good things come to those who can't wait

photo by Urban Pekle, touch-up by Ajda Horvat
I've been waiting to share this photo with you until it was in mint condition. It was taken near the place where the wild things nest. It was so cold and the light so unreal and me so wanting to get a perfect shot of my coat. Wearing AA sweatshirt borrowed from M*, Zara jeans, old Converse and MMM coat.

Vedela sem, da moram plašč z Iztrebljevalec rameni peljati v naravo, med krave na desni in orlom nad glavo. Bil je neustrašen.

cherish the cherries

It's just a matter of time before the cherries will start to take over my mind. They are so bouncy, hanging there like the women's equivalent of balls, family jewels or however you like to call the two round thingies between the legs of a man. Gee, it would be nice to have a crisp black cherry hanging from your kitchen ceiling reminding you that there is still hope for the objects if not for the people. They are from the new Nika Zupanc collection.

Češnje v visokem sijaju. Včeraj sem pogoltnila oba Nikina dnevnika za Sobotno. Mahnjena sem na punce, na vso njihovo ošabnost in lolitavost, na satenaste čevlje ob prvih dežnih kapljah.

ashes to ashes, tooth to tooth

How were your holidays? I had to postpone mine. First there was the ash panic and then I got a terrible toothache. The oddest thing is that a few nights before the tooth situation I was watching the movie Kynodontas, Dogtooth, where the tooth falling out and growing back has a really special place in the life of an isolated family, where a salt shaker is called a telephone and a cunt a big lamp and where airplanes are constantly falling down into the backyard. It's one of those movies you should see in a combo with Haneke's Der siebente Kontinent and Ursula Meier's Home and then start raising your family or just stay alone with your cat. But my week was not all painkillers and baby food. I did go to Zagreb, Croatia, for a lunch - I am a total sucker for the Nova restaurant, they are just so over the top with their vegan ideas, how comforting it is to have a chance to eat a juicy meat-free steak in this part of Europe? I also went on a little hunt for a magazine somebody special asked about but ended up with the new Fantastic Man - yes, I adore Zagreb and the girls are so tall there. And just one more thing, we rebooked the flight to Stockholm, M* picked a date out of the blue, in the end it looks like we will be in town for their Fashion Week!

Moj zob, ki mu M* pravi zomb (mimogrede, zombi v filmu Kynodontas pravijo majhni rumeni cvetki), me je peljal na neverjetno avanturo: začela se je v zdravstvenem domu, naslednji dan se je nadaljevala na urgenci, potem pri moji zobozdravnici, zvečer še pri zobozdravniku pod blokom, nato kirurgu in končala doma pri hipi zobarju. Oba potrebujeva počitnice.
