The Misfits

Friday was Marilyn's birthday, we celebrated by watching old Hollywood movies and eating pink frosted cupcakes in bed. Chloe looks more like her even though I'm the blonde, she has that enigmatic charisma you never want to see getting poisoned and destroyed by mean-spirited people.

"The world", she says, "was never shaped by reason or truth but by delusions. How else could Rick Santorum almost become president of the United States?"

Maybe it's true. Escaping reality can sometimes seem like the only way of surviving, of not going mad or become completely paralyzed with sadness.

Chloe flips through the pages of David Wills' photo book Metamorphosis. "Imagine someone like Jessica Simpson today" she sighs, "wearing a sheer rhinestone dress with nothing underneath while singing 'Happy birthday Mr. President' to Obama. The horror".

  1. Kinda true, but sometimes escaping reality only makes it worse, so you have to deal with whatever is the thing. Depends i think.

  5. awww i was so hooked on reading her bio yesterday! and then i look at her bday and realized that i was reading her bio on her birthday! O__O coincidence? lol... who the heck knows?

    anyway... i think what happened to her was so tragic :[ it makes me sad that such a girl with so much talent and guts can go so fast.

  6. "The world was never shaped by reason or truth but by delusions", from the things that's been happening with me right now, your words make perfect sense.

    Everyone escapes reality, for a short time maybe, but yes.

  9. I always want to spend MMs birthday drinking champagne and eating potato chips like in "the seven year itch" but it somehow always passes me by. Maybe next year.

  12. Ohh, I also celebrate her birthday, every year since I was 13 :)) she was born almost EXACTLY seventy years before me, a coincidence I really like.

    I also have the Metamorphosis photo book by David Wills, I got it last christmas as a present from my mom and I'm so into it. The Jessica-Simpson-and-Obama-comparison is reeeeeally amazing btw :D

    Your writing is awesome as always and I'm already excited for your next post. <3

  18. The perfect way to celebrate, really. It's good to escape, but sometimes you do need to ground yourself in reality, even if only to shake it up

  24. yes the horror. and how good someone phrased it! it did not even like michelle williams playing her. wrong cast. "enigmatic charisma" missing much here. just my opinion.
    anyway - great pictures avy, you are both very beautiful. and your writing - you know what i think about...

    Love,
