I once read an article in Elle Magazine titled "I know what boys like."
I loved how she talks about the different books of "guy lit" and the differences in male authors vs. women writers.
..."I've had many great, gripping experiences reading male writers who, like JD Salinger, put men down on the page with a kind of real, raw, naked specificity that, whether in fiction or non-, makes them multidimensional and--excitingly---intimately available..."
I love that!
I've always had a fixation with Lolita-esque plot lines...and she spoke about a book called "The Corrections."
..."Seducing his boss's boss's boss's daughter...he artfully employs every inch of his red-and-blue mug---bashfully looking away from Denise to guilt her about her relative advantages in life, lowering his lids languorously when she starts to come around, and bowing his enormous head in stage solemnity when she finally undresses. The seduction makes my hair stand on end each time I read it."
She ends it by thanking so many men (writers) who "have opened my eyes to male inner lives."
Interesting concept really.
i may have to "curl up" next to Holden. ;)

My brother Marco would go out with his friends when we lived in abilene (tx) and come home late so I'd have to sneak and open the door for him, even though I had to wake up early for elementary school. But! He did let me sleep in his room one night when I couldn't sleep- 'Under the Bridge' was on MTV and to this day when I hear that song, I think of him.
My brother Marco always gives us high tech presents, though baby maddie is his fave.
My brother Marco told us the zeros on his report cards were for 'outstanding'.
Growing up he had a rat tail and dyed the top of his hair brown/blonde. He's only dated 2 blondes I remember, one worked at an ice cream place in Germany and so he'd bring us with him sometimes.
My brother Marco has always loved Mariah Carey and took me, Marianne, and Maddie to see 'Cool World' and 'Clueless' at the theatre.
My brother Marco would get in fights with our older brother Chet and lock himself in his room. Me and my sisters would put our baby pics underneath the door, so he wouldn't 'forget us.'
I love my brother Marco.
i love it. ha. I can make myself look better with effects. lol
you know people like that? who take a pretty picture? ha. it takes me like 20 to get one good one. :)
i still want a holga camera for Christmas. My little sis says, photo shop works just as good. lol

Didn't I tell you joanna has the scoop on ALL things cool?! :)
a completely funny take on relationships. Everything from "I love you, but you talk to strangers" (totally me!!!) to the more serious, "I love you, but you don't believe in God." (deal breaker, btw!)she asked us to share how we'd finish that sentence. :) this is what i shared:
She's my twinkie. My Marz. My soul mate.
This weekend we were talking about how we are always helping out.
How we feel bad saying no to anyone who needs our help, even if it means less sleep/canceling plans or events - (like on a day where we aren't doing anything but want to veg and watch a movie)/ or loaning money... even when i barely have enough to afford me. :)
the other night we were talking about who raised us like that? our Momma never had to work so... and not that my dad isn't hard working because he totally is! but sometimes he even tells us we need to take a break cos we work ourselves so much.
i told Marianne we raised each other that way.
It sounds cheesy :) but we totally agreed to that. She said it's because we're twins, we've always looked out for the other, so we think like that.
Twinkie, i don't mind raising you for the next 24 years!!!
* ps. i swear our momma put us in pig tails til we were in 5th grade.

our office is working on a promo for spaying/neutering pets and yesterday, my boss was doing a walk & talk at the local animal shelter. These babies were so happy to see someone and then it hits you... after 3 days of not being claimed? they're put down. If they have tags? they wait 5 days.
OMG, seriously?!!?!? There were some pups who stayed in the back and just looked at you with their sad eyes... just very still. Like they knew they were going to be killed that day or the next. Just waiting.
I thought of lola. How can you not love sweet animals who show you nothing but unconditional love? I had to ask my boss to stop the raw video cos i was crying. It's truly awful.
you know those National commercials on adopting a pet? and they show abused dogs? C covers my eyes.
Sad. Sad. SAD.
SMITTEN's joanna has the scoop on EVERYTHING! :) I just sent all my best girls/seesters a link to one of her posts today to wish them a "HAPPY" Friday.

