Hair project continues! It was sort of old-ladyish that day. 1960s old ladyish, wouldn’t you say? I liked it. Bouffanty. Bouffanty would be a great name for a cat, no?
Conservatives = not understanding that Colbert is satire. I can’t decide which headline is scarier.
Vegans don’t have higher rates of calcium deficiencies than non-vegans. This is PAINFULLY OBVS (if anything it would be the other way around), but oh well. A client forwarded me this link, so I’ll pass it around.
Awww! My BFF Christy was profiled in this rad article in Portland Monthly! It was a while ago, but who cares? Babymamas who wear Chucks are so awesome, are they not?
Even though my camera seems to make all outside shots weirdly extra blue, those blue streaks are holding up quite nicely.That pin says “Jem” and it appeared in my house one day. Jem!
Wow. What IS this? Whatever it is, I like it. Upstate NY peeps arm wrestling wearing crazy outfits. Sure. I love it. Bring it on.
A blogreader has this fantastic blog: Vegan Brew. It’s so rare to find people who posses the magic combination of veganness, fermentation fetishism, and what seem to be great palates and seriously tasty chow. Keep up the good work!
Brittany took this one. What a rad photo!! And how odd that it was 90 degrees out on Saturday, yet no leaves on the trees.
I so so so SO adored Shortbus, didn’t you? And I am wildly in love with this dude (Jay Brannan) too. His song “Soda Shop” was a highlight of the movie. C*u*t*e!
Speaking of boys, the New Yorker article on Matthew and Michael Dickman, twin poets of amazing talent and possessors of adorable visages, was such a treat. I have this poem by Matthew tacked up in my kitchen, it knocks me out every time I walk by and glance at it.
Multi-tasking! As you can see, the Marie Antoinette has become a bit more of an Amy Winehouse. I think I’m getting better at doing it, though. I have a whole method now. Twist twist twist, pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin, then flip the top part (the leftovers from the French twisting) up high and back, then twist those into the back twist. Did you follow that?
And do you notice that my wardrobe seems to be 100% Jenny Lewis t-shirts? (See previous post!) I am pretty much a scavenger with no shame and will wear any free swag I can get my hands on. Also, Jenny Lewis is amazing and all that.
Oh, if by chance you’re looking for a math tutor, my neighbor Leigh is the best around. Check it. Leigh is the sweetest dude in the world.
This is pretty silly, but I was excited about this new show made by the creators of “Arrested Development,” “Sit Down, Shut Up.” I Hulu’d the first two episodes (Hulu has taken away all my “I don’t own a TV, I am better than you!” cred) and it’s merely deeply OK so far. This trailer is about five times as hilarious as the show.
HA! For some reason this just came up on my Google alert (Hi, my name is Lagusta, and I am a narcissist.): Jacob and Lagusta’s Top 12 Vegan Things of 2007, as reported to Team Love Records. It all seems weirdly dated now. Jacob wrote it for the most part: I do not eat Oreos!
(But I would, if they were in front of me…)
The thing about the hairstyle is that it sort of deflates as the day goes on, which is sort of a bummer.
I’m off to Mon-ray-ahl (as we say it in my hizzy [did I just say “hizzy”?]) for a few days to rescue my “lover” from the horrors of the indie rock world and hang out with my “sister-out-law.” Don’t worry, though, Veronica will be making chocolates, wooo! Here’s a secret: she does a better job than I do. For one thing, she doesn’t spend half the day arranging and taking pictures of her hair. That alone makes her a better chocolatier. Although…she’s not too shabby in the self-taken-portrait department, either:
Oh, the cute! It knocks me out.
À bientôt! À tout à l’heure! À la prochaine! Au revoir! (I’ve been practicing, can you tell?)
