Not In Kansas Anymore...

Click your heels, and see if home is where you hang your hat, or somewhere else inside yourself as this simple, postmodern girl takes on L.A.

Not been blogging lately, as there hasn't been much going on.....if I had a webcam, all you would see would be a lot of me sleeping and hanging around in my bathrobe. I do go out occasionally, in spurts, and then I come home tired. If I do something the whole day, I have to take the next day off completely, because I get tired.

Needless to say, I'm getting plenty of reading done and watching alot of movies. Lots of little home improvement projects. I cleaned out the hall closet, for example. It's really amazing what you can commit to if you allow yourself permission to stop when you're tired. People say you'll never finish, but you do. Just slower and your tolerance for leaving it unfinished for a bit has to be high.

Other than that, not much, except it's award season again here. In the dearth of actual weather-related seasons, maybe that should actually BE a season in LA. We could comment on the red-carpet wear like regular people comment on foliage. I hear white it is a big color this year....
And it's been almost a year since I started this blog. I started it on Oscar night last year, if you'll recall.

With that in mind, I leave you with the best thing I've seen during awards season so far, as it sort of sums up what this blog is sort of about: Abigail Breslin, the little girl who starred in "Little Miss Sunshine", was on the red carpet at the SAG awards a couple of nights ago, and some news correspondant asked her what she had in her purse. Her answer: lip gloss and cookies. I thought it was brilliant. What more does any girl need? She's prepared for any beauty emergencies and thinking about the long, boring and potentially foodless night ahead of her, she is also prepared to make it through, squirrelling away resources in a pretty bag.
The lessons? 1.) Be prepared if you can, and 2.) don't be afraid of dessert; 3.) should something stupid come along ( say, a reporter for E!) that throws you a curveball, be brave enough to throw one back ; 4.) in all things, try to squeeze in any enjoyment of things for yourself, anywhere you can, regardless, and 5.) try to look good doing it!

I'm telling you, that kid is way ahead of the game.
