paper heart

michael cera + charlyne yi combo = awkward geek perfection

makes for a great quirky movie. i'm about 30 minutes into this movie and i'm enjoying it immensely. it's one of those movies that makes you subconsciously smile. i have a new found love for charlyne yi - a.k.a. high asian girl in knocked up.
"you must be angry at the baby whenever it steals your food, huh? ohh that's mine, not yours. but, you know, because you're family you gotta share." - jodi in knocked up
too funny. she has the cutest giggle / laugh. i'm a lover of good quirky movies. screw you imdb, your rating system will not be the judge of my movie preferences.

the cure

begging like you might take order in your own hands.
i stare, it seems like i don't care,
drop a chance in your hands then.
i know that bad's got to fix itself, correct over time.
and i know 'cause i've got the cure, i've got a cure for your crimes.

all i dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
all i said to you, all i did for you seems so silly to me now.

screaming like no one might call the cops and arrest you this time.
standing back against my building's back door, you're hoping for a ride.
i know the world's been mean to you, i've got a cure, hold tight.
i know the world's not fair to you, i've got a cure for it's crimes.

all i dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
all i said to you, all i did for you seems so silly to me now.

outlier for women

i recall a guy friend rocking some outlier pants and they looked and felt wicked sweet. i quite enjoy men in outlier gear. i'd also quite enjoy myself in a pair of outlier pants. here's outlier catering to women's needs, as you do. the daily riding pant. can't wait to get my hands on a pair of these.
"Lean, sleek and made of our core 4Season fabric. Full performance features, in an elegant and slimming silhouette. The four way stretch and soft inner face of the doubleweave twill fabric ensures you're always riding in both comfort and style. Wear them into to work or out for drinks, rain or shine you'll be stepping off your bicycle looking good and feeling better." - outlier

i heart olivia

didn't your mother ever tell you: -
"if you haven't got anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"
... unless it is well deserved, some things are better left unsaid. i think civil people live by this or at least consider it before opening their traps. unless you're either 1) evil; 2) socially inept; or 3) you couldn't care less about anyone but yourself, which i guess correlates with point 1.

i honestly don't see what kind of pleasure or satisfaction people get out of putting others down. in my opinion, such people are a waste of time and space. please kindly leave your callous comments to yourself or escort yourself out of the building. ta ta.

my hands are small, i know

popped by typo on my lunch break and found these. honestly, i don't need a mobile stand or bookends but i couldn't help myself. these bookends are kind of epic, right? i think i have too many white objects in my room now. time for a mass cull?
