Egg DIY

1. Take egg and hard boil it.
2. Crack and peel the top and the bottom
3. Blow REALLY hard through the top of the egg.

It's true. Here are the shattered remains of the shells.
try it yourself. You can't stop blowing.

Sweater Thursday Thanksgiving Style

Thanksgiving comes only once a year, so pig roasting is obviously a must. There will be more posts to follow on the pig, but at this very moment the aroma of piglet can be smelled from at least a block away. It smells of deliciousness. Don't be jealous. Or do, it's your call.

This sweater belongs to one W. H. Barnebey. It is a light gappy sweater, which is good because the roasting area is quite warm. I had it on backwards to highlight my devil may care sweater wearing habits. In this picture, Whitney is taking care of business and I am just trying to look pretty.

I found this on post secret today. I found it quite disturbing. Maybe you do too. Who does that? I am sure someone would have sex with her without a condom on. Maybe not this guy, but somebody.
What's the back story here? Is this her roommate that she is obsessed with and now has his throw away semen love child? Is this her brother or father, in some sort of freaky incestuous triste? The possibilities are really endless.

the Big V

This sweater is not a particularly good look for me. Regardless, I needed a sweater for today, so I am wearing it and now receiving weird looks at work. Thanks. I usually enjoy wearing the sweater/ buttondown shirt combo, but this sweater seems to have stretched out beyond recognition. I got it at the GAP, in an airport. I think that speaks to my consumerism, that I am willing to shop at exorbitant prices just to be able to purchase something when I am bored.

A Shoe and A Do

Well, since she really wants me to follow her lead in a more organized format, I am pairing this delightful shoe with who I would do.
Here is my shoe:
No, that isn't a camera trick. Yes I can actually do that. No, I do not find it uncomfortable. The shoe is a sea foam green low top converse with dark green laces and magenta stitching. I think they are lovely shoes that can go with almost any outfit. I got them at urban outfitters in Harvard square about 4 years ago or so while visiting Joanna and maybe david and haskell.

Here is who i would do:
Michael Vartan, who speaks english and french fluently and was a complete bad ass on Alias. Intelligent, well dressed, well mannered sort of man, who also just seems like a nice guy. Oh, and he is quite attractive.

Who would I do?

Mos def. Most Definitely. I would go so far as to say I would have his love child. I don't have much else to say, I think he speaks for himself.

Magenta!

I have big calves. Its true. I have had to live with the shame of never being able to wear boots taller than ankle height. I understand that they construct boots for a wide calf. I will not wear those! I don't have fat legs! So, you can see my dilemma. I desperately want to wear cute boots, but my monstrous legs have really prevented me from doing so. Until now.
So today is boot monday. These are apparently made to wear over pants, so this is probably why they fit over my huge gastrocs, but I am cool with it. I decided to go all out and pair them with the loudest color tights I could find. I am thinking it isn't so "work appropriate", but I am just going to wear my lab coat.

Sweater Thursday Redo

Sweater thursday makes a comeback. On friday! unbelievable but true!
I am wearing quite the cute outfit today hopefully to make up for my non sweater sweater posting yesterday. It was selfish to use my thursday post as a showcase for my hair. I am sorry. I hope this post begins to make up for the mistake I made.

Sweater Thursdays

I do have a sweater on, but that isn't what's really important. What is important is my new haircut. Even shorter, even more bangs! very exciting. Someone at work told me I look really young, but with the wrinkles and the gray hair I have been sporting, I don't really think this could be true.

How uncool am I?

the answer: pretty uncool, and let me tell you just some of the reasons why:

1. I think it is really cool to order 10 dollar t-shirts on the internet. It is one of the highlights of my day to look at www.shirtwoot.com. I already have 6 shirts, and I am sure I will buy more. I combine these "cool" t-shirts with colorful shoes that never really match in a conventional way.

2. I like to listen to music that most people have never heard of so that I can feel superior to them. The main result is that these people hear the names of some of the bands I listen to and then they tune me out. real cool.

3. I go to movies by myself and laugh really loudly at scenes no one else thinks are funny.

4. Sometimes I relapse into science talk when I am talking to lay people. Their eyes begin to glaze over before I finally get the picture.

5. I make itemized lists.

Real Girls Aren't Made of Silicone.

Ok. I just went on a date, by myself, to see Lars and the Real Girl. It was quite good, in a quirky, independent movie sort of way. There were only 5 people in the movie theater, and I laughed at all of the awkward parts while the rest of the people were silent. My favorite type of movie going experience. One big message: wherever they live they must be really bored there. And cold. So bored as to take out a life size anatomically correct doll and treat her like she is a real woman. That is not just a mannequin, this is the real deal. She must be really heavy, and they had to dress her, bathe her, etc. That would be too much work for me. It is enough for me to do it for myself and the cat.

Have you ever had an imaginary friend? I don't remember having one, but I would enjoy some audience participation on this one.

Sweater Thursdays

Kim took my picture in lab this morning, and I think it really captures my spirit of not really liking having my picture taken unless it is perfect. Thus, the annoying girl giggles. This one is definitely not me at my most photogenic, but I have decided that I should get over it.

I am wearing another boden sweater that is short, but i have paired it with pants which are high waisted, thus solving the problem of probable belly exposure.

This sweater like last weeks, has buttons along the shoulder, but you probably can't see them in this picture. Tough. I also can't show off my bruise here, but believe me, its still there.
