Posted in personal by verbalcroquis on September 30, 2008

Happy birthday, my dear. It has been almost 3 years since we’ve “met” through our blogs. Three years of good times and long talks and watching each other’s careers soar and falter and take off again and swapping anecdotes and advice and laughing till we cried and crying till we laughed.  You are so ridiculously talented and it has been a joy to watch more and more people recognize that ridiculous talent of yours over the years. I hope you have an amazing day and I hope lots of people come to your party to celebrate you in lieu of those like me who are far away.  Love you lots and I hope to see you soon!

Welcome to the first, hot off the presses issue of “random notes”.

-So, I hear there is a brand new small volume vertically integrated factory opening up right here in Oakland! And spitting distance from my digs! *raises one eyebrow* I have pinged appropriate parties for more info so you will get it as I do!

-NYFW. Nothing I’ve seen so far has wowed me. Yes, I’m definitely a designer who can appreciate other people’s work. Just haven’t seen anything this season yet.  How ’bout you?

-I’ve been doing a lot of just plain hard thinking the past couple of weeks. Starting tonight, I’m gonna start some doing.

starting “random notes”

I don’t know if you readers have picked up on this yet, but I’m a rather random, rambly person.  Verbalizing linear thought is not my strong suit, although I’m capable of focusing on a single action for a long time.  That’s one of the reasons why this blog is called “verbal croquis” not “verbal marble sculptures”. Heh.

I’m starting a section of this blog called “random notes”.  They will be brief bits of what’s going on with me and hopefully intersperced with the meatier blog posts that have become my most popular.  Feel free to poke me a ping when my blog becomes too many snacks and not enough substance.  I might even *gasp* post something on F-I again! (No promises, so don’t faint yet, Kathleen!)
