Some thoughts:

1.
Yesterday I went to a new dentist who scaled my teeth so decisively that I felt like she’d removed them from my mouth and run them through a sandblaster. She just got right up in there with her tartarhooks and gleefully just plowed my mouth. My whole skull was reverberating with the thoroughness of her calculus-blasting. She’s awesome. I’m debating inviting her over to tackle the grout in my shower.

2.
My beloved Blundstone low-top shoes are falling to shreds- leaving actual chunks of the soles in a trail behind me like sad rubber breadcrumbs. The salespeople tell me they are much too far-gone to resole, and the style has been discontinued. Two years ago I saw an identical pair, in pretty good shape, in exactly my size, in a thrift store, but didn’t buy them because buying duplicate items makes me feel like a crazy cat lady hoarder. I deeply regret this decision. Duplicates of everything from this day forward! I will store my duplicates in plastic bins and stack them against the walls of my apartment in tottering piles!

Thank you Elliott, for directing my attention to whatever this is.

Arrested Development Family Reunion

October 3, 2011

If you “like” the New Yorker Facebook page, then hit the “Facebook Exclusives” link on the left side of that page, you can watch a 97-minute panel with the entire cast and the creator of Arrested Development. Lots of great tidbits about the show and fun news about the prospect of a movie. I was planning to listen to 10 minutes of this. That was 97 minutes ago.

It’s 2am and I need to be asleep, not helplessly giggling at a YouTube video. Too bad, sucka. Paste/Sauce.


Kurt Vonnegut shows you how stories go

My favourite story is probably: “Girl gets lonely and hungry. Finds charming and adorable person with hamburgers.” But these are pretty good, too.

Full transcript of this talk is here. Can we just overlook the weird “primitive peoples” part? Really, Kurt Vonnegut. Come on. Anyway, the rest is funny. Via Kottke.

I dunno why Vimeo links never work for me. Anyway, watch that video; it’s great. 3 minutes. Via Dooce.
