Weekend NOW


Check out that great use of an otherwise boring space. The mural reads "Be Born Again" and is actually an ad for a plastic surgeon! Well done, Dr. Kim. Well done. I would totally power walk through a lobby to this elevator to be the person who gets to push the button.

Things on the agenda this weekend
-Oldies night at one of my favorite Mission spots.
Sam Cooke and a gin&tonic, what could be better?

-Sleep, please.

-Sunshine, please oh please oh please.

-A charity drag show if I am feeling extra ambitious [attending it, not performing. obvi.]

-A workshop on growing succulents and vertical gardens with the good people at Flora Grubb.
I cannot wait!

Have a sunny, restful weekend, friends.

Never Stop Dumplin'


Now I won't make you do anything you don't want, honey, but I promise you this: start saying that word outloud, over and over again, and you can't help but smile.

dum puh lin

You start to take on a sort of cartoony, elfin voice. (amiright??)
It's a joyful, plump little word, almost as joyful as the act of actually eating dumplings.

Today, some coworkers and I escaped the premises and had a Day O' Dumplings over at Bamboo Garden. And man, did we eat dumplings. I mean, we had soup dumplings. We had seafood dumplings. We ate dumplings until we felt like big dumplings.

Stellar, quick service (free dessert from our pleasantly chatty waitress) and then we dumpling-rolled on back to the office to suffer dumpling-induced comas.

I love 'em. Mostly mythical ones.

Gnomes, for the most part.

This guy, from the 1995 classic film, "To Catch a Yeti."
My sisters and I watched the VHS on the daily from 1995-1998.


Which brings me to my #1 Critter love: FURBIES.
Furbies bring peace and good tidings wherever they go.
Furbies are my spirit animal.

This is me wearing a furby costume, and I obviously am in heaven.

So it should come as no surprise that this new Honda commercial has me absolutely FIENDING for a Civic. [Officially, as a marketer, I do not think this is effective marketing, but unofficially, I just love it.]

GOOD LORD that beast is cute.

Happy Friday.
