Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |frustratedfrustrated]

To cheer myself I've been watching Comedy Central's clips from The Daily Show's convention coverage. Jon Stewart's smartness makes him incredibly sexy.

Also, I just got a parking ticket.

Home soon?

yes. I'll sign a note for you to go home very soon.

also, yes. <3 Jon Stewart.

btw, did I ever tell you that I saw the painting in your icon in Seattle a few years ago? She's magnificent in person. Life size, or thereabouts. quite frosty, but with a sense that there's passion underneath the propriety. I adore her. :)

I got to see her in New York and oh.. I just adored her. I love how you can still see where the fallen strap got painted out..

If you're interested, you should read this: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1585422215/qid=1091125177/sr=8-3/ref=pd_ka_3/104-0545981-3027145?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 It's a book about the painting, the people involved, all that. I heard the author on NPR one afternoon and just loved her.. she talked about how they hung this painting in a gallery show of Sargent's work facing a portrait of her acknowledged lover at the time and how the place must have just smoldered at night. This is the painting of him: http://www.jssgallery.org/Paintings/Dr_Samuel_Jean_Pozzi_at_Home.htm

Hi, I'm a geek.

My favorite of his is actually this one: http://www.jssgallery.org/Paintings/Lady_Agnew.htm

Just her face.. like.. "Put the brush down and get over here. NOW."

:) I love this one, too. Oddly enough, it's not one of the ones in my Sargent calendar this year. :(

Ah well, if I go Sargenting again next year, maybe she'll be there.

Are You Even More Jealous Now?

You should be... because I'm going to NYC for this coming Monday's Daily Show taping!

Personally Melissa, I think this puts me over the top, and that all should bow to my awesomeness! :-)
