google web fonts enabled

i’m really lovin’ the google web fonts service. i have a post about to go live on MoG soon… so i won’t gush much about it here.

i’ve put the pacifico font as the headers and the ubuntu font as the overall body font — pretty sharp

portlandia

definitely gotta check out the show portlandia… it’s a sketch comedy show filmed entirely in portland, oregon. they like to make fun of the hipster, artsy type of people that inhabit pdx. plus, i’ve always liked fred armisen

here are a few clips that made me crack up

cell phone plans

put a bird on it

house sitting rules

harajuku girls

outdoor movies

ordering the chicken


* this is what it’s like to go to dinner with chaunce (ha!)

simple technology

get a starbucks card account already!

this really only applies if you go to starbucks (no matter how often)

so i’ve been meaning to write this for a while now. i was going to write it on MoG, but i think i’d sound like a prick, telling people what to do… plus i don’t want to care about punctuation and grammar

anyway, there are several reasons to get a starbucks card account

  • consolidate all your cards into one – this is huge, especially after the holidays or a birthday
  • perks – free drink on your birthday, free syrups, free refills on brewed coffee/tea, free beverage with whole bean purchase, and free drink every 15 stars (gold level)
  • cool guy status – you’ll get a gold card (after 30 stars) OR you can pay for your order with the iPhone or Android app (pay with the app and people will think you’re from the future)

* there used to be a roundabout way to get free wifi (for 2 hours) at starbucks by reloading a gift card over and over… but they now offer free wifi (no time limit) in their coffeehouses

as greg always says, “everyone’s going cashless”

i can’t really see any cons in setting up a starbucks card account… are there any? if there were, the benefits would definitely outweight the negatives
