Sagmeister, Inc.

Sagmeister, Inc.

I am always on the look-out for cool and innovative ways to present navigation on my website (even though right now its pretty plain and straight forward aka time for a face lift?) I stumbled upon Sagmeister, Inc. a wonderful design company with a great and interactive website. I particularly like their ANSWERS page.

Old Room, Same Pijamas

I am home in Columbus, OH for the weekend. This is the first time I have slept on a real bed in three months; and it's mine.

The walls, shelves, table, closet, bed spread; they are all empty. The only evidence of my former existence in this room is a plastic rolly-chair floor mat that is covered in crazy puffy paint/acrylic creatures and figures that I painted in high school when all I did was sit in my room listening to AFI and Interpol drawing and dreaming of places that were far beyond the boundaries of good 'ole Hilliard, OH.

Fast forward six or seven years later...I am laying, stomach flat, in the middle of this empty and surprisingly spacious room about to blast some Madonna and dance around and do cartwheels in my Hello Kitty pijamas. I guess in this situation less is more, and that is perfectly fine with me.

Am I Elaine Benes?

Over this past summer (May 2010-August 2010) my good friends Carolyn Slebodnik and Joey Marulli made the observation that I am very similar to Elaine Benes, 1/4 of the great cast ensemble of Seinfeld. The similarities in personality were mind blowing and I chose to not take any offense to this comparison at all. I love Seinfeld. I love Elaine.

Fast forward to last night: December 18th 2010 - my friend Nicole, who has no relation to Carolyn or Joey, asked me (and I quote) "Has anyone ever compared you to Elaine from Seinfeld?" then proceeded to show me this clip in which she noticed how similar we are.

Here are some similarities:
-Loud laugh
-judgmental inner monologue
-absurd conclusions
-obscure conclusions
-hand gestures
-laughing at inappropriate moments
-giving advice
-doing whatever it takes to get what she wants (aka tennis racket/ soup nazi)

This is very interesting to me, and I will continue to investigate this comparison even further:
