I’m not admitting to anything, but it may have transpired that around my 120th straight hour of solo twin wrangling, when I started to feel overwhelmed and isolated on my little island, I may have turned to an old friend, Julie Andrews, for a bit of guidance. Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite things….
Paul Newman in his early twenties……Hot Hot Hot. Joanne Woodward and Orson Welles are fab too.
Green tea + Lychee + Ginsing = Delicious
Gosh I love Edna St. Vincent Millay. Favorite Poet. Lulu’s middle name is Millay, after her. Love all her poems, but she’s most famous for a few lines out of First Fig:
- My candle burns at both ends;
- It will not last the night;
- But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends–
- It gives a lovely light!
God bless vacuuming robots
God bless Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. His version of “I Put a Spell on You” is sublime. And insane. Lately I’ve been groovin out to “He wears a red bandanna, plays a cool piano, in a honky tonk down in Mexico…”
Love converse. Those aren’t mine though, fyi. I own one pair, and Jungledad owns one pair. No, they are not the same color. We’re not that lame.
With a little chinese cabbage, so very very yummy.
This is a cupcake of a book. A big sweet hug. Great recipes, great characters, great advice.
