I didn't even notice your head looking up at his junk at first. Now I can't stop laughing.

My brother was looking at my Rome album years ago and I had titled the statue of David as Big Dave. He said, "did you know that the statue is really named David". Um. Hello? :)

One thing I learned in my Art History degree is that the art world takes itself way too seriously. Ignore those disparaging looks!

Hmm . . . gazing up at "the package" in Italy . . . sexy-posing with the Naked Cowboy in NYC . . . do I detect a pattern here?

My jaw is officially dropped at all your pictures. I'll be jealous of you for the rest of my life.
