This New Yorker story — believe it or not, written from the point of view of a condom — caused much laughter beneath the dusty rafters last week.
Podcasts on La Triv’s Mobile Media Control Console (aka iPhone) provide much diversion during the commute à pied between the Palazzo and the Wordporium. La toggles between Desert Island Discs (DID) with the gorgeous Kirsty Young, and This American Life with the equally gorgeous Ira Glass. Here they are.
You may have noticed that this particular Ira is extra large. Yep. Don’t say La never does anything nice for you.
Anyhows, quote of the week from George Bernard Shaw via this morning’s DID: “Better for a parent to be a horrible warning than a good example.” Parents among you, do with that what you will.
And speaking of a parent who was a bit of both: Diana. Loving Naomi Watts’s transformation from bike-riding West Village mum of two to the People’s Princess.
Speaking of transformations, am toying with a new high ponytail. Behold La look I’m aiming for.
I’m falling short but I’ll get there. Ira’s wife, Anaheed — who, in the main, remains comparatively un-Googleable — has a pixie cut. Time for a change, perhaps..?
