This round-up is a day late. My apologies for that. It’s also got quite a few links of a sexual nature. No apologies there because, hey, it’s the weekend.

Enjoy.

A map illustrating the most popular baseball teams by county. (Apparently nobody cares about Canada.)

—————

“‘Wow-sabi?’ Is that like Wasabi, but with added essence of douchebag?” A scathing review of the menu of Guy Fieri’s new Vegas restaurant.

—————

Prince Harry racing Usain Bolt.

—————

This wasn’t really a surprising revelation, but it’s still a fascinating read: “The Way We Board Planes Makes Absolutely No Sense.”

—————

The Telegraph compiles the top hardest countries to get a visa.

—————

A lovely little essay on the city-dweller’s struggle for privacy.

Sex Advice from an Uncomfortable Guy Who’s Afraid of Sex.

Denmark has taken a creative approach to combat its low birthrate – encouraging people to get it on while on vacation (video is mostly SFW).

Steven Coogan explains why he hates the song “Lady in Red” so darn much. The upside: it’s a funny interview. The downside: guess what song I now have stuck in my head.

Stars of the adult movie industry talk about what it was like to “come out” as a porn worker.

  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴
  • "I hit the jackpot." That's how I once heard Michael J. Fox describe his marriage years ago, and it stayed with me. I've never found a better way of describing our relationship than that. Bells ring. Lights flash. Coins spill everywhere. Now, where's my complimentary breakfast?
  • Someone sent Rand socks with his face all over them, and he's really bothered by this but I'm gonna rock the hell out of them.
  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.

All Over The Place

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
