5 am

Am I delirious or are there really 25 turkeys parked next to my car?

well color me impressed

Most lost pet posters make it almost impossible to read and retain information. This person knows what they are doing. Great large photo with easy to read information. I think we have a designer on our hands. Also, I hope the dog is found.

my secret passions

It might surprise you, blog readers, but I'm secretly really into fashion. Mostly the totally ridiculous, over the top haute couture kind of stuff. I'm even taking a fashion photography class right now.
I want to make bucketfuls of money only because I long to wear the late great Alexander McQueen's gowns.

Check out images from yesterdays Dior couture show.By way of John Galliano. Fabulous.

I'm reading about Aztec art. It is some amazing stuff. Most of it was destroyed by the Spaniards. They had very elaborate gold and silver work that Spaniards melted down to make dumb stuff like coins.

Albrecht Durer said of the objects, "I have never seen in all my days that which so rejoiced my heart."

A rare saved page from the Codex Borgia
Coatlicue-The Goddess of Earth and Death.
She has a skirt made of serpents and jets of blood. She wears a necklace of amputated hands and hearts.
The myth goes that when Coatlicue was attacked and her head was servered off, her unborn child, Huitzilopochtli, rose from her severed trunk fully grown and armed.
Pretty badass stuff.

Coatlicue reminded me of this piece by Alexander McQueen.

Ate at Cafeteria 15L, the presence of which has always annoyed me for no reason. I got to spend some time with some cousins I never get to see. I was surprised with a delicious homemade tasting BBQ pulled pork sandwich.

found objects

I stumbled upon a sign thinking it was an abandoned sign asking for money, but this is what it said
If a homeless person was holding this sign I think I would give them money.

I don't think it is a good idea to have the Lost number on your car because it feels like you are really tempting fate.
I was loving this old school packaging.

back to school treat

My back to school cocktail
And Scotch eggs- a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage coated in bread crumbs and then deep fried.
I've always known I would love Scotch eggs, and boy was I right. It's like a whole breakfast plate wrapped into one. Delicious

Back to school. My least favorite thing might be the stalking predators as I walk to my car after class. You'll get a spot when you get one! Stop harassing people. Like I can even find my car in the first place.

As a kid, I always wanted a trapper keeper but never got one. Now my dreams are fulfilled.And I look like a big dork.

Watched Sofia Coppola's new film Somewhere. She recently said, “I try to go with what I’m interested in and not think too much about it. There are enough ways of talking yourself out of doing something.”
I'm pretty crazy about her work.

Speaking of crazy, I went to grocery outlet and got the craziest things I could find to snack on.
Despite Gabe continuously telling me that it is alive, the Asian Pear and Ginger Kombucha is the only thing I would get again.
