Blog of the Day: Chocolate and Zucchini

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…

Finally, you can buy the future back (or some clever arrangement of “back” and “future”)

For sale: hoverboard from “Back to the Future”

Only $30,000! I smell a bargain!

You were right, Drew

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.

More Charlotte, VT Google Alerts

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.

Tomorrow I’ll be on this ferry!

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.

Five days and counting

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.

Why VT is awesome

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).

The prettiest library system in the world

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.

A definition of “goon” please

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.

I don’t get it

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

Sadly, I have plans tomorrow

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:

hey kids,

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

Another bad way to die

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…

me: yo
did you hear about this?
me: so scary
its been there for months!
Jack: WHAT
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?!?”
o man
this is not something to joke about
me: i bet its a drunk dude- homelessperson
cold in the winter and died
Jack: 😦
so sad
never let them find my body
if I go missing
i just
i don’t want to be found
me: you just want to decompose somewhere?
Jack: meh i guess
or like
and then baked into cakes
and then feed the cakes
to cats
who like cake
Nom nom nom
it are my birfday
and then
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

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?

Who needs Garfield?

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.

This is what I woke up to this morning

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.

Specifically, all posts relating to Winston, the cat. Watch him get a haircut!

Here is where you can find all other videos/posts Winston related.. this cat is awesome.  The blog is super cool in general too.. won me over with the “I’m not here to make friends” montage.

Also, I kind of think Nora and I should get a video camera so we can film our baby girl.. is that too much?

An open letter to my air conditioner:

Dear AC unit:

I am trying to save the earth, so as you know I’ve been putting you on the “energy saver” setting. I am so green friendly! However, you are a liar. You tell me it is 68 degrees in my bedroom and that’s why you are off “saving energy.” But it is not really 68 degrees. It’s fucking hot. I’m on to you. If this continues, I will have to go back to the “kill the earth and stay cool as a cucumber” setting. Just a heads up.

2. Emily – That video of the Aussie dude = something viral I saw before you. Praise me!

3. I also went to way too many Chucky Cheeze birthday parties. There was a cheese maze that was the perfect hideout for a pedophile. I’m amazed I got out of that place alive.
