Dear winter

Despite hating the cold and winter, Niki had a great moment here with her lunch and the man of her dreams, Stefan.

Dear Jordan/Katie Price

The shock of seeing you with blonde hair again is enough to make grown men lose their grip.

Dear Sherlock Holmes museum

Dear Sherlock Holmes museum, I'm fascinated by the fact that your Holmes & Watson Salt and Pepper set is said to be "much sought after by collectors".

Dear Calvin Klein

I know you make money off men's briefs, so how about this smoking hot man from the 1480s?

Dear fish

I admire the attitude you keep even after losing your head. Or is it rather your bodies you've lost?

That tree AGAIN

This morning.

Dear people behind "A history of the world"

Just listen to this.

Dear Julian Assange defense lawyer

Sure, you can come up with funny remarks such as

"Whatever 'sex by surprise' is, it's only a offense in Sweden -- not in the U.K. or the U.S. or even Ibiza," Stephens said. "I feel as if I'm in a surreal Swedish movie being threatened by bizarre trolls."

But we'll see what comes out of this whole deal.

Dear Nicole Richie/Winter Kate

At $795 this is too expensive for me and at my age it's probably too short too, but I LOVE THIS DRESS. I'd wear it to work, to the playground, to daycare, to picnics, ANYTHING to make me think it's a sensible purchase.

dear winter

Every morning is a struggle to dress these two in the insane amount of clothing stated in your secret brief to assure parental calm once they're left off at daycare. the kids look happy, at this stage i'm usually sweating, stressing and (not proud of it) screaming.

Life in a Northern town

We live like this.

Dear people of Milan

Am truly impressed by your aesthetic ways and sense of order. When it rains, you seem to think raincoats and wellies are beneath you. You dress elegantly, often in fur rimmed clothes and boots in perfect condition. Then you put a shield between you and the rain/snow - an umbrella. But when entering a museum, you dispose of your shield in this elegant fashion - putting it in an umbrella case, each compartment has it's own lock and key.
Naturally, you bring this sense of order to your favorite pasttime - eating. Your roasted chestnuts are sold in this practical double bag - perfect for discarding shells without having to blend with the remaining delicacies.
With respect and admiration

Dear fellow commuters

Yesterday, travelling by bus looked like this.
Today, like this. Both magical, cold and well, challenging.

On the good side, I met my mother at the bus stop. One of the benefits of living close to your parents - commuting turns into a family affair.
