These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

May I suggest making sure you have adequate cover? The explosion should be impressive.

18th May 2005, 17:33

Joe says:

I have my lead suit on.

bronxelf says:

Totally unrelated? But Amy just emailed. I aced my ceramics paper.

Joe says:

18th May 2005, 17:41

bronxelf says:

No, that was business ops. Ceramics was last night, the first one I wrote when I woke up.

18th May 2005, 17:42

Joe says:

well done you!

18th May 2005, 17:42

bronxelf says:

I have no idea how I wrote the paper I just *did* with all that happened this morning.
And managed to remember to print out the new 3d models.

18th May 2005, 17:43

bronxelf says:

Wow I only wish any of that made sense. :)

But he's off to pay the ransom on his parcel. So we'll see what gets blogged....

alfie says:

They say that it's not in the depot but is instead ready for re-delivery, I've arrange for re-delivery to my work address, and they cant guarantee tomorrow....


Im just going to cover myself in a duvet and sweat it out.

I fucking hate the royal mail.

ed- the trouble you've gone to on this, and the jsut plain amazingness of you, I can't even begin to tell you how cool you are, it will arrive, oh yes it will.

18th May 2005, 18:04

alfie says:

I am hoarse from shouting both from down the phone to the customs and excise people today, and now in the fucking parcel room.

18th May 2005, 18:05

daz says:

Let them have it!

bronxelf says:

*finding this entirely believable-- predictable, in fact*

18th May 2005, 18:07

bronxelf says:

Im so sorry Alfie. I never meant for this to be this much trouble.

18th May 2005, 18:08

Euphro says:

I have to go and have baby now but I will be thinking of you all tomorrow. I'm really sorry that this is happening :(

18th May 2005, 18:09

bronxelf says:

Euphro: Your thing is more important.
Go have a baby and blog OTHER THINGS than the delivery room action okay? :D

NO squicky birth blogging! We are all going to wait for results, man!

18th May 2005, 18:11

Joe says:

oh shit! in all this excitement...I totally forgot about your impending new arrival!...GOOD LUCK! Euphro and Mrs Euphro....we'll be thinking of you :)

18th May 2005, 18:12

alfie says:

anticipation is the mother of....


erm?

fucksticks.

18th May 2005, 18:13

daz says:

Euphro: It's coming today?! Good LUCK! :D

18th May 2005, 18:14

alfie says:

Euphro is having a baby!?!?!?!

how did I miss this?!

Dude!! good luck!!!!!!!!!!

18th May 2005, 18:14

bronxelf says:

Im so sorry. :'(

*sigh*

18th May 2005, 18:15

Lyzardly says:

I suggest all mobloggers send postcards to Alfie from cameraphone pics of our bums with captions like "The Royal Mail Sucks Arse!"

18th May 2005, 18:19

Lyzardly says:

p.s. YAY for Baby Euphro's impending arrival!

18th May 2005, 18:20

alfie says:

haha @ lyz, silly person :)

Although a collection of all your arses would make fine voodoo material.

18th May 2005, 18:28

daz says:

I'm very hesitant to moblog my ass (and my phone does not have a "panorama" feature :P), but otherwise I think it's a great idea! :D

18th May 2005, 18:36

daz says:

SHARE!!!

18th May 2005, 18:38

Lyzardly says:

I think that rather than moblog my ass, I will moblog random asses.

Puppy ass postcard, Drunk boyfriend ass postcard, may even visit a strip club for stripper ass postcard.

Oh the possibilities...

18th May 2005, 18:41

daz says:

*spark*

Oohhh, I'm inspired!

18th May 2005, 18:43

bronxelf says:

The Royal Mail does not, under even the remotest circumstances *DESERVE* a photo of my ass.

Period.

18th May 2005, 18:45

daz says:

*g*

18th May 2005, 18:46

alfie says:

ass blogging!! oh the hilarity.

And daz? You have hit my mark for brain echoing quote of the week with

"I'm very hesitant to moblog my ass (and my phone does not have a "panorama" feature :P)"

for just pure fuckign comedy genius.

thread of the month....
*wipes beer from monitor

18th May 2005, 18:55

neel says:

Okay. What's this all about? I mean, I go off to watch a few Simpson's episodes and I come back to find Alfie soliciting international arses, bronxelf about to explode, the Royal Mail sucking even more horendously than previously - and Euphro's getting a mini-Euphro?

Best of luck to everyone!

18th May 2005, 18:57

Joe says:

oh and I don't care how much you want to see my ass Alfie...it's not gonna happen.

18th May 2005, 19:02

daz says:

*explodes into a giggle fit*

Alfie: I aim to please.

;)

18th May 2005, 19:09

teflon says:

assblogging? does nobody remember the whole citybum fiasco? :)

Rich says:

Jesus guys, I leave you alone for five minutes and what happens? Now everyone calm down or there won't be any pudding.

Absolute insanity, everywhere I see.

18th May 2005, 21:11

alfie says:

fucking nuts hey rich.gah.

18th May 2005, 21:12

McN says:

Ok, I have a nice little card here from the Royal Mail. They tried to deliver a parcel to me today, but I was out (I do actually got to work, occasssionally.)
Incidentally there is a tag line on the card that says "With us it's personal" - too damn right, says Bronxelf.
I think the parcel is my new Coolpix. If it isn't I've just sent £200 to some dodgy internet company for nothing.
Assuming it is my camera, the first pic I take will be of a Postman's arse.
I'll blog it tomorrow.

18th May 2005, 21:20

bronxelf, on boingo says:

woulda all been FINE if theyda just charged it sender-side.... to quote Bug, they can eat a box of dicks.

18th May 2005, 21:23

Joe says:

a whole box?...calm down now...jeez

18th May 2005, 21:53

bronxelf says:

Hey, it's Crickett's line, not mine.

18th May 2005, 21:56

Geodyne says:

I am so late on this - this is what happens when I sleep in the wrong time zone.

But...*headdesk*.

Inefficient fuckers. And you know it takes a lot to get me to say that.

19th May 2005, 02:11

bronxelf says:

You know me pretty damned well, Geo, so you know this. It's not the fucking cash that's at issue here.

19th May 2005, 04:43

Geodyne says:

Of course it's not. It's the ineptitude. And the total lack of sense of the process.

I'm totally with you on that.

19th May 2005, 04:50

bronxelf says:

It makes perfect sense that I should pay it-- I *sent* it. I have *no problem* with that. What I object to is that they jerked him around, are having him pay *for his own gift*, and that they told him what was in the damned box. (which had me crying for hours.)

19th May 2005, 04:57

bronxelf says:

he knows, but doesnt really know. it's the difference between "cow" and "most incredible cow ever that isnt like any other cow, ever, in the history of the universe."

No, I did not get him a cow.

19th May 2005, 05:11

bronxelf says:

If it even shows up today. Alf said that they couldnt guarantee it would even arrive today at this point.

It's a very special cow. It not only gives chocolate milk? That bitch makes egg creams. (which I just realized means NOTHING in the UK....)
