Spotted, Osh Hardware store on Sunset Blvd: Man. Hunched over but motoring forward with an excess of purpose. Rumpled shirt indicated a great hurry to get out of bed in the morning, and not much attention paid to the interplay between suspenders and previously mentioned shirt. These two together clues lead us to conclude that Man is driven by An Idea. Cigar hanging out of man's mouth (how do they keep them in there without periodic readjustment I just don't know), slightly gnawed, intensified this suspicion.

Almost wish I had had a cigar hanging out of my mouth at that very moment. It adds such an air of elitist snobbery, and makes one think that owner of said cigar must have somewhere very important to go later, in order to savor the experience fully.

kona kai

Then I tasted coffee underneath my tongue and it reminded me of stomach-achey tanglewooded afternoons.
And of coffee, which I hate.

Who else thinks that Sarah Jessica Parker's hair has become unconscionably huge? Apparently it isn't enough that we have Amy Winehouse wandering around, whose hair seems to get bigger and body smaller every time she shows up in the news for a new drug arrest and/or drug snorting sighting. But really, Ms. Parker, when we start losing the face in the hair, as well as the shoulders, neck, and lapels, it's time to start looking into a new stylist, not to mention at yourself, in the mirror.
