Kristan Hoffman - Writing Dreams Into Reality

This “no internet till noon” business is killing me. I swear the minutes between 11:40 am and 12:00 pm have begun to pass more slowly. It is NOT an illusion or some Einsteinian relativity thing. It’s just. too. slow!

(Good for productivity, though…)

While I don’t know anything about Le Clezio, the man who today won the Nobel for literature, I liked what French President Sarkozy had to say about him:

“A child in Mauritius and Nigeria, a teenager in Nice, a nomad of the American and African deserts, Jean-Marie Le Clezio is a citizen of the world, the son of all continents and cultures,” Sarkozy said. “A great traveler, he embodies the influence of France, its culture and its values in a globalized world.”

I don’t normally take much interest in high fashion, because it’s usually too concept-y and not very practical (or attractive). But last night I channel surfed right onto Project Runway, and I was blown away by Leanne’s collection for Fashion Week. Really gorgeous lines and colors. I’d love to own/wear that stuff. (Also would love to look that good wearing it…)

    I missed almost all of this past project runway. I’m hoping for a marathon day where they show them all.

    Yeah – the no internet thing until noon must be hard – but useful for the writing.

    I’m hoping not to get hooked on PR… but I admit, after seeing that episode, I kind of want to know who wins!

    The first ever PR winner was a girl from my hometown, Houston, so I went to her store lot8 with my friend Angie (who I think had been there before).

    I wish I could adopt a no Internet before noon role, but it is impossible. It’s sad how often I check my email (and sort of have to).

    Now I’m curious to read Le Clezio’s Wandering Star. Do you think the translation will do it justice?

    Yep, I got my prom dress from Lot 8 back in the day before Chloe won.

    I have no idea, honestly.

    But oh yeah, I forgot your prom dress actually came from there!
