I want to get away so badly. I miss the Mediterranean. I'd settle for California.

They are both so far away.


mrs. parker & the vicious circle.


Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.

Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.

Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.

Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.

--- Dorothy Parker (1926)
