i love straws
in iced coffee. in diet sodas. in milkshakes. my fascination with bendy pieces of plastic surely cancels out all the walking to work, reusable bags and compact fluorescent lights. i love their colors and their flexibility. they remind me of little giraffes sitting in my drink. they have even put a spell on piper who thinks nothing of swatting one out of a full glass and kicking it across the...

no posts in three days is blasphemous on the internet. but i needed some time away from this familiar 15-inch screen. plus, i figured the way you start the summer sets the tone for the rest of it. things got kicked off on thursday with a little professional boost, an interview, and some drinks in the south end. on friday some friends from new york were in town for the sox/mets game so a quick...

did i tell you all about how 2 weeks ago i spilled nail polish all over my bathroom floor? and how it got on the bottom of my pajama pants so i took them off to avoid spreading polish further? and i realized that i wasn’t wearing underwear, so i had to squat down and clean it up bottomless? no? i didn’t? hmm i wonder why.
“you ate it all” “thank you” what kind of response is that?!?!

i spent a good portion of this afternoon researching my italian side of the family. i combed through the ellis island records to find the exact date and what ship my maternal great grandparents came in on. the ledger contains answers to “important” questions the US needed to know before entry: like how much money you had on you, if you were crazy, any obvious physical abnormalities...

the new book im reading: operating manual for spaceship earth by r. buckminster fuller. i’m about 3/4ths of the way through and i’d recommend it to anyone who finds themselves at a crux. and as bucky saw it (in ‘69 mind you), we are all at a crossroads in regards to moving humanity along. the overall gist of the books is how we as humans should champion innovative design, the...
