File Under: Things I'd Like to Have in My Dream Office

It's no secret that I love magazines. I mean, who doesn't? But seriously, I can't get into reading mags on the internet. The pics never look as good, they're too small or too big, or not high enough resolution.

ANYWAY, I subscribe to a bunch of mags. Not least among them, Conde Nast's glittering jewels, Vogue, and Vanity Fair.


Me & My Whip. Yeah.

Every month, they are all over the heavy sell of the Conde Nast Store. So I finally got off my duff and checked it out. And it ROCKS!

This is my life.

Anyway, check out the Conde Nast Store for all your print, note card, and apparently golf-related needs (there's a lot of golfness on their site).

Won't Back Down

I'm such a sap this made me cry. Thanks to Brian at the The Life of BMW.

I mean, seriously, I lose things all the time

Today I just want to share one of my favorite poems, both as a permanent place to keep it, and to share it with you, my friends. Without further adieu, the great Elizabeth Bishop:

One Art
by Elizabeth Bishop

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

--Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

The Ideal Spring Dinner Party

So I'm on the twitter. But I can't figure out how to add it to my blog. Everytime I try, I hit a wall. Which is why I think I need to marry a big nerd. So he can just swoop in and fix my life (all aspects would be nice but just internet-wise is more than sufficient). ANYWAY, I was browsing through my friends and I saw this from my old pal, Martha Stewart:

A direct link to photos of the dinner party at my house

How could I resist? And the first photo was stunning. (See above)

Suffice it to say: My table has NEVER looked like that. And my next party is late-20's themed, so it still won't. But my GOD, what I could do with a staff of 150.

It's Okay to be Gay...

My homegurl Peter introduced me to this video over the weekend, and I just had to share it with my three faithful blog friends.
