1. Have you ever finished a book and felt lost afterwards? I have six books awaiting my reading. Which to choose? Maybe I just want to sit with the other (finished) one for a little while longer?
2. What's the point of wearing footies with your heels? Either suck it up and wear the nylons, or don't wear anything at all. That's my feeling, alright. That little trace of nylon skimming the rim of your shoes is most unappealing. Cute shoes, too. Why did you go and ruin a good thing?
3. I've been thinking a lot about money and how I need more of it. I have already confided in my closest friends - and now, here, to you, dear Internet - that I believe in my past life I was a noble. I think I had nice, pretty things and was surrounded by luxury. I have always had an overly strong appreciation for all things clean and new. However, I have accepted that in this life, I might not lead the life of the noble I believe myself to be (at heart). Yet, I would still like to come as close as possible to living in comfort as I can. While discussing the issue with a close friend (who dresses well) for several hours, we left her house this evening in the nice (leather-interiored) car of her boyfriend. Driving through the artistically-lit streets of Paris in his car, with Serge Gainsbourg as the background, my urge to be loaded down with cash became an almost physically tangible feeling. Oooo... to not have to compare the prices of the different types of tomatoes! How I would love to no longer add water to my dish soap! The Boy and I have had an informal yet monumental discussion concerning our finances, and we have stumbled upon the unspoken agreement that we will now drink our semi-daily (does that mean every-other-day?) coffee at the bar. Sitting at the table, it costs twice the price, and we just can't afford to continue throwing a precious 2,30 euros two or three times per week. I have, in fact, become the person I could never understand: the one for whom every euro counts. This is a tough life, for a noble. I have never been up such a shitty financial creek as I am right now, and I find myself hoping that my thread, needles, and generally positive outlook will get us through this rough patch that could last anywhere from a year to an eternity. Wish us luck.
