Amazing Deal!

This Lands End quilted jacket is only $29.99, that's just insane. I might HAVE to buy it.

Kitty Wigs!

I can't wait for Snarky Malarky's new site Kitty Wigs. Launching in December. Here's a sneak preview of a photo by Allison V. Smith.

Gift Guide

I've had a bit of trouble getting back into things since office also moved so I'm a bit discombobulated. Here's a great gift guide from Design Sponge. I'd skip all the way down to Gifts under $25 but if you have more $ than me, of course look at the gifts under $100 and $50. Happy shopping!

How big is your (my) baby?

I love this real world (food related of course) illustration of baby size on the BabyCenter website.

4 Weeks (poppy seed)

7 Weeks (blueberry)

11 Weeks (fig)

19 Weeks, where I am now (large heirloom tomato)

Ingrid Michaelson

Thanks to my sister for the baby mix which had this great song by Ingrid Michaelson on it. She reminds me a bit of Kate Nash.

Mallomar Season

Yes people, it's that time of year again, the season of Mallomars. Only sold between October and March these treats are best eaten frozen. My father says, put them in the car when it's 20 degrees or below and then eat them but I say the freezer works just as well. Get em while they last...if they sell them where you live. According to the NY Times 70% of mallomars are bought in NY (which leads me to believe that most are sold there). Let me know if you see them (or frogurt, see past entry) in Massachusetts.

It seems like I'm starting to get cravings and none of them are sad.

Forty Carrots

I was finally able to get a little (but not enough) of the frozen yogurt I've been craving from Forty Carrots at Bloomingdales in NY this weekend. We have Bloomingdales in Boston...why no yogurt? See how good this yogurt is in this NY Times article and follow Food and Whine's quest for the perfect treat.

I'm sorry Anthropologie, but you got it SO wrong this time.

One Laptop Per Child

I read this morning that these will be mass produced in China. Um, no offense to China but perhaps that country is not the best place to make things for children right now.

Woman Takes Hammer to Comcast Office

I can totally relate. Michael and I got the “Triple Play” service and experienced a horrible, horrible internet connection…think no connection. After many phone calls we got someone to come out to the house. The technician told us that our wireless wasn’t working for a few reasons. First, perhaps our computer was not close enough to the router…um, what’s the point of wireless if we need to be next to to router? Second, the connection wasn’t working because of the material our house is made of (that would be wood). I let that technician go home, without the hammer in his head. A few other technicians came by and there were many more phone calls but I finally gave up. Our service is still not great but I’d rather just live with it, than deal with their customer service. Boo Comcast Boooo!

I love Mona Shaw and her story published in the Washington Post.(seen on Scot Hacker's Foobar Blog)
