The Week: Jan. 27, 2011

Posted on

The sun is chasing away a few wisps of lingering fog this morning. There is frost on the rooftops that I can see from my office. Downstairs, my husband is still in bed, still recouping from yesterday’s 4:20 am wake-up time, and having to travel to San Francisco and back in a matter of 12 hours.

It is ridiculously quiet. I’m going to go have breakfast and see if my city – and my beloved – wake up in the next half hour. I’m guessing they won’t. While I do that, you enjoy these links:

My friend Kurtis just started a blog. It’s called Kourteous. It’s absolutely insane … and therein may lie the brilliance.

—————

Ohio artist Amy Casey’s city scapes are delightfully odd. They’re what you’d expect if 9-year-olds were allowed to be civil engineers and gravity was no obstacle – which, for the record, would be AWESOME.

—————

An endless loop of drunk Ron Swanson dancing. It’s … endless (warning: clicking on the link automatically plays audio, which may not jive in your work environment).

—————

The Cosby Sweater project is an entire website full of art inspired by the sartorial genius of the Huxtable clan. Bonus: Sooooo many references to the time Denise got a D.

—————

“Bring me something to drink or I kill the dog,” and other useful French expressions that you won’t learn in class.

—————

A remarkably pointed and thoughtful analysis of the “Stuff People Say” Meme (according to the author, it allows us to air our cultural grievances, while opening up the field for debate and discussion).

—————

One year in 40 seconds. As my grandmother always said, gli anni passano per tutti.

—————

This post about fudge brownies has me thinking the blogatrix behind it might be my soul mate. Except for that nonsense about how all brownies require frosting. That’s just bonkers.

—————

This may be a little late for MLK day, but it’s still amazing: a mural of Martin Luther King, made from Rubix cubes.

I’ll take The Coolest Thing I’ve Seen on The Internet All Week for $1000, Alex. Answer: This fan-created archive of Jeopardy! questions.

  • Some hardcore stuff happening in the studio today. #muglife #ceramics
  • Determined to pressure wash my deck on my own.  First, I couldn't get the machine started (they gave me incorrect instructions, I later learned). Then a tube broke, sending water everywhere. I got soaked. They brought over a replacement machine and I FINALLY GOT TO PRESSURE WASH.  For five minutes. Before it ran out of gas (they forgot to fill it). So tomorrow they'll be bringing me some gas. But if you are wondering why I don't just "do it myself", THIS IS WHY. 😅😂😭 #DIYFAIL #newhomeowner
  • Yesterday I picked up my James Beard Award from some of the most wonderful humans, wore it all around Manhattan while grinning like an asshole, and made my friends try it on at dinner.
  • He just walked from Hell's Kitchen to Chelsea with this cookie in tow for me. Who was I in a past life? Because I must have been a saint. #schmackarys
  • A friend gifted us this dish towel for obvious reasons. 😊
  • DnD night with @pippinwaffles.
  • MRI time. I should have clarified: this isn't for my brain tumor, but to make sure I don't have some structural problems in my hip. I'm fine. My brain is fine! 😊
  • He said he was proud of me and I said I was proud of the life we built together, if you are wondering what kind of mood I'm in today.
  • When you find out you've won a James Beard Award while walking down the street.
