Hey Techie!!!

ATTENION: Folks standing on line right now for the iPhone

You guys are suckers.

If the iPod has taught us anything, it's to WAIT.  Something better will come along.  Although what could possibly be better than what the iPhone entails? *shugs* I dunno.  Maybe a built in Pez dispenser but instead of Pez candy, it pops out Reeses Pieces.  Maybe it will come with personal messages in the voicemail from Hugh Jackman telling me how beautiful I am.  OR threats from Christian Bale theatening to chase me down the hall with a chainsaw naked like in American Psycho.  What?  You mean I'm the only one who fantasizes about that?

Call me old fashioned, but I like my phone to be a phone, my music player to be a music player, and my internet in a computer.  If I lose one, I lose all three and that would suck big time.  Hell, my iPod doesn't even play videos and it's still black and grey, no colors to be found and I still love it.  Being a recently converted Mac Believer, I don't know if I'll get to point where I become a Steve Jobs groupie and believe everything he makes is gold. Nah.  I like my Verizon phone just fine.


I was really hoping it wasn't this...

Investigators believe Benoit, (pronounced ben-WAH) killed his wife and son over the weekend and then himself sometime Monday.

God damn! I mean seriously, what the fuck??? I'm really in shock. There were a couple of moments watching Raw last night where I choked up. We were talking about how we were so use to watching Chris Benoit every week that we took it for granted, he wasn't going anywhere.  Man. It's always disturbing to hear a story about someone killing their family but this is just too crazy.  He was TOO good for Vince McMahon's sideshow circus he calls "Sports Entertainment".  He was legit, not some character with witty one liners.  He was really damn good and skillful.  You hear these stories about these guys getting addicted to painkillers because they're pushed night after night to put their bodies through some pretty insane shit.  Wrestlers I grew up watching in the 80s and 90s are all dropping like flies and I'm talking about people in their 40s and 50s!  I guess he just snapped. Damn.

Update

So he strangled his wife Saturday, his son Sunday, hung himself on Monday.  What a jerk!


Update

I have not mentioned anything about this yet because I wanted make sure everything was finalized but next week, I'm going to be MOVING!  So I do not know how often I will be online updating.  I'm sure you do not want to hear me gripe about packing.  I'm not moving far, just back across the Hudson River. It's just easier living there and getting around.   

It is kind of bad timing as I am pretty inspired to make stuff thanks to Renegade last week! Magnets, notepads, necklaces!  However I don't know if I'll be able to find the time in the next week or two between the packing and unpacking.  I'm trying very hard to not think about it.  I just hope it goes smoothly.   I can't wait to get craftin' again!  In the meantime, I have a yoga class tonight that I'm looking forward to.  I'm sure it will be devoted to the Summer Solstice as today is the first day of Summer.  Maybe I'll have a good season ahead of me.

One last thing, in case anyone is interested, I'm auctioning off a top from Anthropologie.  It's the risk of ordering clothes online.  They look pretty until you try it on and doesn't quite flatter you (you=me).  It could look very nice on YOU though. :)

I just uploaded pictures I took yesterday at the Renegade Craft Fair on my  Flickr page.  I had a good time once I found the  friggin' pool!  The location was ok but it was  better last year in the park, it was more open and spread out.  This year it was in a pool, literally in a public pool.  Different yes? Overall, no complaints from me.

This photo is of me and Lauren at her Lushbox booth.  I wrote a piece about her business for a Venuszine.com a while back.  It was great meeting her and some other Etsy peeps like The Black Apple, Kate Black, Relish Dress, Lushbox, and Fort Cloudy.  Everyone I got to talk to was really cool actually.

One thing I noticed was that there was a lot more baby stuff this year.  I guess funky baby outfits are hot right now.  Too bad I don't silkscreen or sew or I would be cashing in!

Other than that, happy Father's Day! To all the dad's out there!


Pull 'em up!

US Town to Ban Saggy Pants

Now if only we can make this some kind of federal ban throughout the entire country.  This is a trend that has waaaaaay overstayed it's welcome.  I always hated this look. I cannot take anyone who dresses this way seriously, and they wonder why they look "suspect" towards others? You have to questions what decent person in their right mind would wear their clothes this way?  Besides, it's called UNDERwear for a reason. 

Come on people, there are sooooo many nice clothes out there! So much potential! Show some pride in your appearance!  Watch an episode of What Not To Wear or something.


Feeling Guilty

Poppin' in to say 'hello'.  I'm not neglecting you PS, I just haven't had much to say.  Rest assured, I still read all of my favorite blogs and keep tabs on all my lovelies.  My yoga blog has been updated more actually.  So what's new?

  • I'm still doing yoga, my #1 passion.
  • I still have my Etsy shop which now has some photo prints of mine for sale.
  • I'm obsessed with the BBC News website.
  • I'm really loving Flavor of Love Charm School (shoot me). 
  • I just started reading Chronicle of a Death Foretold     by Gabriel Garcia Marquez after my "Ode" entry, I'm liking it so far!
  • I don't care that The Sopranos have ended.

I hope you're all well, it looks like you are.  Next weekend is the Renegade Craft Fair so expect photos from that. I can't wait! I'll be paying a visit to The Black Apple and get some prints, hopefully Lushbox too so I can get some yummy body goodies!


Coolest Mayor Evurrrr!

The Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg can never run for president now, not that he's thinking of it but everyone keeps speculating.  He can't run because he's just too damn awesome!

There was a recent terror plot foiled here that involved a major pipeline to JFK Airport.  From the article:

While questions continue to arise about the alleged plot to blow up a fuel pipeline beneath JFK Airport and surrounding neighborhoods, some are questioning why New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hasn't had a louder voice since the plot was foiled on Saturday.

"There are lots of threats to you in the world. There's the threat of a heart attack for genetic reasons. You can't sit there and worry about everything. Get a life," he said.

Even though the article says that some people don't agree with this, I say "Hell yeah!" Don't "Fox News Alert" us to death!   Bloomberg has a history of saying what he really thinks and not say what everyone wants him to say. That's what politicians do, he's not a politician, he's a business man!!! When he first came to office, I didn't think I would like him but he's really grown on me over the years. I hate to see him go.


Ode to Gabriel

6a00c225281698f21900cdf3a7c1bdcb8f5After reading this article this morning, For García Márquez, a Magical Homecoming, I am SO in the mood to read his stuff again.  I only have two of his books: Love in the Time of Cholera, and One Hundred Years of Solitude.  Of course there is NOTHING at Bookins.com because no one would want to give his books away.  His books are a challenge for me but I think he was the first author to really take me to another place, giving me a nostalgic feeling for a time and place I never experienced first hand, how weird is that?

So I'm in that mood again and I'm sure I have his books buried somewhere in a crate.  There are some others that I'm thinking about checking out Memories of My Melancholy Whores and Chronicle of a Death Foretold.  The titles alone just grab you.   I have a $25 off coupon from Amazon that is just waiting to be used!!


What?

516237954_7351f8cf64New York is under a Air Stagnation Advisory, I have NEVER heard this term before until last week.  Just say it's really friggin' humid out.  It's so humid that you can drink the air, ok?  Rain is also predicted alllll weekend which means I'll probably be cooped up glueing marble magnets and getting high from the Bond 527...good stuff man.  Here is the last batch sold, I liked how they came out.  I'm also excited to have made my 100th sale.  Later on this month will be my 1 year anniversary with Etsy. :)
