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?

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.

Valentine Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovers!  This morning, the Chinese woman who runs the bagel shop by my office menacingly laughed in my face when I wished her a Happy Valentine’s Day.  I thought that was unfair considering she’s the steadiest relationship I have.

Any special plans this weekend?  Something tres romantique?  Romantic for me is chewing on a really soft sweatshirt sleeve while I binge-watch old tv series.  That’s what’ll be happening Chez Tanya.

If you’re going to be chewing on your own sweatshirt, here’s a little link love to sweeten the mood: Fart figure skating, why Clair Huxtable is the greatest woman that ever lived, 6 people who fell in love on the subway, and Starbucks’ questionable contribution to the music industry!

Nice People DancingHappy Friday!  I’m heading straight into the frozen tundra today to visit my sister’s family in Chicago.  I will be wearing 2 pairs of pants, 3 sweaters, and a ski mask.  This should – in no way – alarm airport security.

I hope you’ve got something fun planned!  Since Mayor Bill de Blasio dropped Staten Island Chuck (our weather-predicting groundhog), we’re in for a lot more winter.

Here’s a little light reading to keep you company! Fun Olympic facts, Anna Wintour’s faces, maps of the most popular running routes in the world, and how to dress your home like a Wes Anderson movie!

Donuts

I went to bed before 10pm last night and woke up looking a little less like Lurch this morning!  It’s the small things when you’re a 30-something.

Here’s a little link love to read in between chest-bumping your bros during the big game this weekend.

Happy Superbowl! The strangest new online fad, a dating app that lets you offer bribes, and people who live in Wal-Mart parking lots – AFTER THE JUMP!

Chinese Lanterns

Happy Friday, everyone!  Hope you have something fun planned for this winter weekend!  I am going to be bundled up at home trying to kick this insane bark-cough thing I’ve got going on.

Hit me up on social media (via the buttons up there on the right) – let’s swap stories.  You’ll tell me about your awesome weekend, and I’ll tell you about my bed sores.

Here’s a little link love from me to you: Cracking secret codes, Superbowl Bingo printables, break-up kits, and a headset that makes video games harder to play the more frustrated you get – AFTER THE JUMP!

Ice Skating in Central Park

Happy Friday, everyone!  While we brace for the possible return of the polar vortex over here (sounds like a bad Michael Bay movie), you might notice a few new things about the blog this weekend.  I’ll be launching a new design!  I’m super excited about it and hope you like it, too.  If you don’t, talk to your therapist.

Here’s a little fun snooping for you to do around the internet this weekend: Starting with - these lawyer parents who made their daughter sign a tooth fairy affidavit after she lost a tooth! Continue reading

Royal Baking Powder

Happy Friday, everyone!  What are your plans?

I’m going to be baking, baking, baking.  My mom used to bake for days around Christmas and give our closest friends theses elaborate plates of cookies to nosh on over the holidays.  So – for the first time – I’m trying to do it, too, just because it makes me feel close to her (though all of the recipes I chose could be made by a goat – nothing too hard).  Wish me luck – hope I don’t burn down the house!

In case you’re standing in neverending lines to buy your last few Christmas presents this weekend – here’s some fun reading to help you kill time! …AFTER THE JUMP – incredible gingerbread houses you won’t believe, the best tv mash-up you’ve ever seen, and shoes you would sell your children to own!
