Inaugural Entry

On an average work day, walking from my car to our new office building in Santa Monica, I occasionally pass this restored Chevy parked in front of this particular apartment building. It demonstrates (to me) why putting colors that are almost—but not quite—next-door neighbors on the color spectrum is #1 great. To me.

Someone interested in Bakelite once told me that the opaque white sections (which mellow to yellow, as emphatically seen here) can be dramatically cleaned using one of the "scrubbing bubbles" bathroom cleaning preparations. Is that true? I'm going to feel a little weird either way.

Both photos were taken for a pre-1980 design photography mass-accumulation competition.

This concludes my inaugural entry: the entry made regardless of whether or not something specifically merits recording.

There's a diner near my house that has as accents all over the place appliances from the 30s through the 60s. Seeing 9 kitchenaid mixers of varying pastels lined up in a row is pretty dang neat, but on top of the ginormous gas range they have in the center of the dining room is a dish rack with a complete set of bakelite dishes and flatware.

It's gorgeous, and I want to steal it every time I eat their gingered pancakes.

You should make that dream (stealing) a reality.

I have made this page my start page in 4 different Web browsers on 3 different computers. That way, anytime I want to surf the Web I will be reminded whether or not Julie loves us all enough to keep her blog current. Yup.
(ps - screw you blogger, I am not signing up for an account just to get you to say my name for me.)

My goal is to really flesh this place out so it is worth visiting. (Projects & such.)

I didn't know that blogger urged you to either sign up or have to post anonymously. That is lame and livejournaly. Maybe there will be a better solution for me later.

Just sign your comment by adding —whoever at the bottom, which is really no different than putting an unverifiable name in a little box.

Julie: yay!!
