ADVICE - march edition

these are some things i've been thinking about recently,
and by "thinking about",
i mean, reading and pausing and absorbing.

we don't do enough of that, do we? pause. absorb.

so right now, do me a favor. pause.

read some of these.

absorb.

let me know what you think. that's a big one too.
you lurkers out there, hit the "post" button and show yourselves.
i'm feeling lonely. ;)

oniomania – the uncontrollable desire to buy things

ok, first, i'm afraid that they've named it.
second, i'm going to pretend i never read it, and it's not classifiable.

In the thirties and forties, Hollywood referred to actors as “rug actors”
(the ones who could do love scenes)
or “dust actors”
(the ones who could shoot and fight).
Don’t we all want a rug and dust man?


i got one. he's just more rug than dust. as it should be.

a two seater sofa is called a "tete a tete",
while a sofa for three was called an "
indiscret".

and i always thought it was called a "too much tequila."

You're perfect, yes it's true. But without me, you're only you.
-faith no more


i LOVE this. if tim has taught me anything, it's that i'm perfect.

no, wait. that's not the point, is it?

i guess if i were perfect, i could figure it out,
but i have to go buy something right now.
maybe a rug.

I'm in a bit of a dry spell, so I don't need any dust. Just give me rug. Lots of rug. Maybe bearskin?

not that you will have any idea of what i'm talking about, because you don't know this word, but i am happy to report that apparently i do not have oniomania. i was misdiagnosed, and it seems, miraculously, that i'm entirely in control of when and what i buy (believe me, no one is more surprised by this than i.).

Just what I needed: another disorder to suffer from. Love your insights, as usual, Landis!

I'm relieved and happy that my disorder finally has a name.

And I like to think I'm perfectly imperfect in every way.
