Music crush : Emily King

Attention: if you’re reading this at work, music will start once you click on the page. ;)

Emily King. Here’s a soul I would definitely like to meet one day.

Doesn’t it happen to you sometimes? You see someone in the street, or you sit across someone in the subway or hear someone talking at the table next to you at the restaurant, and you think : ”Yeah, I really wish I knew that person.” ?

Well that’s how I felt the very first time I heard a song by Emily King. And that’s how I’ve been feeling ever since, listening to the soulful and elegant folky/soul songs she’s been writing in collaboration with Jeremy Most.

Tall girl / short(er) guy : love without measure

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 months. Go.
You were born 2 minutes ago but you’re already 22 inches long.
You’re thin as a rail so on every picture of your first day on Earth you look like a starving child from one of these sad TV commercials. But you don’t care. You’re happy, you’re drooling and eating and sleeping is all that matters to you.
Bam. You’re 8 years old. You’re already taller than all your little friends at school but for some reason (…)

Men and Women : take your pick

Men and women from all over the world : you’ve been through this before, haven’t you ?
Your husband/boyfriend or wife/girlfriend kindly asks you to go pick something from the store for them. Something you have absolutely no clue what it is because as everybody knows now, men are from mars and women are from venus. And it seems like they’re used to shop on different planets, too.
But you love your soulmate so you go to the store and, well… you do your best.
If you’ve been there, this comic is for you.

A tall girl’s memories : Chinese jump rope

I don’t even even know if kids still play Chinese jump rope today – if not, they definitely should :)  - so for those who have absolutely no idea what it is I’m talking about - and for those feeling a little nostalgic ;) - there’s a video below the comic!    

Braiding your own hair

It always happens doesn’t it? You wake up, you look at yourself in the mirror, and suddenly this amazingly bright idea pops into your head : today you want braids.
Not the let’s-take-an-appointment-at-the-hair-salon-next-week kind of braids.
No.
The right-now kind. The it-will-only-take-an-hour-or-so kind.
