Time saving tip of the day:
My bf bought me a book on CD called "Getting Things Done" for Christmas. It's about managing your time efficiently and blah,blah,blah.
Yes, I think I've slowly but surely developed A.D.D. from surfing the internet hours and hours each day. Now if I could only get paid for surfing the internet in search of cute stuff- life would be grand! Anywhoo, as I am listening to the CD I think to myself, "How can I get more free time out of my day?" and then it hits me... WEAR SWEATPANTS 24/7! I can just wear them to bed, wake up, roll out the door, roll back in the door and back to bed. No showering even necessary! The bonus is after a few days of not showering you will smell so bad no one will want to associate with you! That's at least another 3 hours of "me" time each day!

2 of my Softies are on exhibit at Gallery LELE in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. If anyone is in the area can you do me a favor and take some pictures for me? Check to see if they arrived safely, push Timmie's arms down (they usually end up in the air like he is exasperated), pat them in the head, a little smoochie maybe :), and then take a pic for me so I can see the show, pweeez.

I've been tagged!
Here are the rules:
Each player of this game starts with "6 weird things about you". Each person who gets tagged needs to write a blog post of their own 6 weird things as well as clearly state this rule. After you state your 6 weird things, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you're tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog for information as to what it means.
Ok here are mine,
6 weird things about me:
1. I don't own a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, Ipod, car, dog, cat, functional radio, or TV over 8 inches.
2. Drinking out of pre-wet glasses grosses me out.
3. Butterflies give me the heeby jeebies. Butterflies=Insects, Insects=Creepy. Don't throw rotten tomatoes at me butterfly lovers, I know that there are millions of you out there. That would be a lot of tomatoes. Let save the tomatoes for some nice fresh mozzarella brick oven pizza. :)
4. I wear PJ pants for most of the day. Polka dotted ones. The delivery men love it. I can tell by the way they quickly turn their heads away when I open the door.
5. I can eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also pizza, yum pizza.
6. I always think I see "things" moving in my apartment when I am alone. But in fact it is just one of my hairs in front of my eye. :P
I am going to just tag Sal, cause I have no other friends frankly. ah-pooty-pooty. BUT feel free if you actually read this blog and would like to participate please do, I officially tag you!

In an attempt to "green it up" around here, I've invested some cashola in some natural home cleaning products. I just love the vintage inspired packaging on Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products. It's a win,win,win,win situation with this one. Supposedly it smells really good, it doesn't kill you (always good), it is not harmful to the environment, and the packaging is great looking!
I first saw this tray in a book called Stockholm Kitchens and today I finally came across the way to buy it (via bloesom)! But since it would be $37 plus ship., I will admire it from a distance for now. This pattern is by Estrid Ericson. They also have a kids apron with the same pattern which is pretty good looking. Oh, and matching oven mitts!

Do you like trees as much as I do? I started a new group on Flickr for translations of trees in the graphic or 3-d form. It is called TREES PLEASE. We already have 395 members worth of beautiful tree images! So come join in on the fun!
No real trees please :)

Well tonight my bf and I were walking around Midtown. I had just come out of painting class so I had one of my paintings with me. BF was holding the painting while we were walking and suddenly I hear him yelling "what are you f-ing stupid?". Apparently this little Mexican teenager thought my painting had some street value and tried to steal it!!!! I'm flattered, really, I am. (I wonder what he thought it really was, but let's just make believe he had a great eye for art) I tell the guy to "relax" and he pushes me, well tries to push me (did he not notice my fat ass?). It was almost humorous. After my boyfriend yelled at him again he just walked away. It was so weird. I'm all traumatized now, not because of this guy but because it brought me back to all the other attempted robberies/assaults that I've encountered. Like when I was in Paris alone and some dude in a furry cavemanesque vest pushed me for no reason and I went flying. I can't look at a furry vest the same way anymore. You bastard.

Tip of the Day
a.k.a. Learn from my mistakes.
Save your paint chips and keep them in a safe place so if you have to retouch your walls and don't have any more paint you can go buy more. Seems like a logical thing to do, but I didn't do it and now I have to retouch my wall and I have to go to the store and guess which color it is.
These are all the colors I have going on in my apartment right now. Click on the pic to see the notes.

Happy New Year!!
Hello everybody in blogland! How did everyone's New Year's Eve go?
I spent most of my night with a few friends (thanks NuNu, Brad and Ant) playing an intense game of Pictionary (boys against girls) and testing out the Wii (Sal, feel my wrath!). Yes, sounds very,very wild and out of control, doesn't it. ;) Apparently I am a fierce competitor and I scared many a friend last night. RAWR!
This morning Sal and I started off '07 Gluttooning (verb, to take part in the activity/sport of being gluttonous) at our favorite local bakery Little Cupcake Bakeshop in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It is hands down the cutest bakery I've seen in Brooklyn. So if you are ever in the area you should go check it out.
