Friday Wrapup!

We got the keys to our new apartment, we've packed our bags for our Michigan trip, and the Mets won last night. Either it's the dawn of the apocalypse's Friday! Let's get to it.

Please tell me you guys saw the season premiere of "Catfish." Please please please.

But ok, for the record, I've never claimed to have good taste in television. I think that's a given. But I was just telling a friend of mine yesterday that people always look at CB sympathetically when I start to talk about this stuff, and to that I have just one thing to say: even CB was like "Wait, what? We have to see how this ends."

I rest my case.

Also, thank GOD I'm not single, because I'd for real get Catfished and then my friends would have to have an intervention with me to explain that I wasn't actually talking to Ryan Gosling and, instead, it was a 67 year old housewife from Montana. It'd be heartbreaking and sad and would embarrass all of my friends and family on national television while Nev and Max filmed it.

Perhaps I need a life.

This is awesome. And true. IT'S NOT ABOUT THE NAIL!


I want to marry this beer


The book of the week this week I chose because (a) I keep reminding myself I have to read it (like about 32 other books on my list) and (b) the picture reminded me of summer. 

Hey, I'm just being honest. 

The bonus is that it sounds like a great read! So check it out, along with our other selections through the years by clicking here.


And now, the Video of the Week. 

So for Father's Day I made my dad a CD. I was all excited and picked out songs I thought he'd like, or at least hadn't heard before, perhaps opening him up to some new sounds and bands. 

And then this conversation happened:

Dad: "Dear, I appreciate the cd but....I'm going to have to agree with CB. The music is kind of depressing."
Me: "What?! No way!"
Dad: "The National song? As I listened to it I worried if you were ok."
Me: "What? No! I'm very happy! I thought I chose happy music."
Dad: "Ok......"

But whatever, it'll just join the rankings of other classic gifts I've given my dad over the years, not the least of which was a Father's Day mug I made in middle school that leaked and had a terrifying monster face on it. My bad. 

So, just for you dad, here's YOUR video of the week. Enjoy! 

BLOGGING NOTE: I'll be on vacation next week, so I'll be posting some archives while I'm away. But stay tuned when I'm back on Monday, July 8th, where I'll have a LOT of vacation AND moving stories! Oh boy! 


  1. That peanut-butter porter is AMAZING! The distributor was sampling the beers from DuClaw at our local liquor store last weekend and I tried it. Not a beer that I'd just sit and drink (it is pretty sweet), but it would be REALLY tasty poured over a scoop of ice cream for a sassy dessert :)

    1. Yeah, I would imagine that beer wouldn't be long for the world in my refrigerator...mmm....and I like the idea of a sassy dessert!

  2. We went to the DuClaw brewery once. Need to go back. I need that beer.

  3. Omg I love Catfish!!!

    Once I made a CD for my dad thinking he'd love it, but didn't listen to all the lyrics very well because one of the songs was about lying in a pile of cocaine. Oops.
