Bag Lady

Recently I was on a six-and-a-half hour cross-country plane ride sitting, in awe, next to a woman with a gorgeous new Louis Vuitton monogram handbag. It wasn’t the bag exactly that caught my eye (although it was a beauty). I was amazed that throughout the entire trip, the woman cradled the purse in her lap— careful not to sully its perfect leather—not once letting it touch the ground. I’ve never been that obsessed with a bag, although I’ve come admittedly close. Close enough, in fact, to consider buying something like this:


Super Bowl of Dip



At my friend's Superbowl party yesterday, the spread could not have been more classic—chips, guacamole, 7-layer dip, homemade wings and someone brought a tray of sushi that went mostly uneaten. The drinks were, as another friend likes to call them "macrobrews," though, like my beloved Pacifico and that macro masquerading as a micro, Sam Adams. This photo was taken, that's right, deep into the fourth quarter, as the Superbowl party is the year's first opportunity to excuse one's self from new year's dieting plans and eat carcinogenic snacks.
