I should probably explain this at the beginning of every TILT for newcomers. Every week on Thursday, I list off some of the things I loved that week (hence, Things I Love Thursday) and want to share or remember. Whether they are things that happened, conversations I had, articles or blog posts I read, pictures I was keen on, songs I heart or whathaveyou, it’s just a short rundown of things that made me happy. This week has been a very long and lonely one for me -the completely opposite of what was going on during my last TILT in which I was very un-lonely and therefore it went by much too quickly. I find that it’s weeks like this in which most things seem like such a bummer that putting together my TILTs help the most, to remind me of all the GOOD stuff that there still is in my life, even when I feel like the best things are halfway (or all the way) across the world.
♥ My roommate said “She’s depressed” and I thought she said “cheese to breast.” Hearing aids, anyone?
♥ Got my tickets to see Kim Boekbinder! She’s pre-selling shows on kickstarter, which I think is genius. If you live in Seattle, you need to buy your tickets now – our city is lagging behind! She’s also doing shows in lots of other cities across the country, go check her out in all her guitar and ukelele awesomeness for only $10 a pop.
♥ Anthony Bourdain (No Reservations) visited Chernobyl on this week’s new episode. Love.
♥ Speaking of Kim Boekbinder, and and Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) did a beautiful Ukelele cover of Such Great Heights by The Postal Service.
♥ Got woken up by a phone call from South Korea (this most of all) <3
♥ Did a new haul post, it's been a while! Haul: Thrifty Goodwill Goodness!
♥ If you’ve been here before, you might have noticed that I gave Kelsi Does Hair a little makeover; what do you think?
♥ Quote from Louis CK on the things we complain about.”I hate Verizon!” “Why? Did they fire you and take away your pension?” “No… just a couple times it was weird for a second.”
♥And this great article on why handmade is “so expensive”. I think this translates into other small businesses as well, such as mine (salon), small restaurants, and anything else that is not a big chain or mass produced.
♥ Listening to Her Space Holiday.
What were some of the highlights of your week? Comment, share, love!
