the hey day of 80s fashion
christine's post made me think of i saw yesterday. this, as worn by one of the migrant workers in town. actually, the one she was wearing had the elephants on the back, but that's not the point. do you remember these shirts? i'm sure it was orginally $3o, in the 80s, but she probably found it at a thrift store for a buck.

remember when banana stores more closely resembled a tommy bahamas than an ann taylor? i remember lots of straw huts and jungle gear. it's funny the cycles that retailers go through.

but thinking of this made me wonder what designer labels have stood the test of time (or, at least a generation). what do you think? i was thinking of how popular esprit was. what the heck happened to that line? and guess and benetton still have stores...but really, how many people do you know that actively seek out either store when shopping? i suppose the frontrunner, for popularity anyway, would be ralph lauren.

huh, esprit is still selling clothes...

my bed is in a small town
i am starting to worry that my perspective is going to get skewed the longer i live in a small town. no offense to mellencamp but i was not born in a small town and i don't see it all in a small town. there are good things, like getting waves from strangers just because. or living less than a mile from work - a dream come true for me. but i have a hard time with the pettiness which is all the more amplified in a small town of aged people.

this week i was talking in a group of women twice my age. naturally the subject of weight management came up and they went around the circle sharing the pounds each of them lost after their first divorce. yes, all of them were divorced and the collective pounds lost was in the hundreds.

the conversation chilled me to the core. i realize that divorce rates are at an all-time high, personally i believe that boomers are just like that, but it still makes me think. i have not been married yet, though i'd like to be someday. i'd like to believe that marriage works, but anecdotal evidence here is proving otherwise. and i know, there are so many other factors involved, and that these women are wonderfully happy on their second marriages...but still.

still here is my solution. i'm moving to san diego! as a true fund raiser i have negotiated free rent for the summer, and likely the next year, so i can afford two households on a nonprofit salary. i am perhaps most excited to refer to "my house on the coast" and "my house in the desert". anyone care to visit me now?
