My Favourite Things of the Moment

Filed under stuff i like

1) I assume that everyone has seen this at this point, but I just want to point out that:

a) this is the local news station I watch (don’t ask me why) when I’m at my apartment, and
b) Kamran and I have used it in so many aspects of our daily conversation at this point that it’s only getting funnier.

2) Elena Kalis, who my co-worker Anthony introduced me to.

3) Skeletons Fighting Over a Pickled Herring, a James Ensor painting from . . . 1891?! How messed up was this guy to be creating this craziness more than 100 years ago?

    How awesome is that skeleton painting?! You and Kamran SO need a print of that for your new apartment.

I don’t know if everyone will be able to see the photo in this link, but I’m giving it a try:
