Friday Links

“I was a little excited but mostly blorft. “Blorft” is an adjective I just made up that means ‘Completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.’ I have been blorft every day for the past seven years.”
― Tina Fey, Bossypants

I’m getting sick. I only get sick when I honestly can’t afford to – and I can’t. I’ve got assignments coming out of my ears and the first leg of a move coming up in five days. Immigration to-do lists are driving me mad. The basement that is our current headquarters is an absolute disaster, which twists me into knots of guilt but every time I try to tackle it, I just seem to make the mess bigger. We’re trying to copy and store everything we own electronically, which is an easy but highly time consuming task.

I have all kinds of blog posts I want to do – serious ones, goofy ones, tales of our adventures of upgrading our tech products after half a decade (at least!) of avoiding doing so, plans for a new camera, you name it. Alas, they all have to wait. In the meantime here are your links – gotta dash!


It’s nice to see a tasteful kind of luxury, with the just the bare necessities…(that is a sarcastic ellipsis).

Equal parts touching and sad.

Hot dog, all one needs is a cardboard box?! That’ll kill some major industries. Kidding, kidding. This is actually quite an interesting program.

Need to hard-core up your tea? I’ve got just the thing.

The last performance is literally days before I arrive in the country. The theatre gods are cruel. (Also I’m hoping for Kerry from Planes, Trains, and Plantagenets – which you should all be reading – to pick up the slack here, because I must experience this even vicariously).

I want to go to there. All the theres. Grab your passports, minions.

Clothes, their prices, their worth, and their impact have been a bit of a pet topic around here lately. Let’s add fuel to the fire with a glimpse of the price difference between the Vogues of 1913 and 2013. Hint: woof!

Destiny is biology? There’s a twist!

It’s something of a mantra around here to take pleasure in small things.

  1. Good luck with the first leg of the move!!! You can do it!! (p.s. I usually read your blog in Feedly, so it doesn’t show me your blog design & just noticed you re-vamped it. Love it!)
