Lisa: there is beauty all around

Some days, the little things feel extra special.

  • I don't think there is any better feeling than hitting the snooze button and hopping from the cold room back into the warm bed, especially when you have enough blankets so that the covers feel heavy but not hot and the pillows are arranged in a perfect cushy nest. It's not really conducive to getting to work on time, but we all have our priorities.

  • I have been lusting after Aveda Rosemary Mint shampoo ever since I became an instant addict with the little bottles at the Hotel at MIT. Like a good girl, I used up all the shampoo in the house before stopping at Rutted (a salon between my home and work with a very unfortunate name but, on the bright side, selling Aveda products) to buy a liter of Rosemary Mint and a pump. I used it this morning and IT IS AWESOME--just as good as I remembered. It is all minty and tingly and refreshing and the rosemary is kind of savory smelling and not too girly. It's good for my hair, too. Plus then I used my new hair gel, which smells like Nerds candy, and it was like a match made in heaven. Two great tastes that (surprisingly) taste great together.

  • The 2007 Knitty wall calendar came out today, and I was idly clicking through the pictures used for each month when I happened upon this:

    That, ladies and gentlemen, is what is called nerdy hot. Do not underestimate the power of the nerdy hotness. Do you see those garters? The miniskirt? Who can say that knitting is just for grandmas now?
