L’autre Petite Mort.

Inspired by New York Fashion Week, I have been contemplating my look for the next season. Contemplating very hard over a weekend bender which I emerged from emotionally unscathed and physically not quite as perfect. Not so bad weighing up the photographic evidence of the unseemly debauchery.

Anyway, I seem to have lost a few thousand brain cells and am decidedly more pallid. And then on Monday: genius!

(Yeah, I realise how disturbing that sounds and am quite disgusted by it too.)

So, today during my daily routine of distraction, I found an article on gay sheep. Gay. Sheep. Snap! And no, they were not in New Zealand. More astounding than the fact that someone would bother writing an article about gay sheep, is that the article is subtitled “Gay Sheep Revisited” meaning that it was so fascinating the first time round that it warranted a followup story.
