I think this is one of Molly’s favorite food blogs. I remember her reading it freshman year of college when we lived together. It’s one of the better food blogs I have read, though I admit that I don’t cook much. Check it out…
Check out this post on edible wallpaper here.

I like Chromeo, I like this song, I like this video….
For sale: hoverboard from “Back to the Future”
Only $30,000! I smell a bargain!
Thanks to pal Drew for sending this my way. He said “My guess is she’ll think it’s ugly but it’s still cool furniture.”
Spot on, Drew. Actually, it’s not that it’s ugly, it’s that it’s messy. Why would I want a messy table? I wouldn’t.
It turns out that Vermont is a great place for a nose job. If you’re a big horn sheep, that is. “Bucky”, pictured below, fell and broke his nose a few years ago. Don Carpenter at Wildwood Taxidermy did a fantastic job fixing him up.
Happy (almost) vacation to me! I am going to try to go cold turkey on the internet for the week (.. I have a serious addiction).. so we might be lighter on the crap.. I am only interested in lobster, sun, and books for the next 8 days.
Today is the fifth day I have spilled coffee on me. Thankfully, today I was smart enough to wear a dark blue dress so you can’t really tell. But I basically smell like a dunkin’ + deodorant.
So I’m signed up for Google alerts about Charlotte, VT and I was alerted to this blog entry about a dude’s trip to Vermont. I really like his style of writing and what he chose to highlight, including this:
And Nora, they hiked the same mountain we hiked (which may or may not be the only time Nora has gone hiking).
we’re hot, bitchessss
I need more Office in my life. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica. I think Rainn Wilson is adorable. Is that weird?
Parents have actually named their kids the following: Number 16 Bus Shelter, Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii, Fish and Chips, Yeah Detroit, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit.
See if you can guess which names were and were not allowed by New Zealand name registration officials.

Above title was actually a subject line in my spam email folder. I doubt the veracity of that.. but look, this picture looks like she’s giving SPF cigs and that is also dangery.
My heart is exploding. I love this so much. Also, watch all of this too cause it’s fantastic. Really, all I want to do is watch NPH sing. All day long.
If that clip isn’t working, watch here..
So my homegirl Orla Kiely teamed up with Brita to make a pretty water bottle. Or something. I dunno, I didn’t read the whole press release but seriously, check out that water bottle!!!
From MoCo Loco:
Offline meta data! Valerie Madill proposes a new way of perusing library shelves by inserting the books into colour-coded sleeves that provide substantial at-a-glance bibliographical information about each book. Important information can be accessed without opening the book, or even pulling it right off the shelf. The user can locate the object of a search faster by honing in on the appropriate wrap colour. Examples shown are based on non-fiction books.
My mom has always called me a goon and it is a word that has made it into my vocabulary. Apparently, this word means different things to different people.. specifically definition #1 threw me off, but I guess I don’t know Flordia well.
..or it’s a cheap cask of wine.
To me it means cute & weird. What gives.
You know, with bright colors and abstract pixelation (sp?), you might think I’d be really into this art. You’d be wrong though. It’s boring.
I think this is supposed to be cute or something…maybe romantic? If so, it’s beyond me, although I do like the grey/black fading in the numbers and the hot pink. But yeah, the big design element with the “you” and “me” business is…meh…I dunno
But if I didn’t, I’d totes be there:
Are you a crazed Of Montreal fan? Do you live in or near New York City? Are you 21 or older? Well do I have some good news for you. Of Montreal guitarist and all-around swell fella the Late B.P. Helium posted this message on the E6 Townhall:
there will be a small listening party for Skeletal Lamping at a bar in Manhattan tomorrow night, July 23rd.
the bar is called HI-FI. it’s 21+
the address is 169 Avenue A.
He also added that the record will be played likely between 10pm and 12:30am. Oh, and there’s a $3 beer special. In Kentucky, $3 beer isn’t exactly special; but I guess that’s New York for you, beer costs three bucks, but you get to hear the new Of Montreal record early.
that’s from YANP
i have been singing this song in the shower since i was probably 10.
its also on the new girl talk album- on set it off about 1:25 into the track. yeah i cant stop playing that song on repeat either.
Stick figures by Em, additional male anatomy by Liz.
..so Meetza will be handling my calls.
Dan: asleep on the job!
Dan: i just called your phone, meetza has quite an attitude. i think you need a new assistant.
one that’s less queeny.
i was just on crap
its seems a bit depressing
Elizabeth: maybe put up some pictures of cute puppies
and just cause it’s soo good.. this is an evil seal:
JIC you forgot how crappy our president is.. read that from Jezebel.
I don’t know if anyone else saw this, but a body was found in a shed at McCarren pool yesterday. Since i’ve been to the pool about a gazillion times this summer, i was a little shocked and grossed out. (Read more here)
I told Jack about it and here were his thoughts…
did you hear about this?
me: so scary
its been there for months!
WHO COULD IT BE?!? who is missing from hipsterdom/whose body would send the best message to the hipster world that organized crime “ain’t gonna take anymore rattails’n'neon, ka-peeesh?!?”
this is not something to joke about
me: i bet its a drunk dude- homelessperson
cold in the winter and died
never let them find my body
if I go missing
i don’t want to be found
me: you just want to decompose somewhere?
Jack: meh i guess
and then baked into cakes
and then feed the cakes
who like cake
Nom nom nom
it are my birfday
give those cats haircuts
and then cut up my favorite clothes into tiny, cat-sized facsimile outfits of shit I would wear
and dress those cats up like tiny versions of me
and make a calendar
and then have a parade
maybe serve the leftover cake
to people this time
that’s all I want
I love Lin-Manuel, I just saw In the Heights last weekend and it was amaaazin. But jokes about balls are always good.
Two people died on an open top bus on their way to a Nationals game. How sucky is that?
I don’t know why Nancy is in there. hmmmm.
thanks Liz. my day is better now.
Ben Stein makes lots of economy/love comparisons in this NYT piece, which are a little interesting and totally nerdy… (and different than ‘something-d-o-o economics’). Like: ” The returns on your investment should at least equal the cost of the investment” and ” High-quality bonds consistently yield more return than junk, and so it is with high-quality love.” Kind of obvious, I guess..
However.. I took Econ 101 pass/fail at college.. and barely pulled through with the P. I guess I have isolated my problem, eh?
I have always kind of hated Garfield. He’s just so cranky. Maybe that adds to why I love Garfield minus Garfield so much.
Here’s the idea-
“Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness in a quiet American suburb.”
Amazing. I wish I could claim the credit for finding this site myself.
Nora and I have a very fun getting ready for work in the morning ritual. It usually involves some singing.. either an original song with music and lyrics by Nora (i.e. the classic hit, Emily Is My Roommate), or whatever song is stuck in our heads when we wake up. Today, Nora sang this tune while showering. Happy Tuesday.
Nora:IT’S FEIST SINGING 1234 ON SESAME STREET
