random character appreciation: Elizabeth Imbrie

"I can’t afford to hate anybody. I’m only a photographer."

I want to be Liz Imbrie when I grow up.

Colin: [on Mamma Mia] I think it’s one of the best things I have ever done. People expect me to apologize for it and I am completely unapologetic. Right now I would say, if you asked me the three things for which I am most proud I would say it is A Single Man, The King’s Speech and Mamma Mia.Interviewer: How hard was it to get you to do the scene that’s used for the closing credits?Colin: You know what, that may be the reason I did the movie.Interviewer: You have no shame.Colin: Yes. I’m sorry, if one thing has come out of 60 Minutes is that we have discovered, we’ve unveiled the fact that Colin Firth has no shame. I am such a drag queen. It’s one of my primary driving forces in life. You cannot dangle a spandex suit and a little bit of mascara in front of me and not just have me go weak at the knees.


I can only aspire to be this badass.

Sweet, salty, and umami: Miso Caramel. This complex combination of flavors leaves us wanting more!

Oh you glorious abomination, you.

From top left:

  1. Boulder opal.
  2. Ethiopian opal.
  3. Black crystal opal (considered the “Holy grail” of opals).
  4. Andamooka matrix opal.
  5. Yowah nut opal.
  6. Mexican fire opal.
  7. Mezezo opal.
  8. White harlequin opal.
  9. Panel boulder black opal.

One day I’ll figure out a way to have opals as a major plot point in a novel.

Yesterday I harvested our peach tree.

OUR PEACH TREE!

We live in the middle of Manhattan! 

We grow peaches!

This is very exciting.

And improbable! 

It was only last April that we brought it home from the hospital Union Square greenmarket, giddy and nervous. It was such a small wee thing! So innocent and new! Would we fuck it up? Would it hate us? 

Well I am very glad to report that it doesn’t seem to hate us at all. If it feels anything, it must be gratitude because not only are its fruits small and perfect, they are delicious. So very peach-y.

We’ve had our share of heartbreak with smaller fruits and vegetables. Cats and container gardening are a terrible combination. But this trumps it all.

When people in smaller towns wonder how I can live in Manhattan I smile.

I have a peach tree, I think. 

A peach tree of our very own.

New life goal.
