Pining Up

And I do mean ‘pining’ – with Ashlea living a billion states away, I pine for her unendingly surprising way with words and style. As my former roommate and once most constant closet playmate, her originality and humor led to some vintage sketches like “Bellagio Curator” “From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Lisa R. Birnbach“, “Catwalk of Shame“, “Cup, Saucer, Fresh Pencils“, and “Twenty Something Freak, Middle School Geek“. Seeing her this weekend confirmed the fact that some things never change with old friends.
