My new favorite couple: Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler

My dad has always loved CBS ‘Sunday Morning’ and I’ve finally admitted to myself that I love it. Today’s episode feature Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler- two fabulous people who happen to be in love. And are perhaps the coolest couple I’ve ever seen. I love Jonathan’s style and Simon’s, too. And they’re sassy and like the word “moxie” (one of my favorites). Also, Simon just said “I love working in a store. If Virginia Woolf had worked in a store, maybe she wouldn’t have gotten depressed.”

They met on a blind date. ADORABLE. I love Simon because he dresses department store windows. My grandma did that for years and years. And Jonathan is from Jersey and went to Brown and loves bright colors and hippos. And describes his stuff as “very classical but with just a little bit of moxie.”

God I love them. I also love the ‘Sunday Morning” chose to play the clip from ‘Top Design’ where Jonathan tells Preston his flower arrangement “fails kind of on every level.”

Fuck you, Preston.

Dear Videogum, You win.

I have been fighting Videogum for a while.. sure it’s funny, but Nora and Drew both love it so much, I had to disagree just to be a shit. Today they posted cat takes a ride on a Roomba and that is the best thing ever. At the moment, Meetza is terrrrrified of our Roomba, but maybe I can sit her down and have her watch this video and she’ll see how fun it looks. She watches TV now, btws. Last night I got home and she was tuning in to the 11pm news. She’s the smartest cat!

google can predict the future

Google knows everything and now they are predicting the future…. apparently google can predict flu outbreaks better than the CDC according to where and how often people use google to search for “flu” -both frightening and amazing.

check it out here. they also provide an in-depth explanation of their methods which is also frightening/interesting.

Little Edie: The Ultimate Recessionista

From Jezebel: “Nowadays we’re inundated with tips for essentially how to manufacture the illusion of an unchanged lifestyle, and that’s not tenable. Little Edie, from madness or wisdom, didn’t do that. She created a new reality for a new set of circumstances.”

She’s received credit before in the form of high-end magainze spreads…but now it’s time Little Edie was recognized as the ultimate recessionista. She could make one garmet do so many things!

This email practically made me cry

I can’t believe Barack found the time to email me before his acceptance speech. And I can’t believe that he won the election because of ME!! Ahhhhhh LOVE.

Stephanie —

I’m about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don’t want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign — every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it’s time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I’ll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing…

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,

Barack

Thanks, dead husband! What a thoughtful gift!

So this is an actual product review on Amazon (found and commented on by one of Drew’s friends).

After trying the Keurig B60 coffee maker at a friends and raving about it, my dead husband surprised me with one just like it for Valentine’s Day. It has been 8-months and I am “in love” with with K-Cup machine…

Comments:

Henry S. Birdseye III says:
Did giving you the Keurig B60 coffee maker provide your husband with the closure he needed to return to the afterlife, or does his ghostly spirit still walk the earth, giving quality Keurig coffee makers to those he loved as a living person?

Jason Phillips says:
Just as one should never look a gift horse in the mouth, one should always beware of zombies bearing coffee makers. Even really fancy ones.

J Campbell says:
I’m still waiting for either Valentine’s or for my significant other to die so she can get me one. I can’t hurry up Valentine’s day, but let’s just say I’m working on the other…

All Emily has ever needed – night carafe

Too bad I already got Emily’s birthday present. She absolutely needs this:

Night Carafe
This set, including Carafe and Glass, is the work of a Japanese family-owned business that’s been producing glassware for generations. Made of blown glass, the Carafe has a spout for easy pouring and the Glass serves as a lid when stored on top of the Carafe. The Night Carafe may be intended for the bedside table, but its elegant presentation and functional design make it just as suitable for your office, study or dining area. Stands 7.5″ tall and holds up to 15oz of liquid.
Thanks Design Within Reach. Now Emily does not have to have 800 cups of water next to her bed. Drives me nuts.

Once you have discovered pantyhose – and liked it – you might not want to leave off wearing it anymore. It’s fun to experiment with all the colors and yarns and patterns and thickness of pantyhose – it’s fun to try out all the styles and to dress our legs in these materials.

Available at eMancipate.net. Let’s try out the new wordpress poll function!

Mustache-a-thon for cancer


I would totally participate if I were a dude, but fortunately/unfortunately, my face is totally hairless. Here is a summary of the rules from the site…

Mustaches vs. Cancer is a two month mustache-a-thon where each participant solicits donations on behalf of their beautifully bristled upper-lip, in the end donating all the earnings to the pediatric department at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

This is an eight week mustache contest that will commence on October 4th and conclude on November 29th (the 56 days of Christmastache?). This is just in time for those holiday sales (I would hate to hear of a fellow comrade being thrown by his mustache in a fight with a suburban soccer mom for the last copy of “Rock Band 2”)! Each week, contestants will be required to upload photos of their mustache as proof it’s existence and as a personal marketing tool for donors. Upon the completion of the eight weeks, the extremely dignified individual bringing in the most donations will be crowned as the “Noblest Mustache on Earth”. Oh but wait, there’s more; a second champion, “The Peoples Champion”, will be the winner of an online poll. So, don’t be deterred by your lack of rich friends (I’m looking at you, Chester A. Arthur).

This makes me feel better..  tonight on the phone I mentioned “we” were going to eat thai takeout and watch Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.. but the “we” I mentioned was actually me and Meetza.  Hmm.

You might think that a new low, but Meetza is awesome (PS whatever!  I can totally stay home on a Friday). Anyway- Meetza plays fetch like a champ and it is also just about our 1 year anniversary of Meetza’s entrance into our lives.  So in celebration, here are the pics that won Nora and me over in September 2007.
