Here are some things I liked on the internet recently. My blogging time has been lost to Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood. I’m on the A List. Here is proof: So to make up for my tardiness of late, I’m bringing you a second post today. I know you’ve been hankering. Right? Right?!?! 1. Catholics Meet the… Continue reading la-la-la-link loving
A few Saturdays ago, we went to the beach with some lovely friends who have a car. I meant to post this a few days ago, but we had company this weekend, and I was happily busy bopping around DC with them. It had been about three years since I had last been in the… Continue reading back to the beach
Let me clarify: I am coming up hot on 25 years old. I have no children. I basically have started eating baby food for breakfast. I’ve been trying to really crack down on my eating habits since my metabolism has never agreed with me eating bagels and cream cheese or muffins or anything of the… Continue reading adult baby food breakfast
How about seven instant view recommendations? We’ve got your Amazon Instant, your Netflix, and your Hulu all repped — this is an equal opportunity video situation. And I’m pretty sure all of them have free trials of some kind available. 1. 20 Feet From Stardom (available on Netflix) Funny, moving, and great, great music. I love… Continue reading 7 quick instant streams
(This photo has nothing to do with this post, I just thought this tiled wall was pretty at dinner the other night.) 1. Summer Polar Vortex You remember the polar vortex this winter? I was not into it then, but when the summer polar vortex drops the weather from the mid-nineties to the low-eighties, I… Continue reading five favorites: the summer polar vortex and “little lamps”
I’ve been a bookworm since day 1. Proof: So what has been on my Kindle or in my bag this summer? I started with Kristin Lavransdatter, which was a thousand stunning pages of Norway, family, religion, war, and drama. What else can you ask for out of literature? The scale of the book is enormous,… Continue reading very hungry caterpillar
This week I got to hang out with some cool people. Beyoncé. Jay Z. Actually no, as you can tell, neither of them is any more aware of my existence than they were before this week. Irrelevant. It was still basically the best concert I’ve been to. But I did meet this fellow — Cardinal… Continue reading one of the cool kids
So after all my biznatching over United on Thursday, my favorite brother eventually did touch down in DC on the morning of the 4th. We had an absolutely delightful 4th of July weekend tooling around the city and laying low in the apartment. Literally laying: I kind of wanted to leave this air mattress set… Continue reading the new city of brotherly love
Happy Fourth of July! I have been looking forward to celebrating the weekend with my brother for what seems like ages and was looking forward to his arrival yesterday in the early evening. Fast forward, and he has just departed Cleveland to arrive at 10am today… a city that was not in his travel itinerary.… Continue reading rage against the airlines
So calming to lay under the planes as they land out by National airport.
