Same Words, Different Songs

These two versions of the song, Heartbeats, are so opposite.
One is precious; one is playful.  I like.

Sour Balls

A couple months ago, I visited the Exploratorium in San Francisco. One of my favorite spots was a room where they play an ongoing collection of short videos with a wide range of topics.  I captured some photos of one where several children were given sour ball candies, and their reactions were recorded.  Aren't they funny?

my case of the reds

Inspired by my foul attitude this morning [that, and my desire to wear red lipstick any day other than Halloween], I put together some mean reds of my own.

"The mean reds are horrible.  Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of.  Do you ever get that feeling?"
-Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany's

What I learned today.

Sesame Street is 40 years old.
Some people really do rock.  
Some people really do suck.
My closet needs a puffy vest.
Home has my heart.
Red is better than white.
Love is contagious.
Tea is better than coffee.
I want to live in Copenhagen.  Later.

I Want That.

My most realistic dream at the moment is to have a cozy chair to spend hours upon hours in browsing the internet, reading, drinking tea, dreaming, and blogging.  Sure, there is the minor problem that I have a tendency to move from one side of the country to another from year to year, selling most furniture in the process, but one day I will be settled enough to purchase the chair of my dreams.

Now, I understand the world makes wicked cool chairs of all sorts, but let's keep in mind that this particular chair's main purpose is to be a comfy place for me to park on chilly winter evenings and hot summer afternoons.  I found a great variety over at room and board, which theoretically could be my favorite website (if I owned a house).  These are some of my favorites:

I love that they are so basic, yet not dull.  Not to mention, the throw pillow possibilities.  If you are in the furniture market, or at least enjoy looking at some neat pieces, I recommend you head over to room and board.  For now, I will remain in this boring desk chair, dreaming of the day when one such chair finds its way into my home.
