Our New Motto
Perceptive woman: Anytime you overhear people, if you only hear a second of what they say, it's always completely stupid.
Is It Wrong That This Seems Reasonable to Us?
(cabbie cuts bus off, both cab and bus are stopped at traffic light. Bus driver opens his window)
Bus driver: I'm gonna hit one of you! You know, it's my goal to hit one of you people before I retire, it really is--you almost just made it happen! You people gotta learn someday! (turns to passenger) We're allowed one accident per year. I'm saving all of mine for that.

Dude #1: What're you even talking about?
Dude #2: The thing with Cheryl.
Dude #1: What's wrong with you? That was this morning! Get over it, already!
Dude #2: Uh...what'd you think I was talking about?
Dude #1: The asshole who shoved past us on the escalator.
Dude #2: Oh...I didn't notice.
Dude #1: See? That kind of thing, that's what Cheryl was talking about. She has a point, you know.
Now Shut the Fuck Up, You Unwanted Accident
Little Girl: Mommy, why do people in New York always wear black?
Mommy: I don't know. Maybe they just don't like looking pretty.

Intercom: Please take a headset before you get on the plane, because they're free now. They're actually free once you get on the plane, but I charge $50 labor for bringing them to you once you're on. So it's in your best interests to take one now. Can you tell I'm a happy person?

The new O.P.I collection is more desirable than ever... It's going to be very hard to convince myself NOT to buy these lucious shades and stick to the 2$ run-of-the-mill pharmacy ones !!! The names are also quite hilarious, and always make me wonder whether I could ever be employed as an O.P.I name inventor (which will hopefully have the job benefits of free nail polish... ). Okay, maybe I'll just buy one. or two. or three. But seriously, 10$... No way can it cost that much to make one teeny weeny bottle of (very very beautiful) nail polish. Why must you make me suffer O.P.I ?

The book is has the post-secret concept, only not at all anonymous and with more directions. It consists of a series of projects made by the general public, in response to directions given by two artists called Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher. I decided to post one of my favorites, #63, to help you understand better.
" Assignment #63
Make an encouraging banner.
Think of something encouraging you often tell yourself. For example: Everything will be ok. Or: Don't listen to them. Or: It'll blow over. Now make a banner, making sure to follow these instructions:
1. Draw each letter of the sentence on a large piece of colored construction paper or big squares of fabric. One letter per piece. Draw them blocky so you can cut them out.
2. Cut them out.
3. Glue each one onto a piece of construction paper or fabric that is a contrasting color.
4. Then glue the edges of all the pieces of paper or fabric together to make a banner.
5. Hang the banner in a place where you or someone else might need some encouragement, for example, across your bathroom. Or between two trees so that you and your neighbors can receive encouragement from it. Or in a gas station. "
Just a few of the results :
It is guaranteed that I will try and do all the assignments, trying to post them as I accomplish each one. In the meantime, you can check out The Oliver Family, a family who had quite an artistic mission on their hands...
p.s. here is the incredible site where you can see other people's projects and get the directions to accomplish your own

Anna Wintour exudes confidence and beauty, and reportedly served as inspiration for Miranda's character in the Devil wears Prada... She certainly does have the power and style to pull that role off !

It is safe to say that out of each outfit, we find either gray or black as the main colors. Bright colors are still present, but toned down and usually only used on one piece of clothing or accessory. Fur is also back in, on coats or as vests. The traditional over sized bag still works this season, I personally think we will never be able to go back to only carrying our necessities, but designers might beg to differ - one day !

Top 5 things to know about hair rollers
1) Do NOT use on wet hair, you won't be able to get them out
2) The Sections of hair should not be wider than the roller itself
3) don't pull the rollers out once you are done, go vertical and unwind
4) The dirtier the hair, the more it tends to respond
5) If you're using hot rollers, by the time you finish putting in your last one, you go back to the first one and take it out

If someone came up to me and asked me the definition of life, I would get pretty elaborate !! That's why I love this incredible pie chart; give the credit to Ian over at a pretty sweet blog called " I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum ", which reminds me... I must see the movie!

Carla Bruni is a woman of all talents. And when I mean talents I mean this ex-supermodel turned singer turned president's wife has more than just beauty on her side. “She’s a kind of alpha female (...) she was more like a female Don Juan.” quotes Bernard Kouchner, a French foreign minister. Carla is no cinderella, born and raised with her two siblings into a wealthy family, it seems she was meant to become a woman of importance. Wherever she goes, whatever she does, people love her. From Karl Lagerfeld to George W. Bush, she seems to be picking up admirers all across the world, her biggest admirer being Sarkosy who states : “I am happy like nev-air.”
Can't you help but being a teeny weeny bit jealous? I know I can't. I mean, it's okay to have one talent, but she has them all. Not to mention the french president, whom I know could afford a dozen of those Tiffany bracelets and Jimmy Choos we've been dreaming about... So where is our rich and powerful prince charming?

Lately I've had quite an obsession for mermaids, so when I saw a podcast on Jean Paul Gaultier's spring 2008 collection, I started reconsidering my halloween costume. Not that I'm comparing his astonishing pieces to costumes, but the amount of inspiration that we can take from his collection is suprisingly refreshing. Long beautiful hair and plunging necklines completed the mysterious and precious look in the models eyes. Wow. I loved it.
(you can find the whole show here)

I just found these beauties here for 70 percent off ! This leads to my conclusion : Ladies, please don't break your bank to buy hot shoes, just be a little patient and wait till they're on sale, you'll end up being really proud of yourself for finding such a deal.

After three weeks I'm back at home, quite relieved to be in my own bed. It's funny, I perceive myself as a world traveler yet I like nothing more than staying in bed all day on Sunday and drinking hot tea. Of course, I've already started planning Christmas (my Halloween costume has already been crafted and will be mentioned around then, since I don't think anyone else but me likes thinking of fall), It's something to look forward to and daydream about until I get there. Although surprisingly enough I am trying to live in the moment by living the last of (sniff) summer. WHY, SUMMER? WHY LEAVE SO SOON? I do like fall and winter but my lack of vitamin D gets me nowhere and when it does start to be holiday-ish, normal life takes its course and ruins it all.
Could I be more sour?

Sadly, Youtube has been giving me attitude these past few days (it's probably just me doing something stupid) but still, I wanted to post you guys a video, but instead I will have to post a link to said video;
I have fallen head over heels in love with this amazing, AMAZING movie called Amelie. It's sweet, funny, sad, heartwarming, and just plain lovely, in its own unique way.
I honestly recommend watching the subtitled version instead of the dubbed, if you aren't fluent in french, because American accents do tend to take away from the beautiful parisian atmosphere.
And for those of you who (like me) can't get enough of the beautiful accent francais, here's a link to the trailer for the original French version, "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sECzJY07oK4
P.S. Please forgive my computer retardism; I still can't link things properly, and am apparently youtube-challenged, too. I will get the hang of it soon, though, I promise. (A.K.A. As soon as Z gets back and explains everything to me hehe...)

Then Post Secret is the thing for you.
Post Secret is an ongoing community art project that anyone (even you) can be a part of. Basically, it consits of writing a secret of yours that you have never told anyone on the back of a handmade, 4-by-6-inch postcard, and mailing it to this adress;
13345 Copper Ridge Rd
Isn't that an amazing idea?
Also, Frank Warren (the creator of the project) made a website displaying a few of the many postcards he receives every week.
Here's the link: http://postsecret.blogspot.com/
There you can find apologies, hopes, regrets, fears, desires, and even silly little confessions, all from real people like you and I.
The website is updated every sunday with twenty or so new secrets.
