Superpowers include:
Bag-pipe playing excellence
Sparkling party conversation
Ability to turn on/off sense of smell

Inspiration #3

Designed by Kai Milla who just so happens to be Stevie Wonder's wife. This dress is hand-wringingly beautiful.
Inspiration #2

Klein Dytham Architects in Japan.

I'm really into silhouettes lately and fell for these pieces:

These are by designer Alissa Melka-Teichroew, a native of the Netherlands, but currently she lives in Brooklyn, NY. Just talked to my brother, Gil, in Brooklyn. I should make him find her just to give her a high five or something.

I came across this designer on Bloesem, a blog on design. Fun stuff!

These are too cute...

I think there should be stuffed animal versions of these...I'll take the Bjork one, por favor.
USC gets foiled by the Cardinal!

Campus is still in shock. But we'll take it!

Found in Best of Craiglist:

I wish I was this clever:

"Survival Of The Fittest"
"Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels.

Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this "grant money." I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament.

From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one."

Collage Class #1

I'm taking a 10 week collage class. Creativity and glue all in one spot! Yes!

To make sure I don't ditch class, I'm going to post my little projectos here just for the fun of it. The first assignment was to make a few playing card sized pieces with a pile of stuff our instructor threw on the table. Here are my two me name them!
