It’s Monday.

Touched

As a city dweller sans car, I must employ a lot of strategery when out-and-about shopping.

For example,  you want to buy the big items last (so you carry them the shortest distance), which makes pre-planning your route key.

That’s why I am particularly excited about this new store in South Korea.

The items are actually touchscreen; you tap the ones you want, and they are waiting for you at checkout — no more shopping carts!

Brilliant.

Green

It’s hard to admit, but not all eggs are sticky.

In fact, some of the first ones I encountered as a child were green. And I got to see them up close and up sized today at Universal Studios.

If you didn’t get the reference, it’s from Dr. Seuss’ amazing Green Eggs and Ham.

Even if you did get the reference, it might be surprising to discover that it is a food stand.

Eureka!

Today was a very exciting day.

I finally found a hat that is bigger than my “larger-than-any-women’s-often-men’s-hat-shop-can-tackle (without resorting to a special order, I mean).

And here it is:

Carla Big Hat

It has the added bonus of covering all my hair — no need to brush, flat iron or coif!

Seeing may be a slight problem…

Deflated

Rory and I took our morning walk at 6am, so it was still quite dark on the streets of the Upper West Side.

Along the way we encountered two holiday visitors who I’m sure were supposed to be cheery and bright…but in the morning shadows were kinda lurking and sinister.

They were both five feet tall, too!

What do you think?  Do these blowies make your holidays merry and bright?  Or remind you of Chucky’s Christmas kin?

Let’s put a pin in it, shall we?

What they want

While I worked at Hallmark, we designed a line of greeting cards targeted specifically at the male consumer.

When it came time to name the card line, we brandied about many monikers. At one point, I suggested headlining the display “FREE BEER.”

Give them what they want, right?

I just passed this signboard at a new restaurant in my neighborhood:

Great minds…
