Was it lunch or the drive home?

Explosive vomit
Bloated belly full of gas
But no flatulence

Feeling blue

Across the road from my bus stop there is a lighting store and standing in its window are two Jielde loft lamps, facing each other. One is taller than the other, and the shorter one lowers its head, as if a child being scolded by its mother lamp. I don't have a photo of the window display but instead here is a picture from the Jielde website of the same lamps and their family driving a car (note the little lamps sitting in the backseat sticking their heads out of the window):

This has made me covet a powder blue Loft lamp, such as the one below (except that I would not make it pose for nudie shots, which is obviously what it is doing in this photo, also from the Jielde website).

It can make friends with the blue Eames chair I'm going to buy myself after I've cleaned my apartment.

I hope you enjoyed this exercise in furniture personification.

Best bloody giveaway win ever

When I found out I'd won, I was so excited I almost left a wet patch on the couch. The giveaway was to celebrate, the website of designer and illustrator Jez Burrows (no shit). I have loved his blog, Woods, ever since I bought his Pocket Town print, and now he has a whole website. His work has been in the NY Times magazine, Monocle and Time (amongst others) if that's the sort of thing that impresses you.

The prize came in a giant tube from Edinburgh. My sister picked it up from the post office for me on Christmas Eve and brought it along on Christmas Day when I met my family after work. Don't tell my family but I was more excited about opening that tube than their Christmas presents. My Dad was full of curiosity. "Intriguing," he said, "A package from Scotland." (PS my dad is originally Scottish.) Contents of the tube? A zine by Sing Statistics, this little lovely, a poster (in the blurry photo below) and a giant print:

Anyway, I was super-excited. "What are you going to do with that?" asked my Dad as I unpacked the tube. (PS my dad is into those paintings of outback scenes with a guy sitting outside a bush shack, heating up a billy.)

Check out the website, blog and flickr. Buy this and this, make this your screensaver and your life will be better.  (Trust me, I'm a doctor.)

Romance makes me feel this way

Roses are red and
Violets are blue and I think
I'm gonna vomit.

Whose great idea was this?

Lease available:
Stone-throwers need not apply.
Naturalists may.

This study stuff is hard work

Eyes: they're still burning
Head: it's silently throbbing
Sleep: it evades me

My work day

The strangest patient
Washes hair in toilet, then
Walks around in nude
