tuesday things


1)  So many flowers…all catching my attention.  It must be the season, I can think of no other explanation.

2)  I rather want one of these — should I be concerned?  I really think the only thing I need to be concerned about is whether I had the ingredients on-hand to make one for lunch.

3) I stumbled across these yesterday.  Standard-flavor macarons, while light and delicate, have a decadence all their own…but these are just ridiculous!!!  I’ll take a nice round dozen, please and thank you.

4)  Someone should make these for me…I could really use a pre-bike ride snack…please?


6)  Oh wow.  I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll leave a full critique for another time (and place, perhaps), but I will say this:  the film was true to the book, included Scott Fitzgerald quotes from sources other than The Great Gatsby (which only enhanced the film in my opinion, making it a lovely acknowledgement to the author’s poetry and talent), and left the attentive audience with the same aching disillusionment in such a way that I had feared only the novel could do.  I will certainly say that it wasn’t perfect – but I think Scott would be proud.

…and if anyone should know, I probably should.  No, I’m not obsessed!
