WHEN I GROW UP...

Sep 27, 2010

Article on Natalie Massanet from The Wall Street Journal magazine
Forget being a doctor. My new career goal is to be a farmer in Vietnam so that I, too, can one day afford to shop on Net-a-Porter. I may end up tight on social time, but you can be damn sure I'll be the chicest one out there harvesting my rice paddies. Aim high kids!

*note to self: get caught up on global economics STAT.

i always knew there was some truth to my friend's cryptic remark as to why his father was so wealthy. he used to (and still does) say that his father is a farmer. I. KNEW. IT.

Whut whut? Like, on the poppies tip or what? I'm vietnamese, maybe I should get hooked up... although I do think sometimes about how manufacturing possibilities exist there.

Husband also inherited some rice paddies in Sri Lanka so maybe that's a possibility, if the guerilla warfare would only be over there...

the few sentences before that made me kind of hate net-a-porter. i just always looked, and i'll probably have to just look often, but man, feels no good
