Hello I am Zin! Caution, time sinks ahead! But fun time sinks!
This past summer, our blog stats showed someone was looking for the search term: “Elaine finally understood why whenever she said something out of Gary’s intellectual grasp, he told her to eat a sandwich.” I am not sure why this search ended up here, but the sentence was interesting enough that I had to see it was a line from a story somewhere! So I did my own search, and I found a hilarious site by Molly Erdman called Catalog Living:
Catalog Living offers a glimpse inside the lives of the people inhabiting your home furnishing catalogs. Who keeps jars of starfish in their bathroom? Who uses stacks of color-coordinated books as a bedside table? The answer is Gary and Elaine, the unseen and often clueless couple who live their lives according to the gospel of Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel.
I should have seen it before since it was one of the Best Websites of 2011 according to Time Magazine!
And now I have discovered Molly also started a second site, Magazine Living where she does the same thing for “shelter magazines” like Architectural Digest via characters Martin and Gareth.
I have a lot of fun checking this site once a week! It has nothing to do with writing so I can not put it on our Cool Sites page but it is fun anyway!
The Sandwich quote? That is from this one:
