The Week: May 25, 2012

I seem to have left my brain somewhere. Not only was I unaware of the month and date, but I also started typing “2005” into the title of this post.

Yeah. Yeah. I know. I should probably go have a cupcake and retrace my steps. I mean, really, there’s only so many places that a brain could be, right? While I go do that, you enjoy these links, courtesy of people who are far more with it than I am:

My friend Mimi took her daughter to Tokyo Disney Sea (yes, this is a real Disney park, and no, I’d never heard of it), where they learned of the existence of a character called Shellie May. It doesn’t make a lot more sense if you read it, but Mimi’s take on the whole thing is pretty darn delightful.

—————

Words cannot express how amazing this is: Jeff Goldblum gets interviewed INSIDE OF A CLOSET  (sent to me by the lovely @gret_herself, to whom I am forever indebted.)

—————

This made me giggle so much. For all my friends out there who are parents (and to those who aren’t), Jezebel has a great take on why you’re so not almost ready for a baby, even if you think you are. 

—————

Whatever your political affiliations, the story behind why a little boy was patting the president’s head is downright touching.

—————

I’m not a fan of actual violence. But theoretical, fictional violence at the inanimate things that annoy us? I’m SO DOWN WITH THAT. Which is why I find the “Things I Want to Punch In the Face” blog so darn enjoyable.

—————

Inspired by Memorial Day, my friend Angela decided to use her blog to memorialize her own loved ones. You can participate in the project, too. It’s easy, and it’s a great way to honor the people who helped make you you.

—————

I can’t for the life of me remember if I’ve linked to the Photoshop Troll blog before. Either way, you should visit, because it’s HILARIOUS.

—————

Ewww. Pretty sure this sandwich is going to kill someone.

—————

This is so creepy, but I can’t look away. Io9 has a collection of portraits of ventriloquists and their dummies that will HAUNT YOUR DREAMS.

—————

Rand and I have always wondered about this, and Slate delivers: How those cranes get on the top of buildings in the first place.

OMG I FOUND IT, you guys! I found my brain in the fridge! AWESOME. Oh, wait. It’s just a hunk of cauliflower. Damn it. The search continues …

  • 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
  • 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! 😊
