Eric!

I love you!  When I search for you on google, the text completion thing immediately assumes  I want to know if you are married, so it looks like lots of other people love you too.  Whatever.  You seem really nice.   I also love your blog and I hope you have a nice weekend.

I am wearing a suit today

with one comment

and not because I have to.  It’s totally by choice.  I think my salmon colored socks complete the look:

 

what, me worry?

what, me worry?

 

After putting a total stop to shopping on February 1, I’ve been really fond of wearing the exact same things over and over and over again.  I have about 4-5 outfits, and I just rotate through.  Most of them, even the work ones, are pretty shlubby.  But here I am, dressed like a fancy-pants!  Except for the grey american apparel t-shirt I slept in last night. 

 Once a schlub, blah blah blah. 

I almost cried the first time I saw myself in a suit, in the dressing room of a Tommy Hilfiger store in White Plains.  Ahhhhh, times have changed.  Now I am one of the corporate elite!  Or more like one of their slaves.  Anyway, my suit is black, and definitely not as cool as the white hot suit-y  below.  But this picture has me wondering what if I added a Neil Young hat…

art from air jordans

with one comment

while eating jambalaya (happy mardi gras) and staring at my shoes (I’m taking a lunch break), I was reminded of Brian Jungen’s Prototypes for New Understanding masks, made from air jordans and sometimes human hair.

he also does some cool things with plastic chairs.  more works here.

Fridays at work I plug in my headphones and pump up Rhymefest’s “Man in the Mirror” Micahel Jackson mixtape.  Perfect music for the weekend.  And it’s free – you can download it on Rhymefest’s site right here.  Break of dawn, y’all…

I stayed inside all presidents’ day weekend

leave a comment »

 

because outside it looked like this:

rain

except for the books.  And the guy in the chair.  That guy was me – reading my british lady letters and eating cookies and sometimes flailing about in a sort of spazzy way after being cooped up for so long.  But it was really quite nice doing a whole lot of nothing and eating a whole lot of cookies.

 

Coming back to work after a lazy weekend is such a bummer.  So, apropos of not much besides feeling blah, here is the funniest New Yorker cartoon I’ve seen in a long time:
