The Week: May 31, 2013

It’s supposedly going to be sunny this weekend in Seattle (I am cautiously optimistic). I might need to take my French books outside to study. Because next week? We’re leaving for Paris.

Or maybe I’ll just prepare for that trip by preemptively eating croissants. You enjoy these links.

David Sedaris, on the joys of having a guest bedroom and the problems that arise when your visitors know too much.

In case you need a bit of perspective, “Here is today” gives a great visual of how the last 24 hours fit into the history of the time.

—————

An entire Tumblr site dedicated to pizza. Pretty sure society just reached its zenith, guys.

—————

How I feel every time he can’t sleep.

—————

Every country is the best at something, right? But … seriously, America?

—————

Damn it. Bakerella’s recipe for crunchy peach cobbler cake thingy (new title courtesy of me) is way, waaaay too easy to make.

—————

NYT columnist Frank Bruni’s beautiful take on the importance of siblings.

—————

Let’s face it: the punctuation marks we have today are not cutting it – we need some new ones. And for a girl who’s as sarcastic as I am, the sinceroid would be really handy.

—————

Not only is he is the greatest captain the Enterprise will have, ever, he also speaks out against domestic violence. I thought I couldn’t love Patrick Stewart any more than I already do. Then I read this.

—————

JC Penney’s Hitler tea kettle is causing a media storm (why … how … MY BRAIN CANNOT DEAL WITH THIS), leading Rand and I to the same conversation we always have when the fuhrer comes up: was the Hitler mustache ever fashionable?

  • 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. 🥧🍴
  • "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
