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

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
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.

What I see, is what you get.

bronxelf says:

Well technically, jay got it for me, but thank you!

I have one of those in red. I already had a respectable plain wooden knife block, so I kept trying to resist, but I eventually gave in.

bronxelf says:

I have a plain wooden one also, but this is so much cooler. I had no idea they made them in chrome too, which is really neat.

Tori says:

So far every friend who has spotted it in the kitchen has loved it. This means if I actually find it in chrome, I can buy that for my kitchen and thrill a friend by passing on my red one.

So far I find that most people want to pull out the knives and shove them back in. Then when they discover the magnet, it causes them to remove and insert a couple of times. About half of the people name off all the parts that have gotten stabbed.

I haven't actually set mine out yet. I suppose I should do that now, before I have to pick up the wash from the dryer..

11th Oct 2006, 10:20

bronxelf says:

I can't wait to put it out. After I finish cleaning the refrigerator later this morning.

Geodyne says:

You finally got one!

It's perfect. With the perfect name.

Christmas is coming.

Red, Black or Chrome?

EVILMINK269 says:

Chrome, please LOL!

Hey Elf, Capi was worried about you since the whole plane crash in Downtown shoot her an email?

12th Oct 2006, 07:40

bronxelf, nli says:

Dont know why she's worries, as I posted in my LJ as soon as I woke up this morning. She can see it.

12th Oct 2006, 07:43

EVILMINK269 says:

You know Capi, ever the worry wort.

12th Oct 2006, 14:45

bronxelf says:

Yep. But she apparently knows all is well. She commented a couple times on things this morning.

12th Oct 2006, 20:39

i have this one as well, in red. i believe it to be the true and appropriate color for such a statement. your mileage may vary, however.

bronxelf says:

red doesn't match my kitchen.
