life is complicated

Posted: December 24th, 2019 | No Comments »

being with another human who moves through the world completely differently than you — also complicated. does it get easier or does it stay hard. does one person just have to soften up? (i wanted to write “give in,” but that explains my whole problem.) do both people soften? how does it work. i want to be a better, easier person but it seems like i’m always butting up against my brittle self. how to break that self?

Unlike peers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Lagerfeld never suffered nervous breakdowns about his art. His career-long sleight of hand was working very hard while wanting everyone to believe he was hardly working. “I hate hard workers,” he once said. “Things must appear to be casual.”

from the lives they lived, fran lebowitz on toni morrison:

She loved crime. She was very interested in criminal cases. We watched the trial of the Menéndez brothers while on the phone every single day for six months. It was in L.A., so it started at noon on the East Coast. I felt very guilty watching it, because I was supposed to be writing a book, but I would say to myself, “Well, Toni does it, so I’m sure it’s fine.” Of course, that was before I knew that Toni got up at 5 in the morning, so, by noon, she had already done a full day’s work.


hot girl beauty recommendations are almost never to be trusted.

via edith zimmerman, from “skincare should be medicine for your face”:

However, a huge percentage of beauty industry profits is snake oil, products often endorsed by extremely hot women (paid spokesmodels and beauty civilians alike), who sometimes truly believe that it’s the cream or serum that’s making them hot, rather than their enviable genetics and/or healthy, wealthy lifestyles. (If you are a Gwyneth, good for you; I am more of a Dorothy Parker.) These Genetic Lottery Winners and/or Clean Living Hot Girls are the bane of normal women’s existence, always leading us down wrong paths and dead ends, even if inadvertently, as we continue our desperate search for confidence and desirability. Hot Girl beauty recommendations are almost never to be trusted.


YUM

🚨🍝 PASTA GAME-CHANGER ALERT! 🍝🚨 This is Linguine "Portofino", the Italian equivalent of ordering your enchiladas "Christmas" in New Mexico. Tomato sauce AND pesto. Add a little parmesan, mix it all together, and you've got a surprisingly harmonious taste sensation. We can't wait to make this when we're back home!
