I love lists

Just to kickstart your Monday and to ease you into the rest of the week, here are some interesting stuff I found today:

To commemorate Women’s Month (that’s March), Flavorwire listed down the 10 most powerful women of literature. Very interesting read.

Though if you’re quibbling (as I was) why there were only 10, they did a follow-up: Readers’ choice: 10 more of the most powerful women in literature. For me, 20 is still not enough. I don’t think 50 is enough!

More kickassery, this time, on TV: 25 kickass TV heroines. My beef with this? Where are Ziva David (NCIS), Olivia Dunham (Fringe), the women of Firefly/Serenity, Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars), Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons (Damages), Sara Walker (Chuck), and Mrs Coach (Friday Night Lights)??

Music stuff, still from Flavorwire: A musical overview of Brett Easton Ellis’ ouvre. Ellis annoys me sometimes. He can really be self-indulgent. But he’s one of the few writers who can capture the 80s, I guess because he lived it. I want to download all the music in this list!

For the design-mad (practically all my friends), here’s a list of great design blogs.

And for the frequent flyers, here’s what a former flight attendant has to say: 10 things you’ll never hear your flight attendant say. Becoming a member of the mile-high club is not illegal — good to know! Hahaha!

Also good to know and because it’s summer and everyone’s going off somewhere: The 10 rules of packing. I think I’m a good packer, though I belong to the “bring it — you never know, you might need it” school of stuffing my suitcase. This one is a basic article, but still good to know.

Happy Monday!

Oops, I’ve been delinquent. I haven’t posted in so long. I see that my last entry was about my new niece. So cuuute. Anyways, to make up for it, will post some photos of what I’ve been up to for the past month.

Like this: An exhibit of the works of Verner Panton—he of the iconic chair Panton or S chair—at the Singapore National Museum. The one in the photo is the Visiona II, which is this surreal living space that he built in 1970 for the Cologne Fair. There’s a replica of it in the museum and you can go in and sit inside. You’re actually encouraged to go in and sit. At the press preview, we were inside for about 20 minutes. Cool, yes? The exhibit is until May 12 (photo courtesy of dishondesign)

Gift shop at the TCDC, where I think the Coven and the D&M will drool over the fab stuff, hehe…I love the red&blue canvas tote with the whale design seen on the bottom right. But I couldn’t buy coz it was freaking expensive! Around 3,500 baht! Too frakking overpriced, but it was cute and big enough for all the junk I put in my bag. Haay, next time…
