This is the moment I realized I love Oscar from The Office (USA). Other than making zucchini bread - this made my day. Taken from officequotes.net: Season 5 - Episode 09 “The Surplus” Written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky Directed by Paul Feig Original Air Date: December 4th, 2008 Oscar: Here are our final actual costs for this year. Michael: Mmm… okay. O: As you can...
The Andean Collection is yet another socially-conscious enterprise that I’ve been tracking for some years now. As it was founded by a Tufts alum, one of its early team members was my lovely friend Katrina. They couldn’t have had a better ambassador; Katrina is nearly the the business personified: chic and beautiful, socially-conscious, passionate about South America. I’ve gift-ed...
The Book Fight for Survival
Coryn: I'm thinking of getting a kindle (not really meaning it)/Eric, you should get a kindle. (one of the two, didn't quite catch it)
(Coryn and Eric both make funny groan-y sounds to express their disavowal of kindles.)
Limmy: Eric, you have a kindle, don't you?
Eric: I use to have a kindle, but I broke it. I put a book on top of it, and left it there for about three months -
Coryn: - and the book killed your kindle.
Eric: (agreeing) The book killed my kindle. It went "ARRGGGHHHHH!" (makes hand motions for book attacking kindle) and killed it.
Coryn: Do you think I could sew these two umbrellas together?
Limmy: Why do you want to sew them together?
Coryn: So that I don't get Legionnaire's Disease.
(this is after she read out the Wiki for Legionnaire's Disease.)
Limmy: Why are you educating us on Legionnaire's Disease?
Coryn: Because it's scary. It's like those plants that eat you in Canada.
Eric: You know what else eats you?
Just watched X-Men: First Class
and died a little inside when I saw the familiar sights of Oxford. The dreaming spires, spilling out of the Tavern onto the street with Hertford’s bridge, striding out of the Sheldonian - if only I -could- teleport. Also, someone needs to explain to me why James Mcavoy is so mesmerising.
Letters to the editor - Info: Shampoo Free →
My housemate Elisha sent this to me a while ago, so I could read about why he’s gone “no poo” - ie: shampoo free. It sounds really sensible, though I’m not sure I’ll be able to work myself up to it - to be very frank, I adore shampoo. I used to try different kinds so I could give my sister detailed breakdowns about the benefits/downsides of each brand (nice scent,...
Options, options, options. Let the wind take us where it may like the leaves in...– Elisha, on what fun Saturday things we should get up to today. Mind you, this was the concluding sentence in an email titled “PROPOSITION and not the sexual kind.” Isn’t he witty? That’s why I keep him around (kidding). ;)
andrew dawson heringer: thank you ira glass. →
Found this through a sequence of interesting links - a friend of Ellen’s, Kyle, commented on my recent video post of Milo Greene’s song, “1957,” plugging his friend Andrew Heringer, the lead singer of the band. I googled him and found his website, thereby stumbling upon his blog - andrewheringer: this is totally pieced together and paraphrased but still...
People can’t understand why I don’t want to be a full-time actress,” she says,...– Emma Watson, taken from an interview with her in Parade. What a sensible young woman. She’s still impressing me.
The Tufts Beelzebubs covering John Mayer’s “Stop This Train” at Bubs in the Pub, April 29, 2011. Who says “pop music” can’t have depth?
I ran a search on my blog today, and was surprised to find that it yielded no entries dedicated to TOMS, a social enterprise that I’ve been devotedly following for the past two years. This entry is to rectify that! If there’s any company I would attribute the phrase “meteoric rise” to, it would be TOMS. I first discovered the company in 2009, through a BusinessWeek article...

Of all the websites for luxury fashion brands I’ve seen, Elie Saab has the best website, hands down. The rest are miles behind; there is no competition. See for yourself!
