I don't drink gin, but I love beautiful things. So I wouldn't mind having this dark bottle on my shelve. The bottle is designed by Flow Design.
KAREN: Second. Anyway. We're done here, right? Because I'm meeting my sister Ginny for lunch, and I'm running late.
[EVERYONE LOOKS AT KAREN, CONFUSED.]
GRACE: Did you-- Did you just say sister?
KAREN: Yeah. I have lunch with Gin every Thursday. What's the big?
GRACE: Uh, maybe the fact that you have never mentioned that you have a sister?
KAREN: Mmm... Yeah, I think I have, Grace. Heh-heh. What do you think I'm talking about when I say, "Boy, do I love Gin"? Or, "I can't get through the day without Gin." Or, "That Gin gave me such a headache last night." I couldn't have been more clear. Sheesh. Next thing you know, you'll tell me you've never heard me mention my brother-in-law, Johnny Walker.
[KAREN EXITS THE APARTMENT.]
Okay, this is gonna be a useless post and definately gonna be labeled "who cares?".
Yesterday I got an email from a concert-tickets service offering tickets for Madonna's 2008 Worldtour. Highly overpriced as always, but that's nothing new. The new thing is that it says it's gonna take place in the Stade de France in Paris.
A large stadium is never my favourite place to see a concert. So is this tour (which hasn't even been announced yet) gonna be a big stadium-tour? Perhaps. And not a thing to look forward to.
Last years we always got our fairly priced tickets for the Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy. Even the name sounds better. The queen deserves a Palace, not a stadium. It's a venue much smaller and intimate than a stadium. Okay, it's fucking hot inside, but you are always close to the stage, even when you don't stand in line the night before the concert.
I really hope they will announce the tour in may or june and I also hope they add some dates in the smaller venues. But as I said; who cares about this news that isn't even news at this time.

Fantastic and VERY funny video for Sia's latest single. Here in the Netherlands they only play the remix on the radio, but the original is so much better!
13 characters in such a short time and all very believable.
These are probably the worst pictures I've seen in a long time. Nothing masculine, nothing beautiful, just some heavily photoshopped guys. First we destroyed every woman's self-esteem and now it's our turn... not gonna work, who would wanna look like this? Male skin looks so much better than this soft material they call skin.
I'm sorry. That last post about that football game was a lie. I hate playing games. Everyone who knows me knows that. I never played table football in my youth. The only game I enjoy is Monopoly and no one wants to play with me because I always win..... I'm sorry....

For many of us, table football is a game that is close to our hearts, holding cherished memories of our childhood and youth. Its popularity also reflects the passion and love that millions of people around the world share for 'the beautiful game' of football.

Let's start with Clint Mauro. Always a pleasure on the eyes with his hair cropped.
And some Michel Gondry always makes me happy. Hope you enjoy the video for "Star Guitar" by Chemical Brothers as much as I do.
And a beautiful new video for dutch formation Kraak & Smaak.

I really like this fashion-shoot. It shows the sea and cost the way I like it. Not crowded with oily people, but off-season, a bit grey, everything affected by the salty water and air. The clothing fits this atmosphere perfectly.
Took this picture yesterday evening while the last rays of sunshine flooded into our home. A moment of intense happiness, despite the fact that I was home alone.
Peter is in Bergamo, Italy and apparently he is the engine that keeps me awake. When I watched Dirty Sexy Money I didn't make it to the first commercial break. Fell asleep on the bed and woke up after midnight. Had a beer and nodded off again. Glad he will be back tonight.
