Dutch people are scary giants. at 6'2"/188cm there are few places where I feel short, but Amsterdam was one of those places.

There's a new private club that just opened in SF called The Battery. I guess it's based off the Soho Houses of london and nyc.

Apparently I live under a rock or am just really uncool because I had no idea such things existed. What are these things like? The Battery in particular sounds incredibly douchey, but the whole concept of these urban country clubs makes me irrationally angry.

Plenty stuff like that in Cambridge. Think there's also actually a members club that "anyone" can join.

In the end the club isn't the thing. If they let a random pleb in like us it'd just be like quite a nice bar. The thing is being in with the group which lets you in.

private clubs in a place where like 95% of the rich people are nouveau riche transplants seems so incongruous. but maybe that's the point.

I guess it all sounds very high school or old money european to me. Having this guy telling me that I'm not cool enough for his club makes me want to burn it down.

I also love this bit of cognitive dissonance:

“We want there to be all types of people: young and old, men and women, straight and gay, and different industries. We don’t want people who are just CEOs, we want people who are curious about others, and interesting themselves.”


People from finance and advertising will be likely less welcome, Birch said. “Nobody who wears a business suit to work,” as he put it.

I just got back from a visit to my sister at Uni. She's doing her second degree and I don't envy her. I still have nightmares about failing uni.

this is awesome. its also crazy ironic since the Soho House has tons of advertising types. my friend (also in advertising) is a member of this other fancy club. nothing says "technology" and captures the spirit of Xanadu like exclusive, isolated clubs for "curated" individuals

Human resources finally noticed after two and a half years that they've been accidentally paying for me to ride 1st class to work all this time. Bollocks! My day-in-day-out is going to get significantly worse now.

I love the test of pomegranate seeds but I hate the half-jelly, half-crunchy texture and also that they take 10 minutes to de-seed.

That sucks midvh - was it a good one? I used to have a wallet that was more expensive than the contents but now I just use a rubber band.

I'm going to make a zip wallet soon that I can put a chain on. I quite like biker chains and they can always be tucked away for different outfits.

Today my partner and I secured fabric for our first garment. This is a massive deal for us because we have to have it made up and minimums are huge.

I'll show it to you when it comes.
