so – darlings – we Don’t Recommend Carnage.
heard the play was marvelous/marvellous.
well it Really didn’t translate to celluloid (or whatever high def pixelated product they shoot on these days)

we always love this city when we’re wrapped up warm and giggling with old friends.
especially when we know we’ll be basking in the mid-70s temperatures of Los Angeles in – oh – 9 days ;)
