I have been traveling. I was busy nearly every minute so I took very few pictures. I went to Atlanta for a few days then home for one whole day. Then, it was off to San Francisco for two days. I am tired. I am catching up.

On Sunday, my favorite person in the whole world turned 28. On Saturday, Timmy D., Manda, Carlos, Brian, James, Timmy C., Andy W., and I celebrated Andy and his birthday with a small party in my parents’ back yard featuring a fire, disc, and the Leonard Maltin Game. I really did take several pictures of the birthday boy but in almost all of them, he’s either blurry or his face is obstructed by a tree or a disc or cropped out by my unfortunate composition attempts. I’m a terrible girlfriend. My cute boyfriend is the one on the right in the last picture, a bit out of focus. In focus, however, is a very hungry Carlos.

Happy birthday, cutie. I love you with all my heart. 28 looks good on you.

Instagram

Are you using Instagram? I am. I resisted it for a while because it bugged me. Mostly, I was upset because I saw some bloggers using only Instagram images for their blogs and I thought that was kinda cheap, y’know? Now though, I’ve decided I’m into it. It’s fast and cute and makes me stop and notice the stuff around me.

Take a look at what I’ve posted here or find me on Instagram as thesweetbeast.

And then came down with a serious case of being a crab-ass. So I made Andy go with me to get vegan ice cream. And when there was no parking at the vegan ice cream place, he bought me raspberry sorbet at Trader Joe’s instead because he is very handsome and patient and handsome.

I’ll be ending my weekend watching either Waitress or Bright Star, I haven’t decided yet. Andy will be ending his weekend hiding from me and watching Lost, picturing me as the smoke monster.

ICFF 2011

I am in New York until Tuesday this week attending ICFF and NSS. Both happen but once a year and this is my second year attending both. The shows happen at the same time on different floors of the Javits Center and attract rather different crowds. Allow me to generalize and stereotype for you: the ICFFers are the typical designy types, dressed in solid neutrals with carefully selected eyewear while the NSSers are dressed in bright colors and patterns, rolling little suitcases behind them while being distinctly middle aged. I have equal affection for both.

This year’s ICFF was less exciting than last year’s and although everything was certainly well designed, I didn’t really see anything especially innovative. I did, of course, see some things I liked (and would love to have in my apartment!) though not all of it was new for this year’s show.

I’m a big pile of lazy so I’m just going to throw some pictures at you instead of writing a decent post. These are the Treesons that keep me company at work.

Pittsburgh has a lot of beautiful libraries but the Carnegie Library in Oakland is my favorite. Graffiti for nerds.
