On the roof of the Duomo di Milano, fourth-largest church in the world and the seat of the Archbishop of Milan
Happy Monday, young lady. It’s almost dinnertime here, but Tabs just finished breakfast back home. He skyped me a little while ago, as a matter of fact, to lodge a complaint against El Hub for professional neglect. Apparently, El Hub’s secretarial and gravy preparation skills aren’t up to par. I tried to phrase my response in terms I thought Tabs would appreciate, so I quoted Tim Gunn: just “make it work.”
Today I pretty much did my own thing, took in some sights, did a little makeup hauling, and found a few castle cats living in a moat that had been drained and turned into a grassy knoll. They looked like Italian kitty versions of the bunnies from Watership Down.
Now I’m back at the hotel putting my feet up for a few minutes before dinner.
Oh, remind me to tell you about the time I was staying at a hotel and hallucinated on Ambien (it was last night). The bedspread came alive!
My flight back to San Francisco leaves first thing tomorrow morning, which reminds me — I better send Tabs a text to see if he can pick me up from the airport.
I’m definitely going to miss the city of Milan, but it’s the people and their fashion sense I wish I could bring back with me.
Before you go, do you have a minute to touch base by filling out the Monday Poll? It’s an abbreviated one today.

Good but very tired. I could use an 8-hour nap.
Hazelnut and caramel creme gelato. I STILL haven’t found any Nutella gelato, boo! Looks like I may have to make it at home.
Black skinny jeans, black lace top and the brown “Golden Girls” boots I found at Marshalls a couple weeks ago, which, I might add, aren’t the easiest things to walk in when the streets are cobblestone… I still haven’t figure out how Italian women are able to handle these roads in spiked heels. They’re amazing!
Overripe bananas. I like mine slightly green (no spots!), thank you very much.
Went with an old standby easy look today using MAC Woodwinked Eyeshadow on the lid, Technakohl liner in Graphblack along the lash and waterlines, MAC Nymphette Lipglass on my lips and NARS Orgasm on my cheeks.
“Shower me with your looove!” At least I think that was it. My memory for music is failing me right now, but I think it was that Surface jam, oh, gawd!
Make it home in one piece, spend some quality time with the boys (El Hub and Tabs) and SLEEP!
It’s that time again. Y’all ready for this?
