This is where I am in my life right now:
Living life I never thought was possible…
Glad to be given an opportunity…
A place in the world…
And now I’m officially “booklover”.

It’s been a while since I last visited her site, or any other fashion site for that matter. Either I gave up on fashion, or I learned to be satisfied with what I’ve got and stop ogling at things I can’t have. Yet.
Anyway, I was just checking my favorite fashion sites and here: a reminder that I still have not finished Lolita and my copy is a borrowed one. Sure, there’s no time frame for its return and the lender is a super cool, super nice person, but still…
I wonder: did she choose Lolita because she likes it, or because it looks cool?
Or is it just the sunglasses?
The full Lolita post here.

Marilyn Monroe. Reading Ulysses.
I. Am. Officially. Behind.
Back in June 13, 2010 I asked the question, and apparently the answer is this year. And for the whole year.
It started when…
and I thought what better than…
I want to thank Honey of Coffeespoons, my partner for this challenge, for this really wonderful idea. I think you may have just helped me find a way to get through the tough ones.
Now I have to start reading if I want to have something to report by the 16th.
Happy reading to us! 🙂

I went to Dipolog City to see the home of an online friend… see the environment that nurtured the person I admire.
I experienced a full Café Romano hospitality.
Meewa’s Papa’s sculpture.
The library. It’s refreshing to visit a friend that has a lot of books to compare with my own and discuss about. It is quite a rarity.
A full Café Romano breakfast with the famous espresso. ♥ This was an excellent breakfast, but I have just arrived that morning so it was full of talk and less of the eating. Truly delightful! 🙂
Demitasses. One set of many from Meewa’s collection.
Dandi and Misha, Meewa’s brothers. My last picture at the house. I think this is very picturesque. The photo is not very good as usual, but it’s the whole scene, the feeling it evokes: it makes me want to go back every time I see it.
Meewa of Les Fleur d’un Livre. 🙂 I’m so glad to finally meet her after years of online friendship. Even through the net we’ve connected quite well to make me (finally) take on a trip south and be with her. I experienced more than I thought I would for an overnight stay. I had a truly wonderful time there. I think I laughed the whole time.
This year, –and I know it’s not over yet but I don’t think both or either can be topped– I have had two wonderful, life-changing periods with people I never thought existed. Both broke my heart. The first one because He took my dreams away, and the second because They are so very far away.

Been hanging out at Stars Hollow / Yale again with my favorite Lorelai’s. I do love this show. Actually, this is my other world.
The Dragonfly Inn’s library or common room. This is the very picture of a quintessential family inn.
Rory at the Yale Library.
Rory’s room. I love and want that very poster of Jane Eyre, or is it Charlotte Bronte?
I love it. Ah, I love the Gilmores’ world.
