Weekend Roundup II

“The day I made that statement, about the inventing the internet, I was tired because I’d been up all night inventing the Camcorder.”
– Al Gore

In linkstorm apology form.

Haven’t done one of these in a while, but I feel as if I’ve been neglecting you, possums, so here’s some of the latest from around the web – my corner and otherwise.  If you have any pretty, cool, or interesting things to share, post them in the comments and share with the other minions.

Janssen has an equally fabulous and talented sister, Merrick, who has a kinda rockin’ sense of style.  See here for the reason why I must now head to another state to find an  H&M in an effort to recreate her outfit.  Also, check out some of her recent commissioned art for a local haunt – it’s nouveau Art Nouveau, brilliant!

Speaking of fashion, watch this charming video and enjoy.

The news that I am a history nerd will surely shock no one here, right?  Check out an article on the Smithsonian’s website on attempts to save the Taj Mahal.

Decision fatigue…another term to add to my ever expanding vocabulary of ways to describe my (and some of my nearest and dearest’s) problems and neuroses.

Tom and Lorenzo are back to blogging about their original muse, Project Runway, as well as the ups and down (and crashing failures) of the fashion world.  I want desperately for them to be my gay best friends and help dress me on my more blah days.

Since we’re in a London mood these days, here’s a fun Facebook group that shows off the city and allows insiders to give you tips and hints of where to go.  There are also pictures of random things that group members find all over the city, like the Daleks!

In related news, J. and I bought the new series of Doctor Who and made through it like bandits in two days.  We’re now waiting less than patiently for the next part of the series to conclude – and avoiding any friends, forums, or internet types that will tell us what’s happening against our will.  As River Song says, “Spoilers!”  (Someday I WILL have BBC America and this idiotic year long lagtime will be no more!)

Drat.  It’s true.  I’ve been working out steadily for a couple of weeks now.  I ache constantly and in some strange places – especially when I let J. tell me what sort of exercises to do and wake up the next morning unable to walk – but I’m determined to stick with it.

And because I’m a habitual self destructive-ist, I’ve got a hankering for this recipe with summer peaches and nectarines.  Which wouldn’t be so bad except that I’m sure I’m capable of downing one all by myself in one go.

One of the truly loveliest of my lovely friends, Marie, dropped by with her husband unexpectedly yesterday and we managed to squeeze in a visit that probably cut into the time they should have been spending at a wedding reception, but I was too selfish to let her off easily!  The flying visit had only one cloud over it, that she informed me that They (whoever They are) are remaking one of my most favorite campy films, Clue!  This is unacceptable.  No one could possibly recreate the hilarious Madeline Kahn moment, “Flames…on the side of my face…”

We’re not the only ones relocating to Europe, Margot’s sister Pinto and her husband are heading to Germany.  Also there will be future exciting news on Margot herself, stay tuned.

  1. Oh yuck. The mystery ache. When I recently got back into the working-out of things, I woke up with one sore armpit and a buttcheek that hurt like sin. I had only gone for a walk, so none of it made sense!
