Creating more pixels


So, what’s on my wordy wishlist. Too many books that will never get read? Likely, but let’s be positive. The words are falling away and in their place a glowing screen and fast typing fingers, with eyes that sink into stuff (stuff = dresses, videos about dogs, bread recipes, too high heels to walk in, vintage clothes from Utah that I cannot afford, knitting patterns that I will never knit, polaroid film I will never buy, vinyl wishlists that grow out of control) like eating unnecessary cake, or cherry fudge that you don’t really like but you bought it in Devon and it’s better you eat it than the house mouse. Right? Wrong. Let’s break some spines and stuff the words into our eyes – more pixels to make the picture clearer.

Top of the reading list:

Reality Hunger: A Manifesto – David Shields

The Learners – Chip Kidd

Remainder – Tom McCarthy

Calvin and Hobbes – I know, I'm a dick

If anyone has any recs please send them my way. Please. Pleeeeeeeeease. My big loves include: Amy Hempel, Bukowski, Hemingway, Vonnegut, Millhauser, Junot Díaz, Beckett, McCullers etc.

What a dilemma

This advertisement made me want to cry and then tell the dog not to be so silly. Awwwwwwwww, wee doggie and a cat. Seriously though, I was nearly crying.

Today marks the fourth year with Maffews. It didn’t start off so easy but none of the best things do. We were going to celebrate with a delicious Italian dinner tonight but my mixture of illnesses has called a halt to the seafood and pasta eating, so we’ll have to do that another day. Out of the ten years I’ve lived in London the best ones have been the ones he’s been in.

Friends for a couple of years before seeing each other, we both read a book not long before we decided to be together, All My Friends are Superheroes; this bit always makes me smile:

“He walked into the room and stood between the two boxes. He looked at the one marked ‘LOVER’ and he looked at the one marked ‘FRIEND’. He made his decision quickly. With sharp steps he moved in front of the box marked ‘FRIEND’. Picking it up, he lifted it over his head and put it inside the box marked ‘LOVER’. Then he turned around, picked her, and lifted her inside the boxes. He climbed in with her.”

Here’s some pikkers of the man himself. xx

White or Black?

What about both. I ended up getting the iPhone 4 in black because I couldn’t wait for Steve Jobs to get his act together and magic up the white version. So, how happy am I to find this Kate Spade cover, I just hope they’ll stock it at the pop-up that’s in London for the next month as they don’t ship internationally.

A black and white phone? A spotty phone? Yep, that’s a winner.
