genteel like gabrielle

Besides being a cute addition to a mini library, this might teach your little daughter/son, niece/nephew, or any other special young one in your life about nonconformity, ambition, hard work, and dressing tastefully.

Elizabeth Matthews is very inspiring to me, as being a children's book author and illustrator is one of my dreams.

Buy it at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

So cute. From his strikingly unique look to those to-die-for clavicles to that intriguing tattoo, who can resist?

Go Cole!

i love super fat tuesday!

It's Fat Tuesday and Super Tuesday all in one, so after having a huuuge lunch at Saladang, here's what American Apparel has to say about today's twenty-something primaries:

Four decades ago, the chairman of General Motors proclaimed:
"What's good for GM is good for America." Today we're saying,
"What's good for American Apparel is good for America."

We urge voters to consider Obama on the Democratic side.

We urge voters to consider McCain on the Republican side.

Why? Because of their honesty on the issue of immigration,
the most significant civil rights concern the country has faced
in 50 years.

Partisanship aside, don't you just love vintage Barack, John, and the Clintons?
