Never mind that it was some internet robot/bot who said that I was in any way similar to this amazing woman! I'll run with it like Gollum treasured his ring. Even if it is in no way true, I WILL CLING TO THE FACT THAT I'M 63 % PATRICIA HIGHSMITH. Don't take it away from me, as the remaining 27 % are likely made up of, I don't know, Laura "you're really scaring me with that weird stare" Bush?
Miss him so much, especially at meal times. Today, served myself the sad remains of a bouillabaisse, after all the fish had been removed by hungry children. Had to complement the meagre soup with 2 nourishing white russians (with ice cubes cunningly replaced with frozen raspberries). Will now go find inspiration in "A tree grows in Brooklyn" which has already given me excellent advice on how to run a household on little more than stale bread.

There were plays or tv-shows with quotes like this real one
"We have not nurtured and cherished this one for you to make him die like his brothers or to go mad like his father, or to become English like you. I keep him for my own. Come and take him away, if you dare."
I might go to a doppelganger party. Do I remind you of anyone famous?
Feeling I wouldn't be the only Tina Fey/Sarah Palin there.
Feel free to bring on your most flattering and unflattering suggestions.
I've heard everything from Madonna, during a phase when she looked quite unlike herself:
to Lovisa Burfitt:
I find all these flattering mind you.
Have also gotten BARBARA STREISAND!!!! LOVE THIS!
Me as Babs in my sexy intellectual "I've read Proust AND Kafka AND Jonathan Franzen AND you can discuss Louise Bourgeois with me, but what you really wonder is: am I wearing undies?" Argyle-outfit.
Me as Babs in my "really, I AM AN AFRICAN WOMAN ON THE INSIDE"-outfit.
THAT FEELING OF BEING PREGNANT! THAT FEELING.
TEARS WELL UP. SO FUCKING HAPPY.
Baby at 30 is PERFECT, I KNOW CAUSE I HAD ONE THEN.
And then every morning looking at those kids right before you wake them up - the love is almost too much to handle. They balance it off nicely though by not co-operating at all once they're awake so you feel ok by dropping them off at daycare. Thank you children!
I have to remind myself now why I am so grateful every morning not to be pregnant these days. Why is that?

thanks for your overwhelming support in picking glasses!
I tried them on for Anders, he said "I like your old ones best", "please, I really want to read my book" and finally "didn't you just buy new glasses?".
"No I certainly did not", I replied, surprised that he didn't remember that the last time I bought new glasses, I had enormous boobs and was almost blind, in India. If you've been with me for a long time, can you believe how little Joel was back then?
Vanja. She's on a boat, y'all.
Niki rocking a summer outfit that is both glamorous (gold headband!), cuddly (pet dog) and functional (bottle).
Have had the same glasses since 2006. Thinking of getting new ones.
Like any of these?
The face I'm making here is identical to the one I give my children when they don't do as they're told. Incidentally it is also my sexy angry librarian look as I don't know how to make that many faces. Can you feel it?

The effort put into making this seem like a normal situation. Two men in matching knitted medieval helmets, covering their ears in a most unflattering way, one adds flair with a blanket around his neck, the other with a poor-mans Madonna gloves.
I can't stop looking at them.
Ps. at same site, found this knitting pattern. I love sweaters like these. Have you seen any non-used, non-handknit around?
Important update. Was wearing this sweater below when I posted this. I always do this - look for clothes I already have.
I've been called a fashion blogger which is hilarious. But because this has happened to me, I've decided to share today's outfit with you. How anyone can post a today's outfit with a serious face is BEYOND me. And because I learned to pose in the Footloose era
that's the only kind of pose I know. Kevin Bacon's revealing crotch shot is on the house! You're welcome!
What I'm really trying to say here is that I might post today's outfits here as long as the clothes I wear were almost free of charge since I want to counteract all the pics of expensive clothes on blogs every where.
Today, wearing pants from an outlet (100-kronorsbrallan!) and Anders' old t-shirt that was was tragically/conveniently washed at the wrong temperature, thereby losing all manly style. Not a prob if you're a woman!

Och när jag ser denna känner jag att jag kanske har det! HURRA!
It really looked like this yesterday when I was out running. That's why so many rich people live where I do. Rich people like horses and open spaces.
It really felt like this too. Endorphins will do that to you.
Sometimes when I post pictures of where I run, you say you wish you had some beautiful place to run too. But that's the wrong way around. Just go running. Keep running til endorphins kick in. Then you'll feel you're in the right place, where ever you are.

Sarah and Jonas got married after many years and three sons. Sarah is into dinosaurs and the north pole. She doesn't care that much about clothes. So the wedding gown thing was stressful. We, her friends did not understand this. Why not leave that to Jonas as she does with the rest of her clothes. This was different, she said.
But then, on her birthday, Jonas gave her 3 different Burberry dresses. Yes. As if he was her fairy godmother. One contemporary, one from the 90's when they met and one vintage 50's dress. Marry him!
In the bathroom, I saw an important message.
It was such a great party.
It will be 1o years since Aaliyah boarded that ill-fated plane. Such an enormous loss and tragedy! Here seen with another much missed legend.
Ps. Seeing this pic made me realize why I had to have an aqua jumpsuit.

Was about to buy these Chie Miharas, so hot in real life, much more beautiful than they look here.
But on my way to the store, fell over in front of ritzy sidewalk cafe - stood on all fours, undignified. Like this model. Did not buy more high heeled shoes.
