not so pretty to pretty.

By 3/12/2015

ever spent an hour with your head stuck in an airplane toilet?   real, real bad times.

that feeling of embarrassment you get when you're sick, or urgently need to use the restroom - and you don't want anyone to know quickly goes right out the door when things get real.  i laid down in the aisle.   i puked until i was shaking and i finally came out striped down to a tank top, looking like I'd found, and fought every last snake on the plane.

stomach bug, flu, death  - whatever, i got it bad.

so, i'm back from dallas - seemingly a two day colon cleansing retreat, hopefully looking two pounds smaller, and with lots of details to show you from the home I'm working on there.

i can't show big pieces of the pie because ideally this sucker would be on the cover of the NYT, WSJ and the journal of psychology (because it's full on wackadoo) all at the same time.  but here's what I can share of the space coming together and of some shopping i did in town (btw - i love shopping in dallas.  i just like dallas, a lot).

  6. The pics -- wow! That malachite desk! That wallpaper! That cheetah stair runner!

    Feel better. I sprawled out on the floor of my doctor's waiting room during a bad kidney infection & did hatha breathing exercises to distract myself from the pain. It was right up there with doing an ugly cry in public. Made the other people in the waiting area pretty uncomfortable.

  7. Sounds awful - nothing worse than being sick in public...I went to NYC last month and didn't make it to the bathroom and threw up on the table in my favorite restaurant....talking about not pretty...
    Glad you are better, and I need to know what that dark blue/orange? print fabric on the chair is...want to upholster my den sofa in it....do tell.
