let's start the week off right

Eaaaassssy there, 'Anthropomorphic Monday', yes we see you sneering at us as we dish about the weekend and upcoming, non-work related things. Go shuffle some papers and solve the problems of the world, we have more important things to download as we sail into the seven seas of monday.....
First on the list:
Free music. I still really miss being able to make my digital mixed tapes. Mixed Tape Monday, was one of my favorite posts to do. It was a great way to ease on into the week. {If anyone knows of a replacement to the now defunct, Mixwit, please let me know}
Last week, my friend Michael, turned me on to this free download. Which, for lack of a better word {brain not working so great on Monday morn.}, rocks. It's NPR's FREE, South by Southwest 11 song download. Get yer, Music Monday on now. here
..................................................................
March 24 & 25: West Week at the Pacific Design Center, here in L.A. A great opportunity to hear presentations, see exhibits and meet some of your favorite designers. In particular I'm looking forward to hearing the Elle Decor presentation on which my friend, and fellow blogger, Mrs.Blandings, aka Patricia Shackelford will be joining Margaret Russell, Mayer Rus and Vicente Wolfe in moderating the event: "Giving a voice in the digital age-Navigating the new media landscape"
That begins Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. and is open to the public.
...................................................................
Also wanted to mention that over on The Skirted Round Table, the Tobi Fairley Interview is up. Tobi's work was featured on the cover of the March issue of House Beautiful. This is a great interview regarding the business side of interior design in particular. Tobi's beginnings are in accounting and business. With an MBA in hand, she parlayed her love of design into a successful, Little Rock based I.D. firm.
I think that's it. Now get to work, Monday's giving you the stink eye.
