Every breath they take

May 29, 2003

i have a mad, mad crush on the sultry, sexy, exhales of the members of imperial teen— and when i say “exhales” i don't mean singing. i mean, quite literally, the breath they let out. like fire. they are far more dreamy than any “ooh” or “ahh” or “la la la”s that a band might […]


Taste of summer

May 28, 2003

fresh mozzarella and d’anjou pears. sparkling lemonade. iced coffee. cookies & cream ice cream. cherry tomatoes. olives. strawberry pie. yum.


Summer Sun

May 23, 2003

it seemed only fitting that i pick up yo la tengo's summer sun before the long weekend. i'd heard it was shimmery and sunshiney, which is how i've felt now that summer is just around the corner. i have only given it one full listen, but i already feel like i am getting some color […]


Bestest friends forever

May 22, 2003

What I did for love

What I did over the weekend

May 8, 2003

yesterday, ryan asked me, “are you going to write about your trip?” immediately, and without thinking, i said, no. i tried to explain to him that the trip was less about sight-seeing and more about time with my family and friends, less about documentation and more about experience. with all the blasts from my past […]


  • 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.
