"You asked with your eyes."

I don't know why I love this commercial, but I do. Dumb jokes crack me up.

Apple? Acting badly? Heresy! Blasphemy! Rubbish! (True.)

"Apple often gets away with behavior we'd never sanction from other companies. If Microsoft began preventing rivals' devices from connecting with Windows, the tech industry would go ape. If Google gave preferential treatment to its sites on its search engine, European regulators would threaten a lawsuit. Apple's exclusionary ways weren't very consequential when it was merely a tech-industry also-ran. But now that it's a behemoth, we—its customers—should demand that it play by the same rules as everyone else."

I had a realization today, you guys!!

I like funny things. I read a lot of the Internet, and sometimes I come across funny things. I like to share said funny things, even though in many cases they are funny to me but awkward, uncomfortable, and at best unfortunate to the average person. Often the sharing happens via gchat status. But in a sad, sad twist of fate (so sad, you guys!) gmail only saves something like your last 3 status messages. This is too few storages to keep funny things that I may like to repeat at some point. I may have cried a little tear, maybe.

But then I realized something: I have a blog. And for the last few weeks I have known not what to do with this here dear blog. SO. You can see where I'm going with this, right?

Anyway, if you see absurd quotes that are totally out of context and seem to strike a chord in you that makes you want to find me, pat me on the head, and give me an IQ-slash-sanity exam, don't say I didn't warn you. Because I just did.

A sentence I liked

"Saved on the page, it captured the imagination of at least a few young couples in New York City, people moving from the bars into the construction of nurseries, away from $80 midweek dinners or takeout grub and toward the sophistication of grown-up dinner parties, the sort where the fall night ends with cigarettes on the fire escape while the baby monitor hums."

Help me plan a vacation

Hello my four readers,

I'm gathering ideas. Thinking about going somewhere special for Thanksgiving week (weekend before to weekend after, roughly). Leaning toward Europe, but that seems to be a bit pricey. Can't seem to find a good deal. Any of you been traveling lately? How'd you find your flights and hotels? Did you splurge or go budget? Is there a specific website you'd recommend? Help a girl out, yo!

Love you dearly,

UPDATE: We decided on the Florida Keys. Snorkeling, fishing, and Ernest Hemingway, here we come!

Everything you ever wanted to know about Craig and his list

I'm not always a fan of the "rest day reading" on Crossfit.com, but this one from a few days ago was well worth the time. Enjoy.

"Attractive, affordable housing is possible and I'm out there to prove it."

Who knew Texas would teach the rest of the country about recycled housing? Thanks to KT for the heads-up.
