“Sometimes I worry about you. Because you spend a lot of time alone, you know?” – my husband

“I’m kinda hungry.”


“Huh, yeah. I could go for some cherries.”

(Several minutes and a pound of cherries later …)

“Ugh. I don’t feel well.”


“I honestly don’t think that would be a good idea.”


“But I already feel kinda sick–”


(Eats another half pound of cherries. Severe gastrointestinal discomfort ensues.)

“Oh, god. I think … I think I’m legitimately ill. I think it was the cher-”


“You’re kidding, right? We do this every year.”


“Yes we do. We eat, like, three pounds of cherries in one sitting, and then we wonder why -”



“I feel fine.”

“No, you don’t.”

“Do too.”

“I think I should call Rand and tell him we’re sick.”

“Tell him to buy more cherries.”


Look, you guys, sometimes you just need to eat cherries until you run the risk of pooping in the middle of gym class.

    I always feel this way about cherries. I never learn. It is a delicious, delicious sickness.

    You seem to have an abundance of googly eyes. I think you should send me some so I can see how my husband feels about eyebombing. 🙂

    You know, President Zachary Taylor supposedly died in 1850 from eating cherries. Modern scientists think his death was actually due to cholera, but I say it was the cherries!

  • Isn’t this what Pocahontas did?

  • I have the increasingly overpowering urge to acquire googly eyes and use them throughout my home and office with reckless abandon. It’s hard to pinpoint where this urge is coming from…

      Hard to know where urges come from. But you should probably give in.

    I too succumb to the mysterious allure of the almighty cherry… they are the aliens we’ve been warned about, I think.

  • This. Is. Awesome. And hilarious, and that cherry is both adorable and terrifying. Googly eyes will do that to a thing.

  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
