How I spent my time at Pompeii today
That was time well spent thank you
The Pazyryk rug, close-up, 500BCE. It is the oldest surviving example of a complete rug discovered so far; probably produced in the 5th century BC by the nomadic Scythian people; discovered by the Russian archaeologist Sergei Rudenko in a Scythian burial mound in the late 1940s.
“Okay, this was a fucking disaster. This was the worst. Note to self: Never do a high collar with a high waist. It makes your boobs look way longer and slope-ier. I went on SNL after that, and Tina Fey wrote a piece for me on ‘Update’ where I came out with crazy long snake boobs. The world is so harsh sometimes because, I’m not kidding, I’ve never heard meaner things said about me in my life than what came out of that dress. People are just so cruel about that stupid dress. Anyway, I was walking around feeling terrible, and these two awesome ladies were like, ‘Let’s make fun of it!’ We all came up with this idea together. I did it on ‘Update,’ and I never felt bad again about it after that. It purged me of feeling so susceptible, and like an open wound, to people’s meanness. As soon as I had a good laugh about it, it didn’t bother me anymore.” - Drew Barrymore
