crush

i love a good crush. i always have. there is nothing better than that feeling. i have, over the course of my short life, had hundreds. lucy was fond of telling me about her very first crush - on the back of a boy's head. and summer for me is all about the crushes. especially august. feeling the pressure of summer ending, a crush was a way to make summer seem to go on forever.

glee.

i don't have warm fuzzy feelings about high school. i don't enjoy musicals and generally frown upon people randomly bursting into song, unless its written by joss whedon. maybe i should blame my embarassing love of glee on dr. horrible. i was skeptical, despite neil patrick awesome and joss. but i love it. love love love it.

i can also blame syndy and colleen. they made me watch it. the first time. the second, third and possibly fourth time, not so much.

i think its darkly hilarious and sweet. and surprising. so, click and watch. you won't be sorry.

mad men. i know i'm not alone. i love the way the show looks. i love the clothes. i love peggy and was so pleased with how far she's come. i love joan and i would give my big toe for her pen necklace. i can't even talk about the handsomeness of all the men, namely don. they are all pigs and it seems wrong to find them all so attractive and yet i do. i flip for dyna moe's illustrations. and yes, i even mad men-ed myself.

Tin 1
vintage candy or biscuit tins. my mom had a few when i was little and i loved them. they were brightly colored and had such lovely designs on them - i couldn't understand why all food wasn't sold in packages this pretty. i have my mom's now and have added a few more to the collection. and its a collection that shawn is ok with - because they serve a purpose. they house jewelry and handkerchiefs and hair accessories and pens and more. and i have a serious crush on this one even though its out of my league.
