I have, rather indulgently. been celebrating my birthday aaaaaaaaaaaaall week with lots of girlfriend fun.
First...Vandy J and The Testosterone Three came to visit!!
I can't tell you how much fun we had! Vandy is every bit as nice and fun and easy-going as you'd think from her blog. We never stopped talking for the entire day. It was like we were old friends. And her boys were absolutely darling! They were all extremely good sports when I got us all hopelessly gridlocked in traffic.
Seriously, I wanted to take both boys home with me! Jude would love a couple of brothers! Can't wait for them to come back again, and we can get Turbo and Jude together.
Next, my college roommate Lannyl came to town from New York and stayed with us a couple of nights...
Lannyl is someone who I can not see for 6 months, and when we're together we pick up right where we were as if we saw each other yesterday. It always amazes me how alike our lives are on their opposite coasts! She is also welcome back any time she wants!
Then on Friday, Lynn and I celebrated our birthdays (Lynn's was Tuesday!) by meeting for high tea at the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel. Veeeeery swanky. Tea, finger sandwiches, scones and clotted cream, pastries. Oh yes, it was good. Celebrity sightings: Warren Beatty (looking pretty old, I must say) and Maya Rudolph who is very pregnant. Here's a shot of our pastries and the back of Maya's head...
I am fairly obsessed with this website - Archetype Me. Basically, you take a little quiz and then the website decides which archetypes you most resemble, the archetypes being - Advocate, Athlete, Caregiver, Creative, Fashionista, Intellectual, Queen/Executive, Rebel, Spiritual and Visionary. I am a Caregiver/Intellectual/Creative. Which does, in fact, pretty much sum me up in neat stereotypes. Then you check out articles and websites chosen to fit your particular archetype types. It's pretty fun, I must say. And...a time suck. So...warning.
I LOVE these. A photographer father uses his 5-year old daughter to recreate classic paintings. These are truly amazing portraits, not copies of classic paintings, but more...inspired by them.
Definitely worth checking out!
That's all the random for today. Go see Stacy for more fun!
