136. Mad Mad Love

I am so madly in love with this dress from ModCloth:


It feels very Peggy Olson. Who, I have to say, has developed into one of my very favorite characters on Mad Men.


We still haven't finished season 3, but the cold and rainy weather lately has been perfect for curling up in bed with a laptop. I'm going to be really sad once we've run out of episodes.

135. Discoveries!

In updating my Blogger subscriptions because my brother is a weenie who is systematically removing himself from The Matrix, I have stumbled across some new blogs which make me squeal with porcine glee.

The first, my favorite comic author/illustrator of all time - Jhonen Vasquez.

I'm feeling a bit disappointed in myself for not attending PAX this year, because as it turns out, I could have [potentially] met him. But I have never been the sort of girl who is much into the convention scene, and I ended up meeting Daniel Johnston that weekend instead. Maybe next time.
Regardless, his blog is comedy gold, just as I'd anticipated.

Second is an equally nerd-tastic discovery, belonging to Rufus Dayglo, the illustrator for the new series of Tank Girl comics.
Have Pencil, Will Scribble
Basically, post-apocalyptic punk-ass eye candy. Eee!

This site actually led to a serious Tank Girl craving, which resulted in my purchasing a copy of Armadillo! this morning.

I've been wanting it forever now, so it was really only a quasi-impulse buy. At least, that's how I'm justifying it to myself.

That's probably enough slacking for today though. Back to work.

134. Rock Star

Utterly enamored with this photo of Dave Grohl this morning. There's just something amazing about the energy it conveys. I want the same from my own work.
