Being the Boss of the Apt is the new awesome

Don't worry, "Old Woman in a Straw Hat" 1979 painting that I found outside on the street on the way to the gym.

You know how my roommate hates you and won't let me put you out on display in the apartment? Well, since she is gone for the weekend, you can finally come back out where you belong. Right above our toilet.

You are beautiful. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

    becca... maybe your roommate hates it because it's her version of "The Picture of Dorian Gray"... and maybe you know that and are secretly trying to make her look more like woody allen, hmmm?

    Quality. I think it's not an old woman though, I think it's a Malaysian middle aged man.

    thank you lou. a CREEPY, SCARY malaysian middle aged man that bex likes to keep in the bathroom so he can watch us take showers.

    i would have thought it was an old man as well, except on the back it says "old woman in straw hat."

    which makes it totally okay for her to watch us shower.

    this painting makes me want to cry.

    betsy, I didnt want to say it in front of everyone, but a lot of things make you cry. like the time we ran out of frozen cookie dough, or the time lindsay lohan said mean things about paris hilton. you are kind of an indiscriminant crier, so i told the lady in the straw hat not to take it personally.

    This painting is incredible. Glorious. Whispy body, mono-tooth, wrinkles that defy anatomy, gender-bending--it has everything! Thank you for making my day, old woman.
