“These were the girls that the boys who fought in World War II and the Korean War came back to marry,” Meisel says. “It was about getting a little house in Levittown and bringing up their two or three kids. Both male and female pinup artists painted for that.”
THE IPOD TRANSPLANT
I decided to revive my old iPod photo which died on me a long time ago.
I found a CF Adapter from a Hong Kong merchant on eBay, bought a repair kit from CDRKing, and, after a long search, found a cheap 32GB CF Card from local camera shop.
Our relatively newer 4GB iPod Nano was running out of room for the kids’ music. Full disclosure it’s Taylor Swift and One Direction.

I take it as a small luxury the way I still have some time to write down some of my thoughts online. I don’t remember the last time I wrote anything for myself, except those scattered thoughts on Twitter and those ubiquitous #hashtags on Insta-gratification photo sharing site. But I’m trying to change things this year.
Boxing. Me, Kenneth and some officemates have been going to the boxing gym together. It’s a challenge doing it lately because of the summer heat, so bothersome that Dino has christened it “Bikram Boxing”. I get to take my mind off things for a huge chunk of the day, staying there for 4 hours on average. It’s also time for everyone to catch up because we tend to take a lot of breaks, especially when our trainer coaxes us to do the speedball, where he can barely see us. Heh. I think I just do 3 minutes of that and then I just keep watching Ina, Kapatid, Anak on the common TV area (updated sa showbiz happenings). I take the weightlifting seriously tho, but sometimes I get frustrated I don’t lose enough weight (~body image problems~). I know I’ve built some muscles but I’m still at that stupid phase where I think I can be stick thin.

The photo above was taken by Reuters photographer Siegfried Modola, who traveled with a group of salt miners into the desert and then followed their haul all the way back to the marketplace. You can see his full slideshow of images online. I chose this one because it gives you a view of the salt as it’s found on the ground, and the neat, rectangular blocks the merchants cut it into for shipping.
