I just came across this blog, Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today? and it made me do a happy dance in my chair. She draws pictures of the things she buys every day. It may not sound awesome, but IT IS, trust me. (although you don't have to trust me, even though I am very trustworthy; you just have to click on the link and see for yourself.) I love these kinds of projects that make something special out of something ordinary. I also love the notion of being accountable (to yourself) for the stuff you bring home. And the notion of a daily drawing blog appeals to me as well. Many notions that I am in favor of are featured in this blog!

I did happy dance #2 when I got to the January 1st entry and saw that she bought Maira Kalman's Principles of Uncertainty, a title I spied at the library and scribbled on a post-it for later acquisition. (I love Kalman's Max the Dog kid's books and was so happy to see a longer work.)

  1. I just wanted to say that I checked out the link and although I did not do a happy dance about I did find it to be enjoyable. I did, however, do a happy semi-dance when I heard someone in my neighborhood practicing the, wait for it---BAGPIPES!! I had to get on the phone with a person that I rarely speak to, on the phone, to convey that information as I was hoping she would find it to be happy news. And she did. It was a lovely ending to a drawn out and relatively, literally, annoying weekend.

  2. I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE you heard the bagpiper! That seriously made my week and it was only SUNDAY when I found out about it! Were they any good? Is their bagpipe practice paying off?

  3. I would have to say that I am not an expert on the bagpipe playing but I am fairly certain that a song is not what was coming out. But they were really trying and I immediately thought of you and who knew that someday I would have a friend that bagpipes would remind me of?
