- I have been on a break from sugar since the first of August. It’s been a good thing, even though I’m pretty sure that any man who took a two-month break from sugar would have lost about 15 pounds. I, on the other hand, seem to have plateaued after losing approximately 4.25 ounces of water weight. Anyway, I feel better when I’m not eating sugar, so I’ll consider that a win, but I have been craving sweet stuff like crazy the last two days. I have no idea why. However, I can tell you that nothing sounds better to me right now than some sort of molten chocolate lava cake with really good vanilla ice cream melting over it.
I also wouldn’t turn down some apple pie or a donut.
I was hoping that telling you all of that would make the craving go away, but now all I can think about is when apple pie has that crispy, buttery, crumble-y topping. I’m about to fix myself a glass of ice water, though, so I’m sure that will make this whole SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME CHOCOLATE situation so much better.
- The new Mumford & Sons CD, Babel (not always kid-friendly, just FYI), has completely captivated me and prompted grad school-like levels of wanting to analyze lyrics. It’s so bad that I may have to start a club. Or a support group. Whichever.
- I mentioned this on Instagram the other day, but my most recent trip to the grocery store left me more convinced than ever that the Greek yogurt craze in this country is officially out of control. WE’VE HIT OUR LIMIT, AMERICA.
- I realize that this video of Jon Hamm & Adam Scott re-creating the opening credits of Simon & Simon will only appeal to a very specific sense of humor, but oh, it tickles me. I will probably watch it 92 more times, mainly just to marvel at their jackets. If you want to skip all the mockumentary stuff, the “new” credits start around 8:50. And the original credits are at the end.
Remember when shows had minute-long theme songs?
- I am convinced that there is no graphic in the 21st century that causes more anticipation and/or curiosity than this one right here. It’s what call waiting was to the 80s.
- Thinking about Simon & Simon led to a major YouTube rabbit trail of TV shows’ opening credits in the 70s and 80s.
The Internet is glorious, you know?
