Good God we are at Volume 50 of these nonsense Friday Randoms posts already. 50, people! 50! Let me note the following before I get started: I could post the most beautiful wedding in the world, my life’s best work, the most amazing photo I’ve ever captured…and people would still tell me about some stupid thing I mentioned in Friday Randoms.
So I must accept my fate with head held high (and grimace on my face). Onward…
Dezeen Magazine is an architecture and design magazine so if you like looking at cool spaces, unique typeface and interesting design from buildings to logos and everything in between, you’ll love it.
A meal I’ve had almost every day this week is a Caprese salad. What I have learned with growing my own basil is that the green kind is better than the purple kind. This is a very scientific opinion. Also, heirloom or artisan tomatoes are where it’s at. I would question paying $8 for pretty much anything but for an artisan tomato? F yeah!
I finished the Boilermaker 15k last Sunday. Year #24. Still haven’t beat the Kenyans, but getting closer. So far no pictures have surfaced of me actually running the thing. This is best for all of us.
I’ve been trying to go to bed by 11pm each night. Hasn’t been happening. “Making a schedule will help you!” they say. Why is it that I can be drop dead exhausted ALL FREIKIN’ DAY and then the minute I get into bed I feel like I have enough energy to paint the house?!?!
Office supplies make me inexplicably happy. Like colorful eraser heads to put on my eraserless pencils.
It’s not an understatement to say David Foster Wallace was one of the all time best American writers. Just my opinion, obviously I’m not some literary guru. Most of the time you’ll find me in the grocery store checkout aisle, giving knowing looks to other patrons as I read, “Stars: they’re just like us!!” in Us Weekly Magazine.
Acknowledged and owned.
That said, to me, in a world with so much noise, he was original, powerful, dark and brilliant. His voice captivates me in a way few authors can. A movie is coming out about him and I can’t wait.
I made a mango/peach/spinach smoothie today and it changed my life for the better. If you give me a lecture about how much sugar I’m taking in slurping one of those babies down each day, it’ll sadden the experience.
This next one is for the men: One of my friend’s bought an item at Filson, which is an outdoor shop, and they send a handwritten note with every. order. I want to buy things from them for this reason alone. Everything they make is right here in the states too!
Speaking of companies, I was going to give you a link to a Swedish company’s website that sells beautiful bathroom accessories but my browser quite on me four times when I was on their website so my outrage will not let me type the words. Get me on another day.
Be well, friends, until next time…
