to report that it was one of the craziest* trips of my life. The food, the scenery, the weather, the petty criminals, the hot cops, the ugly waiters, the men, the wine, the men.... Anyway, here's a smattering of some photos I took using my iPhone camera (after my favorite Pendleton purse was stolen, along with my credit cards and camera in Florence).

Between Milan, Cinque Terre, Florence, Rome, Tuscany, and Lake Como, my favorite place was definitely Rome – hence bolstering my belief that I am and always will be a Big City Person.

For more coverage, you can check out my AOL Travel posts on driving in Italy and 24 hours in Lake Como.

Sigh. When can I go back?

*This post is dedicated to the best flight attendant ever, Dolce, of American Airlines. Thank you, sister. THANK YOU.

This is What Came on My iPod...

Upon leaving my office today. SO APPROPE. Remember this post? I do! It might have been three years since I wrote that, but the gears are finally in motion to make it a reality. This calls for smileys :)

Yup. It's happening!

I ♥ the New Cut Copy

"Need You Now" is my favorite of the day. So '80s, so dreamy. And that artwork? Sheer amazing.

Bahama Mammas

Jenny C and I are just back from a few days at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort, where we tore it up, laughed, danced (and injured my back on a beach lounge chair... long story...)

We made use of the Bahamas' free companion airfare offer, making this the second MLK holiday in a row that I've escaped to the Miami-Bahamas area for the long weekend.

I wonder where I'll be next year......

New Destroyer Video: "Kaputt"

I'm looking forward to the forthcoming Destroyer album "Kaputt," which will be available January 25. And now, thanks to this spectacular new title track video (via Pitchfork), there's obviously a lot more to be excited about. Flying whales, mid-90s pimple perv teen, and mystical dance sequence? Check, check and check.
