The Week: October 19, 2012

I am nearly over my cold, but still pouting at the fact that I missed out on meeting my new little nephew, and enjoying some nice California sunshine. So while I warm myself with a cup of tea and plan my next trip down the coast, you enjoy these links.

(I won’t need shorts in California in November, will I? I hate shorts.)

I am ridiculously honored to be featured on Nylon Lifestyle this week. The format of the interview was incredibly fun, and I got to talk about Tina Fey, frosting, and Rand.

—————

Ick. My pal Philip actually found cupcakes that I won’t eat: they’re STD-inspired.

—————

Really intrigued by the controversial and dark work of Will Coles. Totally fascinating.

—————

Pretty sure this is the first horseman of the apocalypse: sexy Sesame Street character costumes. If you need me, I’ll be hiding under my bed, weeping.

—————

From pocket-sized wookies to mustachioed monsters, I want pretty much everything in this Etsy store.

—————

This SNL clip featuring undecided voters is worth a giggle or two.

—————

This is so darn cool: a third-grader in Omaha dresses up as a different historical figure (or as someone just as important in her life) every single day.

—————

Bodyform, a UK company that sells women’s hygiene products (translation: maxi pads), hilariously responds to a man who voices his displeasure at learning that periods are not all fun and horseback-riding.

—————

How Yelp is planning on using public shaming to stop fraudulent reviews. FAKE REVIEWS ON YELP?! PUT THEM IN THE STOCKS.

—————

As someone who’s a big believer in social mobility, this article about how family status will impact your descendants for generations is a little jarring. (The good news: the studies focus on Europe. Presumably the U.S. us a little more upwardly mobile).

—————

A fascinating question: if all the U.S. presidents were alive and running for office today, who would win?

—————

I want to give a special shout-out to my friend Deanna. This week, her youngest went through surgery (don’t worry – everyone came through with flying colors). Deanna has yet to write about the experience, but her treatise on ginormous tables is enjoyable reading in the meantime.

—————

Phew. That’s it for me this week. I should be entirely mended and ready to write on Monday. Talk to you then.

  • Okay, I'll admit: I really like how these came out. I need to get more adventurous with glazes, but I'm so digging this shape.
  • A sneak peek at the photoshoot that @hayleyyoungshotme did this morning at @majesticbaytheatres. We're going to be featured in an issue of Seattle Magazine early next year - about Seattle couples. Super excited. Details and more of shots of amazing hair as we get closer to the publication date.
  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
  • Fried anchovies: accomplished.
