Things for a friday

i saw this on tara-lynn’s tumblr, and it has almost 50,000 reblogs so you may or may not have seen it already – but i really love it. you see these kind of things all the time, but i enjoyed the straight to the point + non-fussiness of this one. it’s not trying to be charming or clever or cute. this is just good non-froofy advice.

have been listening to the new fleet foxes album, helplessness blues non flipping stop. lorelai is my favourite song, though montezuma comes a close second. here’s a completely non-official vid for lorelai so that you can have a listen.

these paintings of hair braiding & corn rows BLEW MY MIND! thanks meighan. (also made me think of ron swanson)

my favourite guys are back again!

exquisite porcelain work by kate macdowell – seen via it’s nice that

i really, really, really want to read tina fey’s new book. now. (that cover!)

sushi for breakfast? i think i could. (as long as there is avocado involved)

as if i needed more inspiration for plants in the house! at the old chum tumblr. obviously.

    hehe. I love the stylish guys! :) and Tina Fey is so ridiculous :) can’t believe she writes books too.

    and the first quote-type thing is great. something to print out and stick up the fridge

    Tina Fey’s book is amazingly hilarious. I can’t put it down!

    Emo horse is so cute! :))) And that room looks almost like my BFF apartment – her plan is to turn the space in botanical garden, I think. :)

    Those are paintings?! I saw those hair braiding & corn row images on your tumblr, but had no idea they were PAINTINGS!… ah, wow. Beyond impressed.

    awesome stuff! love the plants pic!

    And I have an idea for your blog- could you title your pictures so the title is closer to the picture?

    Just a thought.

    I really enjoy your blog.

      gia, not really sure what you mean? i kind of like the spacing as it is…

        oh ok, I look at the pic first, then I tend to look at the description below, but it’s above.. Just a thought. I really love your interesting and intelligent blog though.

    emo pony reminds me of my super-emo dog! he puts his head on the windowsill in our bedroom and stares out at the new york skyline … and sighs. not kidding!!

    Where did you get the new fleet foxes album from, can’t seem to find it on itunes or Go?

    • Miss Moss Monday 11 April, 2011 at 9:43 am #

      it isn’t out yet… (sneaky internetting)

      it will be released may 3rd.

    Woah woah hold the phone, you have the new Fleet Foxes album already? I must go do some internet skulking immediately.

    I’m halfway through Bossypants and it is great! I have been reading it before I fall asleep every night, but it’s a page-turner, so I end up staying awake longer than anticipated. I highly recommend buying it. It’s hilarious!

    great advice in the 50 ways that says leave work early (with permission)! i love working a few extra hours during the week & then taking leave a few hours early one afternoon, especially in the summer!
