Uhhh, so…I completely and totally forgot about my supposed “new category” for Fridays that I announced back in May. Like I said then, I’m not good with schedules or planning when it comes to blogging! This has been an especially good week for tweets, though, so without further ado…
+ Juli and John over at Mjolk Shop did a photo shoot for the blankets from Icelandic collective Vík Prjónsdóttir they’re carrying in their shop now, and the result is both hilarious and sweet. I also really, really want a Sealpelt to wear in my always-chilly house this winter!
+ On the day after Thanksgiving, would you consider joining the Carnivalesque Rebellion and observing Buy Nothing Day?
+ Portland-based builder, designer and tinkerer Matt Pierce has a beautiful new blog, and it’s called Wood&Faulk. (Check out the wooden crate headboard!)
+ The interview with Loretta Lynn on Fresh Air this week was phenomenal. If you missed it, you can listen online.
+ The new line of fixtures at Schoolhouse Electric is pretty great. (And look! It’s Victoria’s nook!)
+ This Arne Jacobsen sofa is pretty much the most amazing piece of upholstered furniture I’ve ever seen in my life. (via Hindsvik Blog)
+ Damn You Auto Correct! I seriously thought I was going to stop breathing and/or vomit from laughing so hard at these iPhone autocorrect FAIL screen captures.
+ If this clip of James Brown performing “Night Train” doesn’t make you happy to be alive, then you might already be dead:
Oh, the things I could accomplish with only a quarter of his energy! I love the footwork from 2:16 to 2:46, especially at 2:30. *big grin*
By the end of the night I had mascara streaming down my cheeks from laugh/crying so hard at that autocorrect site. It’s seriously the funniest thing ever.
I actually had to stop reading it because I was getting worried that my neighbors could hear me HOWLING with laughter!!
omg, the auto text link is HILARIOUS.
I have hilarious autotext screenshots of my own, too bad it’s in Turkish. I once typed “hahaha” and it spelled “our daddy”. Then I typed “stupid iphone” and it said “salami iphone”. I thought it would learn with time but finally I had to turn it off!
That blanket is so funny, I love it.
oo great links. Love Loretta Lynn & I completely forgot abt the interview so thanks for reminding us!
I’ll have to consider the twosome blanket for my cousin and his wife, they love going to football games and other Fall/Winter outdoor events
I like this- I had missed a couple of your tweets!
Ah! That was a total surprise! Thanks for sharing our post – it was a solid few hours of our day off so it’s lovely that people are getting a kick out of it, like we did!
I would be happy to support Buy Nothing Day. All I ever do the day after T-giving is eat leftovers and play Scrabble, anyway.
I always feel grossed-out by stories of people going outlet shopping at midnight after Thanksgiving dinner.
omg. i am crying at that autocorrect site right now. you have made my year!
I LOVE Wood&Faulk already, I can’t wait to see more from them!
Also. I think I want to wear a sealpelt everyday until I die, and then be buried in it. I’d have to try it on first but I’m pretty sure.
Anna, thanks so much for the mention! It means so much to me!
At risk of sounding stalker-esque, I love your tweets. The auto-correct site was especially fantastic!
You made my year with that auto correct site. And since the year is almost over, I’m going to go ahead and say you made my 2011 too. I am reading your blog at work (!) and I had to close my door and compose myself after quietly laughing/crying/sholder heaving (I’m not laughing, really) was so extensive that people started asking me if I was having some type of fit!
Thanks Anna. 🙂
