Getting Ready for Friday Night

Getting Ready for Friday Night, originally uploaded by baglady.

I went all out for our restaurant week dinner at Trattoria Aqua. The outcome was something between Shirley Temple and Miss Piggy.

In Support of My Favorite Sweater

I may never have written about him, were it not for his fashion gaffe. Nonetheless, I have to give a nod to Bolivia's President Evo Morales and his favorite sweater. The latest Time Magazine has him in four separate pictures wearing the same red, white, blue and grey horizontally striped, alpaca sweater. He met the leaders of China, the UN, Spain and South Africa in it!

I didn't find a good picture of it, but I did learn that Kentucky has a llama and alpaca association. You'll be relieved to know that they have full meeting minutes on their web site.

I spent most of high school in a green, wool Benetton sweater. By my senior year, my friends were begging me to throw it out. It was cozy, kind of like a security blanket. I should make some quilting squares out of it. That would require some skill and effort though. It wasn't like any sweater I could find online. With some digging, I should be able to find myself in a picture wearing it.

Can you believe the head of Benetton has such help-me-find-the-words press photos? Look, he's making the baglady a new green sweater!

Bearded Lady

It's not too late to enjoy Big D's Halloween costumes. It's not over until the fat lady sings:

Something else could be said about bearded circus ladies. I enjoy people who enjoy it when people laugh at them. I think I would be really depressed if I wasn't amused when people think I'm weird :P. Must be a coping mechanism I developed.

Killing Me Softly

The day I was born, the song at the top of the charts was Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly". I was really worried what it might be, given some of the frightening stuff that came out of the 70's.

"From our research the people who were most active got the most joy. It may sound tempting to relax on a beach, but if you do it for too long it stops being satisfying."
