Catching a bad case of glitter from Serge Gainsbourg.

Alex (to me): I can spell Baby Beethoven.
Me (to Alex): Really? Will you spell it out loud for me?
Alex (to me): Yes. B-A-B-Y B-E-E-T-H-O-V-E-N.
Me (to Alex): Wow, you’re brilliant!
Vicki (proudly, to me): That’s what his teacher said about him last week when he wrote it out in class.
Alex (to no one in particular): I’m going to have to pass gas now.
Vicki (to me): Can you spell I-D-I-O-T S-A-V-A-N-T?
Me (to Vicki): E-X-A-C-T-L-Y.

Quote of the day, from Demetri Martin:
The thing about glitter is, if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Because glitter doesn’t go away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Listening to: Serge Gainsbourg (I love his “come on” French talk-over style of singing).
Reading: Run by Ann Patchett.
Eating: Kababs with Kansas Slim tonight.

Hey, is there still glitter from Liz's dress at ETW's?

La_Petit_Rouge said...

Yes, as a matter of fact, there is still Liz glitter over at Newton Place. It can't be cured.

@Chris, those passive aggresive signs slay me everytime.
@LBC Yes, the co,mbo of that crazy slipcover and glitter is epic.
@La_Petit_Rouge I think it should be mandatory- everyone should announce any impending cheese cutting. Can you imagine elevators and restaurants and boardrooms
