Text From Xcode

I don't know who is behind this hilarious tumblr, but it's awesome. One of my coworkers found it and it's been circulating around the engineering department.

I used to get the "cannot register with the bootstap server" message from xcode at least once a day. And don't even get me started on duplicate certificates and signing entity stuff.

Ah. It's only funny because it's true.

Kitchen Beauties

(photos via heath ceramics)

I just ordered these two beauties from Heath Ceramics. After much deliberation and reading of reviews on Amazon, I just couldn't go with something I didn't totally love (despite the convenience of ordering stuff through Amazon). I was looking for something with simple lines, something that will fit in with whatever color kitchen I decide to go with in my next apartment.

For as much tea/coffee I drink every single day, I thought this creamer and this sugar bowl were worth the hefty price tag. Aren't they pretty? Can't wait to share a cup of tea with mama this weekend!

Happy Birthday, Vova!


He gets to spend his day with mama (who arrived in NorCal on Tuesday) and his girl, E, floating around Napa Valley in a hot air balloon. What a jackass. (read: I'm so jealous.)

Walnut Animal Society

I just stumbled on this store from Joanna's blog. How cute is this raccoon? I have one of my own from childhood. It's a good looking Russian raccoon of the brown variety, but it does not have chambray shorts with red suspenders and a plaid bandana! *swoon*

This handsome guy even has a backstory. "Chester the Raccoon is a mischief-maker who is usually found scheming his way out of a pickle." Am I too old to like this? But honestly, it's $98. That's like a month's salary for my parents. They'd never buy me this. It just would not be fair if by the time I finally am earning enough money to afford cool toys I'm too old to get myself an awesome raccoon friend.
