Смотрела запись интервью на Свободе. Отметила что -необычно для России – Екатерина Шульман совершенно не накрашена. Подумала: что мне напоминает её лицо и выражение?

Так северо-европейские портреты 18века же! Типа вот такого:

J-E. Liotard, Geneva. Portrait of a Young Lady

…searching my own comments in blogosphere, as a reminder to myself [“oh, where did I said something like this before?!”], I found this amusing exchange.

A biscuit to first reader who’ll spot the name of [unimaginable-then] our President Elect.

Learn something new

What it the most important thing to remember after 20 yrs in profession? Never stop scouting. Lesson to self: don’t be too snobbish; curiosity pays in more ways than one

Наташа barbro убедила, что хвастаться приятным – значит делиться радостью. Там у неё тыща комментов, а делятся картинками единицы. Ну так вот, без ложной скромности отвечаю на призыв.

Любуйтесь -мои новые офисные туфли. Конусный каблучок, “мятая” кожа, мягкая обнимающая щиколотку деталька сзади, удобная колодка. И замечательная дизайнерская вариация на тему “туфель с перемычкой”. Есть в них что-то от весёлых 20гг, нет?
