Things I learned last night

April 4, 2003

01. it’s fashion week. the term “fashionably late” never made so much sense.

02. some women can wear birdhouses as hats and look perfectly normal.

03. some men can wear pressed pink oxford shirts and look like psycho killers.

04. my world’s walls are closing in on me and there is nowhere to hide. as such, you will inevitably run into someone (who knows someone) you know.

05. here in LA, flashing the peace sign is an acceptable way of saying hello. so is the head nod.

06. laura owen’s artwork is how i want to be: daring and subtle and bold and delicate all at the same time.

07. i have become a lightweight and that is, perhaps, not a bad thing at all.

08. i still meet amazing people all the time.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
