I Feel You, Homeboy.




I am convinced that, when I die, if heaven exists, my version will be a huge, beautiful library (probably filled with puppies, authentic Spanish sangria, and amazing shoes) like this one:

This is the library of the Melk Monestary in Melk, Austria. And it’s beautiful, old, and filled with books. And I’ve seen it in person. And it was love at first sight.

So, darling Melk monks, I’ll meet you halfway: I’ll supply the sangria and shoes, you let me live in your library. Deal?

P.S. Also, if it’s ok with you, darling monks, I’m going to bring this guy*:

*willing to negotiate for Diego Luna, if Mr. Gordon Levitt is unavailable.

How To Drink Like Your Favorite Authors

Alright, I’ll admit it: Drinking is fun (in moderation, of course. And if you’re of legal age. Which I am, so I am allowed to say this). I am a happy, happy drunk- everyone is suddenly my best friend, and the only thing I’m really concerned about is if I can dance in my 5 inch heels (and even then, it’s not that much of a concern).

Hey guys. You look pretty tonight. Come over here and we’ll talk about it…

The wonderful people at Flavorwire put together a list of 11 famous authors and their personal poison of choice, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Dorothy Parker. For a fun, quick read, check out the article here.

F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda Fitzgerald– Gin Rickey

Anne Sexton– Martinis

William S. Burroughs– Vodka and Coke
