Road Trip!

Hello lovelies.

I am off tonight after what might be the world's longest day.

Dog sitting. Work. Web Launch. Mini-golf. Red-eye flight.

My love bought a truck in an auction in Florida. He is going to build a camper on the back of it. Then he is going to quit his job and run away to the beach and surf & sun & live happily.

So we are off to Florida tonight to pick it up and drive it back by next Monday.

On the way via Beach-y time, New Mexico & Salt Lake City.

Trip photo updates will be on

See you in a week.

(p.s. there is a promo video for putt-putt time? weird.)

Magnus + Me

I think we are seeing the beginning of a trend.

Thanks Magnus.

Dark Was the Night.

Dark Was the Night is a great compilation to benefit the Red Hot Organization – an international charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for HIV and AIDS through popular culture.

It has Antony, Feist, Grizzly Bear, Bon know, all your favorites.

You can make a customizable widget too selecting songs from the compilation for your bloggy blog.


Thank you


Allison left this in a comment on my vent from yesterday.

It has so far made my morning. And I just have to say:

OMG! Where did you find my new boyfriend?

He might be a little young & let's be honest, most likely not into girls.

Ok, ok, the kitten shirt & lame jacket are a little overkill. But BOB, Lip Gloss, Bizarre Love Triangle, sail boats, weiner dogs with parrots, dancing in the library with head phones....

Maybe just a new best friend?

Jacob. I love you.

Kitten in a box.

I have already had a ridiculously shitty week. Starting, well...yesterday morning at 10am.

I would like to exchange lives for a moment and be this kitten in a box.

Please, please, please can I be a kitty in a box. Just a day?

Fuck, I'll even take 10 minutes so long as I don't have to hear the words recession, unemployment, rate, job loss, stimulus, bill, package, woman attacked by chimpanzee. Any of these.

And, I especially don't want to hear about people moving back in with their parents because of these things either.

So, yes. Kitten in a box. Please.

It is snowing here today which is a nice reminder that winter is not over.

That means I can keep wearing my black tights and jumpers and sweaters and minis.

No words.

I mean I love it.

Lil' Wayne, Jay-Z, T.I., Kanye & a very pregnant MIA at the Grammy's.

I don't think I have ever seen Lil Wayne smile before.

Totes hella totin'

Last night I invited a bunch of friends over to draw all over a drop cloth. This cloth will be cut up and made into tote bags for all the lovelies that participated.

It was super fun.

And not a penis in sight until the last 5 minutes of drawing. Then there were like 12.

Thanks JFP.

My favorite highlights are:

-the things leah ate.
-the ballerina on the reindeer on a chair.
-the quadratic equation
-dale's crush folder
-jess's letter
-rollerskates & knee pads.

Thank you all it was too fun.

w+k Radio

My friend Shayla does the morning dose and I just listened to her interview local DJs Anjali & The Incredible Kid.

Pretty fun stuff.

Civil War Love Letters

So sweet.


Dear Maggie!

Once more with great pleasure I embrace a few moments to write you a short letter. I wrote to you a short time since and shortly after I started mine I received a very kind letter from you. It seems that all our letters pass each other on the road. "speck" they say "How do you do" or make use of some familiar phrase.

Wish the writers could meet as often as their letters do. strange wish, "ain't" it. and not very strange neither. You know we can't refrain from wishing, but I wish that our wishes could come to pass. Oh! Maggie! I have written so often to you that I expect you are getting wearied reading my disinterested letters. but let me assure you it is not so with me. Your letters are received by me with the greatest pleasure, and a beating heart always waits a reply. I have written a good many letters to other girls. Letters of friendship, but those I write to you. I want you to receive them for more than mere friendship. For let me say that your memory is ever dear to me and if we never again meet on Earth I shall ever Cherish the fond remembrance of Thee, and think of the pleasant hours passed in your society, but let me indulge the hope that we may again meet ere long.

I cannot yet see much sign of the war Closing but I always try to hope for the Best.

I suppose You was a thousand times glad to welcome the returns of your soldier Brothers.

Well goodbye Dear Maggie hoping to hear from you soon.

I am every Yours
farewell oh no it cannot be
Direct as before

Proper Place Setting

I looked these up in my Emily Post book last night for a dinner party.

There is nothing more beautiful to me...

I love these woodland creature Valentines from Delphine Studio.

I think the perforated cards are what sealed the deal.

They remind me of the boxed variety from elementary school.


Ines de la Fressange

Good god. I would die happy if I looked half as good as this woman at 51.

I have had this page open for the past week and keep glancing at it.

Yep. Die happy.

Abstract City

The 2nd cutest thing I ever did see.

I think it was the bit about how his mind wanders while playing with his children's toys.
