Have a lovely weekend.

A New Light

    Remember the French light I had ordered a while back? Well, it arrived, but was very confusing. First of all, it came flat as a board, and secondly, it didn't fit with a non-European light fixture. I probably would have given up, but my brother Nick stepped in and rewired my whole light! He was amazing and gallant and weirdly not that scared of being electrocuted. The light is so pretty; I really love it. Thank you so much, Nick!!!
    P.S. Sarah Wilson, pictured, was his muse.

This American Life

    Now and again, I get temporarily obsessed with one thing or another. I was really into graphic novels a couple years ago, then I was really into France, then I became totally fixated on my bike (which is pretty awesome, I have to admit).

    Right now, my slow burning obsession is This American Life, the unbelievably awesome radio show.


    Ira Glass—the effeminate but straight, smart yet humble, earnest but engaging, worldly yet relatable host—interviews regular people as they tell hilarious, poignant stories about stuff that happened to them. Each episode has a topic (e.g., neighbors or fiascos or pen pals) and features 3-4 stories on that topic.


    This American Life is so brilliant that there have been a few times recently where I’ve been walking down the street by myself and can't help cracking up like a crazy person. At one point, I even hoped (just for a split second) that the elevator would get stuck so that I could keep listening to an episode before having to go into the office.

    The ten best episodes that will change your life:
    Superpowers
    Telephone
    Notes on Camp
    My Experimental Phase
    Time to Save the World
    Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time
    How to Win Friends and Influence People
    Detectives
    Americans in Paris
    Act V


    Download them immediately. You will love them. Trust me.Source URL: http://katierae-bandgeeksclothesandicecream.blogspot.com/2007/06/

At least it's not brain surgery. Oh, wait, it is.

One Sentence

    Sometimes you need a website you can surf to when you need a break. Postsecret is still great, but a new favorite is One Sentence. True stories, told in one sentence. Some examples...

    * I conduct job interviews for a living and nothing gives me a better sense of wielding karma than giving the job to the nervous kid instead of the better qualified arrogant prick.
    * She’s ruined half of my music library for me.
    * It’s been so long that I don’t even look down your street anymore.

    What would you say in one sentence, dear readers?

Hamish Buys a Key Ring

    My uncle Hamish (here, with his wife Hal) lives in a little town in England. Here's his hilarious report of a recent ebay transaction....

    Wrote Hamish:
    "I bought a horribly garish key ring for my bike a week ago, paid for it immediately and received nothing, so I sent a note saying that if it didn’t arrive pretty soon, negative feedback would be on the way. Check out the guy’s response...'Dont worry about the bad feed back its on its way and i emailed you saying postman eva robbed it or your trying it on. My wife has resent you one and it will be the last one as this time i have proof off postage get what i mean. so eva you carnt robb me again or the postman carnt'"

    Heehee, love those Brits....Source URL: http://katierae-bandgeeksclothesandicecream.blogspot.com/2007/06/

Which love type are you?

    Oprah Magazine is like the dorky kid in school. People make fun of it for being cheesy and lame. But it's secretly awesome. I've hung out with it, and it's funny, smart, down-to-earth, and it knows all about relationships, books, bodies and periods!

    Last week, Oprah gave us a really cool quiz, which Lina and I are now obsessed with. The quiz tells you which kind of boyfriend/girlfriend you are: an Explorer, Builder, Negotiator or Director. It's funny to figure out the love style of yourself, your friends and your significant other. Which are you?

Hear Ye, Hear Ye: The Yuppie List

    Now that I've been dating Alex, we've been spending Friday nights in Park Slope eating stinky cheeses and drinking acidic white wines and just generally acting like yuppies.

    Remember last year's yuppie list? With great embarrassment, I think it is time to bring it back.

    For example: Last Friday, we were chatting about foods we hated as kids. Alex mused, "When I was growing up, I never liked green beans. But I like them now...you know, haricot verts...."

    Yes. Stay tuned for more...Source URL: http://katierae-bandgeeksclothesandicecream.blogspot.com/2007/06/
