Why was I not born to be a French girl with side-swept hair, wearing summer dresses on her bike while eating a rainbow of pastries?
I am crying hot salty sad tears of envy.
Not fair, dude.
disappointingly yours, t.

Btw, yes, it is actually very great. That girl sure knows how to make a comeback.
*Other albums which have leaked and which I have copies of include, but are not limited to, Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak and The Killer’s Day & Age.

“He requested seven loaves of Pennsylvania Wheat Bread and a tub of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to be brought directly from New York to the set. My only job was bringing him the bread and the fake butter. Karl paid me $500 to do it, plus he paid off my $200 speeding ticket.”
The only payment I would request would be in form of a Chanel purse!

TODAY! Finally. I can not wait for all this to be over. It would be too soon if I ever heard the following words ever again: Joe the Plumber, maverick, hockey mom, Joe six-pack, William Ayers, or drill, baby, drill.
Four years ago, as I was flying back to Los Angeles from New York City, I watched the coverage of the Democratic National Convention on the plane. Even though I am not really into politics or politicians, I sat, riveted, as a young senator from Illinois gave a powerful and moving speech. Landing back in LA, I called up my friends and gave my nostradamus prediction for President in 2016 (assuming it was too early for him in 2008 or 2012). But, now, it seems as if the United States - and the world - is ready for him - and let us hope that he is also ready for us. No major news outlet has called it yet, but I am - congrats to the 44th President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II.

My thoughts? Quail designer Michelle Nguyen Williams paired all her models with the Alice + Olivia for Payless Rivington Ankle boots, in a moment of high fashion meets the streets. Everyone in the crowd – including models walking for Laeken – wore nerdy (made cool by hipsters) glasses. And choice songs of the season include Lykke Li’s Little Bit and MGMT’s Time to Pretend. But, really, no fashion show could ever feature as much scandal, outrage, rumors, and shocking behavior as Eleanor Waldorf’s on Gossip Girl ;)

In other news: spotted- a former gossip girl canoodling with LA’s very own party promoter last night at Foxtail. Perhaps SBE needs a new intern now that Heidi supposedly doesn’t work there?

duh nuh nuh nuh, duh nuh nuh nuh, clap clap - that little ditty used to excite me, sending shivers up my spine in anticipation. Now, it chills my beating heart and fills my stomach with bile.
Why? Because the CW ruined 90210. Kelly Taylor is a guidance counselor? Maybe she can guide the new cast of girls on how to steal boyfriends or backstab best friends. She certainly does not need to listen to other people’s drama after her own lifetimes of drama – being addicted to diet pills, having a cokehead mom, having David Silver see her naked when she got out of the shower that one time, getting date raped, almost getting raped, actually getting raped, killing her rapist, getting caught in a house fire, being stalked, having to go to rehab, having amnesia, being shot, being in a cult, having a miscarriage, and living with Donna Martin. She also got carbon-monoxided (damn you, Tara Marks, for not finishing the job!)
Perhaps a future conversation between a student and Kelly:
Kelly: So what is the problem, kid? Rape, coke, diet pills, rape, creepy new step-brother, drunk Mom, burns from a fire, stalker, or rape?
Student: You said rape three times.
And Brenda Walsh? Everyone knows Brenda should be living in France as a full-time diva – with Dylan McKay. But of course, after tonight’s revelation, my dream of Brenda and Dylan together forever came to a disastrous end. Kelly is Dylan’s baby mama. Groan. The horror of it all!
Brenda and Dylan were meant for each other. I had imagined a post-90210 world in which Kelly died of another coke addiction and Brenda and Dylan drove around in Dylan’s Porsche Boxster listening to R.E.M. Yeah, yeah, bite my tongue, right? Well, it doesn’t even matter because the new 90210 seems a little irrelevant in a post-OC world now dominated by Gossip Girls. Take that, CW!
duh nuh nuh nuh, duh nuh nuh nuh, clap clap.

I may not have had luck on my side this past weekend while in Las Vegas (getting stuck in an elevator, leaving my cell phone at McDonald’s, and clashing with an American Apparel employee at the Caesar’s Palace Forum Shops) but I certainly still do believe in the Olympic spirit. And so does Nike. Just watch. Just do it.

Okay, okay, we get it. You are not here to make friends. But you definitely are here to get your fifteen minutes of fame.
Speaking of... Heidi’s fifteen minutes have resulted in a question on Jeopardy. This is a sad day for America.

Song of the week: “Bossy”
Worker of the week: Leonardo DiCaprio
Article of the week: “The Tao of Mary Kate”
Upgrade of the week: Strawberry Shortcake
Interview of the week: Anna Wintour with New York Magazine
Quote of the week:
“One day in the distant future, the children of our children’s children will look back upon the ‘aughts’ for retro inspiration and stumble upon the sartorial black hole that is Paris Hilton. Her egregious crimes against fashion are too numerous to list here, but in this photo of Her Tragedy, accompanied by her boyfriend Benji Madden, the offending look is very wannabe It couple: If you took a snapshot of Kate Moss and Pete Doherty from two years ago, photocopied it 27 times, covered it in Velveeta, ran it through a Hot Topic sample sale and then sold it as a cheap knock-off on Canal Street, it would look like this picture.” – Elizabeth Spiridakis
Collabo of the week: Converse / Pharrell / Santogold / Julian

Back in November, Nasim, Shahrooz, and I (along with the rest of the UK) were singing along with Leona Lewis. Five months later, the US finally discovers Bleeding Love and I have heard KISS FM put it into heavy rotation.
I haven’t decided if that means we are behind or they are. [This random thought brought to you by the fact that both ex-flatmates but forever friends are in Los Ang.]

Just a month ago, Karl Lagerfeld recreated a 75-foot Chanel jacket for the Chanel Haute Couture Spring show. This past week, he recreated a Chanel carousel for the Chanel Ready-to-Wear Fall show.

According to Wikipedia, there has been a long-running joke about Matt Damon on Jimmy Kimmel. Best part: “...on the bed, on the floor, on a towel by the door, in the tub, in the car, up against the mini-bar...” Amazing.

A place where no one and everyone is a Londoner, where the prim and posh can play with the punk rockers, and where the pound rules all. To say the least, I immensely enjoyed London Town. Cheers to new experiences (and new blog entries), new beginnings, and the new year.
