What's intoxicating, inspiring and smokes like a dream with no hangover...?
Miss Absinthe Deluxe at the Farmacy!
I got the honor of naming this sweet legal herb after Mr. F won their monthly raffle, which was naming rights to their newest strain, and he generously gave it to me.
A little history: For the most part of my first 30 years, I suffered from debilitating insomnia, and I tried absolutely everything natural and unnatural in order to live some semblance of a "normal" life, and NOTHING worked; most didn't work while having terrible side-effects that were worse than not sleeping. So when Mr. F suggested I give marijuana a try, I said What the hell, why not? And that night was the first good nights sleep I ever had with absolutely no side-effects or hangover. I got my legal marijuana prescription in 2007 and have been asleep by 11 and up by 7 ever since, giving me (pardon the dramatic language) a new lease on life. Needless to say, I'm a huge advocate for the complete legalization of an herb that has so many medicinal purposes that I have witnessed first-hand, in addition to the positive effect is has had on my life.
Getting my own little strain is just icing on this yummy green cupcake!

The colors of this groovy original painting caught my eye at Out of the Closet and for $7 the little masterpiece was made mine. I realized that all five paintings I've collected, over the past few years, were specifically painted for someone, not for sale, yet they all ended up at garage sales or thrift stores. I think these artists need better friends.

Back in 1999, I cut out and saved an article about Ferragamo reissuing a Maryjane flat originally designed for Audrey Hepburn in 1957, as a tribute to the actress for her
70th birthday. Fast-forward 14 years et voila! I find the black suede version at
Crossroads Trader, in brand-new condition, and ONLY $42! Mis-labled as two sizes larger, I felt like Cinderella as I still tried them on AND they fit my feet perfectly.
Cue happy dance a la Funny Face.
I have two binders full of fashion wishes.
Fingers crossed... Miss Absinthe
