I Love the Internet

Friday! Stuff I Tweeted.


Taken on the Upper West Side last week while I was waiting to meet Evan for dinner at Cafe Blossom.

I was getting tired of seeing the same post at the time of by blog day after day after day, so this post is here to make me feel better about being a blog-slacker. Actually, I just realized it’s Friday, so I might as well turn this into Stuff I Tweeted, right? Editing post title now…

There, that’s better!

If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know that I’m been super-busy lately. Not bad-busy, not sad-busy, not angry-busy…just super-busy. (Super Grover?) I’ve been working on a bunch of design projects for people whose work I really admire, and that feels SO nice. I missing out on a lot of sleep, to be sure, but it’s a good kind of deprivation.

Here’s some of the stuff I tweeted in between drinking coffee and researching fonts:

+ Daniel from Manhattan Nest is in the running in the “Tiny” division of Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool Home contest, and he really deserves to win. Can you believe his amazing apartment is only 425 square feet? Go here, log in, and add him to your favorites.

+ Morrissey has completed his autobiography, and it’s a mere 660 pages long. Even better, it looks as though it could be published by Penguin Classics. And how!

+ Orange soda + French fries = Love.

+ I really loved this article by Melissa Febos at the New York Times website about crying in public: “In some ways, that kind of transparency is as good a defense against interference as the famous blank New York stare.”

+ I designed (and printed, and trimmed, and assembled…) these wedding invitations for my big brother and his awesome fiancée. Sometimes it’s fun to design printed stuff that isn’t a book.

+ I’m still incapable of working at a desk. I do everything on the floor, stuff spread out all over the place. Like a 6-year-old.

+ Did you hear this story on NPR about Chuck Klosterman and “Delicate Steve”? Too funny.

+ I had a bad cold. Then Evan caught it. Now my cold is gone, but my cough lingers.

+ Dear Donald Trump: Please stop. Just…stop. You’re really not fooling anyone.

+ It’s alive! All vegan, all gluten-free, all brilliant and gorgeous! (via @IsaChandra)

+ I MET KATHLEEN! And Jeremy, too. You know, from the aptly-named blog Jeremy and Kathleen. And they are awesome! Totally my kind of people, just like I thought they’d be.

+ The new Beastie Boys video reminds me of how deeply satisfying it is to have been their fan for about 27 years now. They just never disappoint!

    Those invites are so good. :)

    I wanna meet kathleen too! & I wish I hadn’t been hot off the heels of (is that even a saying) nasty food poisoning when we met. Boo.

    oh, you. shucks.

    I’m off to check out those links but had to comment on your like for working on the floor. I’m exactly the same. Whatever arty activity I do I feel better on the floor as opposed to at a desk. But then I’ve always liked sitting on the floor :)

    I can’t even count all of the cameos in the Boyz’ video. And I absolutely love your invitations!

    Gorgeous invites! Am envious of your typographic suavé. Yes, swah-vey. What typeface have you used for the heavy names? It’s lush!

    • Reply Anna @ D16 April 23, 2011 at 12:20 pm

      Oh, that’s everyone’s favorite standby, Gotham Bold. :)

  • Reply Maggie April 24, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    Woot! The Beasties!

    so want to visit NY. It just looks amazing in photographs.

  • Reply Dave Bobrowicz April 25, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    I love Blossom Cafe! I go there almost every time I’m up in the city. What did you get?

    • Reply Anna @ D16 April 25, 2011 at 2:14 pm

      We go there all the time, and I almost always get the same thing—the soy bacon cheeseburger. IT’S SO GOOD. Everything else is good, too (love that southern seitan sandwich!), but if I don’t get my cheeseburger, I wind up sad. AND THOSE FRIES. GAH, SO GOOD.

      The Butterfinger shake is to die for, too. I usually don’t have enough stomach-room left to have one, though, sadly.

      • Reply Dave Bobrowicz April 28, 2011 at 10:16 am

        I usually get the southern seitanwich, a cup of earl grey & a heavenly slice of chocolate cake. Then I have to be rolled back to the subway. ;)

  • Reply Nina April 25, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Really like the invites! You brother can be happy to have a sister like you ;)

    The Beastie Boys video is so cool. Still jealous of my husband who got to go to the Beastie Boys concert at McCarren pool in Brooklyn in 07…

  • Reply Melanie April 26, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    I love those invitations! So simple and great. May I ask where you got them printed?

    • Reply Anna @ D16 April 26, 2011 at 7:11 pm

      Melanie, since they only needed 50 invitations, I made digital color prints on linen paper that I bought myself. (And yes, that means I trimmed them all by hand, too…)

  • Reply jessica define April 27, 2011 at 11:19 am

    damn, I haven’t had an orange soda in who-knows-how-many-years and now that’s all I can think about. I’m pretty certain it reminds me of happymeals as a kid.

    what brand is the best? is sunkist even the right thing? ugh… been too long.

    • Reply Anna @ D16 April 27, 2011 at 11:44 am

      I haven’t had it in YEARS, either! I can’t stop thinking about it now, though, and soon I’m going to have to give in to this orange soda/French fry craving that’s been haunting me.

      I’m thinking Sunkist is probably the way to go, right? Or Fanta? Or you could get all fancy and have Orangina, but that’s not really the same thing…

    I’d been an occasional reader of your blog for a while, but since my boyfriend and I recently moved into a new apartment, I’ve found it absolutely essential. Your entries regarding creativity in apartment rental decor and improvements are priceless. I’ve looked to your blog for help on more than one occasion this past month, and I just had to thank you for that. I’m going to add you as a friend on twitter. xo

    p.s. I’m a huge Super Grover fan.

    p.p.s. When David Lynch’s coffee first came out a little over four years ago, I gave it to my coffee-obsessed boyfriend at the time for Valentine’s Day, along with a freshly made batch of “Blue Velvet” cupcakes (made with blue food coloring instead of red ha!)
