Loly Adds A Supersized Emoji Sparkle To Your iPhone

Love this….!

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Move over boring old static smiley face and wine glass emoticons, Loly is a new, bigger, prettier emoji app now available on the App Store. Online fashion pioneer Gina Pell created the new app to fill a need for the “chic and stylish” to have a better way to express themselves.

Pell is the founder of early e-commerce fashion site Splendora. That got acquired by Joyus a few years back and Pell has been working there ever since. She likened the creation of Splendora to her new venture Loly and says she even sketched out all the emoji herself before handing it off to a design team. “Emoji and emoticons have been such a hot topic lately which is why I created something I thought was sorely missing in the market,” says Pell.

There are six distinct categories of emoji in Loly:

This set of stairs at Kitakata Station really cares

well said…….!

When it comes to going up and down in life, stairs really seem to be the most inconsiderate. Rather than carrying you along like your friends the escalator or elevator, stairs just seem to lay there without moving an inch to help you.

Even in Japan where politeness is a way of life, the stairs still just sit there waiting for us to do all the heavy lifting. All except a few flights of extremely well-mannered stairs located in Kitakata Station in Fukushima Prefecture. While they don’t physically help you to go up, they do still have power… the power to move you.

Los Angeles

While I ponder about going with the idea of ” Any port in the Storm ” I question myself. How cemented am I in Los Angeles? What I have in LA will I have in the desert? Can I deal with multiple moves? Cause that’s what it will be, in order to get into the apartment I need. Can I continue with this situation for another six to twelve months? Is it possible. I can’t rely on others for their kindness. It’s not fair. I got myself into this situation, so I have to deal with it.

There are many pros and cons to both places, there are just a little more pros in Los Angeles. Those few are important ones. They took a year to cement, my medical team, my eastern treatment team, and I’m building some new friendships. Not that this won’t happen in the desert, but it will take time again. Most likely another year or so. Is it worth the same amount I would save if I hold on here?

There’s a good chance something might come up in the desert in either November or December. The one complex has a high turnover with studios. Their about 300 sq feet. And once I take that I go on the list for a one bedroom. Now again nothing has been offered so this is just in the back of my mind. But at any rate can I move back to the desert is the question after being gone for 11 years?

And yes I am on waiting lists here in LA that might start popping.

So I will be patient and wait until something happens……..

BE PATIENT………..!
