Wednesday Gimlet: Amalgamations and Libations

Some adult-themed eye candy, and other avian and mammalian frivolities, for sustenance and amusement and gentle encouragement to survive the week to Friday afternoon; I made this Tanqueray gin gimlet for myself yesterday evening, before unwinding with a subdued and poetic French romance film, to enjoy after another long haul in front of my laptop preparing material for a client teleconference this afternoon. As usual, though often unrecognized, my hard work paid off; the client team is ecstatic, and I can flee the region and the final desperate and pleading piles of melting snow, for Providence, and my weekend sojourn with Rebecca.

Another one of the filmmakers great, nonchalant pieces; this one in black and white reminds me a bit of a more geometric Beardsley, or perhaps an Egan. Perhaps some cross pollination between the two and Mondrian. I love these sketches, and I love watching his hands and markers work, tranquilly, with utter confidence and ease.

This wind-up chick hops across flat surfaces; cheap and glorious fun, uncovered from the grocery store check-out.

If you have fallen on desperate times, and have not a lime or lemon peel or one single maraschino cherry with which to garnish a cocktail, these plastic monkey figurines work wonders in a pinch.

  2. Hi. I'm a stylist in LA and I'm totally obsessed with your blog. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I've launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it. Check out what Vanessa H was wearing when I ran into her last week and find out what her go-to fash item is. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.

    And don't forget to follow on Twitter for all the latest celebrity fashion news, from an LA stylist.

  3. I always enjoy the posts! Looking forward to many more (:The things given are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone.
