*I predict that smaller handbags are going to be coming back into style. Women are possibly exhausted from carrying around bags that could and probably do hold everything from yoga mats to pup tents. Here's the thing with purses- the bigger the purse, the more stuff we feel we must tote with us everywhere. This has reached a level of absurdity. What could be more ridiculous than a fifty-eight pound movie star carrying around a one-hundred-and-twelve pound bag that cost $10,000? This is why those women have those obscenely veiny arms. Not the gym, not pilates. It's from carrying around those bags full of flame throwers or something. I myself am currently carrying an old, favorite red leather bag which is about big enough for a wallet, a phone, my keys and a pen. It feels fantastic.
*Sarah Jessica Parker is picking up fashion tips from me.
*Mia Farrow's brilliant and gorgeous son, Ronan
You think? This delights me for some reason. If I were Ronan, I would be more than thrilled.
*Hank has a new kitten.
Which means I have a new grandcat. It is as yet un-named, but when he asked for suggestions on Facebook, he got 74 comments so I am sure he will not be nameless for long. Hank is picking him up today following the darling little cat's neutering ceremony.
*This letter from the grandfather of a boy who recently came out as gay, written to his daughter who kicked her son out of the house makes me believe in humanity a little bit more. And makes me want to cry for more than one reason.
Click on it.
You go, Grampa! I love you!
*I guess the government is still in shut-down although enough Republicans have now abandoned their bullshit demands to vote on a clean bill to get things going again and to prevent the US from going into default. Boehner is refusing, however, to budge. What can I say that hasn't already been said?
I'll just add, "COCKSUCKER!" to the conversation.
*The boys are coming any moment. This means it is time to stop writing. Let us all have a beautiful day.
Much love...Ms. Moon
