"The very pink of perfection." -Oliver Goldsmith

So pink is not my favorite color. Sorry Erika.

But I'm not going to discriminate when someone gives me one of these:

note to self:

when you return home late on a friday night with the sudden urge to clean, DON'T!

the madness will pass long before your sheets are done drying.

and there's no way you're gonna waste your ONE day to sleep in on an unmade bed.

"Style, substance, and just the right amount of heaving bodices."

Yesterday was my roommate Kim's birthday. Since she's now "almost thirty" (aka 24), she wasn't really interested in a big to-do, so we planned on dinner and a movie at the Gateway. Over an "authentic" Chinese dinner (Panda Express w/ chopsticks), I gave her her present:

Apparently it's "the living end" (and with a review like the one I've quoted above, how could it be otherwise?)

So we canned Leatherheads and watched it instead. The whole thing (four hours). With chocolate on the side.

Now I am tired. But satiated.

And I recommend it.

(Although the only heaving bodice I saw was Mrs. Reed's as she death-rattled her way to kingdom come...)

So I took the surface streets to work today and stopped at a red light on 13th East in front of East High (Go Wildcats!). I watched a group of students through my windshield as they crossed the street and one girl in particular caught my eye. Just as the light changed, I realized that what had caught my attention was her outfit. I owned the exact same one.

In like 1993.

I spent the rest of my commute kicking myself for burning those "classic" pieces from my awkwarder pre-adolescence.

I could have made some serious money.
