holy good lord

i may have spoken of it before, but i keep a list. this list entails my top ten. Those top ten are the women that i love. not THE WOMAN i love but women that are wholly unattainable (see uncommitteed stalker comment before). I gotta say that yeah she's not of my age, but sophia loren, while beautiful, ain't got nothin on monica bellucci, case in point these sophia lauren-esque pics here...good lord even the salmon said damn. Thank you Sayshuh. i will pleasure myself in a private moment...

also, i would let a BEARDED salma hayek do socially unacceptable things to me, and i think the fish would let me

It's a bummer for me, but you should have his book

I was super bummed to read in the Times this weekend that Milt McAuley passed away. If you have ever hiked the trails in Los Angeles and southern California well you probably did so because of him. If you've ever hiked backbone, it was definitely because of him as his feet were some of the first to tramp across those ridges. Even moreso for me cause he was the grandfather of one of my dearest friends. This is my second family and not only did I love Milt (and his fabulously long eyebrows and his wife Maxine; they were married 66 YEARS!!!) but I helped them move tens of thousands of his books into storage cause all the other kids lived elsewhere. I loved doing it as these are truly some of the best people that ever graced this earths surface. I'll miss him and miss asking him how to get my eyebrows like that ("let them grow" and "comb them") but atleast I know that some of the places that I love to hike are there and documented well because of him. Thanks Milt and hopefully I haven't missed the services but if his grandson would pick up his phone every once in a while then I'd know!

Milt McAuley, Santa Monica Mountains hiking guru, dies at 89 - Los Angeles Times: "Milt McAuley, the patriarch of hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains whose guidebooks and guided hikes greatly popularized the trails that cut through Los Angeles backcountry, has died. He was 89.

McAuley, who continued hiking until three years ago, died Wednesday of natural causes at his longtime home in Canoga Park, said his daughter Pat Romolo.

Milt introduced a whole generation of people to the Santa Monica Mountains,' Joe Edmiston, executive director of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, told The Times on Thursday.

'He was a real pioneer. There was a time when his books were the only thing you could get that let you know how to enjoy the mountains. His books are the most thoroughly researched. He hiked those trails every week,' Edmiston said.

McAuley's first book -- 'Hiking Trails of the Santa Monica Mountains' -- came to be considered a local hikers' bible after it debuted in 1980. He wrote it on a dare.

'There was no adequate hiking guide at the time,' McAuley said in 1986 in The Times. 'I made the statement that you would think an average person could do a better job than this. Someone said, 'Prove it.' So I did."

pretty cool

See how they came up with Obamas logo. Good logo, good story.

Best deal of the decade

This is in my mind the best deal we have ever gotten on something this decade. Arguably my short life. Yes I know it came at the expense of Macys and one had to act quickly as it was indeed a typo and they pulled the ad. But we tried to purchase as many of these as possible. We got two, one for us and one for my dear friend (name redacted for surprise-ish factor). But this is the top of the line and it's ours. The pearl grey one. She's beautiful, and leggy. We named her LaTimes (Lah-Teem-ehs) for the newspaper that we found her in. Thank you LA Times and thank you designer of macys ads. I hope you did not lose your job but you made us very, very happy. The salmon tells the story better as she lived it, but we both have coveted this appliance for quite a while and were going to jointly gift a lesser version to ourselves for the holidays but alas I think our gift giving would be complete just at this but we'll see.

alas, the magic of Macys
