one of the design blogs i read almost every day is sallytv. and usually, i'll comment with something childish, immature, or cheezy. and sometimes all three. but seriously, sallytv is awesome because the girl behind the curtain is awesome. she knows a lot about what she's talking about and she's not afraid to tell you her opinion.
today, she brings up the recent uproar over a certain new york times article about the state of design in these tough financial times. and she quoted me! see if you can find my quote.
i only just found out about the monocle weekly! it's like listening to someone reading the magazine to you, except it really isn't like that at all. rather, it's a podcast by the people behind the magazine, talking about subjects covered in the most current issue. after listening to episode 1, i came away thinking "tyler brûlé sounds really canadian!" not that sounding canadian is a bad thing! no, no, canadian accents are rad! i like the way they say "sorry".
the monocle weekly
briefly featured is a glasgowegian band called the phantom band. did you know people from glasgow are called glasgowegians?! you did? good for you! i didn't. i probably would've taken a stab at it though. glasgowians? judging by the snippets i've heard so far, i'm definitely going to get my hands on their album.
what? how did i get what scar? oh, this scar! well... the way my mother always told it: i had already learned to walk, but i had a little trouble with the whole stopping thing. as i was walking across the living room, i picked up too much steam and decided to take a dive toward the rocking chair. luckily, my face broke my fall! i hit the edge of the seat just above my chin, right below my lower lip and my little baby teeth cut right through. i got four little baby stitches and one helluva scar. it's funny that i hardly ever get asked about it when it's right here on my face.
you know how iphone owners don't refer to their iphone as their cell phone? instead they call it their iphone. "oh, i just got this app for my iphone!" or "call me on my iphone." or "my iphone is so awesome! i'm so cool because i own one! look at me!" i think these people are oblivious to the fact that it's just a little bit irritating for non-iphone cell phone owners.
but now that i have a blackberry, i'm realizing that blackberry owners have been guilty of doing this same thing for years! "i'm on my blackberry all the time." i said that today! i've turned into one of those people! i'm annoying! and i hate myself just a little bit for it.
i never knew just how much i could hate vertical blinds until i got myself a cat. in the last few months my hatred for vertical blinds has grown tenfold. i really, really hate 'em!
i use my sister's garage as my own personal storage facility. occasionally, i'll rummage through my stuff to see what i might want. since there's finally some snow up there at tahoe, i grabbed my snowboard and skiboards (remember skiboards?) and the backpack filled with gloves and stuff. but the big score was when i found my l.l. bean wool socks! they're like mittens for my feet! so comfortable. i'd forgotten all about 'em! and now, as i'm typing this, my feet are warm and cozy.
f.y.i., two bologna sandwiches and bbq ruffles is a bad choice and in no way should it be considered a late dinner. i can't stop eating junk!
lastly, i confess, i did indeed shed a few tears at the end of seven pounds.
