“i like it. what is it?” // a. burrill
because i am boundlessly pretentious and wildly childish when it comes to certain matters; i admit to feeling a momentary wave of glee when i know a little something about a little something, that very few others do. to be fair, if i made a list, it would be painfully short, but give me a little credit when on the odd occasion, it does happen.
i like using this not-entirely-well-known, (or at least it wasn’t when i started using it), korean eyeliner. i quite enjoy finding really lovely cups and saucers that will never match, and gorgeous posters that combine silver foil and quotes by shakespeare.
don’t misunderstand, i know i haven’t reinvented the wheel, but on the rare occasion when this gift redeems itself by being helpful instead of superficial, it sort of evens things out in my mind.
it is however, a wee bit discombobulating, when i’ve not heard of something that someone has been raving about for years, couldn’t live without, would be on their desert island list; that’s when i get a little bit of the crank. i want to like it too, i want to have heard about it too – it would help, of course, to know what it was first, but let’s all jump on the bandwagon and say we’ve been here forever, where’ve you been?
