What's age appropriate?

I'm 30+, so is it wrong for me to buy this:

If it is, please stop me from going to this site and sending them my billing information. Thanks.

"Everyday I do something that makes me cooler in everyone's eyes"--Pooja, 9.16.09 @ 4:06pm

My colleague Pooja just said that. I think she meant "crazier", not "cooler". For instance, right now, she's in my office playing a George Michael (really? yes.) song on her iPhone in the mistaken belief that I won't reach across my desk and punch her right in her face.
Oh, and this.

And that brings me to this point...

What ever happened to nuance?

Seriously, protesters, Kanye, Serena. How about we all start coming strong with some thoughtful repartee, some manners? I've about had it.
Oh, Field Negro. You find the greatest stuff.

Do you know Bud Caddell?

You should. He finds the most interesting things and collects them on his site. He always, as in the case of the photo above, links to where you can see the original source. I heart Bud.

I am not a crazy person.

Even though I just bought these.

At least I don't have an ankle tattoo ... yet. Shut up.

This is another film I'm waiting to see, The Curse of The Methuselah Tree:

From the site: “I am not part of history. No. History is part of me.” This is the story of the oldest living thing on earth and its unique view of human civilisation. With narration and specially-commissioned poetry by Roger McGough.

This original film combines beautifully shot footage of Methuselah, the 26-foot bristlecone pine, with reconstructions of the thousands of years it has witnessed. But what if such a witness could speak? For the first time this 4,643-year-old is given his own voice.

Hear the tree’s perspective on passing of ancient civilisations, the settlement of America by Europeans and the testing of atom bombs 100 miles away in the Nevada desert.
FYI, I refuse to comment on Kate Spade's new clothing line. There's too much chatter already. If I WERE going to say something, it would be nice. But, that's all I'm going to say.
