All Tied Up

What luck! I recently stumbled upon the vintage tie bin (at none other then the bin bins)! Can you believe it? Seven ties for seven lucky gents, or ladies (washed, and free of any bins lice...or whatever else you might fear from the bins ...snakes, teeth etc.)! I'm partial to the the two tweed ties (the grey and the plaid), the pink and blue stripy number is a close third.

Best Day of Your Life

The Mighty Marketers are at it again. Join us this Saturday from 6-9 at Sabi and Friends (8402 N Lombard 97203). Mighty Market+ Sabi and Friends + You + us= Best Day of your life (truly). Oh, and while you ogle that lovely piece of invite above, note that it was a duel effort by Hannah (needlework) and Kelty (keep up the good work you two). See you Saturday!

The Kinks...For Your Listening Pleasure...

Say it With Me Now...

Which wrist watch is the Swiss wrist watch? Good, that was really good. Now again three times fast.Which wrist watch is the Swiss wrist watch?Which wrist watch is the Swiss wrist watch? Which wrist watch is the Swiss wrist watch (color change clearly represents speed)? Now that you are distracted by the tongue twister, snap back to reality. SNAP (and you know it was a fast snap because it was in red)! It's almost May which= sunshine, bicycle rides to the park, short shorts, high shorts, strawberry picking, and ambitious conversations about traveling to Japan. Say it with me now: I can't wait! Again: I can't wait!

Beast of Burden

Hey family, remember Buddy the dog (not to be confused with My Buddy the doll from the early 90's)? Tell me, why did we never determine Buddy's theme song to be "beast of burden" by the Rolling Stones ? Think about it, and get back to me. In the mean time recall a few notable features of a certain man's best friend. Buddy's body was a hybrid of a few animals, all wrapped into one springer spaniel. Although Buddy was a dog, his shape (from the top) was strangely comparable to a giant lab rat (see diagram a.). From the side, one might mistake the sway of Buddy's gullet to large cow's utter(see diagram b.). At one point in Buddy's life, he was taken to a dog stylist with some interesting fashion forward ideas...Buddy left with a bowl cut, and it didn't look good (see diagram c.).
