Friday Eve

All of the chemicals in a human body combined are worth about $8.48 (if sold separately). I have been holding onto this photo for months now because I adore it, Marilyn Monroe reading Ulysses, her mouth slightly open so. And then I stumbled across the above factoid and it just clicked. Do you see it? The connection? No?

Of course I have no way of knowing if this is true, if the combined chemicals in my body are worth $8 or $8 grand, though Kaiser does prescribe generic drugs so there can't be any inflated value there. Anyhoo, I found this fact on the internet SO IT IS TRUE. THE INTERNET TOLD ME IT WOULD NEVER LIE TO ME, SO THERE. QED, IPSO FACTO, $8.48, THE END.

Oh, and I also really dig Marilyn's stripe-y top.

We're almost at the weekend, people, not to mention spring.
xo,

Yes, this is a beautiful photo. I prefer her stripes to the Zebra stripes from yesterday. lol

Also not close to spring in Kansas City.

BTW, I don't read books like Ulysses. Stephanie Plum is more my speed. :)

I love this photo! Ahh spring does feel near!

I was totally into that list of 301 things and then I got to the 7-Up guy being an albino, which I found so ... surprising? So I snoped it and it's not true. How disappointing! That would have been cool.

A Perfect Gray--not to worry. I am sure the corpse of Marilyn is somewhere decaying 6ft under.

Cindy--I've never read Ulysses, either. ;)

I am sorry everyone for whom spring does not seem near. Here the air smells sweet at 6pm, and that makes me so so happy.

Richele--tittle. heh heh.

Erin--But how do you know if Snopes is telling the truth/right? I am telling you--the internet IS NEVER WRONG (until it is, and then it's time to turn on the tv).

I heart you all,
S
