Passing Fancies ~ April 2019


Reading: George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo

Audio: Finally getting into St. Vincent, a decade or so after everyone else

Video:  The final season of Game of Thrones

Art: Learning a little bit about Garry Winogrand lately

Eats & Treats:  Girl Scout Cookies purchased from a friend’s niece

Drink: Had my first cold brew of the year a few days ago!

Garb: Textured black stockings (sheer mesh, polka dot) paired with a full, flowy black cotton dress from Uniqlo

Beauty Products: NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer ($6) and Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha ($4), mixed with various items from NARS. My taste for low-end and high-end makeup, with little in-between ground, continues.

Pleasure: The springtime landscape of our local parks and gardens

Plan: A day or two out of town for our anniversary

  1. I too had the same delayed appreciation for St. Vincent. If you haven’t already, check out her acoustic performance on the Tiny Desk concert series: listening to her unplugged, I had an increased appreciation for her voice. Also, anyone who can make Girl Scout cookies last to early spring is a person of impressively strong resolve!
