Where the Wild Things’ Clothing Are

I want these. But I don’t live in a place with Opening Ceremony stores and I can’t find any place to buy them online and I probably couldn’t afford a piece of lint off them. But I love them. They make me happy. More designers should use children books for inspiration–like Dr. Seuss! I want some Thneeds! oh wait, no I don’t. DID I NOT LEARN ANYTHING FROM THE LORAX?! (a challenged book btw–Happy Banned Books week!) I DO NOT NEED A THNEED! but I could use a daisy-head Mayzie hat?

Steve just said “Did you find where you can buy them yet? No? well maybe Victoria Secret will make you a cheap Wild Things Romper. You love rompers.” He’s right. I do. and that would be awesome.

Roald Dahl v. “Dr.” Seuss? Not even a question. RD could smack Seuss down any place, any time, all the time.

So I’m up in my office where I should be doing some homework, but instead I am looking at a Dr. Seuss website. I clicked on the playground button and saw that I could write my own story! That’s exciting! So I went ahead and typed my name in the box it told me to and then I typed in a title for my story. I picked a background for scene 1 and then I picked 2 characters and some background music. Then I get to the next part where it told me to type in stuff for the Mayor to say. What?? I thought this was a game, not a facade to make me write my own dang story. I was fully expecting to just be able to point and click. Make me use the keyboard? How dare you Mr. Seuss. That’s right, I called you mister. Not doctor, because I’m almost certain that you are not a doctor. Wait, let me check on that. [Insert pause while I am checking this accusation out] Ok I’m back and I’ve done some wiki’ing. So Mr. Seuss, I am just saddened by the fact that you call yourself a doctor when in fact you are just a drop out. What the heck were you thinking about when you wrote that book about going places? People give those books to other people who have graduated…I feel like you are a sham. I am so saddened by this… I’m just going to have to transfer all of the love that I used to feel for you over to Roald Dahl. I’m a huge fan of RD…he got his tonsils cut out old school style- he didn’t even know that they were going to cut them out until they just did it and he was all like, WTF guys? He also got to taste chocolates for Cadbury, so things turned out alright for him. You know what? I’m going to start calling Roald Dahl, Dr. Dahl….he didn’t even ask me to! I just did it because I wanted to. See that Mr. Seuss? You have to earn my respect, and I’m sorry, but I will never try green eggs and ham because if those foods are green, it probably means they have gone bad, and I’m not interested in getting food poisoning.

So in conclusion: Dr. Seuss…not really a doctor, Roald Dahl = definition of awesomely amazing, Mr. Seuss is cool with children eating green food and getting sick.
