  • It’s not you, it’s your apartment.

    From today’s New York Times: It’s Not You, It’s Your Apartment. Although I suspect that in some of those cases it is not just the apartment that is the problem. [via Joey]

  • Good shopping day

    I’ve been off work all week, and while I had a giant pile of things to get done, I’ve mostly ignored it. Part of that was because I managed to come down with a cold and exhibit poor judgment — Candice and I were craving Starbucks at 10 pm one night and we forgot to […]

  • Erin go blargh

    Happy St. Patrick’s day! Candice and I had planned on celebrating with a pint and some Irish stew tonight, but we checked out all of the meat shops in the market and none of them had any setter. So instead we’re going to have a traditional Irish dinner of no potatoes. (I didn’t even wear […]

  • it’s the best kind

    From tonight’s ground turkey, both disturbing and promising all at once: Soon it will become turk-cos. Also, yesterday I bought jeans that were a 34 instead of a 36 waist. To celebrate this I am being a dork and posting to styleforum’s What Are You Wearing Now thread, which is also sort of a styleforum […]
