Doomy Rich Girl Hauteur

Went over to Megan Abbott's to watch a Truffaut movie and something reminded us of Wes Anderson and Megan referred to Gwyneth Paltrow's "doomy rich girl hauteur," which I wrote down on a card in my wallet with a borrowed pen. Then we looked out the window and saw something weird and went out on Megan's balcony and someone had floated at least a dozen paper lanterns in the sky, propelled by candles (Wes Anderson style!) glowing from within. Some of them landed on the roof of the neighboring building, which I thought was going to burn down (Wes Anderson style! It never did, so far) and some kept going, up, up into the sky, forever. (Not forever.)
