I’ve Moved.

Dear anyone-who-reads-this-blog-regularly: I’ve moved. I’m concentrating my efforts on a new blog more closely linked to my Etsy shop. I’ve carried over all of the posts found here (and will continue writing more of the same), and you can also look forward to/ignore new posts on baking and crafty tutorials and artsy crap. Because I’m … Continue reading

Thing I love #35: Old School Backpacks

I have a total lady-boner for old backpacks. I love their sweet logos. I love their colors (navy blue, rust orange, or darker navy blue).I love the ads that they were featured in. I love the fact that the people who used them seemed to be energetic, tree-lovin’, self-sufficient types who enjoyed morning dips in … Continue reading

nachos

Thing I hate #33: Sharing Nachos

If you’re anything like me (and I’m going to assume that you are), eating nachos should always be a solitary experience. Not solitary in an “eat them alone naked with your cat” kind of way,* but solitary in a “please keep your hands off my special food experience” kind of way. Eating nachos properly requires … Continue reading

Thing I love #34: Anthropologie Store Displays

I’m pretty sure Anthropologie’s motto for store display aesthetics goes something like this: If there is chipped paint or slightly rusted metal, use it. Just repeat a bunch of shit. Make it out of stuff you can buy Home Depot/Michaels. Make the shoppers feel stupid they didn’t think of it themselves. And I absolutely love … Continue reading

Thing I hate #32: People Who Drive Just Slightly Under the Speed Limit

If there’s anything more maddening than being stuck behind someone driving a few miles under the speed limit it’s got to be like, the Chipmunks movies, or Jamie Kennedy or something. And it’s not the people who are going way below the speed limit – the ones who take it down 10 or 15 mph. … Continue reading

Between Two Ferns

Zach Galiafinakis is one of the best comedians – of all time – for three reasons: 1. He hates people. 2. He is so. Damn. Good. At. Awkward. 3. He is not afraid of wearing turtlenecks and unitards. Which is why his mock-interview show Between Two Ferns with Zach Galiafinakis is one of the best … Continue reading

Things I love #33: Eavesdropping

You know those people who are all, “Oh, that very private-looking conversation that couple on the bench is having is none of my business. I will leave them alone.”? I am not one of those people. I like eavesdropping and listening in on things I shouldn’t. I also stare at people. In other words: I … Continue reading

FB_FU

Thing I hate #31: Facebook Status Updates

Most major media sites have come out with some article bitching about Facebook, whether about the fact that it reduces our human interaction to shallow online nothingness, or its functionality, or its ability to suck away hours of useful time that could be spent hanging out with real people/eating food because you’re lonely/macrame-ing/at some other … Continue reading

The Urban Sketchers group on Flickr

Seriously you guys. Eye candy. How bad does the Urban Sketchers group on Flickr make you want to grab a moleskine and jump on a plane and find a cafe in some new town and order coffee and draw things? Probably real bad. bodiley48/Flickr Seven Seas of Rhye/Flickr isaac duenyas/Flickr ALVARO CARNICERO/Flickr Featured photo courtesy … Continue reading
