This Mila Kunis week (see: Al's lovely posts!) is going to be briefly interrupted by the celebration of the fact that if Miss Anais hadn't died in the 1970s, she'd, 104 years old! oh Anais, if I could only bake you a cake with soooo many candles. then I wouldn't be writing this blog anymore; I'd have a job on the Food Network.

you should all give her a go at some point. my favorite female writer ever ever ever. her writing is one of the most vivid things I've ever encountered in the literary world. she's best remembered for

a.) her erotica
b.) her diaries
c.) her relationship with that profane so American genius Henry Miller (whose work inspired Kerouac and others etc and the Tropic of Cancer wasn't legally available in America until the 1960s).
d.) her obsession with June, Henry's beautiful wife. this both a book (her most famous diary, probably) and an insanely hot movie with Uma Thurman. Kevin Spacey's also in it but who cares.

she was not bisexual, contrary to popular belief. shrug!

one thing about Anais: she celebrated the cult of the individual. and for that- the fact that above everything, she was true to herself, is one reason to revere Miss Nin, who lived in Spain and France but died a naturalized American citizen.

here is a site of collected memories of her by fellow writers, et al.

here's an interview in FRENCH!


If what Proust says is true, that happiness is the absence of fever, then I will never know happiness.
For I am possessed by a fever for knowledge, experience, and creation. -Anais Nin


  1. I once tried to fap to her erotica. True story. My kindle will never be the same.

  2. god, I'm not surprised. my sister sent me this email I WANT A KINDLE and I said I'm not buying you one and her response was I KNOW THAT MORON

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it
