Oregon Soul

Thanks to the Gods of sea and sky we had the perfect Oregon coast experience. A weekend in Cannon Beach with a dog and without children. 60 degrees on the beach with no wind, and a cerulean blue sky, it seemed like nothing bad existed in the world. A delightful hotel and several splendid beers on the pub patio next door made for the perfect evening chat.
The following day we explored Ecola State park which might be one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Enjoy these pix!

the Bin Laden Bunch

Newsweek ran these amazing photos of the Bin Laden family on vacation in Sweden, circa 1971. Nothing could be farther from the recent image of Osama crouched near that tiny tv, huddled in his blanket in the compound. So strange!
The Bin Ladens probably would have made for a great family sitcom, or these days a reality show. They are really groovy!! I like the guy on top of the car on the right with the purple pantsuit. And what about that crazy car! A pink Cadillac?! Are you kidding me?!

A Hot Tranny Mess

Thanks to my friend Anne for the link to SNL's hilarious spoof on Project Runway. Tiny Designer Christian Siriano's charming fey-ness is over the top, but my personal favorite is Tim Gunn. I wish they had added Michael Kors and Nina Garcia!
