not so super model pt. 2


Pt.1 : I blamed it on a 5’11 Dutch model but to be honest, it was his fault for liking Dutch models in the first place. She was glossy and gorgeous and every time I saw one of those ads I’d have to deal with it……… We’ve all known chics like that – Haylie Duff’s

not so super model


I blamed it on a 5’11 Dutch model but to be honest, it was his fault for liking Dutch models in the first place. She was glossy and gorgeous and every time I saw one of those ads I’d have to deal with it. A billboard sized it with slim hips and thighs and an

i see dead people….


Nov 05 It was four in the morning when she woke me. “They’re there. They wont go away. They’re so mournful and sad.” Turns out two Edwardian chics were standing in the corner of her room. Crying alot. She could feel their pain. It was killing her. I asked if she was on crack and

summer after all


The lunch crowd are lazying around the library. On the steps. Beneath the portico. By the tram. They’re sucking down iced lollies in Exchange Square and £8 cocktails up and down Deansgate. Diners drink and don’t eat under umbrellas and open sky. I want sun blushed tomatoes. Crusty bread. Balsamic and olive oil to dip

straight up and dirty by stephanie klein


Klein writes in ‘girlfriends around the table’ relatable.

“I am thin. Like a piece of string.” Chris would say the words and I’d nod like a madwoman and look at others to agree. Sometimes they would – because she was smart and hot and the homecoming queen. Sometimes they’d just shake their heads and not understand. We wrote SNL skits in our spare

nostalgia


Filed away under ‘Princeton’ and ‘Pink Shag Carpet’ are the following: Chris, Earl and me. A two story brick and a gas main. Random annoyances, foreign athletes, and the odd mom ….or two. ICQ, academia and romantic pursuits. Wine by the gallon, midnight sausage runs and Victoria’s Secret. Shared wardrobes, spats, and fourth year finals.

Man. Wife. Boy. The Jenkins family lived on top of Toler Mountain. Eight miles by road. We managed it in two by climbing straight up and over. Mr Jenkins was a Holy Roller who brought the message, and a good bit more, every Sunday down at a little church in Buttermilk Junction. Mrs Jenkins made

Drawing Characters: 28 Nov 05 I’m drawing characters at the moment. Another little procrastination trick I’ve learned. I have several hundred to choose from. For years I’ve been in the habit of people watching. I carry my notebook everywhere. Sketch what I see. With words instead of lines. The man who wears the dirty Octoberfest

Steph is gorgeous. That’s the first thing you notice. It’s why everyone’s staring. She doesn’t know it. Doesn’t understand how a crowd can get so caught up in just the look of her. It’s part of her charm. Part of her freshness. Part of that something that just makes you want to stare and wish
