Archive for April 2010


Picked up something today and thought it’d be nice to give away to a reader.

To enter, just leave a comment with your name and what makes you geek out. For me, as if it isn’t already obvious, it’s Japanese stationery. They-make-that-for-that??, sometimes impractical, but always pretty and ingenious. I’ll take entries up til a week from today on April 29, midnight New York time. I will ship anywhere :)

Immediately reminded me of this :(

Moon Geun Young in InStyle

I really hate this hair trend of plastering on really, really heinously long extensions (see: all of SNSD), but obviously the long hair thing is somewhat important for Moon Geun Young’s character in “Cinderella’s Sister,” and she looks lovely. The first two shots are lovely enough to frame.

(And what’s with leaking 10 minute cuts from the upcoming episodes? Is nothing sacred?! Must stay away at all costs.)
