How much do I love this doormat from Perpetual Kid? I usually don’t like mouthy home accessories, but I have to give this one a little more respect. Well done.
In 1988, I purchased a T-shirt from a popular ice cream institution here in Austin, which featured that above title slogan. I still have the shirt somewhere, and still subscribe to the sentiment. Almost every day. Because for some reason, I can’t seem to get going in the morning until it’s almost the afternoon. This [...]
I’ve been thinking about refrigerators lately. Mainly because the one in this old house needs to be upgraded (along with the rest of the kitchen). However, every model I’ve seen and liked is running about $2K (Like this retro refrigerator above from Elmira Stove Works) And, alas, I don’t currently have that kind of change [...]
It all started as a random, throw away idea in a meeting. I wondered about ways we could have the Mom 2.0 Summit’s Friday night event in a place that wasn’t dark and loud. I said, it would be cool if we could have a party with an art exhibit theme…if it could be in [...]

As of today, I now have a little office in the back of my house. It has six, almost-floor-to-ceiling windows in it. I think I’m going to need to start wearing sunscreen in the house. But I’m not complaining. *Horrible photo taken with my iPhone. I plan to find my actual camera sometime tomorrow.
I’m thinking a lot about Marfa lately. Partially because it’s on my year list. And partially because I do this every spring. Whenever it starts to warm up around here, I begin to dream of wearing house dresses and walking around lazy, open spaces. No one knows why. But there’s something mysterious about Marfa. I’ve [...]
If you’re planning to throw a party in Texas…specifically at SXSW…here are a few things that might help: 1. Interesting People. See above photo for 12 of them. Then add 12 + 438 = Awesome. Especially that dude in the lower right box. He’s a swell Guy to partner with when you’re ready to party. [...]
