Passing Fancies ~ May 2020


Reading: Still getting through Colette’s Claudine novels. Also, dipping into some coffee-table books about perfume bottles.

Audio: A Lloyd Cole “listening party” on Twitter, organized by Tim Burgess, with Mr. Cole himself! I’m definitely going to “attend” more of these.

Video: Finished Season 5 of “Schitt’s Creek” and Season 1 of “Broadchurch.” Two very different moods!

Eats & Treats: Weekly pick-ups of bread and Italian cookies from our local bakery.

Drink: Some freshly roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee from modcup.

Garb: Good thing I went to that Boden sample sale with T. back in January (?)…I’ve been wearing those three dresses over and over for video-meetings.


Beauty Products: One with Nature Rose Petal Triple Milled Mineral Soap. Method Pure Peace Body Wash. OUAI Rose Hair and Body Oil. Pretty in pink!

Pleasure: A Saturday night video “salon” with a group of local friends, including a virtual wine-tasting, a musical performance, and poetry readings. Even a pandemic can’t stop us.

Plans: Preparing to offer another video-lecture for the Brooklyn Brainery in June.
