AHH Ordering now.. such perfection. And to think I was actually trying to wait till Thanksgiving this year (like a normal person).
This has also been my dream ever since I saw Elf…
October 24th: It is officially Christmas in October! Go buy the She & Him Christmas album, “A Very She & Him Christmas” if you haven’t already. It has already taken me to the happiest of happy places and moved me to tears. This band was destined for a Christmas album. Thank you so much Zooey and Matt!

Old-Timey Subway Train Campaign of the Day: To promote the upcoming second season of its critically acclaimed period series Boardwalk Empire, HBO, with a little help from NYC’s MTA, will install a throwback subway train that will run through September 25th — the show’s premiere date.
Starting on Saturday, September 3rd an authentic vintage 1920’s train will run on the express 2/3 track in Manhattan throughout September (specifically, from 12 to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays). Originally operated by the Interborough Rapid Transit (IRT) system, the train began service back in 1917 and will once again be operational. Customers who have the opportunity to ride the vintage train will be transported back in time to the Prohibition era with authentic details such as rattan seats, ceiling fans and drop sash windows, as well as a custom branded interior featuring Boardwalk Empire-inspired period artwork.
NB: During the final weekend of the promo, HBO-branded people will be handing out complimentary MetroCards near the Times Square-42nd and 72nd street stations.
HAHA! This is awesome, and kind of brilliant. Well done, Boardwalk.

I’m not a guy, nor do I pretend to be an expert on menswear, but this just sounds so simple and honest I need to share it.
"Do you ever get that feeling that when you’re on a plane—since everyone is in a T-shirt and jeans—that it’s kind of hard to tell who’s who? It’s like being at the gym. You can’t really tell who’s cool or who has an amazing job, but you can always tell by the watch. So mind the watch."
