“Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.”
– Bill Watterson
It’s Friday afternoon and I’m ready for the weekend! I had a bad time of it yesterday because short work weeks always throw me off and I spent all of Wednesday evening convinced it was Thursday night and saying to myself, “One more day, C., one more day.” Reality reasserted itself around 9pm and poisoned all of Thursday for me. But it’s alright! This weekend I’m going on a small adventure and Sunday evening we get to pull up a seat, drink a cup of tea, and ferociously judge pretty dresses together – one of my favorite activities with you, well-beloved minions.
So, until then, let’s see what’s been going on around the world and cherry pick a few things for you, eh?
Russian scientists have apparently taken an Ice Age seed and brought it fully to flower! Next up, reviving that mammoth they found in the tundra a couple years ago. Wasn’t there a bad 80’s movie along these lines except with Neanderthals? Science!
Apparently facial recognition technology has taken the inevitable leap – advertising (coupled with social activism). Wasn’t there a bad Nought’s movie along these lines except with clones? More science!
6 Reasons to Carry a Handkerchief, from The Art of Manliness. I should really buy J. some at some point, I remember stealing my dad’s all the time as a girl.
Hands down the fanciest thing I make for semi-regular consumption. Between this and my gourmet mac-and-cheese recipe, I can fool people into thinking I’m some sort of culinary genius.
And that, as they say, is all, folks. Again, you are all required to report for Snarky Fashion Commentary Duties, this Sunday night. Wear your comfiest pajamas and we’ll see you there!
