ah, life as a freelancer. sitting at the kitchen table, sipping a huge mug of blueberry tea, and working to downtempo. not much to complain about here :) except maybe the fact that it's absolutely FREEZING in the apartment (already time to whip out the handknit socks?) and that, oh, i'm continually reminded that healthcare benefits only go to the fulltime-tied. i'm still working on that one. let us wish for no pedestrian accidents, for this week at least.
speaking of which, i had this bizarre dream last night where i was just about to exit outside (a building? a subway station?) but stopped in my tracks when i noticed numbers of bodies collapsed on the ground. i turned around and asked someone, 'whats going on?' and apparently there was this incredible official group effort to shoot down pretty much everyone walking around for a sanctioned amount of time. apparently i was safe if i stayed indoors, but i was really confused, incredulous, and amazingly freaked out. from the inside looking out, i just cowered and heard the mysterious shots outside and falling bodies. it was as if there were snipers covering every possible coordinant. no explosions, no otherwise war-torn strangeness. merely a quick, strange, silent demise.
so this week has been really great! pick up an issue of the weekly dig if you have a chance; i'm so thrilled to be contributing style clips to pretty much the most brilliant paper publication in boston. check out my writeup on HABIT, and my running total should always be accessible through a search of my name.
i'm also embarking on a fantastic lifestyle production mobile media contract right now. not yet sure how much to disclose in these initial times, but you will definitely here more about it (is that an understatement?) very, very soon. :)
did i mention that i was interviewing with louisboston for a visual merchandising position? fierce fabrication! if you havent been to this place, you must go. the store is pretty much a boutique in the skin of a museum, immaculate, dramatic, postmodern. fantasy and luxury at its finest. i was extremely enthused and surprised that they were interested (it really was one of those 'drop off your resume and we'll call you' kind of circumstances), but unfortunately the work timing and situation wasnt ideal for the immediate moment. however, i'm still very much giddy and pleased! redemption, perhaps, that i am capable of doing what i love and what i want. we shall see if there might be more to mention about this in the future...
apologies i've been blogging most boringly about, well, my stuff, but i'll sort things out and figure out an ideal theme for this forum. i havent knit in weeks, i've been working out in unpublicized nature (can you believe that i'm shrinking?), and i'm thoroughly and professionally encapsulated in boston lifestyle. not to mention sneaking moments back to lab to poke old researchmates and abuse the laser printers. alum perks? ;)
which reminds me, new sans serif. lots of house to get yourself bizzy dancing to. i got an email from a listener in allston who claimed that i 'keep his ipod *on ice* all week long'. i wonder if it ends up melting during those intense venetian snares cum otto von schirach sets that i often get so fond of...
get ready for the boston knitout + crochet on sunday! see you for the free swag and the needle-wielding boston commonites.
more later on tribal bellydancing, cosmestic camaraderie, and michel gondry. à tout a l'heure!
