drinking too much limoncello




last night, i hosted a drink & draw session at my house, inviting some of my favorite creative women. there was quite some consumption of homemade limoncello (highly recommended, tho' perhaps not in the quantity we drank). there was much laughter and lots of good food (think fois gras topped with roasted grapes). we were also celebrating my new job. a good time was had by all, but i'll admit i was in low gear today. but it was totally worth it. i'd do it again in a heartbeat. the only bad thing was that it ended too soon.

husband's quote of the day:
"there are too few things on pinterest where they have taken the picture that's in my head and then built it."

he's a clever one, that boy.

sometimes i wish i'd been an archaeologist.
science is awesome.
they have sequenced a neanderthal genome.
turns out they were pretty inbred.

one to ponder: 
does our food still have a story?

so many beautiful discoveries to be made via humans of new york
like the quiet, deep work of m benjamin herndon.

I dunno, every time I look at humans of NY I feel a kind of sadness. Fantasy lives, other people are blamed for whatever, there's poverty, struggle, illness and rationalizations. Not exactly a practical or steady bunch.

Wish I was closer. I hope you took photos and will post the drawing bit, but if you didn't you'll have to do it all over again. :) Want to know all about the new job.
