Man, was I cranky this week. One weensy little cold had me whining on the couch and complaining to my dear husband for days. I am a wimp. He is a saint. I am going to go do something nice for him (like … I dunno, laundry. Who doesn’t like clean laundry?) You, in the meantime, enjoy these links.

What happens when you get a Twitter stalker … and it’s your dad

The wittiest comebacks of all time. Happy to see my literary idol, Dorothy Parker, made the cut.

Urban Outfitters find itself in hot water again, this time by describing items as “Navajo” (a term which, incidentally, is trademarked by the eponymous nation). What’s most amazing is the caliber of the comments. Some of them are downright insightful.

—————

American Airlines blocks Twitter on a troubled flight (a man started screaming, forcing an emergency landing). The rest of the internet still worked, prompting the question: security precaution, or PR move?

—————

Steve Jobs on why he wore turtlenecks.

—————

Confused by Occupy Wall Street? Here it is, explained in chart form.

—————

The work of Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen makes me contemplate man’s relationship with nature. It’s also really pretty to look at.

—————

I’ve just recently discovered Parks and Rec (and kind of can’t get enough of it). Consequently, this site dedicated to translating common food names into Tom-Haverford-speak is amazing.

—————

I really, really miss Mad Men. This Tumblr blog of Pete Campbell’s bitch-face is only marginally helping.

—————

8 things you probably didn’t know about The Wonderful World of Disney (There’s a speakeasy!)

—————

Maybe I’ll make him some cookies, too. I mean, you can’t eat clean laundry.

  • Crazy sky on my morning walk, and despite a childhood spent in Florida, it took me a while to realize that rumbling sound was thunder. I made it back just a few minutes before it started pouring down.
  • Look at these perfect little fuckers my husband ordered for me. Thanks, @emeraldpalate for the recommendation. So excited to try these. #notanad
  • Made a thing. Apple berry ginger. It bubbled onto the crust. It always does that. I need to figure that part out. Fewer vents, I think.
  • Ugh, hard same, gems. Hard same.

Watching this sweet show made lockdown a little easier. #stevenuniverse #stevenuniversefuture
  • It is the apex of privilege that I can walk around my neighborhood, face covered, and know that no one will think twice about it. Trying to be more aware of that privilege, and how I can use it for good. But even talking about it feels self-congratulatory. #irunwithmaud
  • When Alison Roman says to put her slow roasted salmon on a bagel, you do it. This was just lovely.
  • This is the team up I've been waiting for. ❤️❤️❤️
  • Had a video podcast call today. Host joked that the dress code was formal. Challenge accepted. (I've never had the chance to wear this dress out.)
  • Make Kouign Amann, they said. It'll be easy, they said. You definitely won't set off two smoke alarms, they said. #quarantinebaking #kouignamann #instadesserts
  • Would I go so far as to call myself a baking genius? Yes. Yes, I would. 😅

My family is from the south, so we would call this pizza bianca ("white pizza) - and nobody really made it at home. But I became obsessed with it when we went to Genoa, and Rand and I seek out whenever we're in Liguria. We may have canceled our Italy trip, but I'll be damned if I'm not eating all the carbs. #saminnosrat #focaccia #saltacidfatheat

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.
