Coco Brandolini and Cornelia Brandolini d'Atta @ fall 2006 Paris Couture week. I must hunt down Coco's dress, it is too too too gorge.

"JERUSALEM, Aug. 10 -- Israeli troops pushed deeper into Lebanon today and dropped a shower of leaflets warning of broader bombing in the Lebanese capital whose "painful results will not be limited" to Hezbollah. At the same time, Hezbollah militia fired rockets into Israel, leaving a mother and her young son dead in an Arab village in northern Israel.


In Lebanon, Israeli aircraft fired two missiles at a radio tower in downtown Beirut Thursday. The missile strike, in an area known as Ras Beirut, and the warning of more extensive bombing of the city generated a swift swell of panic among Beirut residents, many of whom recall the weeks of Israeli bombing here in 1982."

You tell me that my country has no right but to aid another pariah destroy a country that has been beaten to the ground the last 40 years and had just finished rebuilding its capital city.

"Humanitarian groups urged both sides to end the fighting so that relief supplies can get through to southern Lebanon. Israel bombing missions have taken out most of the bridges in southern Lebanon and Israeli officials have warned that any traffic in the area is subject to attack.

"'Our aid operation is like a patient starved of oxygen -- facing paralysis, verging on death -- if we can't open up our vital supply lines to help an estimated 100,000 people stranded south of the Litani river,' said Zlatan Milisic, the emergency coordinator for the World Food Program in Lebanon said in a statement on the group's Web site."

Tell me again what this is for? To fight an ideology? To bleed a country by slaughtering its civilians totally and completely unconnected to Hezbollah? To try and eliminate the brands of twisted and perverted "Islam" that exist because of our meddling?!

Oh yes, I forgot. We want to spread peace and democracy. Of course. But that'll be accomplished after we destroy Lebanon's ecosystem and populace. Let's go, fellow Americans, trot along and eat up whatever our fuckass media and government throws at us.

One word for what the fuck Israel is doing to Lebanon (LEBANON. NOT HEZBOLLAH.) right now:


WORSE than bullshit. I can't even think clearly enough to try and dredge up a word more fitting than that...and the absolute worst part is that it's all based on power-hungry politics, and practically not one of the world's "super powers" gives two shits about stopping America's fucking proxy (and I HATE that they're our proxy) against Iran's psychotic bunch of Hezbollah fascists. One of my best friends is worried sick because there's no way to get her entire family out of Lubnah, they're all in Beirut and she would've been there too if she hadn't gotten a finance internship in NYC this summer. Israel's bombs hit her neighborhood today, fell quite close to her mother's house. My friend and her sister (who's in Boston) are both trying desperately to find a way to get their mother out of there...BUT WITH NO AIRPORT THAT'S KIND OF HARD. American Embassy is taking their sweet time airlifting citizens out, and Jess is so out-of-her-mind going crazy that it makes me even more disgusted with all these Zionists prancing around my city holding pro-Israel rallies and shouting things like, "Lebanon should be THANKING Israel for cleaning up their fucked up country!"

Excuse me. Eighteen years of war, assassination, a virtual revolution in the past year, and now the prospect of even MORE bellicosity?! No, it's gone beyond bellicosity...maybe I should say, "officially-recognized hostile bloodshed." AKA WAR.

Inshallah this ends. SOON. Senza una guerra nucleare, senza il spargimento di sangue di più.

Makes me sick.

Subject:2 reasons why I love W Magazine
Time:10:28 pm.
1. The Parisian contemporary art world cut loose - maybe a little too loose - at Maxim's after the opening of the provocative "Dionysiac" exhibit at the Pompidou Center in February. Featuring such outrageous works as Kendell Geer's phallic champagne flutes, the show inspired naughty behavior. On the dance floor, a rowdy crowd wielding fake guns and giant sex toys smashed their drinks to ground and hurled petit-fours, while a wary Princess Maria von Thurn und Taxis kept herself (and her red scarf dress) at a distance. "I designed it myself while on a recent trip to India," she explained.


2. Saturday Night Live cast member Amy Poehler turned up at the Chloé party wearing an understated outfit of pants and a bustier cobbled together from the show's wardrobe closet. "I feel out of my fashion element," she said, eyeing the swirling bevy of socialites. "I bet if you ripped an arm off of one of these girls, gold coins would come out."

Apparently she is drunk here? And falling over...I am a bit suspish.

Finding pictures of apparently schwasted celebrities is so much more fun (and sad) than doing research on how Pieter Bruegel the Elder created a nationalistic identity for the Netherlands through the specific art of his landscapes.

Sweetness. It's all just sweetness. You would suppose that I should be running about like a madwoman what with all the superfluous assignments that are due at this time of year, but I have transcended. Simply knowing that I will be making baklava tomorrow is one of the things that is keeping me up, up, up. I can't explain it...the weather up here is complete crap right now; we've been having power outages that last for at least two hours maybe four times in the last three weeks; there's no longer any balmy beautiful flip-flop weather (although I DID catch at least seven people indignantly wearing sandals and t-shirts today, even though it felt like 35 degrees F) and everyone I know (incluye yo) has a more Hell week starting tomorrow than Finals week.

But--I can't explain it--it's all sweetness. Maybe I should find a better word than "sweetness." I've been using it an awful lot lately...sound like my sister in the mid-90s when she would go around shrieking, "SWEET!!!!!!!!!" on the phone to her friends and then my mother would answer back by screaming, "SOUR!!!!!!!!!!!" Ah, mi madre. Mi mamá, mi papá y mi hermana loca...how I miss them all.

How is it possible to feel completely overwhelmed and wanting to either bhangra around the room like a madwoman or run outside and Ivy yourself up for Ivies weekend (what we mad Bowdoin people call the primal celebration of spring that runs for a "weekend" of approximately five days and involves much intoxication) or go smoke shisha with Jessy at Prince Café in Georgetown (or for that matter, at her room in JHouse) or dance merengue and salsa at a DC club with Silvana or belly dance with Caroline and Jamileh until my back hurts...and then five minutes feel absolutely calm and once again ready to tackle your 25 page paper which is due on the morrow (plus the added bonus of being forbidden to quote secondary sources)?

Ah, me. This cycle will most likely repeat itself in approximately half an hour.
