Junk Drawer Friday!

Cher and Val Kilmer

Friday.  Finally.  Time to shed our work clothes for fleece-wear with elastic waistbands.  God, I love the weekend.

You planning to watch the Oscars?  Any predictions?

Here’s some fun link love from around the world for you to read during all those acceptance speeches: AFTER THE JUMP – THE WORLD’S WEIRDEST RESTAURANTS, VINTAGE OSCAR PHOTOS, A COMEDIAN WHO IS LIVE-TWEETING HER FATHER’S LAST DAYS, AND BEN & JERRY’S MOST INCREDIBLE ICE CREAM INVENTION YET!

Photobooth Dogs

Photobooth dogs

I don’t know what’s happening to me.  Ever since I got a cat, I’ve gotten all squishy inside over animals.  Even dogs.  (I’ve been afraid of dogs for a good 30 years after one ill-fated incident where I tried to ride a friend’s Great Dane like a horse.)

This photobooth series of dogs by photographer Lynn Terry is so damn cute.  This week’s most happy-making photos …after the jump!

Cookie Monster

Cookie

Does anyone know who this guy is and if he will marry me?  I want to spend the rest of my life eating cookies off my own face with him.  (There, I just wrote my wedding vows.)

Hot Sauce Science

Hot Hot Hot

I like hot stuff – men, sauces, and dogs.  Turns out one of those things is actually good for you.

According to hot sauce science, a little sriracha (does anyone know how to pronounce that?!) on your lunch can mean a big mood boost for your afternoon.

Just as I always suspected: Hot Sauce = Happiness.

The Sound of Happiness

Retro Cassette Tapes

Do you have a favorite sound?  Something that just makes you happy?  Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved the sound of men’s dress shoes clacking on a gritty sidewalk.  And the sound of turning thin dictionary pages.

Today, I add to that list, the sound of 16 baby goat hooves on a living room floor.  Check out this video from farmer Nadia Jarreau – I guarantee you will watch it at least 300 times.  (My favorite is the speedy goat who races across the screen at the 5-second mark.)

…the video and my top ten happiest sounds – after the jump!

My Sweet Tooth

Life is Short Eat Dessert First

I’m working from home this afternoon, so that I can keep a watchful eye on Momma le Chat.  She hasn’t been feeling very well the last couple days, so I’m letting her sack out on my bed and hog the covers.

The trouble with working from home is that I can just shovel food in my face all day.  At work, I pretend to only eat 3 meals a day.  At home, I want to build a funnel from the refrigerator to my mouth.  I have no integrity in the privacy of my own home.  I can polish off an entire Entenmann’s (literally anything they make) during a commercial break.

Hope

Microphone Pop Art

I know poetry readings can be super uncomfortable.  Like being forced to sit through the public reading of a stranger’s very private diary.  From when they were 12.  And discovered masturbation.

But when done well, it can make you want to whoop from your seat like a Pentacostal in a tent revival.  This is one of those done-wells – about hope, mackin’ like Jay-Z, and being a crush-monster for love.

Happy Monday morning, everyone!

Junk Drawer Friday!

Photo Booth

Happy Friday!  Lots of work to do this weekend (getting ready to shoot a new show for Animal Planet in a week).  I’m so tired I’m cross-eyed, and I haven’t done laundry in 3 months, but it’ll be worth it because you’ll all watch it when it airs, right?????  (Will bribe for ratings.)

Hope you all have a super weekend!  If you’re feeling tired and cross-eyed, too, here’s a little fun link love to juice things up: After the jump – What’s your inner potato. The most ridiculous products ever made for boobs. And one woman’s hilarious journey through 2,330 pages of self-help books.
