How to give creative direction:

Yes, I do, courtesy of Cindy Funk:

For any aspiring editors reading this, the answer to every creative question in the universe can ALWAYS be found within a picture of a bulldog struggling to complete a basic activity.

When it doubt, just use a picture of a cat.

I was promoted to Yelp Senior Editor a couple of weeks ago, in part because I’m good at giving creative direction:

If you’re curious, this is the cat Eve ended up using. Flickr Creative Commons does not have any good Sherlock animals for some reason. I mean, he looks like he could give you the 4-1-1 on something…?

I have no weekend plans except to see Titanic 3D, probably by myself.

How are they gonna handle the Kate Winslet boobies situation??? I’ve purposefully abstained from a Google investigation because I want to be surprised, so no one tell me. If I were Kate Winslet, I’d request they get blown up so big they fill the entire theater. 3D = triple D cup. So close you can touch them… but you can’t! xoxo

My degenerative eye disease

I am literally almost blind right now. WebMD made me think I had an eye disease but my doctor laughed in my face (maybe? couldn’t see his expression) when I gave him my self-diagnosis last week. In actuality, I need these special lenses put in my glasses because all of a sudden my subtle, kind of endearing cross eyes have decided to become super, not cute cross eyes. Now they overcompensate (i.e. turn in on themselves) when I look at anything, meaning I see two of everything and everything is extremely blurry because my eyes are exhausted from all the crossing they’re doing. I can only see my computer screen right now because I’m leaning the top of my Macbook against my forehead. Basically I’ve been pressing my face against everything I want to look at for the past two weeks, leaving a greasy nose print everywhere I go.

I was hoping to use this as an excuse to get some new grandma frames like these…

…but I couldn’t adequately survey any new options with the state of my vision, so I’m just getting new lenses put in my old Tina Fey frames. C’EST LA VIE.

One of the hardest parts of my job…

…is deciding on which happy dog picture to plug into the bottom of which (otherwise boring) email.

I love you, Buzzfeed.

How I think I look when I wear dresses

Body image issues, or do I just secretly want to be a power lesbian who wears skinny jeans and tweed jackets every day? Let’s not analyze it.
