just got the fall 2002 issue of NEST ("a quarterly of interiors"),
which declared itself to be about PISS ELEGANCE.
on an early page - as with other with-it magazines, it's very hard
to figure out what the page number of anything is - there is a
declaration of topic:
"Piss elegant": Most decorators use the expression and hear
themselves so described. Moreover, "piss elegance" is a theme
for this issue of NEST. [the front part of the magazine is
about toilets and their equivalents.] But we confess to being
unable to find an origin for this provocative word-join. NEST
has racked its collective brain, even consulting such authorities
as the Internet, without avail. Would readers care to help?
just passing this on...
