Do you remember Eloise by Kay Thompson? Gee, I was crazy about that book when I was little. I need to find it back.
Oh and am I the only one who didn’t know, until today, that Eloise was inspired by Thompson’s goddaughter, Liza Minelli? I have to admit I was totally ignorant about that part ;)
Gwen Richardson, 1921
I’ve just finished reading Tomine’s Summer Blonde, and it was a huge slap in the face everytime I finished a story (there are 4 of them). The main characters are definitely what most people would call “total losers”, but they are never crappy enough for the reader not to identify with them. You always end up thinking “well, that “loser” could be me.” And that’s Tomine’s genius IMHO.
Oh and the graphics are so good.
I’m so sorry, I naively thought I could blog as much as before now that they gave me access to the internet (for the ones who don’t know I’m in rehab), but it’s humanely impossible. With all the group therapy, the occupational therapy, and the crazy stuff that happens in this house, I’m pretty much dead after dinner, and I usually go straight to bed.
I dislike most of the people here. I think we are 15 patients and only 3 women. Most of them are vulgar, sexist, homophobic, loud, mean…But I have a best friend, someone amazing. He’s a 54 year-old man with MS. He’s the oldest guy here, and we struck a friendship up pretty quickly. He’s highly intelligent, has great humor, and we support each other all the time. His name is Claude.
Friendship can be so surprising sometimes. I’m so glad I met him. I know he’s gonna be someone important in my life, even when we’ll be out.
I’ll try to post more stuff. The usual of course(pictures) and I’ll also try to share a little about my life here.
Thank you again for your patience, loyalty and support, I appreciate it so much!

Is Iggy Azalea a modern day pin-up girl? By looking at Complex Magazine new photo spread, one may think so. This photo shoot is sultry, retro and very stylish! of course, I love this ode to 50’s pin-up girls and this Iggy Azalea pulled it off very well.
