Want: Chelsea Clinton's hat

It's so chic...

I Bought Books: Jane Austen, Stephen Chbosky

Sense and Sensibility, because I wanted to read it after finishing Pride and Prejudice and realized whoever borrowed my copy (I really need to start keeping track of who I lend books to) never returned it.

Autographed copy of Perks of Being a Wallflower--because everyone tells me I need to read it and I figured if I'm going to buy it why not an autographed copy.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something green?

Would you wear green to your wedding? Oscar de la Renta included this piece in his Spring 2011 bridal collection. I love the skirt (the top not so much).

You know I would =)

Rich Peoples Organs are a Delicacy

They'd be free range rich people.

Let's all eat a little meal called justice, friends.

Cave Houses in Cappadocia, Turkey

"The first period of settlement in Göreme goes back to the Roman period. The Yusuf Koç, Ortahane, Durmus Kadir and Bezirhane churches in Göreme, houses and churches carved into rocks in the Uzundere, Bağıldere and Zemi Valleys are all carriers of history that we can see today. The Göreme Open Air Museum is the most visited site of the monastic communities in Cappadocia (see Churches of Göreme, Turkey) and is one of the most famous sites in central Turkey. The complex contains more than 30 rock-carved churches and chapels, some of them have superb frescoes inside, dating from the 9th to the 11th centuries."

I really want to visit these some day. But I want to see the Anasazi houses in New Mexico first.

Want: Halley 4150 LED Strip Lighting from Vibia Designs

I need a yard to light up first, but I love the look of these lights.

Stuff I'm looking at today: Tab Candy, Sustainable Prefabs, Julian Koenig and Chrome Experiments

Firefox Tab Candy
Mozilla's new "Tab Candy" seems like an awesome fix to the problem of crammed tab browsing (the Boyan always gets mad at me for having a million tabs open), but the question still remains, "Is is as fast or faster than chrome?"

Method Homes
Amazing pre-fab sustainable homes from Method Homes.

This American Life: 383 Origin Story
If you've been watching Mad Men some of this story might sound familiar. Real life Mad Men fighting for recognition for some of America's most iconic advertising campaigns on This American Life.
"TAL producer Sarah Koenig tells the story of her father, Julian Koenig, the legendary advertising copywriter whose work includes the slogan “Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking” and Volkswagen’s “Think Small” ads. For years Sarah has heard her dad accuse a former partner of stealing some of his best ideas, but until recently she never paid much attention.Then she started asking her dad for details of this fight for his legacy, and what she learned surprised her. "

Chrome Experiments: Harmony
Playing with HTML 5. This Chrome experiment is fun, creative, and highly addicting.

Picking up after my AT-AT is the dumps, but I love him

Great video by Patrick Boivin. Via my friend at shape+colour.
