I have elephant socks; also, an elephant plush

Here's a closeup of the pattern, from Forever 21's website:

It would look cute as a tiled wallpaper, methinks

Bought these as part of a fairly recent order from F21...okay, actually, they were the main reason I bought anything in the first place.  Plus there was free shipping.  In addition to these I got a fedora with a flower band that looked pretty nice for how cheap it was, a gray tank top with a kangaroo pocket, and a set of studs.  I was pretty pleased with everything.  I like how they wrap everything up in paper and tuck it all safely together, instead of just putting it in a plastic bag.  It seems neater, I guess.

Anyway, plush elephant!  Again, this is one of those things that I didn't really plan to make.  We are keeping it though because Bryan thought it was pretty cute (are we really in our 20s? haha):

100 Interviews

I forget how I stumbled upon this, but I'm glad I did.  100 Interviews is a project that journalist and comedian Gaby Dunn started last October--basically, she gave herself one year to interview 100 different people that she had never met before.  It's pretty interesting!  Here's some links to some sample posts:

An Abraham Lincoln Expert
Stephen Colbert (there's quite a story around this one)
A Porn Actor (i may have to, uh, check out this guy's work later)
Someone Who Married Their High School Sweetheart

100 Interviews' main website is here; I highly suggest you check it out!
