Peace, prosperity, and paper

The kitchen smells like lemons and pastry and the counter is covered with beautiful little lemon tartlets that are pilled high with golden meringue. Yummy, yummy.

I'm off to a holiday party because people like to throw those kinds of things this time of year. And I like to go to them.  Along with the sweets I'm also bringing along the ingredients for my new favorite cocktail: gin, lemons, sugar, and Champagne.

Lemon tarts and French 75's, are you kidding me?

Being of the superior atheist faith, I don't like listening to songs about Jesus, so I'm bringing along my own music too.

And even though I don't like Santa, I do look good in red, so I'm going with the traditional x-mas colors and wearing my very sassy red and white Betsey Johnson dress and the high, high red Miu Miu's.

As a gift for the lovely host I'm bringing a copy of the beautiful piece of prose by Dylan Thomas, 'A Child's Christmas In Wales'. Happy holidays.
