Stars in Brooklyn

12 Feb

Did you know you can still see the stars in Brooklyn?

In other news, I saw an Argyll Robertson pupil today, the so called prostitute’s pupil.

Burnt popcorn, burnt arm, burnt counter.

Three burns in the process of trying to save a cup from smashing on the floor. I’m up to three cups of coffee a day. It has been gently suggested to me that three cups a day is not good.

From Wikipedia’s Stages of Change:

precontemplation: people are not intending to take action in the forseeable future and are unaware that their behaviour is problematic.

contemplation: People are beginning to recognize that their behaviour is problematic and begin looking at pros and cons of their actions.

But I neeeeeed it…

Ads Seen: Hong Kong

21 Jul

Hong Kong has tons of plastic surgery ads everywhere.

Some slogans include “iLike 4S (shape, success, smile, slim)” with each S written under a picture of a different body part (a bum, a thigh, a smile, a tummy). I’m waiting for the iLike 5S to come out so I can get the iLike 4S for cheap off craigslist.

There’s also “Become Perfect” which I mistook for a wedding boutique ad at first (that would also be a little messed up) because it has a picture of a woman in a lavish white gown gazing into a gilded gold mirror, with a man in a suit peeping over her shoulder. He’s also looking into the mirror, and holding a pen up to the woman’s cheek. To draw the surgical cut lines, I presume.

Reminds me of the huge ads in the Air Canada Center advertising sportswear for women – a t-shirt that says “Future Trophy Wife”. Awesome!
