10.25.04 OVERHEARD
Scenario: The best parts of a conversation overheard in Starbucks. An older Indian consultant reviews his findings with a younger man who is a manager. The older man talks very loudly, and the younger man nods.

"You need to spend more time with your employees. You have to go to this wheel spinning class everyone is attending, know what the buzz is about. Pay more attention. Otherwise, you will get sunk! You will look a fool."

"This guy, he is a very mature guy. You say, "these are the parameters, this is when I need this," and it is done. He is measured; he thinks things through. There is one obstacle to our success. It is called haste. And haste, as we all know, is waste."

10.18.04 STUPEFIED
This weekend, I actually paid to see the new Jennifer Lopez movie, and then snuck into the Hillary Duff movie (which is surprisingly easy when you and all of your cohorts have been old enough to drink for a decade or so). The first movie made my brain all gummy and warm. Half way through the second movie, little bits of my grey matter had liquified and begun to slip silently from my ears.

10.07.04 NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE
A few days ago, I talked to Michelle Slatalla, an online shopping journalist for the New York Times. We had a very pleasant conversation on Fall trends, and you can read the article here.

10.06.04 MIGHTY GOODS
I'm doing something neat! Please come look. Together with Douglas Bowman of Stopdesign, I'm excited to announce the launch of Mighty Goods. (Trumpets sound, flags unfurl, cue the sexy dancing girls!) It's a shopping blog full of good stuff, and we've been working on it for quite some time. I just love it. I hope you will also love it, because, as you know, your approval sustains me. Hooray for stuff!

10.04.04 LET THERE BE LIGHT
While in D.C., we took a tour of the National Building Museum, which was having an exhibit on concrete. The exhibit was surprisingly fascinating, in part because our tour guide was the curator who put it together. Near the end of the tour, he said we were going to look at examples of "the holy grail of concrete, which is, of course, transparent concrete." Of course.

Anyway, he then showed us various examples of light-conducting concrete, of which this was my favorite.

10.01.04 ONE OF THESE KIDS IS DOING HER OWN THING
If you're wearing a faux fur coat, heeled boots, a skirt, and bright red lipstick, don't make a quick stop at Home Depot. They look at you funny when you ask where the wrenches are.
