free form friday.
this was the bathroom in the hotel the lord of the ring and i stayed in in san francisco in 2006.
how random is that?
which is the perfect introduction to "free form friday."
a collection of randomness.
so this bathroom was mirrored all around. you see the television and phone? you could live in here! the weekend we stayed there i took two extra long baths complete with wine and cheesy television. it was heaven.
y'all be happy to know i did not use the phone. and considering it's placement, eeeww.
"hi! what are you up to?"
a book i read and LOVED this week;
The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond
In this spare page-turner, Richmond (Dream of the Blue Room) draws complex tensions from the set setup of a child gone missing. Photographer Abby Mason stops on San Francisco's Ocean Beach with her fiancé Jake's six-year-old daughter, Emma, to photograph a seal pup; by the time Abby looks up, Emma has disappeared. Abby delves into the bereft missing children subculture and into the vagaries of memory. The book is beautifully paced—one feels Abby's clarity of purpose from the first page. The sure-handed denouement reflects the focus and restraint that Richmond brings to bear throughout.
music i listened to and LOVED this week;
Rust Never Sleeps by Neil Young & Crazy Horse
on vinyl. yeah, baby. nothing gets the laundry folded faster. well, except paying your youngest boybarian to do it.
something i ate and LOVED this week;
Larrupin's Swedish Mustard Dill Sauce.
mmmmm. this comes from way way northern california and is good on so many things. i had it during our yom kippur breakfast for dinner fest last night on a bagel with cream cheese, sliced tomatoes, red onions, lox, with the mustard sauce on top. it really is so good.
