Whoops, things have been a bit wonky over here. Stuff broke, and is still sort of broke. I might change some things up around here, site-look-wise, but don’t hold your breath. I’ve been BUSY AND IMPORTANT and ignoring my site of late (anyone else read this article? I’ve been thinking about this stuff a lot recently).

So what have I been up to, and what are some super-random things I want to say and show you?

ONE. Marilyn Monroe played a blonde doll for much of her career, but she was quite the reader in her off-duty hours (while wearing hi-waisted shorts, NATCH). Here’s a list of what was in her library. I just bought The Dud Avocado to read at the beach which didn’t happen, see item TWO, but I WILL read it….what are your must-reads?

6. Diebenkorn_OP#43

TWO. Work’s been demanding a lot of attention recently, but who can complain when you get to spend intimate time with some of the most beautiful paintings ever made? We just opened Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series, and it’s safe to say that you can truly get lost in these meditative paintings. Go forth, enjoy the AC, and do yoga at the Corcoran (yes). OK. Work plug over.

THREE. I’ve been helping an entrepreneur friend with a summer picnic series featuring cool writers, thinkers, art people, education people, food people. Cool, unexpected locations around town and more importantly, great unexpected friendships and conversations. Invitations to the Series are issued based on an application, with SUPER HARD-HITTING questions like how one’s life might taste as a pie.

FOUR. I’ve got a lot of things on my shopping list of late (more on that, for sure), and one thing I wanted this spring but didn’t get was this burnout baseball tee. I love the idea of taking something basic and tomboyish and adding a soft, feminine skirt or a bunch of necklaces. It landed on my Spring Clothing List (on my phone…yes, I do this) because of I Want to Be Her, a personal-style blog from Andrea Linett, the co-founder of Lucky magazine. I really like the simple format and the way she profiles her subjects. Good tips, links, and aspirational style that’s actually achievable.

FIVE. Marvin Gaye singing the National Anthem. You’re welcome.

I’ll be back. I promise. Otherwise I’ll just be around, talking on Twitter, and also probably throwing up random posts like this or because I just made this gorgeous cake! and want you to PAY ATTENTION TO ME AND MY BURSTS OF MARTHA STEWARTNESS! Are you having fun yet??

    Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again very soon!

    What are the core or basic lessons taught Writing classes? One of the first things I learned about was Freytags Pyramid. I was told that isn’t an across the board learning device. So what is? I’m really curious. In poetry I was taught, ‘if it means too many things to too many people it misses it’s mark’. I have since learned that good writing tends to bring out different reactions in different people and different interpretations. How can learning about creative writing (creativity is so individualized) be standardized?.

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thanks!

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website? My blog site is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks!

  5. low fat diet May 24, 2016 4:34 am

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. corporate video services May 24, 2016 4:35 am

    Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  10. quick loans May 24, 2016 5:11 am

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your site. It appears like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks

  11. cash loans now May 24, 2016 5:56 am

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot

  12. commercial real estate lawyers May 24, 2016 5:57 am

    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back down the road. Cheers

  13. gaming pc for sale May 24, 2016 5:59 am

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

  14. web designs May 24, 2016 6:54 am

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thank you

  15. best gaming pcs May 24, 2016 6:59 am

    Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  16. quick loans May 24, 2016 7:11 am

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!

  17. spyhunter program May 24, 2016 7:33 am

    Hi! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

  18. sharepoint 2010 enterprise search May 24, 2016 7:41 am

    Hello superb website! Does running a blog like this take a massive amount work? I have virtually no knowledge of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic however I simply had to ask. Thanks!

  23. fema buying food May 24, 2016 8:23 am

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

  27. film production house May 24, 2016 9:35 am

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

  28. lawn cutting service May 24, 2016 9:45 am

    First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

  29. www May 24, 2016 9:52 am

    Wow! Thank you! I permanently wanted to write on my site something like that.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Appreciating the persistence you put into your site and detailed information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  38. aged care wa May 24, 2016 1:26 pm
