December 24th, 2008 by Larry

Name(s):
Catherine and Lauren Lee

Aka:  
The AsianCajuns

Website:

Where are you from?
Born and raised in the D.C. ‘burbs.

Who do you work for? 
Catherine – City of Decatur. Three cheers for municipal government!
Lauren – Lampe-Farley Communications, Inc. as a graphic designer.

What are your Current Project(s)? 
C – At work: updating the city’s website. At home: creating a playlist with a New Year’s theme, knitting a teapot cozy and beefing up the blog.
L – Turning the blog into a full-blown website, illustrating/painting, and making traveling plans around the world (pipe dreams at the moment).

Who would you love to work with?
C – I would love to create sets with Tim Walker, roam the streets of NYC with The Sartorialist and plan a city plaza with William H. Whyte.
L – Jeff Wall (as his assistant, lacky, coffee-fetcher), Eve Ensler (again, anything required), Stephan Sagmeister, Christian Louboutin, my sister (on more than just the blog).

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
C – My beat up Chuck Taylors are my only pair of sneakers. I wore them all around Europe and dread the day they fall apart. They’re 6 years old, but I’ve been able to preserve them pretty well since I mostly wear heels – 3 to 4 inch heels are best for us short girls.
L – I don’t own any sneakers, but have about 9 pairs of boots, and the rest are heels of some sort. After 8 years in pointe shoes, Cath and I built up a reasonably impressive tolerance to foot pain. 

What’s on your iPod right now?
C – Empire of the Sun, MGMT, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip and A Charlie Brown Christmas.
L – (I don’t own an ipod, but my playlist would be the same as Cath’s. We have the exact same taste in music, but luckily not other things)

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
C – Roasted onion and pork sandwich from Sawicki’s, Brewhouse’s fish and chips, and shrimp and grits at Watershed.
L – Margaritas from Taqueria del Sol, cinnamon sugar doughnuts from Duck’s Cosmic Kitchen, anything from Southern Sweets, and cookies from The Cookie Studio.

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
C – Brickstore Pub.
L – Brickstore, The Grange and The Wren’s Nest

What are your Pet Peeves?
C – Squeaky doors. WD-40 is a godsend.
L – Loud mastication.

Shout outs?
C – Cheers to all of our fellow Atlanta bloggers!
L – All of our readers! You guys seriously make our day, everyday.
