Sass—Style Guide -
COPY / PASTE
The fact that the sass-lang site has a (really nice) living style guide inside of itself makes me wet my meta-panties
Reading about Sass @2:30am in the morning and writing sassy tweets about it. The colors and the use of open source typography is quite nice in use on the sass-lang site.
'Glad I didn't listen.'
'Do it for yourself.'
'Live a quiet life and work with your hands.'
'Live Simply' — I have this note called mantras. It’s where I put a quote if it really speaks to me—It’s usually something I stand for or something I need to remember. These are the four on it today.
Svbtle Network's Typography -
While not open source fonts, I really like the use of typography on the Svbtle network.
Updated the visual design of Hologram, Trulia’s open source Ruby gem which generates style guides – http://trulia.github.io/hologram/
Also, cute owl logo which helps conversion *
(I know, mega repost. Shh, this is more for my records.)

"Invented Here" -
I’ve had this tab up since last night when a friend linked it to me. I’m both surprised and unsurprised there’s a term for this. I feel less alone knowing it exists.
One quotation that sums up the philosophy of Invented Here is “Gee, it can’t be worth much if someone local thought of it first.”
In the context of having many images files…
Then there would be some sort of interface that searches for them. (Alfred-like. Right now I just load up file names and keep typing keywords until I find the thing I want.)
Sometimes, even now, I find myself lingering in the toilet longer than I should. And rarely to fix up my hair.
In my childhood house, the toilets were the only rooms that locked from the inside and not out.
I remember getting chastised for something, something I don’t think I deserved to be—usually something a child wouldn’t need to worry about just yet. They say knowledge is power, and when I discovered the other kids at school were allowed to play so much, so freely, be themselves, I tried my hand in controlling my own fate.
It didn’t go so well.
I ended up on the toilet.
And in the toilet I stayed, sometimes for hours, wondering, dreaming if it ever gets better.
