Friends + Internet = Betterment of the day

Stressful and harried and, if I'm being honest, kinda sad is how I'd describe this week so far. But with just half an hour left to go in what's been a particular downer of a work day, Sydney sent this glorious deposit to my LOLk*.

*LOLk = nomenclature invented by Videogum to refer to your investment portfolio of laffs.

New guilty pleasure

My big sister Goo has gotten me completely hooked on the catchiest song I've heard as of late.

These are my confessions. Grover, can you help me out with my feelings please?

Don't you just love a nice bath?

Sam and I only have a shower in our little apartment, and boy do I miss having a bathtub. It's so relaxing to treat yourself to a hot bath after a long day's work. This baby gorilla, Joe, agrees with me:

Unusual Town Names: Drab, PA

Pete just emailed me with a town for Unusual Town Names: Drab, PA. Unfortunately, as with several past towns, there's not much info about Drab. As far as I can tell, it seems to be a wide spot in the road in Blair County, PA. Here's what I could find:

Latitude: 40.37139 : Longitude: -78.23722 : Elevation: 1200 ft

Welcome to Drab ...
Please Note: At this time, we have very little information about Drab.

Seems like it lives up to its name!

It's Fashion Week!

Here is a photo of Nicki Minaj sitting next to Anna Wintour at a fashion show.

It pretty much speaks for itself.

It's football time again!

I'm deeply saddened that summer is over, because it means that my beloved DC public pools are closed until next year. One bright spot about fall, though, is the return of football season! And the very first game of the year, broadcast across the great US of A last night, featured my personal fave team the New Orleans Saints! Unfortunately, they lost despite valiant efforts, so I don't really want to talk about it. Instead, let's talk about this very fun post on Buzzfeed about NFL player anagrams. I like anagrams cause they are fun and silly! The post is full of gems, but I particularly enjoy this one for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi:


Here is a funny video
