A much-needed break from my mother’s incessant desire to go from art gallery to art gallery to heinous art gallery. I’m telling you, the art scene is declining. I saw two mannequins wearing goggles and holding selfie sticks while swimming in a TV in the Whitney, which is supposed to be this great modern art museum, and I nearly shit myself.
Like, am I losing my fucking mind or are people buying into anything these days?
- Matilda by Roald Dahl
Man, I used to be obsessed with Roald Dahl when I was younger. It totally annoyed my librarian too. I was so obsessed with him, it annoyed my librarian. Like, how?
And, while searching for the description on Barnes & Noble, I scrolled past Judy Moody. OH MA GOD, do you remember her? That lil brat. Miss that gal.
Matilda is a genius. Unfortunately, her family treats her like a dolt. Her crooked car-salesman father and loud, bingo-obsessed mother think Matilda’s only talent is as a scapegoat for everything that goes wrong in their miserable lives. But it’s not long before the sweet and sensitive child decides to fight back. Faced with practical jokes of sheer brilliance, her parents don’t stand a chance.
- The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
If I love a book enough, I will own like forty copies of it. People think it’s a waste, but I’m telling you, art needs to be celebrated, especially when it’s actually creatively inclined and has something to say.
Yes, I’m still pissed about the Whitney.
