instead i got the barbie penthouse with the elevator - which doubled as a jet propelled rocket for barbie whenever playing with my brother. egads.
saw some pics of barbies over the years and a flood of memories came back. all nice ones. i remember my very first barbie. yeah, it was still the disco era. she was so shiny! and flammable!
after that i'm not sure of the order. but, i definitely remember having this pink barbie. it's weird how i remember parts of her like the stole and how it felt. the polka dots...:
and day to night barbie was all about her career and going out seamlessly. this jacket was velvet!:
crystal barbie! her dress and stole were probably my favorite, everrr. the more barbie wore it the more crinkly it got and all these new patterns of irridescence would form. putting her near christmas lights put me in a stupor...it was bliss. and her jewelry ahh. i wonder what this would translate to on a real girl...hmm:i think i had this barbie...i definitely had this outfit which happens sometimes when you play with other friends barbies. you suddenly acquire the top half of an ensemble and accessories. this was also velvet - what the hell, barbie...
i used what i had to fill out barbie's world and my barbies and her friends (and sometimes ken, her loving silent but strong husband) would drive around in rainbow bright's car. hey, they fit, who cares...
i'm sure i could go on forever about this but...i'll save it for some other time.

i was bored today as soon as i got to work (quel surprise) so i drew my sweater in paintbrush. in a way also a homage to the days when paintbrush was the only way being pre-photoshop.
i also have a photo of my cozy outfit today: paint splatted squin jeans a t-shirt as thin as tissue under my fairisle sweater. it's one of the few things i still have since highschool. and being that i moved 8 million times and lost/discarded/donated mad clothes in that time it's a feat to still have something i owned in the days when kurt cobain was still alive.
way to be awesome, fairisle sweater i bought in a thriftstore in levittown, pa, way to be. awesome.

this is the first picture i got by googling, "pretty taxes".
doing my taxes only takes a few minutes, yet it's the waiting until all the w-2 forms are in before i can print out my form, double check the address to send it off and forget about. i think i only have two w-2 forms this year not counting the illustriously unfruitful school tax forms i get. one day i will get down to one w-2 form...one day. by then i also want an accountant. someone trustworthy like a guy named, Larry or something...

i've lived here for years and only just now gone to the natural history museum. all i was interested in were the sea creatures.
i'm pretty sure i have a phobia about being near whales.
forgot my camera so i had to take a bunch of mobile ones that i'm not into uploading right now. bluetooth is acting up...
i sketched this little guy while there earlier this week:
today i went through part one of two, of getting my tooth fixed. afterwards i had nowhere to be and all my errands pretty much were taken care of via the phone. sooooo what better place to waste some time in than Strand. i went straight to the art books (tunnel vision - a blessing and a curse); i pretty much looked at EVERY page of the vice photobook (i want it so hard). and i bought this book on photography today, "the photograph as contemporary art". i don't like to spend money on any book i am not sure i'm going to like buuuut i saw a few pages:
mostly it's like a survey of a lot of photogs i like:
just to name a few...
if i had to pick a medium...a camera would be it. otherwise every thing i find is a medium. yes, models with very little creative inhibitions and a sense of adventure are welcome...

totally impractical on a daily basis yet creative and ideal for those times when you host a party at your loft and need to not be upstaged by the trapeze artist hanging from your pipes....
taxidermy done right. i ♥ this brooch.
these are all found here though she is based in Australia.
I heart the Silence + Noise band jacket at Urban Outfitters better though...