Me on my way to a co-worker's jewelry party earlier this evening.
Only one who came who didn't really know anyone else and was under probably... 35. :)
A ton of fun, cos a.) i love girl time and b.) i love to mingle!
I also got to know ladies i work with who are in different departments.
Not to mention i get to look forward to when my new jewelry comes in! yay!!!
lover, i only spent $100... not bad!
i even got the fabulous fad (i think!) the "spoon ring."
ha! love it
Especially love and time travel.
"I want to remember us... just as we are now."
A post today was about chatty girlfriends.
i have a HORRIBLE habit of "stealing the conversation."
ugh it's awful cos i don't realize i do it! :) I'm not chatty-annoying... my problem is, it just reminds me of something that happened to me or i'm afraid i'll forget it and before you know it, it's out of my mouth. lol
C laughs when i do it, but *i* personally feel bad. :) lol
i'm always full of questions too... which i blame it as the reporter in me.
Check out this Smitten... let's see who the Eves are! *wink.
New album by the GORGEOUS First Lady of France, Carla Bruni.
I watched her last night as a guest on David Letterman (on a sidenote? man, I'm SO going to miss "great moments in Presidential speeches") and was just blown away by her soft-spoken manner, beauty, and grace.
How is it fair that someone can be THAT beautiful, and talented as well? it's not!!! lol
But both she is. You can listen to her album online.
I love her lyrics, like this one:
Promise me no promises,
So will I not promise you:
Keep we both our liberties,
Never false and never true:
Free to come as free to go:
For I cannot know your past,
And of mine what can you know?
You, so warm, may once have been
Warmer towards another one:
I, so cold, may once have seen
Sunlight, once have felt the sun
classic beauties!!!! I think I will frame these as well for the closet my lover is making me.

I fell off my diet. I fell off far away from it.
So far, my stomach hurts.
But in the moment? It felt good. I am paying for it now.... but doesn't that go for a lot of things in life???
and so I PROMISE myself to be good tomorrow.
Hello again slim fast.
you could have been my first kiss... and my last kiss.
my best friend always.
It was the first movie my parents saw together at the drive-in. My dad's first big gift to my mom was a jewelry box that played the piano solo from the movie.
She still has it.
In High School, I read the book [by Erich Segal] and still believe the opening of the novel is some of the best sentences ever penned by an author.
I made one for lover & i. "love you, love me" it says on the front.

I saw them in Dallas a couple of years ago and LOVED every single second of the concert. It was before me and the boy were dating, so I'm glad to finally get to take him, so we can experience it together! I always said I wished I had known him when I went the first time round cos it was a pretty "low" time in my life.
Sometimes a girl does get what she wishes for... sigh.
I'm also excited just to get away.
The day didn't start out so well, (I know right? HAPPY FRIDAY!) i think i need these sheets to remind myself ;)
have a great weekend lovies!!!! xo
and of course, i'd love to hear your plans.*pic found on this gorgeous blog.

I love you dear brother!!!
my papa says that when Marco was little, he always wanted to fly in a "ca-dopter"... what little Marco called helicopters. :) Look at you brother, you're doing it now!!! xo
Me and C are those 'annoying pet people' who have to make sure we take her out and play with her, before we can meet you for that drink/dinner/etc. :) it drives her auntie marianne nuts! :) lol
today i picked her up from her cute spa, and couldn't believe they sell this:
PET HEAD for dogs, from the line of Bed Head products!!!
I HAD to buy a bottle of product for her.
I told you, we're one of those 'annoying pet people.'
I turned down an apple fritter from Blake this morning. I turned down even half of it, when he insisted i taste how delish it was.
Check out Kate Winslet on the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair...
HELLO GORGEOUS!wish me luck lovies!!!!
