pouf! it's gone

I really, really want this fantastic pouf from Urban Outfitters for my living room yet, alas, they won't deliver to California. Someone else should snap it up.

I'm off to my first trip ever to Portland this weekend. This is my vision of what it will be like. Plus Voodoo Donuts.

the smile

Had an amazing dinner at The Smile here in NYC last night, catching up with one of my most favorite old friends.

the thrill of the fight

This weekend my accounting professor played a little "Eye of the Tiger" to motivate us before a big quiz. Nothing like an 80s power jam to get you ready to take on opportunity costs. I love my classes so much.

mix tape: the second coming

Who says the mix tape is dead? NPR just ran a piece on Matthew David and Mark McNeil who run a label called Leaving Records which releases albums on cassette tapes. It's just one of many small labels popping up with the same model. McNeil says says the format also fosters a natural sense of community: its followers rummage through dusty old shops and garage sales, talking to people and sometimes making new music out of the old stuff they find. Hear hear!
Listen to the full NPR story here.

bacon jam

I made this savory treat by Not Quite Nigella over the weekend. And it was all gobbled up before I could take a photo. Mix yourself up a batch and eat it on crusty bread with some goat cheese or (like I was lucky enough to be given) some homemade ricotta. It's bacon. It's jam. It's delicious.
