As I read the entire Internet this past weekend, I found a few things that really stuck out to me. Stuck in my mind.
You might say they were mindstickers.
You’ll see what I mean.
For starters, there are many reasons that I wish I would have been in advertising back in the 1960s.
I found these on Snarkling Clean (actually, you can find another version there). They all make me laugh out loud. Everytime. Someone told me that, as a progressive female, she was offended by these. I can’t seem to gather the composure to be offended because I can’t stop the laughing.
On the music-on-the-brain front, our favorite Padrino created an iMix on Not That You Asked Me But… It took me a minute or 80, but I finally figured out how to post one myself. (Mucho mucho props go out to the Padrino for helping me post my convoluted iMix image.)
So here’s a mixed tape I made of a few of my favorite mindsticking songs that get in your head and won’t leave.
This list is for you, Bek.
In other news, Jenny and I had lunch today. She’s having a Bring-Out-Your-Weird contest thing. And I’m not sure that she believes me when I say I seriously have no strange kitch in my streamlined, which is only a nice way of saying small, house. See, if we don’t actually use something on any kind of regular basis, it’s out the door. But if you, like her, live in a grand estate stocked with closets full of fun, funny, and bizarre, then by all means, enter her weird contest. If I know you like I think I do, you’ve got a real shot.
Also, with the giving season beginning on Friday, now’s not the time to buy yourself anything. But it’s definitely the time to win yourself something. So do yourself a favor, and visit Design Mom’s place. She’s giving extremely cool stuff away everyday. Every day. Check it.
I told you she was the new Oprah.
And finally, with this week’s Holiday in mind, here’s wishing you people a very Happy Thanksgiving. No matter what you’re doing…visting with family, cold warring with neighbors, cooking for many, blogging, dancing, being clever, being pregnant, being Canadian, celebrating birth, missing friends, giving back, giving away, having fun, having sex. Whatever.
May you and yours have many blessings on the brain.
And, perhaps more importantly, may you always be a mindsticker.
A mindsticker who eats lots of turkey. And pie.
