I hate winter. I HATE winter. Yea, that much. I just don't like being in St. Louis when the wind chills dip into the negatives. Why would you subject yourself to that? In any case, to shield myself from the deathly cold, I don't need a car with seat heaters, I just need this deliriously beautiful Marc Jacobs Classic Chesterfield! It's fuzzy like the Prada yeti/shag carpet coats from last year, but actually wearable and extremely desirable. I love charcoal, I love warm and fuzzy, I don't love the $2280 price tag. Crap.
Yea, they're totally silly. But this line slays me:
"Andy Martin, 34, a Fremontian who designs 'beeps and explosions' for video games, said he was drawn to the neighborhood partly by all the conversation-fodder art, including the Lenin statue."

Because Robert Pattinson is GORGEOUS. All-caps gorgeous. Absurdly, insanely, disturbingly gorgeous in that dirty kind of way. The way you don't really want to explain to people, because it's ravishing and probably very inappropriate. There's absolutely no reason for me to watch Twilight, a movie based on books I had never even heard of and concerning a subject I don't give a damn about. But holy shit, I could stare at him for hours. Hours I should be doing homework. Like right now. But all I really wanna do is swoon.

ESPNsoccernet - MLS - Ljungberg set to sign for Seattle
Yea, that's right. The absolute hottest Calvin Klein underwear model (excluding Garrett Neff, of course) is coming to Seattle. Holy crap. That's the best news ever. Combine Seattle's rainy weather and a really hot soccer player and you get a really wet, really hot soccer player. Hehehe. Now here's hoping Garrett Neff...enrolls at UW?

This man is an idiot:
"Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobby based in Washington, said in an interview, 'It’s more important than the presidential election.'
'We’ve picked bad presidents before, and we’ve survived as a nation,' said Mr. Perkins, who has made two trips to California in the last six weeks. 'But we will not survive if we lose the institution of marriage.'"So, please, if you're registered to vote in California, vote HELL FUCKING NO on Proposition 8.

Aw crap! Well, it really was nice while it lasted. It'd be nice to have a glittering new skyline with actual people living and working inside, but that may be many, many more years away.
Paula Deen is a goddess. A delicious butterball of a goddess. If she were my personal chef, well, I might just die and go to heaven right now. Yea, I probably would die, either from a heart attack or a stroke, I can't decide which. But it would all be worth it for just one night with Paula's incredible Disco Fries. Diner 24 in New York makes a version with brie and truffle sauce. God, I'm starving right now.

This lambskin jacket from Rick Owens on eLuxury may be the absolute most spectacular garment a guy can put on this autumn. Rick Owens uses the most buttery-soft distressed leather available, far softer than Mike & Chris or any other purveyor of desirable goods. This stuff is edgy but wearable, and certainly far cheaper than what girls wearing Balmain and even Nina Ricci are shelling out. So, if despite the economy, you still have a few bucks left in the bank to burn, there are really no better options than this jacket, a shield against the crisp autumn air...and possibly against anybody thinking you're afraid of this recession. You lucky bastards.

When you look into the eyes of 16 year-old Abbey Lee Kershaw, you don't exactly see a glowing, happy high school girl, do you? Alas, near the end of a long day, in which she woke up at 5 am and walked her last show more than 15 hours later, Abbey was nearly done with her stroll in Alexander McQueen's presentation when she fainted just before leaving the stage. Yikes. I suppose the leather corset she's wearing may be somewhat worrisome, but I think a lot of it has to do with the monthlong marathon of fashion shows that she has struggled through. Just a few weeks back in New York, Abbey also took a spill at the Rodarte show in her extremely high platforms and tight pants. Dangerous shoes are apparently a trend for Spring 2009, but if models can't navigate the runways in them, how are civilians going to traverse the less-than-ideal streets of New York? On a side note, the Alexander McQueen show was exceptionally beautiful.
