I miss Livejournal, you guys.

Here is my husband Peter O'Dowd, with Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig, on Graham Norton, being terrorized by a housefly.

Just watch it.

This is just a quick post for grammardog, because it is her birthday. The post is going to actually just be 3 happy links because I want to post it before midnight (which is in 9 minutes), and the internet has been kind of a downer tonight, full of sick pets(mine included) and big feelings (ditto, natch), and that is hard.


1. Sesame Street's take on Downton Abbey: Upside Downton Abbey.

2. 25 Posters About Love. Awww!

3. Animals Being Dicks. Awww!

Happy Birthday G-Dog! You're great.


i.e., don't be a jerk

I just copied this from the NIH training "Protecting Human Research Participants", but I am pretty sure it could also be filed under "Good Life Practices".

Two general rules have been articulated as complementary expressions of beneficent actions:
1. Do no harm
2. Maximize possible benefits and minimize possible harms

Just so you know? whiskeysamurai always wins jokes.

me: My nerves are a bit shot from thinking about it. Seriously, Mike. From THINKING about it.
me: If this were Victorian England, I would be spoken about a lot in hushed tones, using the word "vapours".
Mike: I thought vapors was southern USA.
me: Youre thinking of moonshine and racism.
Mike: As usual.

Dear Landlord:

Thank you for choosing Finals week to start some really intense building work upstairs from my grad school apartment. It will probably totally help with my concentration as I finish these three papers and study for a final. I sure am glad that I rented from professors, because I really feel like you GET it. Some professors might hold off for, you know, ONE MORE WEEK and then do this building stuff when their student tenants were finished with the semester and you know, gone home for Christmas, leaving their apartment EMPTY--but you recognize how ludicrous that would be!

Also, remember that time I was eating cereal at the kitchen table and your handyman was dragging 2 by 4's around and leaping from exposed beam to exposed beam upstairs and knocked my kitchen light fixture down, shattering it into a squillion pieces all over the floor three feet from me? You still owe me a replacement light fixture. But you can totally wait till after this current hammering/dragging/leaping/building project is finished; I know you're busy.

Measure me in metered lines and one decisive stare
The time it takes to get from here to there

My ribs that show through t-shirts
And these shoes I got for free

I'm unconsoled, I'm lonely

I am so much better than I used to be

no really, are you hungry

Here is a video of me tormenting my dog this morning by asking him 534 times if he is hungry.:)



Today's class was cancelled, which means I have an whole unfettered day to finish up (read: start) my in-depth presentation for tomorrow's class!

Except for how it is 2:30 p.m. and I have not even OPENED A BOOK YET.
