Odds and sods, part 8
posted by Colleen Shirazi on Thursday, September 9, 2010 at 6:49 PM (Pacific)

Overheard on the BART (public transit):

Person 1: They're not paying me. I'm gonna give it another year for things to settle down, then I'm gonna transfer out.
Person 2: (encouraging person 1 to argue for more money) ...All the heroes who have endured...
Person 1: They all got stiffed!!

The Rolling Stones - "Emotional Rescue" (1980)

I suddenly remembered this song a couple of days past, when it was "unseasonably" hot (my co-worker says we now get four seasons every day). The Stones released it in the summer, so I can't listen to it now without recalling the heat—Norfolk, Virginia, before centralized home air conditioning became the norm—and I was fourteen, so I got the campiness of it all. "You're just a poor girl in a rich man's house..."

Culled from The Sartorialist:

So what is more important, fashion or style?

I attended a few fashion shows today and I have seen some very "fashionable" young ladies. But, they always come up short when compared to the young ladies doing their own thing.

I know what this season's trends are suppose to be and this young lady doesn't really fit into any of those forecasts and yet she really stood out from all the other pretty young things.
