I think we need a pink unicorn with a sparkling eye today

November 30, 2009

It’s actually an iron-on transfer from Etsy.com. The seller didn’t ship to Denmark… sigh!

Sorry! I couldn’t resist – this headline was just too obvious :)

I must admit I got a thing for tights, so I was very pleased to discover a blog dedicated to tights lovers. It’s created by James Lillis – the designer behind the Australian tights brand Black Milk. Check out his blog Too Many Tights and try not go to the online store. I pretend it doesn’t exist!


I bet it won’t

You have a pair and the geeks have a pair. Some might only talk to theirs once a year at some mandatory Christmas event, some might have theirs on the phone 3 times a day. Parents.

The geeks love their parents. They raised us, they became immune to “I want candy for breakfast” hissy fits and are able to cope professionally with “I will only wear purple velvet overalls, have 20 ponytail in my thin, fairy-like hair every day and eat rye bread with butter and hazelnuts” demands. Parents rock and so does this amazing parents-appreciation-blog My Parents Were Awesome.

This is Line’s awesome parents, Bjarne & Anette:

Eva’s awesome parents:

From the blog:

Lee & Linda

Yves (who should also be featured in dadsinshortshorts) & Patricia

And super cool Inez & Joel

To get in the mood… for shopping!

Snakes on a plate

November 11, 2009

With this tableware by Laura Zindel my grandmothers would never come to dinner as they are both extremly scared of creepy-crawly animals, so I guess I better not put it on my Christmas wish list.

I don’t mind this category of somehow black-listed animals (show me a shark though, and watch me scream….). This is me showing off with a scorpio in South Africa – it was like holding a cotton ball – really light.

Applications Anonymous

applications iphone

“Hi my name is Eva, and I’m an appoholic, and I haven’t downloaded an application for 24 hours”

This is the story about how my new Iphone almost ruined my social life.

First day of apps: I downloaded all the free applications I could come across, including the “inhale helium here” and then forcing my dad to speak into it all night, and then rolling around crying with laughter when his voice came out sounding like an unhappy little smurf.

Day two: I discovered “bubble wrap” I realized that I had spent more than an hour on popping digital bubble-wrap-bubbles and had been enjoying it so much that I had popped more than 4000 assorted sizes of fake plastic bubbles.

Day three: Damn you Iphone, the TED app has arrived. spend all day watching TED-talks walking around my flat, getting educated on the subject of prosthetic legs while brushing my teeth. Learning about how bacteria can talk to each other, while I was making coffee.

First step is awareness. And I’ve now reduced my app abuse to maximum 1 app per day, going cold turkey!!
