The Week: March 21, 2014

It’s Friday! I have a crapload of things to do, and thanks to the success of yesterday’s post, I now have an inbox full of requests to guest blog (I CAN’T TELL WHO IS JOKING AND WHO ISN’T ANYMORE). While I try to tackle the insurmountable task that is my email, you enjoy these links.

—————

My friend Pam wrote a compelling, compassionate peace about when, as travelers, we should speak up, and when we should be quiet.

—————

It’s National Puppy Day! Time to consider adopting a shelter dog (be they puppies, or simply puppies at heart). Or, if unexpectedly bringing home a dog would cause your husband to lose his shit because “OMG WE ARE NEVER HOME AND WHO IS GOING TO WATCH IT AND YOU DON’T EVEN REALLY LIKE DOGS”, then why not make a donation to your local animal shelter?

—————

And here’s a little something for all you cat people out there. (via my buddy Geoff).

—————

A collection of brilliant, never-used headlines. My favorite? This one.

—————

How to wear out your toddler during a five-hour airport layover.

—————

Journalism nerds, weep. The AP is now accepting “over” as a synonym to “more than.” Why don’t we just BURN THE ENTIRE STYLEBOOK WHILE WE’RE AT IT?

—————

My buddy Zac has so many magical things hiding in the recesses of his blog.

—————

Photographer Jena Cumbo’s “We Met on the Internet” project features couples who – you guessed it – met online. A beautiful reminder that love is out there – sometimes you just need to search for it.

—————

What it’s like to bake like Wes Anderson.

—————

Some more Anderson love for your Friday: Check out the “Centered” compilation, which showcases the director’s attention to detail and composition.

—————

That’s it for me this week! See you all on Monday!

  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*
❤️❤️❤️
  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • 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. 🥧🍴

All Over The Place

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

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
