Old is Awesome

I love old things. I have a weakness for antiques, the older and uglier the better. I love old clothes, used and worn furniture, vintage luggage. Sometimes, I browse antiques on KSL for fun, even though I can't afford any of them. Old things have a history, a previosity (new word I'm making up-curiosity about what came previously) about them. Tattered ancient books that have been held and read and passes around for generations make me weak at the knees. Old things show progression, they show a value and substance to simplicity. It's like receiving insight to someone else's life. A moment of a different time captured in scuffs and nicks and dents. In the end, old is awesome.

A Tina Fey quote to brighten your day

"Every girl is expected to have caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama and doll tits.

The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes. Everyone else is struggling."
