I'm a little politicked out, after all that. So today it is just random musings, because it's Friday, and why not?
Here is what has been wandering through my mind today:
Would it be utter heaven to have a lovely, shiny black floor, or would you fall over every time you put your heels on and had one too many martinis?
(Via Dress, Design and Decor.)
Will there ever be a human being as elegant as Cary Grant?
Why is it that I take so much pleasure in beautiful photographs of ordinary objects?
(Logs, by Mitesh Asher at Photographs for the Soul.)
Where in the world are these glorious hills?

The day I get bored with Jack Kerouac is the day that they carry me out feet first.
I would love to know what Bird-in-Hand is, and why it is one mile away. Also, do let us all Use Other Door.
(From the excellent blog A Collection a Day.)
When I am an old lady, I am going to wear hats. And possibly gloves as well.

Wouldn't it be lovely if the dear old British could make matches as beautiful as the Swedes do? It surely would help to revive our ailing economy. Give the matchmakers a government grant, I say.

I am dreaming, dreaming, of the first asparagus of the season.
(Via Best Room in the House.)
And I wait too, very patiently, for the first sign of blossom. Nothing yet, but I live in hope.

Thank you all so much for your amazingly kind comments about yesterday's vulgar post, and for all the good wishes about the book. I cannot tell you how much it warms every last cockle of my heart.
Have a lovely weekend.
