Food Christmas Eve / Feaster

Mostly that's what's happening today, a day of rain-soaked red carpet, India sadness, fresh bagels and laserlike focus on determining when it's appropriate to start cocktailing, which sounds more delicate than drinking. Only there is no muumuu. Yet.

Paint-by-Numbers Venice

Accurate? Hard to say. Fascinating? Definitely.

Yes, it's supposed to rain. Boring old says so. But is it iced-coffee weather?

May All Your Days be Circus Days

"Elephant husbandry" is an excellent pachyderm term. Sundara is an excellent brand-new pocket-sized pachyderm starlet, and will soon appear in the Greatest Show on Earth. Why, again, aren't we elephant trainers?

Make Snow Angels Not War

Sun Valley '08 hotness. Nothing like a little conspicuous consumption and remote travel and overpriced lift tickets to ring in the new year. And global economic dissolution. Sorry friends from GM and Lehman Brothers and Yahoo! (That's their exclamation point, not mine... an exclamation point would be so gauche in these trying times. Not our style. We ski for peace.)

Creature Feature

Love a creature story: Venice, alligator, police, Gold's Gym. Everything. Next time will someone call us, please?

Bagel Wednesday

Apparently it's all in the barley malt (and the wrist) (and the oven being sort of broken).
