Dear Diary:

Just a few months ago I lived in technicolour.

Did it really look like this, or did I dream summer?

And now I live in a monochrome world.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but inside it's so delightful . . .

Years and years ago we had a young friend of Jess' up for a sleepover, popped a Buster Keaton movie into the VCR for the kids. It was the first time Kim had ever seen a black and white movie.

"Did they live in black and white in the old days?" she asked me.

It cracked me up at the time.

Now I wonder if they did, if choices were clearer, if there was less ambiguity.

Don't mind me, I'm prone to the gloomies this time of year. I think it's from the short, dark, cold days and all the pressures that Christmas brings.

Yes, today I'm feeling decidedly Grinchy.

Tomorrow will be better, I'm sure.

This template is a riff on a design by the truly talented Quinn. Because I'm a html 'tard, I got alot of pity coding to modify it from Ms. Kittay, a woman who can make html roll over, beg, and bring her her slippers. The logo goodness comes from the God of Graphics, the Fuhrer of Fonts, the one, the only El Presidente. I smooch you all. The background image is part of a painting called Higher Calling by Carter Goodrich which graced the cover of the Aug. 3, 1998 issue of The New Yorker Magazine.
