Hello, Santa???

I guess I have to upgrade to the iPhone 4 just to buy this delicious morsel:

Oh but wait! There’s an equally tasty 3G design to tide me over! (In red & black, no less.) I don’t even care that this shizz is Kate Spade, who normally super bugs.

Mr. Claus, I’ve been really, REALLY good this year. Pinky swear.

Norway, take me away. Please.

This is not just eye candy – this is eye divinity with extra pecans and a dollop of fudge.

I realllllllllly want to crawl into this house in Oslo and bask in the sunshine and gloriousness for days. I may not have inherited the fair coloring of my fair Norwegian people, but I think we can see the similarities when it comes to aesthetic. Except I’m just not quite this cool.

I’m getting a serious hankering for a virgin pilgrimage to the homeland. Like very, very soon.

More fun with wieners on the NYC subway!

You thought I was making up this shizz?!?! I should have gone all batshit whoop-ass like this on the guy who was jerkin’ it on the 1 train while staring at me.

But – all nasty-ass perverts aside – the quote of the night is without a doubt: “Oh this shit’s goin’ on YouTube, yo.” And I’d personally like to thank YouTube – and camera phones – for doing their part to publicly embarrass sex offenders. Woot, technology – bringin’ down the pervs!

I’m really a 16-year-old boy at heart

I’m totally not ashamed of my penchant for bodily humor. This scene is one of my faves and this episode magically appeared tonight to give me a much-needed post-family-Thanksgiving belly laugh. Every second is piss-yourself good.

You cannot know how crabby this makes me

This video makes me SICK. (See the last 30 seconds.) I literally screamed in my living room when I watched this unfold in front of my eyes. Because….

THIS WAS MY IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suggested this back in FEBRUARY in a marketing meeting regarding a certain cell phone which shall remain unnamed, but which was targeted at a large segment of JF’s key demographic. Considering this *and* the fact that the 5MP and 8MP camera were key features of the two versions of the phone, I literally said:

“Jimmy asks three audience members to play a game called Cell Phone Shootout, where people take photos of rotating images of prizes on a screen. They win the prize they capture on their phone. The contestants always use their own cell phones to play the game, but…what if we sponsored the bit and had him pitch our phone AND he gave each contestant a phone to use when playing the game – which they’d also get to keep?”

I was immediately shut down, told this had never been done, and that we’d just stick to traditional TV spots.

Correct – it had NEVER been done. I’m sorry – when did this cease to be one of the operating principles of the company we all know I’m talking about?!!!

And now….well, see for yourself. Whoops.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What’s on my mind

This, apparently. These words, these thoughts, these ideas. Or so Wordle tells me. Wordle creates “word clouds” from any website/blog/whatever – the clouds give greater prominence (i.e., larger font) to words that appear more frequently in the source text.

So do those words represent my general state o’ mind? You decide.

T-giving dessert dilemma

Oh boy. As if I needed to unearth another food/design blog. But it really is the best kind of lady porn.

It appears that La Tartine Gourmande has been in biz for at least five years and I’ve apparently been stone-cold passed out under the Fremont Troll. It reminds me of my all-time favorite food blog, Canelle et Vanille. But hey, there’s always room for a third. Menage a food trois.

However, LTG blogger Beatrice has introduced a question mark in my Thanksgiving preparations. That spiced apple and kasha crumble is just screaming for a starring role in the culinary line-up. I was planning to whip up Jen Worick’s lux-a-droolworthy sweet potato cheesecake, but something tells me my father’s arteries – and my ass – would favor fruity goodness.

Such a delicious decision.
