Things I'm Going To Miss About My House

I'm moving out of the ol' crack den, and into another town house with an identical floor plan. And yet here are the things I will miss (in no particular order):

1) Wacky dance parties at night in a well-illuminated room in front of the window.

2) The ghost.

3) The decorations (i.e. portraits of first ladies, tapestry of dogs playing pool, creepy painting of a child).

4) Two ant farms, no ants.

5) The fear that I am turning into one or both of the Edies from Grey Gardens.

6) Anti-gravity crate.

Chuck Jones > Isaac Newton

Just a little cartoon physics on a Thursday night. Now watch more Looney Tunes. Doctor's orders.

On Language

"Guppy" and "snoop" might be two of the cutest words ever.

All Omnivore, No Dilemma

Screw you, Michael Pollan! You can't tell me how to live!

Popsicles prevent death. Spread the word.

What I Gave My Sister For Her Birthday

A tree branch soaked in shampoo and conditioner, just like I promised.

I am the best sibling ever.

In A Fit Of July

Venn Diagram Day '09 was an unqualified success!

Try this game at your next Venn Diagram Day celebration:

Have everyone write an assortment of nouns on little slips of paper. Each person then draws two out of the pile and has to make a Venn Diagram of those two words. Hilarity ensues!

Other fun Venn Diagram Day activities:

-Fly a Batman kite while listening to the theme from Batman!
-Do Jazzercise in the park!
-Make an unintentionally erotic-looking Venn Diagram cake!
-Have your friend make enchiladas for everyone!
-Blow bubbles!
-Go for a swim!
-Watch Jaws!
-Build a Fort of July!

Hope you guys had a great Venn Diagram Day! I sure did.
