If you’re wearing white, you should be ashamed

Happy post Labor Day day. This means you get to omit Monday or Tuesday from the week, because you only get four days. Remember while you’re deciding, you still can’t wear white.

Why was this a great weekend?

1. Both Iowa State and Baylor won.
2. Exceptional tailgating despite the 100 weather.
3. Really mostly like the drawings I did for the book this week. I post stuff on Instagram sometimes. (@beckz_ or @IdRatherBeShort)
4. Homestead had a 75% off lots o’ ceramics sale yesterday. Bought some fancy plates and bowls.
*official announcement & justification for future meal photos on Instagram. In my defense, the plates are actual supermodels.
5. Really really inspired by Woody Allen and a little inspired by 90’s gangster rap this weekend. Also entertained by the very funny British sketch comedy, That Mitchell and Webb Look. Watched the whole season in no time. Check them out on Netflix. I’ll probably start referencing Numberwang, Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, and the BMX Bandit, so jump on the elitist foreign comedy train while it’s still hot [no rush; it will always be hot].
6. Speaking of foreign trains, I get to see my London pal Kinsey tonight. Thank God I live near Dallas. Haven’t hugged that firecracker in two years.

This week is fresh but it keeps getting better and better. I hope yours is already filled with joy.

*Nice work from Erik Marinovich for Friends of Type

        I don’t know, but prepare to be wangernumbed.
        Also, be sure to netflix “Peep Show” and youtube David Mitchell’s appearances on “QI” – it’s all comic gold.

        I’ve seen Peep Show. Brilliant. I need to look into this QI stuff first thing…

    When you need a pure, unadalterated feel good movie from Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris is as good as it gets!

    Can I still wear white if it’s part of a print? Because I think I’m only a few dresses away from a set of seven (so I could wear one every day of the week) of black & white print dresses. Seriously. I have a problem. I can be surrounded by dresses, find one that’s really cute, and if one of the options is a black & white print, I have to remind myself that I’m trying to keep my closet from looking like I have this problem. Fashion tangents are fun!

    I think between your rousing endorsement of That Mitchell and Webb Look and the impending return of Arrested Development, I might have to finally get on the cool kid train and sign up for Netflix. How have I resisted for so long?
