unless...


The Lorax said nothing. Just gave me a glance.

 just gave me a very sad, sad backward glance...
as he lifted himself by the seat of his pants. 

And I'll never forget the grim look on his face
when he heisted himself and took leave of this place,

 through a hole in the smog, without leaving a trace.  

And all that the Lorax left here in this mes
was a small pile of rocks, with one word...
"UNLESS." 

Whatever that meant, well, I just couldn't guess.

That was long, long ago.
But each day since that day
I've sat here and worried
and worried away.
Through the years, while my buildings
have fallen apart,
I've worried about it
with all of my heart. 


"But now," says the Once-ler,
"Now that you're here, 

the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear.
UNLESS someone like you 

cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better.

 It's not. 
 
"SO...
Catch!" calls the Once-ler.

 He lets something fall.
"It's a Truffula Seed. 

It's the last one of all!
You're in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds. 

And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs.
Plant a new Truffula.Treat it with care. 

Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air.
Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack. 

Then the Lorax
and all of his friends 

may come back."

1976:

I didn't have the above back then, but a friend of mine did. I bought a copy on ebay a few years ago, though. I remember this magazine got me interested in Dynamite and Laverne & Shirley. As far as Laverne & Shirley goes, while I found the show extremely hysterical back in the day, I can't sit through any of the episodes anymore. I don't think the show has held up well through the years, but maybe that's just me..

Rebound:

I received this game in the Christmas of either '71 or '72. I'd forgotten all about it until today. It was never really a favorite of mine, but my folks liked playing with it. Sometimes I think that's the only reason they got it for me. That's okay, parents gotta play too every once in awhile.

Question: What do you get when you combine The Brady Bunch with Soul Train?:

Sadly, we all know the answer to that one...

You can't have it all...

I had tons of stuff when I was a kid, and my parents pretty much got me whatever I asked for, so this isn't a whine post. When I was around 4, I really wanted Dapper Dan, but since it was a doll it was out of the question. My neighbors had one but I wasn't allowed to play with it. Thank goodness for Mister Rogers, otherwise I probably would've never learned how to tie my shoes. Or button things....

Spring's Enchantment.

Topshop, Urban Outfitters, YSL, Chloe.

Hi Lovelies! Just wanted to share with you what I'm excited to see for Spring coming up.  Yes, as you may have noticed, I'm trying to stray away from winter's cold and get reacquainted with the beauty (and not to mention warmth) of Spring as seen from wearing less jackets, scarves, etc. in spite of it still being cold outside.

So, one thing I haven't shared with you yet is a favorite designer of mine.  I am in love firstly with Erin Fetherston's designs, but also am at the moment craving anything ChloĆ©.  The designs are whimsically romantic and beautiful and I see the Spring 2011 Collection my ideal vision for Spring.  Here are a few pieces I love.
Firstly the color combinations are sweet and delicate -- light and neutral shades of brown, pinks, whites.  Another interesting color I'm loving for Spring is teal or mint green and of course, I love dusty rose :).

In addition, here are just a few more other photos I've been adoring for Spring coming and have posted on my Tumblr.




Hope your weekends went well! And enjoy the week ahead, let me know of anything exciting coming your way too!  Speaking of exciting, I'm crossing my fingers I get into BARE Magazine, a student-run fashion magazine at UCB.  Ooh and I didn't get a chance to tell you about the BARE general meeting last week!  I got a chance to meet my fellow Berkeley fashion bloggers: Anisa of The Laugh Slut, Deanna of A California Dreamer, and Sherrie of Closet Hound.  They're oh so pretty and sweet in-person :).  Fashion blogger meet-up should be in the works soon! ;).
Have a fantabulous week lovelies!  And thank you again for the support on my Youtube Channel :).

<3, Kathleen.

HONDA REVO TECHNO AT

Since its introduction, the first automatic duck in Indonesia, Honda Revo AT Techno start a new trend combines comfort with typical agility of a motor scooter with a duck.

Because the dense atmosphere usually found in big cities make use of automatic transmission motorcycles become a trend in itself.

In addition, the agility of a motorcycle must also have an attraction. These two things combined is dedicated to Honda through AT Revo Techno.Do not want to wait a long time, detikOto opportunity to test this bike to explore the wilderness of Jakarta without a police escort as well as the usual testing done motor manufacturers.AT Revo technology that carries Automatic Continuous Variable (CV-matic) quite comfortable to drive, though somewhat disturbed with seats that are still hard as the standard Revo.
The path we choose to try out AT Revo is not a special track, but a typical jam-prone path Jakarta.
When the machine is turned on, the kitchen was 110 cc runway rumble. Once the gas, direct motor drive. When I first tried it, there is little sense clumsy. It's nothing, pass the custom motorcycle gear like a duck is no longer found in the Revo AT.

Footstep left the ordinary into the gears on the motor duck in general no longer exists.

Not long after leaving the AFP office in numbers Pejaten, South Jakarta, directly facing congestion.
In situations like this that carried automatic transmission AT Revo proven reliable. Moreover congestion we are forced to apply a stop & go is exhausting. But with automatic transmission, it did not happen.
AT Revo riding in a traffic jam feels very comfortable. Moreover, the agility of a motorcycle duck still exist in the DNA motor that has a wheelbase is 1252 mm.
No doubt, the action-skid salve amid congestion was so much better made than the motor matik like scooter. Ground clerance Revo AT 136 mm high as feels comfortable. Making the foot can tread the earth firmly.

Not only that, AT Revo Honda engine cooling system to adopt dual refrigeration and cooling air to the engine room CVT with engine motor oil the same as duck proved to be effective to maintain the engine temperature.

Any engine so it is not easy to heat that ultimately makes the rider comfortable because it is not too hot at the foot of the machine is located.

When night came and the atmosphere of the street began to sway, trying to spur detiOto motor that is sold at Rp 15.8 million (on the road DKI Jakarta) this.

Here AT Revo engine which has a maximum power of 7.68 PS at 8000 rpm with a torque of 0.81 at 5000 rpm kgf.m speak. Despite carrying the automatic transmission, AT Revo still can go up to 90 km per hour at Jalan Gatot Subroto long.

And most surprising is when it comes to the pump, because if another motor automatic transmission impressed 'thirst' to drink the fuel, which carry the AT Revo EFT technology (Efficient & Low Friction Technology) which serves to minimize friction between the components of the engine instead tend to economize.
