Crickets, hills, Hole, wine, cigarettes, bialettis, John Lee Hooker, limp hair, sundresses, wisteria, sleazy dudes, dying dudes, skinned shins, virgins, green shutters, pizza pies, bicycles, white weeds, spaghetti straps:
It’s 1986! I’m in love with the bitchiest boys on the block! They’re rich! They wear white linen suits to school! The world is their ashtray!
Happy V-day. Whatever happened to hard-hearted preppies in undone pink dress shirts?
Saint Valentine in the distance! I’m pricking my fingers with rose thorns and melting chocolate cherries in the hot California sun! I’m blowing soap bubbles and eating carnation heads and painting my walls pink and charging for kisses! Pennies, people! Pucker up.
Pondering friendship. Real friends, fake friends, books about friendship, movies w/ friends, stories about cliques who hang obsessively, loving and hating each other with the obsessiveness of total obsessives! Friends who drink bellinis w/ brunch. Port after dinner. Friends who share secrets. Friends who tell lies! Books: The Secret History, A Fortunate Age, The Likeness, The Basic Eight. Movies: Metropolitan, St. Elmo’s Fire, The Last Days of Disco, The Big Chill. Will watch/read anything that combines friends w/ mansions.
Today, two vids. Can’t choose just one:

S&G Mondays. Stuck in my head:
I think I’ve re-watched this thing six billion times. Kevin with Cara, the girl from the lake! This chick lives on soft-serve ice cream and lip smackers lipgloss. She has meaningful moments with boys in cars. She cries whilst still looking soulful and pretty! Too much, I swear it.
Friend Sean and his BFF Mark made this AwesomeAmazingHilarious video. “Son of the Hulk”! I adore:
