i've been in an elliot smith mood, oh, for the last two months.
if i had to pick or play favorites, he'd be tied for first between joanna newsom and yann tiersen in my book.
this past couple of days have been jam packed with a major photography shoot (medium format per usual!) for the thesis on christmas eve in addition to squeezing as much fun out of hte past couple of days before my bff/hetero life partner left for disney world for new years. which makes me incredibly jealous. how great is that?
well, miro! por favor.

my first bite of barbeque in 6 years. i started eating meat a couple weeks ago. this happened slowly, i should add. sophmore year of high school, i became vegetarian, senior year, i was vegan and freshmen year of college, iwas vegetarian again. junior year of college, i was pescatarian. i spent more and more time in new orleans and was not eating as healthy as i should as a vegetarian. so much of the cuisine is based on fish dishes, since it is a gulf coastal area. even "ethnic" cuisine is homogenized to be more creole style. it was healthier, more a part of the culture, to eat more gulf coastal style food, in addition food being a huge part of my family. once i began eating fish again, i became more curious about how other food tasted, in addition to just reading many more recipes, such as pork shoulder and bone marrow soup (umm....totally sounds delicious...)
curiosity got the best of me...and now i am an omnivore that eats mainly vegetarian.
after having a horrifically fun day on thursday, i got home and remembered/realized that i had to light my house for my photo shoo and make food for our christmas eve dinner!
so i got to it.

one day, my guy friends came over and demanded an adventure
so we had one
first polish food somewhere deep in teh outer reaches of houston
then we ventured further, oh 20 minutes further and just slightly beyond neighborhoods we discovered this and these
hills to roll down
we could still hear the cars and highway close by but we could smell the damp water and trees of the swampy forest.
after that adventure
i changed clothes, and changed gears. i retaught myself stick shift and met my sister for dinner.
it got colder
i wore this
rachel comey dress (xmas gift) tsumori chisato tights, ked shoes (also xmas gift), rachel comey sample sale sweater and belt, new ebay purchase- marc by marc jacobs jacket
i felt like a nut cracker, it was glorious
in my sister's bathroom, i seek refuge in attempting to hug my mirror image.
and also, you can see the back of my dress this way
and then today
i wore this
to return gifts and eat lunch with my sister, put off packing and get sucked into a 6 hour law and order svu marathon.
it may, in fact, be the greatest show ever created.
