Whoo hoo! It’s Friday, the sun is shining in my part of the world, the day is beautiful, and I have to go enjoy it. You should, too, if you get the chance. These links will be waiting for you when you get back. Really. I promise.

A Quora thread about the most awesome pie charts, ever.

Apparently you can clean a dirty pair of jeans by popping them in the freezer for a week. Although I’m not sure it so much cleans them as makes them very, very cold.

Dude, you have got check out the staying power of the word “dude.”

A fantastic “Where Are They Now?” slideshow of the cast of Willy Wonka.

Today, my husband woke up early, and as I popped out of bed after him, he instructed me not wake up. “You’re supposed to snooze in the daylight,” he said. And I laughed, because I knew I’d get no more sleep. Not with “Daylight” by Matt and Kim playing in my head.

In our modern world, what should little girls be made of? Is it still sugar and spice and everything nice?

—————

Holy cats. The mayor of Paris is cracking down on the city’s noisy nightlife by – I kid you not – deploying packs of mimes. MIMES. It’s magical.

  • 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.
  • Does it still count as photobombing when you love it?
  • 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
