LOOK at these photos I just scanned in!


I miss these b/w photo booths. Anyone know where any are now? They would totally have the black and white ones — the color ones make everyone and anyone look Horrible!!

So here is Chris and I AFTER dancing our butts off at the B-52s concert Dec. 13, 1989. Yes, my hair stayed up ALL night except for one little piece that Chris had to keep spraying back into place at the very top. He had a tiny bottle of hairspray in his Purse. Jenny did my hair with a styrofoam cone and 4.5 bottles of AquaNet (sorry for that one Ozone hole I am responsible for over Denton).

Riding down to the Bronco Bowl (RIP!) I had to sit with my head laying sideways on the back seat because my hair wouldn’t fit in the car otherwise. Chris and Chip (not pictured here unfortunately) were dressed in the craziest ’60s minidresses with TONS of makeup and cropped hairstyles.

As we were walking to our seats, some guy said: “You’re a Goddess and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.” (See how long I hang on to a great praise like that — almost TWENTY years!)

I wanted to RUN after him! If I had of caught him, I am sure I would be a divorced mom dealing with a gay ex-husband!! Thank GOD I didn’t run after him!! tee hee

Chris & Chip? Have anything to add?

Red Leather Diary by Lily KoppelI absolutely adored The Red Leather Diary!! Lily Koppel takes you with her right into the dumpster where she finds the steamer trunks with the flapper dresses, coats, telegrams and photos that surround a small red leather diary from the 1930s.

You then follow along on the journey of the young Florence as if you are her favorite pair of glasses that she would never be without as her deepest thoughts and desires are revealed day in and day out for 5 years.

Lily’s style transcends the written word in a picturesque way that aid as you visualize Florence’s journey through the streets of an exciting NYC. And I LOVED the addition of photos throughout the book, which continually validate Lily’s words.

What a dream to have been Lily — finding all these items AND finding a teenage Florence as a 90 year-old woman. This is the stuff of the best films come true to life. I hope they make a film together. It would be exquisite; I have no doubt.

Pick this up to journey back to a seemingly simpler way of life. And pick up your own diary and start recording your own thoughts and desires!!

BRAVO Lily and Florence!!!! Being the curious snoop that I am, I would LOVE to see the full manuscript of the diary exactly as Florence wrote it. Now That would be a fun and different way to read a book!!
