OUR TOTES 'N JOKES DIARIES
Well, color us self-satisfied. Because we think these are the funniest effing totes we’ve ever seen. I mean, come on: Circle playing the role of “Estranged Polka Dot?” Square masquerading as “Alienated Check?” And the lowly line dressing himself up as an “Abandoned Stripe?” TOO GOOD. One of our all-time favorite creative minds (and instagram accounts) Mimi O Chun came up with and designed this hilarity. Her genius truly blows our minds, and so do these totes, which are now available for 11 bucks a pop on our site.—claire

- Wanting more gummy, pasta-y Korean rice cakes in my life—and looking for ways to make that happen.
- Re-experiencing the amazingness that is F.A.O. Schwarz on Fifth Avenue. If you’re looking for a (weeknight) NYC activity, check out the Muppet Workshop or hit up the crayon bar.
- Dying over the opening paragraph of this New Yorker profile of art dealer David Zwirner.
- Understanding, for the first time, the sheer decadence of the everything bagel.
- Thinking Letters in the Mail—a subscription service from The Rumpus that sends you hand-written letters from authors—might be just be the best gift idea I’ve seen yet. Especially the kids version.
- Having a moment over head-spinningly amazing food art (art food?), courtesy of Flourshop, Mocomeshi, and my OG fave, Luxirare.
- Dying over The American Reader’s “10 Under 10 Writers to Watch”—a hilarious send-up of age-festishizing lists, self-serious writers, and the like.
- Discovering the wonder that is a jujube (yes, it’s a real fruit, not just a candy)—tastes like a cross between an apple and a date, and makes the perfect snack.
- Wishing I could live inside a Brigitte Sire photograph—seems like a pretty dreamy and happy place to be.
