Did anyone watch the Hasan Minhaj’s White House correspondents’ dinner speech this week? His burns were just so painfully terrific that his monologue deserves rewatching.
This week, we had a model decked out to the nines, resplendent with a shimmering gold hat, gauzy black dress and a seriously bedazzling necklace. But what was most impressive was her facial expression – she was smiling the entire time. Smiling is so much more painful than frowning when holding for a pose. You start to fade into a weird uncanny valley and it becomes more of a grimace than an expression of joy. Unfortunately, I caught her facial expression in one of those pained moments, before she somehow miraculously recovered (!) and was once again serene.
I think she must have been a flight attendant in her past life.
This weekend, I may or may not have gone a little overboard with baking (Mexican wedding cookies, coconut brownies, pain d’epices/french honey and spice bread). I also gave in and finally bought chocolate from Socola after eyeing them for the longest time… I HAVE NO REGRETS.
