halloween bust

Posted: October 31st, 2018 | No Comments »

ok, let’s be real, this halloween was a total bust, though a fun bust. had too many school assignments to really do something (i have 15 book reviews due sunday; have done 2ish, i’m scared/not scared) (ok  v. scared), though i did volunteer for the library at their annual costume contest. i dressed up as norma rae, which was a COMPLETE DUD, mostly because no one under age 100 knows the norma rae movie, though truth be told, i couldn’t get my hair right and didn’t have all details exact (though i did have  the UNION sign, which was quite perfectly replicated, tbh) (but i couldn’t carry it as i was manning the “knock down cans” game) (was disappointed to see that boys were quite fierce at throwing the beanbags, while the girls gently tossed them; is this nature gender stuff in real life?). ANYWAY, as norma rae — i just looked like myself with some ear plugs and a union pin. BASICALLY STUPID. got home late and had zero trick or treaters, so now ross is binge-watching the deuce,  i’m slowly writing book review(s) and drinking 1.75 glasses of rosé, and making marcella hazan’s tomato sauce, and watching the shining in the background.


this video is pretty fascinating

people who drag me into that sort of place where comparison and trendiness rule the roost

i’ve been a fan of saipua for so long — somehow i even got ballroom to hire them for flowers for the 2016 gala (insane if you think about it), which was so awesome (for me), not sure if it was awesome for them. anyway i love what sarah is reaching for and i’d like to think i’m reaching for something similar in my library journey. access and beauty for all (with humanity, realness, no posturing, minimum of bullshit).

some beautiful moments in her latest posts — from here and here:

Aspiration keeps us engaged to some extent, keeps us dreaming.

I clean my office out because in this experiment I can’t afford the distraction of clutter, watered down books, instagram, or people who drag me into that sort of place where comparison and trendiness rule the roost.
