PASS THE POPCORN PLEASE


Earlier this week I went to go see Alice in Wonderland in 3D and it was ah-mazing!!! I hadn't seen a 3D movie since Captain EO forever ago and boy has technology changed since then. I only want to watch movies in 3D now.

I simply love the idea of a short dress on the big day. There is something so unexpected, understated, and relaxed about these short numbers and I love the idea, especially with some colored shoes.

As much as I love it here in New York my heart will always belong to California where I grew up on the sunny streets of Newport Beach. When I came across this postcard from Paper Pastries I just melted and I ordered them immediately with a heart over Orange County. I'm planning on framing it and hanging it in my bedroom.

THE GYMNAST


I was out with a group of friends for dinner and a friend of a friend joined us who I will call the Gymnast. He came in all short and stout and entertained us with stories about his job as a stenographer and the vast difference between what he does in the courts vs. doing closed caption work. Very interesting stuff, but his new found love of gymnastics is what I was really interested in. I couldn't stop asking questions about why he got into it, and where does one carry out these wild gymnastics fantasies. Well, at the end of dinner he asked me out and how could I resist a dinner alone with a real live stenographer/gymnist! He took me to Fig and Olive, which was delicious, and as soon as we sat down I started with the questions. I wanted to know if he wore a leotard and if so what color, and if his class consisted of 12 year old girls or other "straight" men who have a fondness for tumbling? With every answer he reminded me that he wasn't gay. I looked him straight in the eyes and told him that being gay is ok, and people will respect him more if he just comes out. He laughed thinking I was joking (I was not). I couldn't be the only one to enjoy the gymnastics stories so my friend came to meet up with us and we all went to a party the Gymnast's friend was having in the East Village. On the way there he told us that people thought his friend was gay, but he had a girlfriend so he clearly was straight. You'd think that for someone who was so "straight" he would stop talking about how gay he is not, but oh no not the Gymnast. He went on to tell us that he thinks that when straight guys "experiment" it doesn't mean they are gay and his friend, with a girlfriend, thinks so too. I at this point could not take anymore gay talk with a guy I was on a date with and I called it quits.

Now I'm sure you have one burning question after reading this story and.... Yes, he did wear a leotard to gymnastics class and he has two, a black one and a light blue one. I'm sure the other guys in the class who joined to meet guys to "experiment with in a straight way" loved the light blue one best.

NOT SO CRYSTAL LIGHT

I'm a fan of minatures so when I stumbled upon Carly Waito's little crystal paintings I fell head over heals in love! The amazingly realistic quality in these crystal paintings is absolutely gorgeous. Check out her blog here.
