So my dear friend Charmalade tells me I don't post enough. That's because my life is boring and there's already so much great content out there. Scratch that, my life isn't boring; it's germinating. It is fertile soil with seeds planted, but not enough sunshine yet for anything to sprout. How's that for a fun metaphor?

What I do have is a youtube playlist I made. I named her rock folk rock.

I was inspired by all the recommendations from a somewhat recent LeProust Vintage post entitled Jack White Would be Proud. Isn't that the coolest post?! LeProust has great followers, and so many of them contributed with suggestions. Love it! I just sifted through them and collected tracks from the ones I hadn't really heard of (with a few exceptions - the Stupid Bowl was going on at the same time so I also threw in the NFL theme song).

That's pretty much all I've got!

Have you been checking out the goods on It's kind of wicked cute stuff. More wicked cute (like sharp and chic) than precious cute (a la ModCloth). I ordered two dresses from there today. I await delivery with bated breath! Nope, this is not a sponsored post.

Also, the Jayhawks are #1 in the nation baby. 7-0 in conference play. I saw them play Nebraska at home yesterday and man, the future looks bright! I have little to no tolerance for that other popular sport that is having a big event today. What a brat I am.

So, a few awesome people already know this (probably the same few who read this blog), but last semester I did a graduate research project on Outfit of the Day bloggers. Now it looks like I may write my thesis for my Sociology M.A. on OOTD blogs. In the interest of full disclosure, I comment and subscribe to blog feeds both because I find them interesting and because I'm researching. In ethnographic terms I am doing participant observation. I just want you to know that, because I'm not trying to be some kind of sneakypants.

Hope you're well!

Haircut and other things

So the Spring 2010 semester started three weeks ago at KU. It's going to be a good one. I am taking two classes that are going to help me make major progress on my thesis. In honor of forward movement, I also got a haircut. With bangs! I haven't had bangs since... oh... seven years or so. But my hairstylist is brilliant. She knows how to make it do.

I'm definitely not a skilled self photographer. But I think the cut makes up for my ghetto picture-taking ability.

And meet my cat, Peaches. She was posing in front of the red craft cabinet, so I had to take her pic. She does not like cameras. Well, maybe she just doesn't like the flash. Frankly, I can empathize.

My Jayhawks are playing in about half an hour and frankly I should be doing homework. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! GO KU!
