beating the mean reds in blue;

i don’t even think there are enough positive adjectives to describe all of you lovely ladies who commented on my post yesterday. no thesaurus has enough words to describe just how truly fantastic you are and how grateful i am to be surrounded by such amazingly kind people . i can honestly say that you all helped me oodles in defeating what i like to call “the mean reds” yesterday:

Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?

Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you’re getting fat and maybe it’s been raining too long, you’re just sad that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
Paul Varjak: Sure.

30in30 012edit Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then – then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!30in30 011edit

your comments (along with hoarding magazines with mother gatsby, strawberry popsicles, interpretive dancing to andrew bird and ra ra riot, multiple episodes of “late night with jimmy fallon”, and putting on a fancy dress) made me feel like i was let loose in a tiffany’s. i’d offer to give you all virtual hugs, but that makes me feel too much like that girl from “mean girls” that “DOESN’T EVEN GO HERE!”, so i think i’m just going to offer you a virtual cupcake. it’s red velvet and amazing, i can assure you.

now if  you’ll pardon me, i must buy some furniture and give a cat a name.

you know, the usual.

{also, let’s forget i ever started a 30-in-30 challenge, okay? i like outfit posts, but i’m waaaaay too type b for that much structure, ya dig? so, if anyone asks, it never happened. there might be some abe lincolns involved in this, if ya catch my drift. wink wink.}

  1. I am a little bummed that you posted the Holly/Paul exchange, because the minute I read “the mean reds,” I was ready to impress you with my memory! But it’s cool, at least we’re kindred souls.

    • bahahahahahhaha amazing. i can agree. but it’s okay. you can just quote “roman holiday” to me and i will be equally as impressed 🙂 no pressure 😉

  2. well, sweetheart, i must say that i love everything about this post. the movie, the quote, and the dress? perfection. i basically love your taste in music and books and i am jealous that you live in florida and that it’s not bitterly cold where you live right now. basically, let’s be besties. okay? okay.
