I want a copy of The Alchemist
in Spanish so much it's crazy. I know I probably would have tons of trouble getting through it even though I've read the English version twice, but my goal is to understand as much of El alquimista
as I can without cheating. If anyone on my flist has suggestions of other Coelho books, let me know. I'm dying to see the outcome of The Experimental Witch Project, but I should probably read The Witch of Portobello
first. Reading Coelho's bio has kicked off an obsession with his work.
I found that there are lots of pretties here
. I also love hollow_art
. Icons are wonderful and I wish I had space for more. Whatever, that's why I have IJ.
I mentioned fashion blogs yesterday. It got me thinking about them so I went on Google and managed to find one (http://www.fashiontoast.com/
) that I could just stare at and enjoy the pictures. Weird. I think it's the fun red shoes and non-clothes shots (crushed yogurt cup, scenery). If I had one it would probably end up being me making fun of clothes like what I did at Gallery Hop recently until they got mad at us for taking pictures in the store. It was worth it for the pictures of metallic stretch pants and me dressed up in neon green bike shorts over jeans with a badly buttoned neon orange thermal. I want to go back and take more pictures o my friends and me playing dress-up.
I am so out of babysitting shape thanks to a month of no work. I was sitting last night for three little girls and woke up sore. Carrying kids up and down stairs can be a real workout when you haven't done it recently.
