A few random things I’d never be able to build a post around…
Take, for instance, this picture. Imagine if you were an infant, and someone–I’m not saying who–your father? Maybe it doesn’t matter, your experience of reality is quite finite–anyway, this person wants to play “peek-a-boo” with you. And they’re looming after you, enormous, and you realize that this MONSTROUS CREATURE HAS NO FACE. You scream. Your breath catches in your throat. You wiggle your feet against each other because you’re like two months old and not much of a runner yet. And years later, that monster comes back to haunt your dreams.
And your only solace is art.
Which of us can’t relate to that?
The following item may be the single most useless thing you will ever find at Goodwill. A true triumph of style over substance.
I know, a land-line phone, right?
Mmmm, chewing-gum phone. I’d be worried that the diamonds get stuck in your teeth.
There’s something quintessentially “80s” about this piece. The bold lines–it’s a rotary, that’s kind of special–and I really do believe that AT&T would have stuck diamonds on their phone if they’d been able to charge a little extra for the privilege. Even if you couldn’t actually reach out and touch someone. Anyway.
I have yet to figure out what’s going on here, or what holiday we’re celebrating. Merry St. Valeastrmass. I hope the Easter Bunny/Santa/Someone Special knows that you’ve been a very good/bad/easy individual this month and that they’ve left you lots of toys/eggs/toys in your basket/stocking/stocking
