"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
I WAS doing ok. just signed online for a second on lisa's computer to check when the library was open to return my overdue books. but then i clicked the link to dan savages blog and read his entry about never getting over your mother dying at christmas time, so then i got out elizabeth crane's when the messenger is hot to read about her mother dying over the holidays, and then i just curled up in lisa's bathrobe on the couch and decided to spend the rest of the day reading my favorite children's novels and eating the fancy truffles justin sent me. (thanks justin! ) i got new underwear for christmas. i can unpack, do laundry later.
