"Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor."

"When you start to really know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant."

"You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart– even when it leads you off the well-worn path. And, that will make all the difference."

Ultra minimalist logos

An experiment to re-design famous logos in an ultra minimalist style. I’m personally digging the google one.

Thomas and I were just talking about banner ads, after I read this Digiday post on swapping billboards for banners (a tactic I totally agree with by the way).

And it got me thinking about three instances in which really (intentionally) terrible banner ads, did something that well-designed…

I tried to play Fantasy Football

So, I got really excited because my friend Carrie asked me into her fantasy football league. No one has ever asked me into a league before, except my friend Scott who runs a suicide league, which is totally different. 

I feel like people think I wouldn’t like to obsess over detailed statistics and keep to the NFL storylines & schedule for selecting players on a weekly basis- guys, I’m totally named after a soap opera character, and love football.  Hello!  I might win your league, off the bat, fresh off the boat #hairflip I like to think it’s jealousy that kept me out of your leagues.

Anyway - I thought I signed up for my league but I hate Yahoo and have a ridiculous s password I picked in 2006 when there was a minute I thought to expand past the same combination of words/letters/numbers I’ve been using since I logged onto AOL in 1996 for the first time.  Yes, I realize it’s stupid to have the same password combos for everything, but 99% of America is stupid or we’d be in the 1% and I’m lazy. 

I think I logged into Yahoo sports Fantasy Football League wrong in July/August and then probably got distracted negotiating a freelance offer or by a Kate Spade online sale, and never returned to the site to name my team anything awesome, like Same Old But Wait It’s New! Or Namath’s Numbnuts or something. I would have spent a ton more time on all of this stuff people- but I got busy!  

So while I kept ESPN The Magazine’s issue about Fantasy Football’s Best Practices, *in print, so I could easily toggle between my laptop and the magazine #smartgirl* the draft started and I had a headache, and I was still lazy, and Carrie didn’t answer her texts emails or her phone during the draft cause she was *focusing* so then I was digitally locked out of the Yahoo site, for the duration of the night. 

Today, I was surprised when I got an email, saying I owed $50 in the league. And Carrie told me that Yahoo drafted a team for me. 

Now I’m in 4th place out of a league of 15 teams with Matt Forte, Michael Vick, and Ben Roethlisberger on my team. You know, spellcheck knew how to spell Roethlisberger #sad and I have a dog killer and a Pittsburgh rapist on my first Fantasy team, both Pennsylvania quarterbacks and no one from ANY New York team.  And - the name of my team is- Laura’s Team.  It’s so unoriginal. There’s a team in the league called- wait for it- RGIII’s Knee!  Shame on me, it’s- like- not stylish. 

See, I effing hate Yahoo and ridiculous security password combinations.  This is everything that’s wrong with the world people! 

There was a really good Kate Spade sale online today, off topic.
