5/24/10: Bonus! Best Tavi ever!

May 24, 2010 at 9:48 pm (Uncategorized)

I’m not a devoted Tavi junkie, mostly because I don’t really care that much about fashion. But now that my work is going to be in this Italian fashion magazine (apparently? I’m always so nervous about saying that stuff before it hits the stands, because you never really know if you’re in until you’re in or not), I figure I’d better know something about fashion, right?

But more than all that, as I was walking down the street this morning, this quote from Tavi’s blog popped into my head and I nearly peed myself laughing. I dunno. It reminded me of why I love teaching in college (even though the author is much younger) and all the great exuberance and chutzpah that young women have. Love, love, love.

Quote:

I have a mild obsession with Prada lookbooks. I tried to go to Kinko’s once to have one of the images printed on big fancy paper to hang up on my wall, but the girl working there was chomping on a Twizzler and staring at me like I was nuts for wanting to PRINT AN IMAGE AT KINKO’S MY GOD HOW STRANGE. Then she said something about copyright and I said it was for personal use only, and then she was all “why do you want a photo of a girl and an octopus anyway?” and I was all WHAT DO YOU CARE THIS IS KINKO’S PRINT MY IMAGE ALSO DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE TWIZZLERS I’M KIND OF HUNGRY.

Brilliant.

    I love Tavi so, so much. I am not embarrassed at all to say that I look up to her even though she’s way younger than me!
