VLog: TKTC Favorite Things

Also known as... 10 full minutes of your life that are not refundable. Not from me anyway, I'm not sure what kind of pact you've got goin with your sources upstairs or downstairs. No more typing....just awkward camera angles and random things from around my apartment:

i haven't been able to watch it yet, since my work computer does not have a sound card (ummmmm wtf?), but SRSLY. a girl who looked EXACTLY LIKE YOU stopped me a few weeks ago and asked me for directions in downtown madison. this is a nutso question, but that wasn't ACTUALLY YOU was it?

at the time, it vaguely crossed my mind that she looked like you, but now that i've seen video of you, i am even more convinced that she was your evil twin.

Katrin said...

Honestly, I only made it through the first one (yet), but it is really sweet and you can actually see you relax after first minute or so. And I AM going to watch that Philadelphia film. Promised! :)

Slimbo said...

THE BLUEBIRD!!!


mad props

TKTC said...

Elle: Wine night. I know it's really been silly crazy time- Sunday dinner?

Ang: I loved YOURS! METH!It's the worst!

Overcoat: Hahaha- no, that was not actually me. I haven't been to Madison since March. Was she evil? Cause I sure am. Maybe I'm her evil twin.

Katrin: Thanks! And I don't blame you for bailing at the halfway point. The cat and the word "orgasm" made an appearance in the second half along with some kitchen equipment but other than that...meh? Can't wait to hear your review for Philadelphia Story- good one to watch with Marten!

Brother/Slimbo: Hell yes. It's going to be "experiential."

Your Ill-fitting Overcoat said...

Dangit! Yes, maybe she was your "Good Twin"...

Beamer said...

Excellent thing-tour. I wholeheartedly agree on The Philadelphia Story. One of my favorites as well.

Jenn said...

"My bathroom isn't really the bathroom."

How awesome are you?! Very!

Jamie said...

hahah you are so cute and seem like so much fun. I'm sad the one time I met you, you were running out the door!

Narm said...

I would kill to have my office be an extension of the kitchen. "Hold on, Johnson, my waffles are done." Sign me up.

lfar said...

You make such warm facial expressions! Like you're saying "it's okay to tell me secrets!" Haha, is that weird? Probably.

nicoleantoinette said...

I have a big fat f*cking crush on you, haha.

LOVE THIS!

Alexa said...

hey, i've been there! besides loving your vlog, i'm loving your earrings! love.

shanti said...

Jessi...
you're so darn cute. I totally tried to make a vlog once and felt so dumb i didn't post it. apparently everyone feels dumb even though it's far from it. you talk differently than i would've expected and that's not a bad thing.

i'm slightly drunk so please excuse if this comment doesn't make sense.

So@24 said...

Looks like your video blog was a hit!

Gotta give the people what they want now... you raised the bar

Courtney said...

this is so much fun!! and you are so stinking adorable. love your favs and i, too, need to see that movie.

Jonk said...

That was fairly awesome. Great job.

TKTC said...

Beamer: Well, welcome! And thank you for bringing ready made good taste to TKTC. I do happen to like a lot of current films as well, it just seems like most of my faves are old or foreign. I think I like a lot of things old and foreign, actually.

Jenn: Wait till you see it. I do have indoor plumbing that works just fine thank you but it’s the tiniest place. My knees go under the sink and hit the door when it’s shut.

Jamie: I think we need a re-do. I want a lady-blogger get together that starts with make-up and ends with wine downtown somewhere.

Narm: Don’t be fooled, that was my “home office.” My “official office” has high walls but no ceiling, old post card prints and a map of the United States. And is in one of the bigger buildings in Chicago’s Loop. i.e. Not in my house with a white shag rug and backing up to a mammoth pile of laundry.

Lisa: That’s actually one of the nicest compliments I think I’ve ever gotten. For real, what a sweet thing to say! And yes, I am a bit of a Venus flytrap for secrets. Largely because I am incredibly curious… although I’m pretty good about not spilling the Code Red ones. And I LOVE surprises so don’t expect any big reveals from me when it comes to those- I bullshit with the best for a good surprise! Although when I’m not buying it (whatever “it” is) I can’t hide it. Dead giveaway in the eyes and not a thing I can do about it. You’re that way too though!

Nic: I think we have developed one of the greater Vlog games of all time. I’ll leave it at that though because I’m so good at surprises.

Alexa: You HAVE been there! You have used my tiny bathroom and had mimosas out of little carafe vases and eaten ungodly amounts of brunch food been tipsy in the middle of the day watching YouTube videos. You have definitely been there and thanks, I love my earrings and everyone (onlyone) they make me think of…it’s lovely. How do you say “It’s goddamn bliss” in Greek?

Shanti: You’re officially going to get called into the Vlog game. You and So@24 had far different expectations for how I sound- thinking more Dixie perhaps? It’s a little repressed but it’s in there someplace, hiding out in a 1967 Southern Living spread with 2 fingers of Bourbon and some fried green tomatoes. In the meantime, how funny is it to get to see everyone this way? I’m loving it!

So@24: Holla atcha girl. We’ll see. I don’t believe in second takes so if I ever do switch from cranberry juice to wine, I’m not sure how that lines up professionally.

Courtney: Thanks, Ladybird! How’s that kitten adjusting to the domestic life? And I would love to see a favorite things post out of both you and Urabn Grace- so many degrees of fabulous happening among the Southern Glam set!!

Jonk: Well thanks, can you believe there was no music involved? I tsked myself for it later but then I remembered that I couldn’t find my Sufjan Stevens Illinois CD and figured the iPod would be a leetle bit lame. Your turn. You should pick your favorite band of the week and V-Cast it on Fridays.

Sara said...

HAHA omg i love your vlog! i want to do this for tumblr!

joner said...

you, licking your happy spoon, made me happy :)Good to see you dear friend (if only through video blog)... :)

pbandrazz said...

adorable!

you are rocking out the wrap - i like!

and yes, you should definitely do a tour of your bathroom.

surviving myself said...

I had to stop watching at almost the end because I had to do some work, and when I came back your face looked like you were screaming at me. So I left it that way because it was funny.

Cora Hardin said...

you are the cutest!!!
