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 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
