super slider birthday

Guess who turned five this weekend?

* * * * *

I wish I had pictures of the cake/candles moment but I was using C's camera ... which amounts to something like waving a light bulb in front an Etch A Sketch.

On Sunday we tried on some dresses I'd brought, opened Uncle Kevin's present, and went to the park. All of which amounted to nothing compared to a blue Freezie.

And now: some movies. Again, because of C's camera they have no sound, which makes Stella look like Buster Keaton.

Have you seen this? It's called Grey Gardens, and it's a 1975 documentary about Big Edie and Little Edie, a mother and daughter who live together in one room of a mansion in the Hamptons (the rest of the house being expropriated by feral six-toed cats and Wonder-Bread-eating raccoons). The mother is extremely narcissistic, the daughter slightly insane. They are the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Little Edie was once quite beautiful, and still has an astonishing flair for clothes (making a hat out of a blouse, for instance, or a skirt out a sweater). If you're gay or a fashion designer or the suffering husband of someone who's interested in fashion, you'll love this film.
