a smurf on acid...

Last week, I was lucky enough to spend a day with my wonderful friend Pamela from our four lovely women feature.  Thought you might like to join us...

Get in the car and try not to melt because this is the temp' already at 10:00 a.m....


Arrive here and discover - when you put nice body oil on after your shower, then decide to sprinkle a little baby powder on because you know it's crazy hot outside and you want to stay dry, you will be covered in a sticky pastelike substance that is less than pleasant. I advise against it...


Wait - look across the street at the building where I met Andrew Henry...


oh happy day...anyway - couldn't show you anything from the Cezanne or 1940's clothing/jewelry exhibit (swoon) because no photos allowed.  I will show you a snip of our lunch.  Ever since trying Salvadorean food in Seattle I'm hooked in a bad way.  We have a good place here as well, oh yes we do...



how cute are these plates...


I could eat this stuff every day - yum.  Okay, get back in the car to drive home feeling full of joy from a day spent with a dear old friend only to feel overcome by this...


It was pretty bad out there last week but not as bad as something we saw at the museum.  I KNOW art is subjective and all that, it's just this particular piece wasn't really up our alley.  I liked Pamela's assesment best, she said...


"it looks like a smurf on acid" and well, that just cracked me up.

Ha ha, what a day, great food, great art, and a smurf on acid, can't beat that! XO!

Definitely looks like a smurf on acid--haha! Also, that food looks delicious, and the temperature looks horrific . . . omg, seriously, I don't know how you do it. I'd just flit from air-conditioned establishment to air-conditioned establishment and drink ice water all day, I think!

I'm suddenly self-conscious about my flippancy toward Letourneau . . . just wanted to clarify that I definitely thought she was a total freak (and terrible what she did to Vili) when the whole thing was going down, and that you have to have something seriously wrong with you to be an adult woman attracted to a 13 year old boy.

It's just that the sappy romantic in me is sort of amazed (and happy?) that it all worked out, and that 13 years later they are still together--now that he's a grown man, that is!

Lovely- did you know they are comming out with a smurf movie in 2011- i'm pretty excited because I loved them as a kid-
I also love the Phoenix Art museum!

The heat- not so much but I would never trade my desert summers for a snowstorm in January!

Maria said...

You are right! But, I couldn't help but think that each of my two littles have at some point looked rather like that to me! :-D

Salvadorean food is near the top of my list of favorites. Everything always tastes fresh and delicious to me. Also, I don't understand art like that, it's just really not my thing.

Smurf on acid, hilarious. Perhaps he just went out into that ridiculous heat. How do you people live like that? I would die.

Debby said...

Wow... it certainly gets hot there!! Glad you had a great day. xo

La Dolfina said...

I just laughed out loud... Thanks, I'm still smiling!

i now understand the reason for the guy's bumper sticker that said 'i love pupusas!
no joke, i really saw that the afternoon after eating at that salvadorean restaurant. delicioso.

today we have our windows open. i can appreciate it sooo much more now that i am back from the heat.

The heat can be a bit silly for sure. We were 'lucky' in June so we get to pay the price a bit now.

That food is absolutely wonderful! I need to refrain from making a scene when that plate lands in front of me. :-)

113 degrees!?!? I would die! I really would. Other than that it sounds like a wonderful day, smurf on acid and all. :)
