stained tea.

this is a killer installation.
3000 tea bags dipped in paint.
lives at rolling greens in hollywood.

i bet if you were triple clever,
you could probably make a face appear in the pattern.

but then weirdos would show up and weep on the floor.
so on second thought, let's just leave it the way it is.

my wallet is currently made of tyvek
and it's been remarkably resilient.

from the folks with a good eye at milk design shop.

drunk under the stairs.

we're currently looking at houses.
and after finding these pics...
i'm now looking for houses with secret rooms.

this awesome stair trap door was a prohibition fix.
4 feet deep, complete with tiny ladder to get to your booze.
super cool.

sure is chili

i'm a creature of habit.
some good, some bad.
like, not folding laundry fresh out of the dryer
then having to iron every damn thing.

planning weekly meals is one of the few that falls in the good bucket.
may very well be my only good habit.
we plan our meals for the week
and only buy what we need for those meals.
in january, i made a list of nearly 30 meals to choose from.
we're off to a good start.

to minimize weekday morning prep time
i like to make a batch of meals on sunday night.
this chili has been my go to.
it's enough for five days of healthy servings
for two people.
thought i would share.

i found it here on pinterest and made some slight adjustments.

based on the characters of a 1500 year old zen poem.

also, prints.

not a game per se, but it does sound like fun.
scotch and infographics? yes please.

and it works on your ipad, because that's more social.

learning whilst drunking is fun.
