Oh hell yes!!! I confess that I took a break from the blogs for three weeks, shortly after (but not because of) the previous post. I am so happy for you, can't wait to hear how you'll do it up! Hearty congratulations to you and the Faux!! xx E

The Armenians (or Ah-menians, as my in-laws say) do the egg-tapping too! I've never won, unfortunately. Lovely arrangement, P.

Will you show us pictures of yours? I didn't bother to click on the link because I've got nowhere for a garden, but I do like the idea of envying yours through the internets.

Oh the bottom left. That wallpaper! I a guessing the parrot is named Boris and the child, Hugo. He has a pet ferret named Albert. Mixing patterns, old with new... yes, yes. I am also realizing more than ever that for the me the photos I love most have a touch of black in them. This is why Gourmet appeals so much, lately. Also, related to our previous discussion: fizzy lifting drinks! They trump the lot, and popped into my head when I woke up the next day. I hope your outlook has improved. xo E

A dog, a frog, a log. A noodle, a poodle, a doodle. I don't have the chops. I leave it to Bob and Bill Murray.

Off the top of my head: a pogo stick, buffalo wings, a terrarium, Avignon, wine soup.

I have to plead ignorance on Waterloo, unfortunately. But if you can get your hands on a ham and gruyere croissant, grilled, your outlook might just improve. That and unplugging. And Eddie Izzard.

If I may suggest something, and not knowing but suspecting that deep down you are overwhelmed: turn off your cell phone (or put it on silent), don't check your email unless you have to, treat yourself to a delicious breakfast, and walk to work. If that doesn't work, take everything that you normally do and turn it upside down. I think you'll feel good by noon.

Those teeth! The ravishing girls always have the great lips and sparkly chompers. I bet she's not even wearing makeup! If only.

A good choice, especially when weighed against that beef jerky. Brings to mind a similarly difficult choice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alDReHpQFik So jealous you're headed over there -- double your sausage in pastry intake on my behalf! I have dreams of Borough Market.

Oh woops you might be wondering about that law school, my brain farted for a second and didn't connect for you. It's this ochre yellow saltbox (again, by my memory) set back from the street outside of town. By which I mean it's all super-bucolic but not saccharine.

If (or when) you have a chance, go to White Flower Farm in person. It's amazing, as I remember it. My family had a house up in Kent and my mom would take me with her to buy plants for her garden. Litchfield is beautiful (first law school in the country, if I am remembering?) and there is so much to love up there. Do it. Soon. With Fauxhawk. Go, go!

I think I'd join an "of the month" club. The gift that keeps on giving. Being a member myself, I can confidently recommend this one: http://www.jerky-of-the-month.com/catalog/default.php (Go for the brush. They're totally worth it.)
