From Every Angle: Russell Square, Again

Self adores London because of its parks.

Well, the bookstores are pretty fabulous, too.

And the museums.

But most of all, she loves the parks.

And one of her favorites is Russell Square.

It is so leafy, so quiet, and there’s a fountain in the middle where birds love to congregate. One day, all she did was take pictures of the birds. And she’s so happy that the WordPress Photo Challenge this week lets her re-post a few of these bird pictures:

And finally, an extreme close-up of one of those birds:

“Mistress America”: Sooo New York

Greta Gerwig is beautiful! Why did self not ever realize that before?

She doesn’t usually find blondes (other than J-Law) very expressive, but just watch “Mistress America” and you’ll see what self means.

In the movie, Gerwig plays Brooke, the muse for a budding writer at Barnard named Tracy. Tracy is much smarter than Gerwig’s character, despite the fact that Gerwig plays a woman 10 years older. Yet Tracy needs Gerwig to light a spark under her.

Ha!

It’s a very New York movie. The characters all look like they could actually live in New York. They’re not particularly good-looking or anything (despite the fact that all the glossies make the streets of NY look oh-so-glamorous). Brooke, Gerwig’s character, is not a native New Yorker, which is why she obviously will not last!

Memorable Voice-Over Quote:

BEING A BEACON OF HOPE FOR LESSER PEOPLE IS A LONELY BUSINESS.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
