Things I love this week:

-Offering strangers gum. Great way to win friends and influence people at the end of an early morning flight

-Christina Hendricks' Mad Men sass. (below is a shot from her recent Esquire shoot...) hey girl HEY!

-San Francisco's Indian Summer (are we still allowed to say "indian summer"? I'm pretty sure our grandchildren will cringe and apologize to their friends when we say this in a couple decades. "please don't mind my grandma, she doesn't know better than to be old-fashioned and offensive")

-a month off! i need a plan... my Octobercation starts in only 1 week!

Warning: Gypsy On The Loose

I am a woman now.

You see, only Women have lipstick. And after hunting high and low and looking a lot like a tranny ho, I found My Lipstick.

I am 23 years old, and my generation doesn't really use lipstick. But something in me was crying out that I just HAD TO HAVE SOME.

Since I have, well, bold eyebrows, it can sort of scare small children when i wear other distinct colors on my face. But, thanks to my dear friend, Coco Chanel, I have discovered My Lipstick. And while I can't actually confidently wear it yet, it is empowering me to be bold and not care so much what other people think. And also, it helps to keep other people from drinking out of my In N Out milkshakes because the straw is so clearly marked as MINE.

The name of this little tube of pinkred delight is Gypsy Scarlet. I'm going to fill my weekend with lots of gypsy-like activities, including but not limited to wandering, dancing around tents and campfires, and ofcourse, pickpocketing.

I'll report back after this test run.
