ohJoy!!!!

May 4, 2010

Every so often I feel the need to jot down things that make me smile and really enjoy life. Its becoming nice to have a little timeline of them growing. I can look back and see how what was cheering me up then, has simply stuck with with me!

Heres a current list of things that I love:

  • The fact that the JFK Jet Blue terminal has a soda fountain! I get to mix as many sugary flavors as I want, hop into my window seat, and see how long I can go without peeing myself.
  • Bees flirt video
  • “I’m enjoying this Punk Rock/Domestic Goddess thing you are working recently.” –Frank
  • Vegetarian Wednesday inspired by this post on Salt and Fat.

  • Frolicking around the financial district with Gala, who after years of friendship, we always seem to find more things we have in common than we thought. Like a mutual loathe for cats and bananas. It was also funny to find out that she calls salad dressing, sauce…..as in salad sauce.
  • Cowboy Steak: steak seasoned with coffee grounds, brown sugar, salt, and pepper
  • Wearing high heels to the grocery store

400 Blows

  • When portraits I’ve taken show up on Facebook in a row, like so.
  • Challenging myself to wear a dress for everyday of May.
  • Drawing a monster a day in my sketch book.
  • Sewing custom dolls for full-grown kids.

  • Adorably dressed children, like Brixton (above)
  • Making my bed first thing, every morning. Its such a little thing that makes such a big difference when you walk into a room.
  • Finding out little household hits. Like, the water from boiled eggs contains minerals that can be beneficial for your plants. Or that a candle could be helpful while sewing.
  • Spending weekends traveling, to be completely out of my element.

  • Cat eye glasses from Cutler and Gross.
  • Crafting for a full on care package project with Bea!
  • Finally getting paid for these photos to document that I’ve sold out bought in.
  • Those animal crackers that are drowned in pink and white icing.
  • Waking up and reading a book in a hoodie and under-roos, from the balcony of my new bedroom.

  • Experimenting with Photoshop and Tripods.
  • My new hair that Bee gave me for my birthday.
  • otters. Oh cute little otters!
  • Onesy pajamas!!!
  • Riding my bike over the Willamsburg Bridge for a doughnut.
  • Having a friend that will spot me for a doughnut after $20 bucks goes flying out of my pocket some where along the bike path.
    Mascara Wars by Irving Penn
  • Extreme Beauty in Vouge. A book of unique shots from Vouges most panty dropping photographers.
  • Steve Martin. He’s always been my comfort character. I wish he was my dad.
  • These well done┬ástorage solutions.
  • The Crass documentary: There’s No Authority but Yourself.
  • Movie quote nostalgia:

  • Chatroulette living room hangs with friends
  • iPad…

Forcing Joins?

December 30, 2009

This site needs a damn overhaul. The internet has given me a minimal attention span and a need for fast results without ever having to use my keyboard.

Examples of where I’ve drifted to recently:

Polyvore: Like window shopping with control. The result of the things I throw together on there seem to be the only reminders that I still have girlish desires. Like overpriced nail polish, Red Stripe, and heels

Tumblr: This site gives you fair warning of what you’re getting yourself into. Even the NAME of the website it some word that drifts off into a mumble and a drool. I got into posting on it once I realized you can upload music.

Dinosaur Circus: Last month, I felt inspired to try posting a photo I took every day for a year. Like finding out about the existence of narwals, its unrealistic and exciting all at once

DIY: If a blog could be associated with vomit, it would be through my d.i.y. guide, so far. The content is there, it seems to be floating in a sea of half formed goals.

I’m too all over the place. My main goal from here on out is to stick to something I start. And since I started this first, I’m sticking to it.

Yep. I’d say my plan for 2010 is coming together pretty nicely.

High five, kids!
