This weeks brings lots of BLAH BLAH BLAH HOLY CRAP HEALTH CARE PASSED.

And if this is your first time realizing that I’m bleeding-heart commie liberal, well … then the obvious tends to elude you, and I’m not exactly sure how to help.

In other news that makes me smile …

Here’s a video of Bill Murray bartending at SXSW. He pours everyone tequila, regardless of their order (endure the hippie kid recounting the story until you see Bill). Mother pus-bucket, I love that man.

What’s that you say? You want ANOTHER awesome video to watch while you pretend to be working? Check out the video of this young lady, balancing books on her head while solving a Rubix cube and reciting pi to the 100th decimal, and pray she doesn’t apply for the job you currently aren’t doing.

And while I’ve seen London, I can’t say the same for Paris (nor for the Queen in her underpants). Thankfully, this video provides a beautiful panorama (of Paris. Not the queen).

Oh, and did you realize that Magnolia Bakery opened up a shop on W. 49th? Just four short blocks away from the Hilton at which we are now staying. I certainly didn’t realize it when I dragged an amazing and wonderful (and pregnant) friend of mine TO THE EFFING WEST VILLAGE TO GET A CUPCAKE. And did I mention we got lost? Like, twice.

I kept apologizing profusely.

“Why?” she asked. “I got to see the city. And I got cupcakes.”

Well, damn. That logic is hard to argue with. But I still feel incredibly guilty. If you’re reading this, dear friend who I’ve chosen not to mention by name because I don’t know if everyone knows you are preggers, know that I feel awful, and love you madly.

And I will buy you and your baby-to-be as many cupcakes as you both desire.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned to the blog, because I’ve got stories about congressional medal of honor recipients, secret underground restaurants, and naked ladies.

    Goodness. I’m impressed by your friend! When I was in the early days of pregnancy, I was a puke machine. Everything made me nauseated, and there was no way I could eat cupcakes. This didn’t stop me from going to London and seeing The Scissor Sisters at the O2, but it did result in a migraine and Exorcist-like puking at a bus stop after the show.

    I’m sure all of your friends know by now that going anywhere with dear directionally-challenged you means taking the absolute longest possible route. And that makes it officially an “adventure”. That’s not a bad thing, especially not when it results in cupcakes. Adventures and cupcakes – it just does NOT get much better.

      Christine – That. Sounds. Awesome.

      And Trisha – You’re so right. She knew what she was walking into.
