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.

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.
