So Monstro's been bugging me for suggestions of what I want for my Fibonacci birthday and Christmas, and after putting a Nikon D80 and corresponding SB-600 strobe, and some Jake Shimabukuro stuff on the list I kind of stalled out, so I went to gifts.com and did the “gift personality” quiz. Here's what I am, according to them:
Gifts for The Hipster hand-picked by our Gift Gurus
Morning Ritual: Decaf soy latte at a local independent coffee shop.
Uniform: Vintage, alternative, original — no head-to-toe trends for her.
On her iPod: Indie rock, downtempo electronica, local DJ mixes, YouTube videos.
Reading List: Art, film, music and fashion pieces.
Ride: If the sun is shining: her Vespa. If not: her Mellow Yellow Mini Cooper.
Mantra: Friends don't let friends drink Starbucks.
Famous Examples: Sofia Coppola, Maggie Gyllenhall, Chloë Sevigny.
I have way better eyebrows than Sofia, but other than that, it's pretty close.
Other than that, this week has been wretched. On the plus side, though, I no longer wish to eat dirt.
