Leslie's Omnibus


Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday -- busy day and an evening meet-up with a very cool lady to talk about my retirement (some 15 years hence) and how I plan to get there with enough moo-la-la to actually enjoy it.

I actually enjoyed our discussion, even though talk of money usually gives me the gollywobbles. Yeesh. I might actually be growing up.

(Perish the thought.)

Anywhooo, after the money talk was over, I asked if she was still creating beautiful modern jewelry from vintage bits and bobs. Turns out she certainly is. Stop by and visit L'amie D'Amie. (And don't even think about ordering that green flower necklace. It's mine. All mine.)

I heart Bobby Jindal. Darling Daddy would have, too.

The Tea Party is coming to Chicago this Friday. I may just have to stroll down there with camera in hand.

I find Facebook pretty off-putting, but I find the second part of this op-ed column absolutely mind-boggling:
"It is common for a woman who has no other body art to get a genital piercing," said Elayne Angel, a piercing pioneer who has performed the procedure 40,000 times. "I get a lot of empty-nesters, retirees, soccer moms, sorority gals."

"Retirees?" I whispered.

"Certainly," she answered. "I have pierced quite a few in the category of older women. They're celebrating a renewal of their sexuality."
Sweet heavenly Lord, is this what I have to look forward to? I don't know about you, but I can think of a lot more fun ways to celebrate that renewal when the time comes!

Just for Elisson, Lollyphile!

Braised Venison with Bacon, Chestnuts and Wild Mushrooms in Rich Madeira Sauce?

Quail with Bacon and Honey?

Hmmmmm.... Makes me immediately think of this happy couple.

I love Paula Deen!

Gads, that's as jarring as hearing Britney Spears try to sing Joan Jett....
