black swan

There's a lot of buzz going on about Black Swan lately. And even though I haven't seen the movie yet, it seems well-deserved. Natalie Portman. Darren Aronofsky. And Mila what's her name.

Why just this past weekend, we took our daughters down to Austin's Lady Bird Lake to feed the ducks and maybe a swan or two. But much to our surprise, there were 50 other families feeding the ducks. People, there must have been enough stale heels and moldy slices floating in the water to make 20 loaves of bread.

We gathered ourselves and our bolillos (that means white bread, and sometimes white people.) I bought at Fiesta, and moved to a more hidden area of the lake. I'll be darned, there she (or he) be. A Black Swan. It was stunning.

Lovely, graceful, and demure Black Swan, you made our weekend. So, step aside sexy ballet movie, Black Swans were hot way before you got our tutus in a wad with an artsy lesbian love scene.

And White Swan, you ain't so bad yourself.
