If there was ever any doubt that octopuses are “so hot right now,” let me convince you that it’s true. This weekend my friend and I were headed to the High Line and got waylaid because an Anthropologie was in our way. Whoops. I refrained from buying anything, but I sure did want these dishes!
I didn’t like these tumblers as much, but still, octopus.
After the Highline we started heading south to get a snack at Peanut Butter & Co. (delicious) and again we were waylaid by a Brooklyn Industries in our way. Again, I did not buy anything, but there was this ninja octopus t-shirt. If I didn’t have to dress nice-ish for work I’d probably wear t-shirts like this just about every day.
I wasn’t even on the lookout for blog fodder, but it found me. In nature news, the High Line is one of the most interesting bits of nature in Manhattan. It’s a park reclaimed from a derelict elevated train line that was used mostly by meat packing plants and Nabisco from the 1930s-1980. Now it’s a very meticulously designed public space that still has a wild, overgrown feel to it. The previous time I was there a beautiful little warbler was passing through (what species is anyone’s guess; there’s like a billionty warblers). I’d love to see some mollusks find their way up there, but the landscapers would probably not take too kindly to that. My favorite things on the High Line are these rolley chaise lounges.
