weekend pickthrough- getting around edition.

18 07 2010

this has been kind of a crazy week for me. along with eating a TON of candy bars (which is weird, because i’m not really a chocolate person), i had my first official post drop on part time vagabond, and as of friday afternoon,  i’m shakin it over at flyte new media (my first social media article ever!). i’m such a blog slut!

but seriously, i started this blog last year, because i wanted a reason to write every day. my life to date has been clogged with awful poetry, half finished novels, and otherwise general aimlessness. even if i’m not writing about anything important, this blog has given me focus. I joke about being a blog slut, but at the risk of getting all squishy and sentimental, this is a really exciting time for me. pre-broke207, i was just stumbling out of my twenties right into another decade of hapless wandering and bad decisions. ok, i still make a lot of bad decisions (candy bars!), but i find that i’m stumbling a lot less. so to make up for the very poor quality weekend pickthrough below (i was busy!), i would like to take a second to say thank you. thank you for reading, and commenting, and being generally awesome. and thank you also to flyte and part time vagabond, for trusting that i have something worthwhile to say in their space. oh, and thanks in advance for not hating too hard on the lame pickthough.

slap a couple of these babies on your pop tarts and you never have to feel eco-guilty again.

many thanks to the infamous qbert for pointing me toward a website dedicated to my present favorite fashion icon (what can i say, i’m a sucker for sweater sets).

worst gift suggestion EVER.

hey guess what, GETTING A MAMMOGRAM DOES NOT HURT (so get goin)!

a miracle of modern architecture. plus, it’s shaped like a turkey.

who knew that a field guide could be so hilarious.

with everyone competing to make the most ludicrously unhealthy sandwich, when is someone just gonna throw down and slap some lard between two buns (or maybe two grilled cheese sandwiches) and call it the winner?





weekend pickthrough- random crap that made me smile edition.

thanks in advance for enjoying this post.

of course the internet has an ugly sweater store.

a lesson in restaurant patronage– portland food coma style.

ok, now i’m hoping for a city-burying snow storm.

is buying a car with cash really a viable option for a girl like me? no, no it isn’t. on the upside, i don’t have 8 kids that i need to stuff into a ram van.

move over nana, these guys are already quilting the shit out of 2010. (richard caro, you’re the man)

looks like food and art are having a sexxxy weekend rendezvous.

and now we have a shark problem? fuck!

save your pennies! the restaurant week cast list has been released (and it’s lookin pretty hot).

just a gentle reminder, today is the first friday art walk. i’m going to go to see some pieces by this guy here. and some pieces by this guy here. any other recommendations?
