dievca is on Champagne this Morning

Apparently the ADA’s came into a Court Room of the NYC Grand Jury and it smelled heavily of wine, so alcohol has been forbidden in the Courthouse – a memo went out~

Yes, dievca did ask the Warden if the Jury could do something afterward. No go~

she will work the morning holding a coffee, do her Jury Duty, have one Prosecco before hopping on the bike to get to work for the second round.

An extra 20 hours a week (that includes the commute) has taken its toll. dievca needs to celebrate the end.

Who better to celebrate with than Talullah Bankhead?

If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.
Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.
I’m as pure as the driven slush.
The only thing I regret about my past is the length of it..
Only good girls keep diaries. Bad girls don’t have time.
I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice. That’s what I call a liberal education.
(On seeing a former lover for the first time in years) I thought I told you to wait in the car.
Here’s a rule I recommend: Never practice two vices at once.
I’ll come and make love to you at five o’clock. If I’m late start without me.
And the quote dievca feels strongly about:
I’d rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.

Now let her get that damn 8 year pass for doing Grand Jury Duty….


Show me the $

In honor of dievca almost finishing her Grand Jury Term, she ran into a simulacrum of the money rolls she heard about in Court Room.  At $4995.00 a pop, she imagines that a number of glassine envelopes filled with whatever, would need to be sold to buy the bag. Too bad it has sold out…

The Limited edition Judith Leiber x Alexander Wang bag was designed to resemble a roll of hundred-dollar bills. Made of over 10,263 Swarovski Austrian crystals in black, gunmetal, green, and clear-Hand beaded by one artisan. It was enclosed with an industrial rubber band and had a removable chain shoulder strap.

dievca’s sense of humor was tickled. Actually, many Judith Lieber’s bags tickle dievca’s fancy. This small tribute to Judith Lieber, who died this year at the age of 97, talks all about that – click here.
