I recently bought a pretty awesome winter coat and I feel compelled to buy this hat to go with it. I just need a horse and a big stick to beat villagers.

Thankfully, I've also got some "Dictators of the World" mustache buttons.

I say this without any irony: DO WANT

I've not been feeling the Threadless love recently since they've veered into painfully hipster territory, but look what I saw in my inbox today!
Damn right I'm getting it.

Since ours was a destination wedding and we had guests coming from different parts of the country, the Husband and I set up a little wedding web site at the Knot (d00d, it was easy and free). It has a sister site and publication called [the nest] (dear god, it really has brackets in its title) which is all about newlyweds and married life.

The Husband and I are a few months short of our first year anniversary, and a free copy of [the nest] found its way into our mailbox.

It only seemed to ultimately cover three things: buying real estate, birth control, and how to conceive. It also had a cutesy article about going into business with your spouse. It amused me because in all of the profiles, both the marriages and the businesses were less than 3 years old. Its only redeeming quality was an unamused dog that was in the background of most of the pictures in the home decor pictorial.

Never has a magazine made me want to slit my wrists so badly. Whatever lifestyle this magazine is pushing, it is full of DO NOT WANT.

I fully admit that I am a former subscriber of Cosmopolitan, Lucky and Glamour. Kitsch is always high on my priority list. There are times when each of these publications hit "awesomely bad" levels, and they are always unintentionally hilarious. However, [the nest] just makes me want to cry and drink.

I just realized there's a whole generation that remembers Robert Preston primarily as Centauri or Toddy.

I'm not crazy about the Music Man (I totally blame Matthew Broderick) so I'm okay with this.

I am also watching Victor/Victoria yet again, because I cannot change the channel once the clicker has found it and god damn, it seems some random ass channel is airing it almost nightly. I lurve Leslie Ann Warren's Chicago dance number. It's just so awesomely tacky and the bit about "someday we'll have an airport" just kills me.

I went shopping for a lint brush and somehow ended up with a new purse, a faux-vintage Pan Am travel bag (and no lint brush). It's as long and as wide as my Zelda bag, but it's taller and has exterior pockets on both sides which is nice. I'm also giddy over the Pan Am logo since my first airplane ride ever was on a Pan Am flight.

Another reason to love Ace of Cakes: Mary Alice just said, "Operation Cookie Clusterfuck!"
I did not know this but Charm City Cakes sells more than just t-shirts and beanies, they also have drumsticks with the bakery's logo. ZOMG it would be super awesome for the friends who love Food Network AND own the Rock Band drum controller.

After seeing [livejournal.com profile] ziggybecket's awesome Chinese New Year photos, I totally want a new qipao. I really like this one but I think it's because it looks so much like my Grandmother's when I see pictures of her from the seventies. And this one looks a lot like my prom dress. Shhhh! I know I already have a gorgeous red qipao in my closet.

Somewhere along the line I graduated from being an eyeshadow whore to a cream eyeliner whore. I can't stop coveting this liner in Black Honey and these liners in Espresso Ink and Black Plum Ink.

The new Ace Attorney game isn't out until February 20 and I've already hit a plateau with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Fucking Temple of the Ocean King. I finished Eternal Sonata a few days ago, and I'm debating whether or not to replay it in Encore Mode to get all the remaining score pieces, and possible gaming achievements.

I am intrigued by Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I'm a total sucker for these mystery/puzzle games and it comes out 10 days before Apollo Justice which might help me savor my lawyer adventures a little longer.

Karrie's picked up on a cute meme: just post a cap of your desktop.
VoilĂ !

I snagged the desktop icons here and the wallpaper from this person. I really didn't like the Cowboy Bebop movie but that was a very pretty scene, and there's enough contrast for me to actually read what my icons say. I've also learned it's very hard to find desktop wallpapers for 1680x1050 screens.

OMG, etsy has fountain pens. GORGEOUS fountain pens.

And speaking of pens, I just bought myself an awesome, awesome thing: a RETRACTABLE FOUNTAIN PEN. Hot damn!

Some people might be finding some adorably chubby seal stationary in their mailboxes since I am going to be finding any reason possible to use this pen.

I just bought a laptop and I'm already fretting its longevity.

The higher education discount helped--until I blew it all on sales tax and faster shipping. To save $25, I opted for basic black but I've spotted a super awesome steam punk laptop skin I'm already coveting as I await my laptop's arrival.

Damn Moo, they have found my weakness: stickers!

I've been taking more pictures so my next batch of moo cards would be super awesome. I haven't made a dent in the Pinky St inventory, but I will goddamnit.
