Legends of La Cienega: Designers Salute Hollywood

As seen in Elle Decor magazine...

Los Angeles became even more glamorous last week when nearly 40 interior designers and set decorators took over the windows of the sensationally chic La Cienega Design Quarter. At dozens of trendsetting showrooms—from Hollyhock to Baker, Downtown to Hollywood at Home—crowd-pleasing vignettes interpreted classic movies and television programs and kept visitors entranced morning, noon, and night. Sponsored by ELLE DECOR, the annual event, known as Legends of La Cienega, brought out the design world's best and brightest.

GAH!!! WHAT A FABULOUS CONCEPT!!!!  These are my favorites. LOVE THEM!!!

Side Note: If I had been part of this contest, I'm pretty sure I would have done a room inspired by The Silence of the Lambs.  Oooooh.  Or the Umbrellas of Cherbourg.  Or The Aviator.  Or Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  Or or or.  OH GOD.  So many great options!

Good Housekeeping


Tom_Cruise_Good_Housekeeping_06-06
I'm sure Tom Cruise knows ALL about hiring good housekeepers.



I live in a duplex. My friend and neighbor rents the other half of the duplex, and he is A NEAT-NICK. You can't even believe how clean his place is. His place is always SPOTLESS. Absolutely immaculate. He cleans constantly. CONSTANTLY. 

I'm clean, but not THAT clean. Pretty clean. Well, you know, sorta clean. Ok, I don't clean as often as I should. Let's just say I most likely wouldn't win any good housekeeping awards. I'd probably get a NEEDS IMPROVEMENT score in the cleaning department.  Side note: For some reason when I clean, I tend to peter out.  I always seem to leave one room or one area in a HALF-ASSED and NOT-SO-CLEAN state.  I bust ass everywhere else, and then I am just too tired and I flail about and say I'll clean that one last area a little bit later.  This happens EVERY SINGLE TIME I CLEAN.  Stupid!

My neighbor admits that he has a mental disorder that causes him to clean constantly.  I guess that isn't the worst mental illness ever, but DAMMIT, it shows me up.  My twat landlord is constantly comparing the cleanliness of my neighbor's apartment to my apartment.  DAMMIT.  I hate that!  It is like your parents comparing your report card to that of your siblings!  STOP IT!! 

The other day I caught my neighbor DUSTING HIS FRONT DOOR. Who does that? It infuriated me! And today when I was on my way out I noticed how dusty my front door was. GODDAMMIT. I guess I need to dust it. *&$^%^!@*#(

P.S. Last summer I caught my neighbor cleaning the gravel.  THE GRAVEL.  Unbelievable.

Risk Aversion


fried_chicken430x300

Do you chomp down on fried chicken with utter abandon? Without even LOOKING at it? Or does the fear of biting into a vein or a rubbery cartilage globule cause you to pull at the chicken and inspect each bite before putting it into your mouth?

You can probably guess where I stand on this issue.
