Long Island City, Queens, July 2007
I thought this was an interesting house -- elegantly ornate and shabby at the same time!
I’m going to Florida on Thursday for a quick visit with the family. I’m not sure what my blogging status will be during that time -- we’ll have to play it by ear.
I’m also not sure what to do with my cat. I’ll be gone five days, which is just a little too long to leave her alone. But at the same time, I hate to board her at the vet, which involves a lot of stress on her part. I may ask someone in the building to watch her, if I can think of someone to trust with my house keys!
Last night I watched “Dark Victory” with Bette Davis (whose name I habitually mistype as “Better”). Very tragic, melodramatic and glamorous. Those old black & white films really had an incredible photographic beauty. In one scene, Bette wore a sequined cap, and the light flashing off the sequins created an amazing effect. Watching “Knocked Up” just isn’t the same!
