A few weeks ago the Rachael Ray Show flew me out to New York to do a teeny segment about my kitchen project. It was super fun and super strange and super scary and maybe I’ll write a longer post about it later, but the two main things I learned were My brain turns to […]
Can you believe that there’s no Wikipedia article for Modernica’s Case Study planter? (Of course you can, but I was legit surprised until I came to my senses.) I wanted to look up its history because sometimes the most boring things turn out to be super interesting–a bad example is how the Ikea Frosta stool […]
Don’t hurt anybody or actually set any limos on fire, obvs. But still, fuck some shit up with your words and your voice and your overwhelming numbers and your refusal to tolerate any more of this hateful, plutocratic garbage. Love doesn’t trump hate–action does. And also maybe a good old-fashioned revolution.
I just spent the last hour writing the beginning of this post, but as I’ve been up since 4:30 am for a flight that didn’t end up taking off until noon it was less of an introduction and more of an “Eliza rants for 500 words about late-stage capitalism in two giant run-on sentences” […]
After I bought my Egon Ostergaard desk last fall, I decided to try and change the way I bought stuff for my apartment. At $220, the desk was WAY more than I would usually spend on a piece of non-essential furniture (that’s more than a month of groceries!) and I was pretty freaked out about […]
The holidays are almost over and pretty soon we can all go back to being normal human beings who don’t have opinions on confetti types or which kind of kraft paper looks the most effortless. I cannot wait.
For some reason, whenever things get really bad I get the urge to make stuff with yarn. I learned how to crochet afghans and knit lace socks and make little amigurumi animals after some of the worst times of my life. That huge ridiculous wall hanging I wrote about a while ago saved me from […]
I have been trying to buy a garbage can and an alarm clock for TWO MONTHS and I’m kind of starting to lose it. This shouldn’t be that hard, right? Remember back in the old days, when you needed a clock, so you got in the car and went to Target and picked out […]
What’s that you say? Finals? Next week? That can’t possibly be true, because I’m way too busy bothering the dog and poking around on the internet to even think about studying. I mean, the Craigslist used furniture section isn’t going to browse itself, guys. My finals workload is actually extremely small this semester, but it […]
So, I’m not a fan of holiday decor. I want to avoid sounding super Grinch-y about this, but that might be impossible because I basically am the Grinch, minus the grand larceny. I don’t exactly hate Christmas, I just really… don’t care. Growing up, my family didn’t have any real Christmas traditions (or at least none […]
