Prunes and Prism

RULES FOR YOUNG LADIES: Some arch advice on snagging a husband. Exercising the mouth into a pretty shape through repetition of certain words seems to have been an indoor sport for young nineteenth-century girls; in Little Dorrit, Charles Dickens' overly bred girl repeats, "papa, potatoes, poultry, prunes and prism."

Damn you and your perfect skin. And no, I will never get over that. Also those sunglasses are FABULOUS.

Aw, thanks, y'all!

Mama, the one who used to wring my jaws, loves seagulls and draws them on her letters.

And those sunglasses broke two days later. But I replaced them with some Isaac Mizrahi ones from the Napa Target. Check it out! They'll probably be even better on somebody who doesn't have a Sputnik-size head like mine (and I say this not to be self-deprecating -- it's just real, real big).

What I meant to say above is that the Target glasses look just like the ones I have on in the picture (which I got off eBay) and so can be easily had. Just a little retail enabling.
