My (cold) life in cartoons.

One of the reasons I am moving the soonest I can is because of the winters of where I live now. I've grown up in tropical/warm areas all my life until I was a teenager, when dearest mother packed us off to this Siberia-meets-Greenland refrigerator where she could enjoy great medical insurance, fringe benefits, and a respectable career. So I can't blame her... but I can blame global warming. Cheers for those polar bears! Anyway, no school tomorrow due to the ungodly chill (negative four is the high, -14 the low), which means the school will cut our spring break short. I have nothing to say to that, but I can make Mumsy write a convenient little sick note. *sniff*

Knowing that I wouldn't be able concentrate on anything except the exciting New York shows happening this week, I gave up on productivity; instead, trying to give up counting down the Marc Jacobs show, I read a bunch of Natalie Dee cartoons.
Then I stumbled upon this little jocular poke at Natalie's brain, and I thought how similar it was to my own thoughts!! Only a few things didn't match up, such as I don't really like Wu Tang Clan, and the area with Marc Jacobs is probably half of my cerebral mass. LAUGHOUTLOUD.Then I decided to spend the rest of my weekend online shopping. Because I have an unnatural attachment to Crate&Barrel, I looked at kettles and linens for two hours. Did you know that a china bowl costs $42.95? But at least my money will be going to a deserving child laboring in a sweatshop in China. Or maybe it will be distributed to all forty of them.
I'm thinking of wearing my new black coat with black pants, so that I have a whole Sylvia Plath suicidal thing going on. Without, you know, the whole death part.

Oh my silly Keychain. I do hope that I can share in your fortune of no school tommorow. However, I did agree to run around one of the dorms without my shirt if it happens...

I wish we had no school when it gets to cold. I remember when I was 16 and is -30 degrees (C) outside and we weren't allowed to wear shoes inside. That's evil.

We do have Grey's Anatomy in Sweden as well as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Prison Break, The O.C, Jay Leno, well, I guess we have almost everything worth seeing... :)

I meant to say a couple of days ago, but forgot, thanks so much for the mention in your last post!

It really brightened my day, and I was flattered to know that you think DiscothequeConfusion is "worth a skim"!

Sure, I'd love to link. I’m a little surprised I haven't already!

Um, I know that Takara's on State has some pretty good sushi...but if you are looking for specifically Chinese cuisine...I do not know.
Is sushi Chinese?

I finally gave myself the time to give this post a proper read, and found it most enjoyable!

The balenciaga coat? lucky!

Where do you live? I thought we were in a posistion to moan about all the dirty sleety excuse for snow in england at the moment, but -14 pretty much tops it.

Unless that was a joke!...

wow, I want to recreate one of those brain things for myself. haha. I'm such a loser, I find compiling lists so fun.

Happy weekend.
I just bought myself the new issue of NYLON and a rime out guide to New York, so mine will be one of much redaing!

Who cares if I get sexy Asian boarding school boys. You get Balenciaga! That's totally unfair.

discothequechic said...

haha.

You know what you said about Topshop?

I feel exactly the same about Target! I could really do with some cheap Luella, Proenza Schouler and co!
