Ugh. You know when you just get so full of regret you just want to scream? I was amazed at the pictures Skottles took when he snuck into the Divine Lorrainne Hotel here in Philadelphia long before we were Scott & Becky. I always loved the building from the outside and wondered how weird it was something so cool looking was smack dab in the middle of that slightly ghetto corner of north philly. The when Scott showed me his pictures, i realized the inside was even better and the hotel must have been amazing in its hay-day. Recently, it has been undergoing renovation and I am sure it will not live up to its former diviness. A few months ago, someone posted something on myspace about some dude selling furniture and stuff that was once in the hotel. I regret so much that I didn't at least check this sale out. fuck. i wish i could turn back time. if i could find a way..i'd take back all the words that would hurt you....

sorry, back to my post
anyway, I was really happy to find that this photographer dude, Jeffrey Stockbridge, is showing his series of photographs taken of the abandoned building at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists on Rittenhouse Sq. Luckily, I was able to satisfy my immediate gratification compulsion by going to

above is my favorite shot from his series. This room is perfect for a big pile of puppies as promised to Zoe if I ever acquire the Divine Lorraine for myself

getting new things is just like starting over

do you ever go through droughts where you can't find anything on the market that you want to buy? Like even if you had an extra thousand dollars you wouldn't buy anythign cause it all sucks? I do. amazingly.
I am a having a moment that is completly opposite of that right now. There are so many things I want right now. Besides the cowboy boots and bedframe the list is as follows:

Cherry Blossoms cowboy boots from Caboots
LAMB hand drawn herringbone leggings
and possibly the herringbone coat
Rachel Comey ryder clog available at Vagabond
Commes des Garcon Odeur 53 perfume and liquid soap (this is my signature scent!!! and seems to be either sold old everywhere including the old standbys Barneys and Sephora which leads me to believe it is goign to be discontinued :( will i have no scentual identity? Maybe not if i order it from a boutique in the UK)
John Derian "Dirty Rose mini tray and "Liberetto" tray (think i am purchasing these tomorrow)
Music by the flaming lips and also John Lennon (going to do a search right after i post this)

even if i had an extra thousand i dont think it would be anough to cover all of the above. in fact, I am sure it would take at least three thousand.

as Scott says "you're so cute when you dream"

and then i tell him "you make me feel like this (i make squashing-a-gnat-instantly-with-swift-clap-of-hands motion)"
