"i'm not a invisible. i'm sort of just hidden. like a chameleon, but without the taste for insects." - elizabeth crane, when the messenger is hot
"why was fabulousness important? the world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles." - francesca lia block, necklace of kisses
st. Augustine. yes it's crazy old, esp. compared to Chicago. but pa has old stuff too. the really strange thing is how it's always been a place for rich people to winter. the college used to be a resort, and instead of old churches and gov't buildings and stuff, it's mostly old hotels. it's like no one has ever really lived here, just visited. also, the ancient stone walls made of seashells? totally cool.
