after partying like it was the end of the world this last month, i was so happy to have a low-key weekend. i read a book, did some tax free shopping, and also spent some time in one of my favorite havens, kate's paperie. i bought some exquisite pink notecards and envelopes embossed with a pea hen, as well as some crane's cards and a nice pen. the fountain pen subsequently exploded all over my hand when i got home, but even that seemed sort of romantic and old-timey. the ink-stained writer at home in her hovel.
i also watched old boy on DVD. a crazy crazy film. i enjoyed it, but i was definitely a bizarre journey. A+ cinematography.
monday hrh, richard famous friend and i went to the west indian day parade, which was loud, chaotic and fun. great music, good food, and a lot of flesh on display. the women really have amazing body confidence, and often the larger the woman, the less clothing. what i really like are feathers. and headdresses. and feather headdresses. le sigh!
after the parade we had drinks at apt, stopped by the maritime, and then by splash for musical mondays, and ended up chowing down at cafeteria before heading home to snooze.
