My roommate Liz and I were just discussing my complicated issues with red velvet cake. And then Facebook revealed this to her. If you want me to come to your wedding, I’m going to have to ask that you don’t have one of these:
This site has it all and in a really cool format. I always thougth that in french dogs went “wau wau,” but it’s actually “woof woof.” And Russian dogs go “guff guff.”
I couldn’t find the actual clip, but this gives you a taste.
Has everyone seen this already? I think it’s the funniest thing ever.

I just went to a Carvel ice cream stand for the first time and I can’t believe this cake exists and is marketed towards children.
Running from 1981 to 1987, the Canadian show Today’s Special followed the adventures of Jeff, a mannequin who came to life every night after closing with the aid of a magic cap; his display-designer friend Jodie; and puppet buddies Sam Crenshaw (the store security guard) and Muffy (a mouse who speaks only in rhyme). Each episode taught a lesson: about hats, friendship, and even alcoholism. But for impressionable young ones, the real education came from learning the strict rules that kept Jeff breathing. Losing the hat paralyzes him, and one step outside the store makes him a mannequin for good.
My mom told my sister about this show and Alison was pretty sure it was made up. But it’s real. It’s about a chimp that’s a secret agent.
“The suit details problems with the plant dating as far back as 2004, describing a sewer facility permeated by the smell of doughnuts, pipes clogged with corrosive slime and the resulting raw sewage leaks that eventually shut down the southern Fairfax sewer system.
At one point, public works officials ran a closed-circuit camera along a pipe to show the grease deposits, only to get the camera stuck in the buildup.”
I found this funny.
Ok, I realized this was a double post when “turn around bright eyes” was already a tag. But I wanted to leave it to show how Emily is in my brain. I blame being out of the country for being two weeks behind on my youtube.
My friend Ryan’s doggie niece has been nominated as the dog of the day on Purina.com. Vote for her. She’s a rescue dog and afraid of bicycles.
I agree with most of them, including

Thanks b for sending me these.
(sorry steph- i’m adding more to your post…)
The photos are from a NYT slideshow of the Grey Gardens mansion…
A 1975 documentary captured the eccentric lives of Edith Bouvier Beale, known as Big Edie, and her daughter, Little Edie, in Grey Gardens, the filthy, dilapidated mansion they occupied in East Hampton.
Two years after Big Edie died in 1977, Little Edie sold the house to Sally Quinn and Benjamin C. Bradlee, who undertook a massive renovation. These photographs, which have never been seen by the public before, were taken by a photographer hired by Ms. Quinn at the time she and her husband purchased the house, in order to capture the extent of the decay.
Correction: April 20, 2009
A previous version of this slideshow reported that Edith Bouvier Beale died in 1979. She died in 1977 and the house was sold in 1979.
I can’t wait to see Grey Gardens with Drew Barrymore on HBO. Steph, I should come visit you in DC and have a watching party.
My sister sent me this amusing article about SkyMall. The NY Times loves reporting on how every tiny niche of society is suffering from the recession. Also, remember how Sarah had a SkyMall ad on her door of A1 for some dog bark collar?
The second one is really creepy.
Thanks Ryan for sending me this.
I think this is better than Fuck Yeah Ryan Gosling.
He loves children and the earth.
In my unnamed office building, 30 out of the 120 bathrooms contain something called “female urinals.” They look like this. I have no idea how to use them. Luckily a high-level governmental official has been made aware of the problem.
