much fun was had with kris.

luckily, we were able to keep each other entertained

during the conference's dry spells.

"...bitch slap of change."

One of the funniest things I've seen on the interwebs in a long long time:

{Fisty-come-lately. I know, I know. Stale news.I'm behind, I have to catch up!}

My mom doesn't understand the whole fist bump phenomenon. "Why don't they just jump up and bump chests?" Then out of no where, she fist bumped me in the car yesterday. When two Chinese ladies are doing it speeding down Baseline Road at 51mph, then why the fuck wouldn't TIME dedicate an entire article to it? Call me ol' fashioned, but I still prefer the high five.

Highlights from the article:

  • "the fist bump heard 'round the world."

  • Deal or No Deal host Howie Mandel reportedly adopted the gesture as a friendly way to avoid his contestants' germs.

  • Human Events racily suggested it was closer to "Hezbollah-style fist-jabbing," (the phrase was later removed from the article).

  • One Internet poster even referred to it as "the fist bump of hope."

  • ...botched a high-five on national TV during the 2005 U.S. Masters Golf Tournament.

Calling all Seattlites!

I'll be in Seattle for a conference next week. Call me if you'd like to go to the Adidas store and hoard Stella McCartney threads, oggle overpriced bullshit at Barney's, or eat ice cream down at the market. Johanna A., Jen J., Jenn T.?, Jessica G.-- I hope to see you, even for a minute!

I'm really excited to see my old coworker Kris. She convinced her university to send her to this conference as well! She moved to NYC before we could properly get to know each other. I think we would have been/will be/are great friends. See you soon, Kris! Maybe I'll bring my travel scrabble board, hah!

So long, sweaty 110F! Hellllooo perfect 68F!

Amazing Ads.


Sometimes unbelievably fucked up shit happens.

Monterrey, Mexico

Phoenix, AZ

“I'm not sure a lot of the drivers even realize they ran over the dismembered parts of the pedestrian."

"...the man was hit by at least five vehicles but it could be as many as 40."
