Pretty much every teenager in America has read Catcher in the Rye, it’s a high school rite of passage thing. It’s my favorite book along with many other upper-middle-class white men I know. We seem to think alike. It’s the story of lost and wandering Holden Caulfield, an upper-middle-class (probably just plain upper, actually) white man who is battling with the trials of adulthood.

If you’re on tumblr, I’m hoping you have the deep appreciation for The Addams Family that I do. After all, before there was Lydia Deetz, there was Wednesday Addams. I think I may have watched Addams Family Values over 100 times as a kid which may explain my cynical nature. I too longed to destroy Camp Chippewa. Anyway, this is Morticia, Matriarch of the Addams clan. Nobody pulls off a sexy black dress quite like she does.

pippie longstocking had the life every child pretty much dreams of. a house all to herself, really good friends and an endless quest for adventure. what am i saying? she has the life children and adults dream of, lucker. anyway, when thinking of pippy longstocking (had she been grown up) one has to take into account how a child would develop their style on their own. certainly for many of us, we wore what was laid out for us on our beds or what came home in shopping bags before every school year. i myself had a bit more input than that in my clothes, duh. i imagine pippie’s style would be the conglomeration of attic finds, stowed away boxes all with a careless disregard for convention. adventure on, pippie.

on the tenth day of christmas my true love gave to me, ten lords-a-leaping. as we draw nearer to the holidays i can’t help but reflect on how they have changed over the years. once upon a time it was all about lego castles and basically all about me. now that i’m older it’s obvious that it isn’t as important as it once was and is more a time for rest and family visiting. these days when i think of christmas it’s very nostalgic, ski lodges, spiced wine, butter rum, goose dinners and lots and lots of peppermint flavoring. so for the ten lords of leaping i drew a lot of inspiration from those olden times when skis were wood, people put candles on trees and strung popcorn garland instead of tinsel. happy holidays everybody!
