it’s weird to be in north carolina, and not in london, for the holidays. it’s weird to not have a job and a silly office xmas party to go to, or some bad secret santa nonsense to participate in. not that I want a job! well, okay, I need a job (can someone get me one please? or at least a book deal to publish my first grand tome of beautiful portraits — phaidon? taschen? steidl? someone, please! has anyone self-published with lulu or any other company?) this photo is of pam’s homemade LP sleeve gift boxes and the berry jones dining room festiveness during xmas ’06.
